Remember the Season
We love pastels and soft pinks for a sweet, romantic feel, but the general theme tends to lend itself towards a spring or summer wedding. Embrace the season of your wedding and allow your colors to enhance the day even more! Fall wedding? We love those moody shades of burgundy, navy and dark green! Summer? Bring on the bright colors!
Check Your Surroundings
Picking colors can only go so far, if you don’t think about what looks best on the bride and groom! Of course, you may naturally want to pick a bridesmaid dress color that looks good on your girls – which you totally should! Just don’t forget to think about the fact that your wedding party will be surrounding you throughout the day and in pictures! Remembering this can help you choose a color that also looks great next to you and your future hubs. Likewise, make sure to consider how your décor and attire colors will look against the colors in your venue space!

Stick to a Few Key Colors
Keeping your color palette to three to four colors will help your décor from looking overwhelming and busy. Being selective in your colors will allow your guests to appreciate the details of your wedding day and keep your style cohesive. Neutrals, metallics, and pops of texture can be combined to up-level your centerpieces without looking crazy. What’s this look like? A main color for flowers, pop for a napkin color, a neutral wood accent, and mercury glass candle votives, just for some inspo!
