Picking wedding colors is not always as simple as imagining your three favorite colors. The colors that will fill your wedding venue on your wedding day are important for all the reasons they matter to your theme, your season and your wedding photography. You will remember this day forever. Here is some advice to picking wedding colors that should help you create a happily ever after memory.
Picking Wedding Colors to Match Season
Every wedding is unique. Not every couple daydreams of a Disney princess or a romantic affair in Paris. Some couples desire an elegant palette of color, and nothing more. Whether you are recreating a theme or adding a unique splash of color to your wedding day, picking wedding colors to match season is a safe way to go. Every season has its own color palette.
The flowers of the season are where we gain our inspiration for picking wedding colors for the season. There is no rule set in stone that says you cannot have spring colors in the winter or summer in the fall, but seasonal colors provide simple color palettes for the choosing. Pick your favorite color trio and go with it. The summer offers fuchsia, rose pink, dark green, violet, yellow, teal and orange. The winter gives us a winter wonderland of color with lots of white, silver, red, gold, orange, navy blue and every shade of green. Spring blooms create colorful bouquets and add pink, light blue, yellow, lots of green and everything pastel. The fall is all about orange, brown, red, gold and terracotta.
Picking Wedding Colors for a Theme
Some couples are all about a theme. Themes make picking wedding colors easy. Every theme has its own color palette, but we are not bound to the colors of the theme. When it comes to picking wedding colors for a theme, we can have fun and create our own creative rendition. A Cinderella theme incorporates blue, silver and white. A Beauty and the Beast theme infuses red, yellow, cobalt blue and gold. Paris is all glitz and glam with sparkling silver, black, pink and white. Feathers and stripes will add texture and definition to your color scheme. “The Great Gatsby” is one of the greatest literary pieces of its time and a fun theme with classy colors. Think art deco era, gold and black with white feathers and stringed pearls to add a little texture. Create a winter wonderland with white, silver and hues of blue.
Inspiration for Picking Wedding Colors
When you are picking wedding colors, a wedding venue can provide the most inspiration. You won’t need to consult a color wheel or overthink a theme or season. The Crystal Ballroom is an all-inclusive wedding venue with an in-house design team and studio to design and create your fairy tale with the colors to match. Consult with the designers, and pick and plan your magical moment, from the colors and fabrics to the flowers and centerpieces.
