Choosing wedding colors is one of the most exciting aspects of planning a wedding. It is where you can allow your creativity to run wild. However many brides and grooms fear that too much color can make a venue look tacky; well, I am here to tell you that there is nothing to be afraid of! Be BOLD! Pick your favorite color and run with it. The key is to find a color or a small group of colors (3-4 tops) that best suit you and your significant others personality and blend them.
Think about the primary color, red, blue, and yellow. Together these colors may sound like a disaster put when paired with soft pinks, ivory, and hints of gold, you’ve got a pretty fab design. Remember there are many shades of every color, so if you love strawberry red and you’d like to incorporate blue and yellow look for mutes tones such as navy or pastel yellow. This allows your red to pop without overpower your eyes. It is not about saturating your venue in just one or two colors, rather to find creative ways in which you can include your colors. For instance, adding fresh strawberries on your cake to bring out pops of red, adding soft yellow flowers such as Craspedia’s with baby’s breath, or even navy napkins on your table topped with a rose or a sunflower.
These color collaborations are a great way to add great style and design to your wedding. So go ahead bring out your inner seven year old and color away, let your imagination take you places!
Other great color combinations you may not think of can be:
- Tangerine Orange, Wasabi Green, and Ivory.
- Strawberry and Lime.
- Ivory, Aqua, and Peppermint Red.
- Shades of Orange with Sky Blue (for all your gator fans this could be fun!).
- Classic Lemon and Lime.
- Soft Mint, Pastel Pink, Hot Pink, and Metallic Gold.
- Lavender and Green.
- Lemon and Gray, with Succulents in your centerpieces.
- Eggplant Purple and Hot Pink.
Remember to have fun with it, 3-4 colors are just enough to tie your design together, any more than that can become too busy to you and yours guests eye. They key is to have the right balance and contrast amongst your colors.
