help with colors!
Posted: Jan 21, 2010 3:35 PM

I love fall colors, i.e. burgundy and burnt orange. However, i am planning on getting married 7/30/2011 (fall 2010 too soon, fall '11 too far away). Some people say those colors are too dark for summer, some day evening weddings (like mine) it doesn't matter. Should I pick a third accent color to lighten it up, like gold? should i forgo the combination altogether? or should i just pick one of them, but not the other? I'm not a pastel-y, girly, or fancy type of girl. please give some suggestions. Thanks!!

Your color scheme for the wedding has the power to set the vibe – so choose wisely. Focusing on the color theme early on is important to ensure that everything else obtained for the wedding is well coordinated and suited to the wedding as a whole. The colors are completely up to you but you will need to take into account where you're getting married, and the formality or informality of your ceremony and reception.

The complexity or simplicity of color schemes are another part of your decision and these will depend on your personal preferences, budget, and patience! Here are the top determining factors to selecting your hues.

1.Use your favorite shade. You’ve been in love with pale lavender since the first grade, so this is a good place to begin – with what you love. You can tastefully incorporate any color into your wedding decorations by selecting the right hue, and combining it with the right accents.

2.Consider the setting. Look at the colors used in your venue’s carpeting, drapery and decorations. If the site has strong colors, you’ll need to select a color scheme that complements. If you already have your heart set on a certain color, you may need to select a more neutrally decorated site but this needs to be sorted out very early on or you may miss out on a good location! However, keep an open mind about colors until you've chosen the venue, because the setting may well suggest the color scheme for you.

3.Be prepared to have two different/distinct color themes if your church or wedding building and reception venue are very different in tone. In general, it is probable that you will have more leeway to use colors with the reception than where the wedding ceremony itself is held. However, you can still carry the color theme in clothing and flowers from the place of marriage to the reception, even if you can't decorate the church, town hall, or register office as much as you'd like.

4.Enlist your favorite bloom. If sunflowers are your thing, there’s no reason why they shouldn’t make it into your décor scheme. Incorporate your predominant flower color – either making it the dominant shade or using it as an accent – and it will all come together.

5.Consult the season. Decorating is simple when Mother Nature is your guide, so let the natural colors of the season be your inspiration. That doesn’t mean that you’re stuck with prissy pastel decorations during spring or brown and orange during fall/autumn. Just make sure that the wedding colors you choose complement the blooms and foliage that are naturally available during that time of year.

6.Remember the bridesmaids' dresses. If you want your bridesmaids decked "head to toe" in your color, you’ll need to make sure it’s an appealing and flattering shade to wear. You may need to accept variations in the shades to keep each bridesmaid happy, especially if it's a color that one or more of them are not happy to wear.

7.Get the groom and best man involved. The cummerbund, waistcoat, and tie can all be in the color theme of the wedding. And don't forget the buttonhole.

8.Incorporate color with care. It is common to have a color palette with up to five main colors for many weddings now but you do need to be careful that the colors don't overwhelm the wedding or create a sense of disjointed themes. Also, exact color matches on everything is overwhelming; instead, go for shade variations on the original colors. Rely on small touches here and there for getting across the wedding color scheme rather than huge bold displays of it, such as the font color on invitations, and little ribbon touches here and there.

9.Take care with color on the wedding cake. Aim for simplicity of color with the wedding cake, as brightly colored food is not very appealing. Use a good cake maker who is familiar with color matching, and also consider adding flowers to the cake to reflect the color element.
