Date picked. Venue booked. Now the design process begins! We suggest the first step to take is to determine the what your event's color palette will be. You will use these colors to make most of the decisions along the way but picking the palette isn't as easy as picking your favorite two colors. We are here to help!
Consult the Wheel!
No need for a degree in interior design or art, just follow the basic principles of color! Choose colors that are either have opposite attributes (warm and cool) or colors that are considered to be neighbors (share a primary color). We suggest going to your local hardware store and going through all the color paint chips. They are a great way to choose a color and once you have chosen you can take chips to keep to refer to during your design process and at your vendor meetings!
Set a Mood
Your color palette is the most important design decision you will make. You will use color to help set the mood for your wedding day. We suggest that you think about the day and how you want it to feel. This will help you determine which direction you are leaning towards, dark and dramatic or light and airy.
Look to Your Venue
Your venue will help you decide on a color palette. Are you getting married in a barn in the fall? Are you getting married in the middle of winter? Let your venue speak to you! Instead of working to transform the space, use the space to bring your vision to life. Be sure that you choose colors that work with the different locations of your day.
Greenery is the color of the year for 2017! Mix it with taupe, grey and cream, you have the trendy minimalist design. Beautiful, simple and elegant.
One of our favorite combinations! Mixing soft peach tones with pale greens and blues creates a color palette that is sophisticated and works well in any season.
