While white is still the predominant color of choice for most weddings, we are, however, getting more and more adventurous in our wedding themes and styles. Choosing the perfect accent color for your wedding is one of the most important steps in planning a wedding. The color palette you choose is going to help with every other planning and decorating aspect. Here are a few tips to help you find your wedding color palette.
Adding color to a (white) wedding setting
A white wedding is, in fact, never entirely white. Contrasting colors and accent colors are always needed to add a bit of nuance and texture to your wedding. But, since everything goes with white, narrowing down your colors can seem overwhelming.
Take Inspiration From the Venue
The first step is to look at the venue. What does the venue offer regarding style, architecture and colors? And, how can you incorporate those colors into your wedding? Look at the floor, the walls, and the decor. Look at the types of materials that are used, like hardwood floors, or metal light fixtures. Even if you don’t choose these colors to play a bigger part in your wedding, you’ll want to make sure that the colors that you do choose don’t clash. If the venue is white and a blank canvas for you to create your dream wedding, then you’ll need to look for other inspiration to help you find the right colors.
Take Inspiration From Nature
Colorado has an abundance of nature and breathtaking views to draw inspiration. But, to narrow down your choice, look out the windows of your wedding venue. If you choose colors from nature, be careful not to choose a dominant color that will become too prominent and overwhelming. If you choose green to accent your white wedding inside the venue, keep it simple and subtle. But, try to choose a few of the more subtle colors that you see, and then draw those colors inside. That will also make your venue feel bigger, as you start to blur the lines between indoors and outdoors.
Take inspiration from the seasons
Remember that you often choose the venue many months before your wedding. You may book a venue in the fall or winter for a spring wedding. If you are drawing color inspiration from the nature surrounding the venue, remember to choose the colors that will be present during the season of your wedding.
