     Before you begin picking décor or even selecting your bridesmaids’ dresses, you have to decide on your wedding colors. Choosing your wedding colors doesn’t have to be super difficult. You just need to ask yourself a few questions about the sort of mood you’d like to create. Vibrant colors tend to evoke a sense of drama whereas softer colors create more of a romantic feel.  How to choose a color combination that’s beautiful, meaningful and really personal? We have some tips for you – so read on, find out more, and inspire yourself to create stunning wedding décor:

     First of all, think of the surroundings. How does the venue look? Did you choose the rustic Carriage House Stable, or the elegant French Country Inn? What colors will compliment the venue best? You can even find inspiration in the natural landscape!

     Even more, what is your wedding season? Generally, Spring brings about fresh, light, or soft pastels while the cooler months inspire richer tones like burgundy, emerald or navy.

     Keep in mind the seasonal flowers! Floral design can have a huge influence on the overall look of your wedding. The flowers you use in your ceremony, reception and bouquets will most likely depend on the season, which helps narrow down your color choices.

     Also, think of ways to add uniqueness to your color scheme. A bit of texture can work like a miracle and it can add a lot of style to the entire décor – so don’t be afraid to get creative with this! With a winter wedding comes cooler weather. Spice up your wedding attire with a fur coat or wrap, it also serves as a great way to stay warm. Since we are in the midst of winter, you can’t go wrong with a fine tuxedo or suit! Always a timeless and elegant option.

     Last, but definitely not least, consider the vibes you want to create at your wedding too. Are you inspired by bohemian, romantic, or edgy wedding fashions? Do you want something suave and delicate? Pastels will most likely work best for you. Do you want something simple, yet elegant? Think of a monochromatic color scheme. Do you want your wedding to feel vibrant and full of energy? Introduce one or two bright colors and mix them with neutrals for a dash of sophistication.
