Choosing a Wedding Color Palette
The wedding colors will likely be one of the first things you and your groom choose for the big day. They set the tone for the day whether it’s glamorous or casual and ultimately drive the look and feel of the rest of the wedding like the bridesmaid’s dresses, flowers and even sometimes, your dress.

If you’ve already chosen the venue for the big day, take your venue into consideration when picking the color palette. If you’ve chosen an outside summertime venue like a ranch or a vineyard, play up the surrounding colors of the environment like greens, whites or neutrals. Does your banquet hall have gorgeous stain glass windows? Highlight the gorgeous colorful windows with gemstone colors like emerald, burgundy, and ruby. Next time you visit your venue for a walk through or planning take a look around for color inspiration!

We’re pretty sure you have a favorite season, so don’t be afraid to schedule your wedding during your favorite time of the year. Each season has its own set of complimentary color palettes you can get inspired from. For example, fall isn’t traditionally a season that’s considered for a wedding but during this season there are a lot of gorgeous colors to work with. During fall, gem stone colors really come to life and complement the warm autumn tones found in leaves.
It’s time to get inspired! We’re pretty sure you’re already on Pinterest. But if you aren’t, get on it now! It’s a huge source of inspiration for everyday life and especially when it comes time to plan out a wedding.
On Pinterest, you can find inspiration on beautiful color palettes and how they’re used in real life weddings. Pin an entire board with color inspiration and see which colors stand out to you.
Stay True to Yourself
Ultimately, this is a celebration that reflects you and your future hubby so don’t get too caught up in opinions and being trendy. Choose what speaks to you as a couple. Was your first date during the autumn months? It would be beautiful to incorporate a color palette that reflects the start of your beautiful relationship. Stay true to who you are as a couple and you’ll have a gorgeous day!
