Preparing for a wedding can be a bit overwhelming because of the many things that you have to take care of such as decorations, food, music, invitations, venue, and favors or souvenirs. For the decorations, one important thing that you need to consider is the color scheme. To help you decide which color or combination of colors you should choose for your wedding, here are some tips and ideas.
In choosing wedding colors, you have to decide the theme that you want for your wedding. Some popular themes for weddings are renaissance, Hollywood, sports, medieval, movie, book, or country, to list down a few. You can choose appropriate colors based on your theme.
You can also base your wedding colors on the month, Holiday, or season when you will have your wedding. You can choose spring, winter, Christmas, Fourth of July, Halloween, autumn, summer, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and so on. However, you should be careful not to overdo the colors especially if you have a Holiday-themed wedding. You do not want people to think that they are attending a Christmas party instead of a wedding party with a Christmas theme.
You can combine colors or you can choose one dominant color. If you are using more than one color, think about the color wheel. Remember what you have studied in art class about matching or contrasting colors.
You should also consider your decorations. Can you easily find decorations with the color that you have chosen? Think about the centrepieces, your bouquet, your wedding gown, your bridesmaids’ dresses, and so on.
Another great tip for choosing wedding colors is to just choose whatever you like. No matter what other people will say, it is your wedding and you should be happy with your wedding colors or whatever you have chosen for your wedding. After all, this should be the greatest and most memorable day of your life.
