Picking your wedding colors: sounds like a simple, harmless task, doesn’t it? Well, it is easier said than done, and that is because picking your wedding color is much more than simply bunching your two favorite colors together to bathe your venue. In addition to being a reflection of the taste and aesthetics of you and your partner as a couple, the color palette also has a huge impact on setting the tone and theme of your wedding. And not to mention, it decides, to a large extent, just how gorgeous your wedding photos are going to be. So, how exactly do you choose your wedding colors? Here are some tips to help you with that:

1. Consider the venue

Use your ceremony and reception venue(s) as a source of inspiration for the color palette. After all, the venue does play a crucial role in setting the tone of the event. Venues like barns and outdoor areas, which are blank slates, make it easier to choose the colors. For places like hotels and halls, work off the colors that are already present in their existing decor.

2. Think about the wedding season

While your wedding colors don’t need to align with the season, some colors just lend themselves naturally to specific times of the year. So if you feel confused while making the decision, look to the wedding season for some color inspiration. For instance, rich jewel tones work great for winter weddings while bright colors are more summer-appropriate.

3. Think personal

Do you and your to-be-spouse have a favorite color? Is there a color that holds special meaning for both of you? Take these little things into consideration with your wedding color choices, which will make it all more personal and intimate.

4. Don’t stick to the obvious or fall for the trendy

You don’t always have stick to the obvious theme colors for your wedding. For instance, if you are having a traditional South Asian wedding, you don’t have to choose only rich colors or pastels. Pick whatever feels authentic and organic to you as a couple. Also, if you want your special day to be unique, it is okay to veer away from the current trends.

5. Choose what makes you happy

At the end of the day, your wedding is about you. It is a celebration of you and your partner’s love. This means that you should choose something that both of you love and consider meaningful. Nothing else should matter.
