Like the interior design, choosing the right colors is critical to setting the perfect scene for your wedding. The way you incorporate it into the wedding décor, where you use it and the hue you choose can make a huge impact on your big day, break the event, or even highlight it into a spectacular one.
We sat down with Amy Nichols, CEO of Let’s Celebrate Events wedding decorations specialist to get schooling on all the various rules of picking the right wedding color palette.
Let’s face it, everyone will probably ask you a billion times about what your wedding colors truly are (this is something that is common among all brides). However, the good news is that if you have no exact clue, this is something perfectly fine. Yes, it is! You necessarily don’t need any wedding colors. However, adding some colors can help you take your event a notch higher, and you need to use some wildflowers and linens as your inspiration. The best idea here is to think out of the box and go for some garden based wedding parties, or an outdoor reception. You do not need to settle for something that is not what you prefer, and you do not need to have a particular set palette.
It could be that you are not head over heels for ultraviolet (the Pantone color of this year, 2018), mint or coral, you do not need to choose these colors simply because they are the leading trend. Every year, new trends come and go, (as the old styles of the 80s show), so you need to choose colors that you love personally and not the ones you saw trending on Pinterest or feel as though you need to use them.
Although a neon wedding is possible to organize, you may find that it takes a hard time to find all the flowers that match the theme colors. The best bet here is to stick to color palettes that include some natural shades so that your décor and the flowers do not clash with each other. For example, you can go for some simple white roses that complement any bright shades, whereas the bold and dull ones will just transform the venue into a dull one.
If you end up choosing many hues for your overall wedding, the entire look will seem disjointed, unless you are considering a field of wildflowers. Otherwise, Amy recommends that you commit to just three colors maximum (including a metallic one) to ensure that everything appears cohesive. You can use natural colors such as beige and gray, or if you want, you can go for other low-key colors.
For example, if the wedding venue has some rich red curtains, and removing them is not an option, a light orange color hue will turn out to be a clash. You need to keep the natural colors of the venue in mind and select an appropriate venue. You should not try to hide or cover any of the colorful elements that you do not like, as it probably maybe noticeable.
