Color Palette for a Wedding
A wedding is such a hugely important occasion for all concerned that feelings and emotions can run high, therefore, a little planning in advance will help to ensure a smooth performance!
After all, when the day is over you are left with memories and photographs for many years ahead - so do consider the picture you are creating!
I've recently been asked to create a color palette with ideas for wedding colors - the only decision the bride has been able to make so far is to choose Save the Date cards! But that's OK because it indicates her initial color preferences.
All I've done so far is to take the colors and extend them into a wide color palette from which the bride can begin to select and piece together almost a 'mood board'.
There is no doubt that initially a color scheme should be worked around the bride and what suits her natural coloring, but there are sometimes other things to consider.
The groom may wear a uniform or other costume; the venue may be particularly distinctive and need to play a part in the decision for a theme.
Apart from the Bride and Groom, gowns must be chosen for the bridesmaids, both mother's and flowers together with decor for the church and/or venue.
There are lots of emotions at play when a wedding takes place so everyone's feelings should be taken into account.
