Picking Your Color Scheme


Ccpixx Photography by Crystal

Coordinating your color scheme for all of the different elements of your wedding can prove exhausting.  Where do you start?  There are several things you must consider, but for now  we will talk about your venue.

Depending on where you are getting married…say it’s in a hotel…the color of the walls or carpet cannot be changed.    You need to work with the colors that are already there.  You will definitely need to check out the colors in the carpet…you won’t be able to hide this in your photos; so work with those colors.  Take this in to consideration for all aspects of your wedding,  including your flowers, bridesmaid dresses, tuxes, cake decorations, etc.

If you are fortunate enough to have a venue that has neutral  colors….say an outdoor reception or even a venue with a neutral color for the walls….then your options are wide open.   Yay!

This is the main reason we chose grey for our walls….I consulted a photographer friend before we painted and he told me to go with grey because that would allow our customers to use any color scheme they wanted for their event.

As a bride you have a lot to consider…and you want to add the colors that not only go well with the venue you have picked, but also the colors that flatter you…that you love…and that your fiance loves as well.

Happy planning!
