Choosing your wedding colors
The colors you choose for your wedding day set the tone for your entire event. Choose colors you love, but also consider the following:
- Where is the wedding and reception? Choose colors that complement the setting. Consider the carpeting, drapery and decor, etc.
- What mood do you want to create? Vibrant colors add drama, while soft colors evoke a more romantic atmosphere.
- What time of year will you marry? The season may influence your color choice. Spring and summer colors tend to be lighter, while fall and winter colors are generally darker.
The following two tools can help you choose a color scheme.
Color Wheel – A color wheel helps you choose coordinating colors. It is made out of three primary colors: red, blue and yellow, plus a blend of in-between colors.
- Color Palette Generator Tool – This tool allows you to upload your favorite photo and generate an instant color palette. You can then print and select your favorite colors from the chart.
