Wedding colors

Think Seasonally

Similar to your wardrobe, your wedding colors can be inspired by the season your wedding is in. For example, pastel colors are perfect for spring, where deeper colors like plum purple and navy blue are perfect for winter weddings. This may help you decide if you are stuck between two color pallets. But even if you are having a winter wedding and wanted your color pallet to be pastels, you should go for it! Don’t let the season that you are having your wedding dictate what colors you can and can’t use. It is your wedding and there are no rules.

Set the mood

Another thing to keep in mind is what mood you want to set at your wedding. If you want a happy party mood, then lighter and vibrant colors will help set the tone. If you are going for drama, then a dark and jewel tone pallet like ruby red, black, emerald, and gold would be a better choice than pastels. Think about the style and atmosphere you want and choose colors from there!

Don't overthink it

Colors do not have to play the major role at your wedding. They are definitely important, but do not stress over it. If you found a photo on Pinterest that you like, don’t keep searching because you think you will find a better one. And remember, not every part of your wedding has to match perfectly. Instead, try to have your mood and textures figured out. That way everything else will fall into place!
