• Colors that are too trendy. Which colors do you naturally gravitate towards- are you a bright color person? Neutral color person? Do you gravitate towards warm colors? Or maybe cool colors? Pick a color palate that you will be happy with when you look back at your pictures.
• Colors that don’t match your venues. You will also want to consider the “look and feel” for your big day. A simple and traditional wedding will require different colors than a modern and fun wedding. Another point to consider is your venue- will your colors match?
• Colors that are predictable. Your wedding is your day, not a holiday. Stick away from predictable color combinations such as red, white and blue or red and green.
After you determine the color direction you want to go in, you will find that incorporating these colors into your wedding can get really creative. You may choose to bring your wedding colors to your bridal party, your cake, flowers or other wedding decorations. The most important thing to remember is that you are getting married, and this is your day, so do what makes you happy!
