The First 5 Steps to Picking Your Wedding Color Scheme
Blush or navy blue? Get a head start on picking your wedding palette with these tips.
3. Talk to the groom. Yes, we went there. Bring your guy into the conversation. It’s true that some grooms don’t want anything to do with the planning (and that’s fine with many brides), but since it is a big day for you as a couple, you should ask him to weigh in. He may not care if you choose navy versus cobalt, but he also might not be thrilled to have his entire day filled with cotton candy pink details.
4. Get inspired. Now’s the time to really look around and see what you’re drawn to and what you actually like. This is also
a good time to find out what you really don’t like. Browse the web, go on Pinterest, look through bridal magazines and keep
a file of things (patterns, prints, design elements) that inspire you.
5. Play with color combinations. As you get closer to making a decision, it’s time to experiment with your favorite hues. You’ll most probably have one strong color and one accent (or two, at most) that’ll help balance out your signature look. Pick up swatches (or break out the Powerpoint!) and see what kind of feeling you get from the colors you’ve chosen.
