All About COLOR!

Is trying to pick your ceremony's colors leaving you a little green? Color plays an important role in many ceremonies and events. It can really set the mood and determine the atmosphere for you and your guests. Every color is beautiful, but making the decision on your color scheme can seem like a huge commitment. No need to worry! We have the answers to some frequently asked questions about the color wheel.

What if I haven't picked a color?

As mentioned earlier, committing to a color scheme can seem daunting. Luckily, it doesn't have to be! If you have no idea where to start, how about going to get a manicure? Yes, really! Not only will it relieve stress, but spend a little extra time picking out a nail color. What do you like or dislike? For an even larger selection, head over to your local home improvement store. Play around in the paint aisle! Look at all the different paint chips and try to narrow down your selection by taking just a few of your favorites home. Looking at all these hues together will help you understand what direction you want to take your design palette.

How do I make my favorite color work for all seasons?

If you have narrowed down your choices, but can't quite make up your mind, consider the season of your wedding. Inspiration from the time of year can be a creative catalyst for seasonal design. Consider blue and yellow. This is an inspiring scheme, but different tints of the color are little changes that produce big results.


Pale yellow paired with robin's egg blue will create color-in-bloom.


Bright yellow and aquamarine achieve a summer time color wonder.


Harvest gold and rich navy blue reflect the hues of autumn.


Burnt yellow and icy blue will make you want to cozy up.

What are some of the newest trends in color?

For the coming summer and fall seasons, purple of all shades is popping! Many are pairing this royal hue with green. Also, black is back. Though not traditionally used in weddings, this color with a punch of color is becoming more and more popular. Navy coupled with yellow will soon be emerging on the wedding scene as well.

Go with what you love and feel confident in your color decisions!
