and today I came across this great article that I wanted to share to hopefully enspire you when selecting your wedding day colors. With an entire color wheel to choose from, how do you find the perfect combo for your wedding?
Set your eyes on your site.When deciding on a palette, play up the prominent colors of your site or setting. For instance, if your wedding is by the sea, the natural choice is blue. And, if you’re marrying at a country club with navy and maroon oriental carpets, lime green and hot pink details won’t work.
Get inspired by the season.
Let Mother Nature be your guide—they say she never makes a mistake. Pink may work year-round, but light pastels and barely there hues like buff can look washed out in the fall and winter months. In the summer, reserve dark colors like burgundy only for accents.
Do your research.
Become aware of color combinations that you like, whether browsing art galleries or flipping through a stack of home or fashion or interior design magazines for the must-have colors for the new season.
Scout it out.
To choose an exact hue, visit a fabric store or neighborhood paint shop and collect swatches or chips of colors you might want to use. This will help you get specific, so that when you decide on green you’ll know if it’s lime green, Kelly green, sage green, or forest green.
Choose a dominant hue.
Pick one general color first — say, blue — and then start thinking about shades and tints (aqua, robin’s egg, navy) or other colors to accent it with.
