Selecting colors for your wedding is one of the first decisions involved with the planning of your wedding. With so many colors to choose from, it may appear to be a daunting task at first.

Research Color

Before selecting colors for your wedding, there are a few things to take into consideration as you make your choice. Questions to ask before you begin include; location of your ceremony, the time of year, and are there any cultural or traditional aspects that might affect your choice? For inspiration, grab a current bridal magazine or attend a wedding show to learn about the latest color trends for weddings.

Matching Color

The science of matching color has existed for hundreds of years and proven to be very helpful in the world of art, design and decorating, particularly for special events such as weddings. Understand that not all colors will harmoniously pair with each other; use a color wheel to check color compatibility as you search for your perfect color combination. A color wheel is a circle chart that organizes colors in sections to compare and contrast their relationship to each other. Generally, most weddings will have a palette of one to three colors. Color may be organized in a number of ways including complementary, analogous and monochromatic.

Favorite Colors

Sometimes choosing colors for your wedding can be an extremely easy task, especially if you already have a favorite color. Using your favorite color is a great way to reflect your personal sense of style and individual uniqueness.

Choosing Colors Compatible With Your Venue

If your wedding or reception is taking place at a distinctive venue, consider the surroundings of your location when deciding on colors. Look around your venue to surmise if there is color dominancy present. This might be found in a number of ways such as wall paint, furniture, carpet or drapes.

Considering the Season or Holiday

Keep in mind the time of year as you choose your wedding colors. Each season features its own palette. For example, colors for a summer beach wedding might reflect the vibrancy and intensity of the warmer months. If getting married during the holidays, think about colors commonly associated with these special days including Christmas, Halloween or Fourth of July.
