Wedding Color Palettes

March 15, 2010

I love the seasons – each with their own distinctive colors, smells, temperatures, clothes, foods, etc. That said, I firmly believe that the seasons – lovely as they are – do not have to dictate your wedding colors.

If you bought a house during the fall would you paint every room in jewel tones and decorate with cornucopias year round? No – you would choose colors that you love, that compliment your style and furniture. Similarly, be open-minded about your wedding hues as well.

When choosing colors, keep these things in mind:

– Explore different tones and hues of your favorite color… you just might find inspiration there.

– Don’t be afraid to think back to childhood – you were more fun then anyway!

– Draw inspiration from your favorite color in your home.

– Refer to paint chips – they are also great source of inspiration.

– Stick to 3 colors or less – more than that turns into a rainbow.

Having said that, here a few color palettes that I came up with for use year-round. Let us know in the comments which one is your favorite or share some palettes of your own!

    I’m a little partial to palette 4, but I can see some really beautiful things created out of the others too.
