It seems like wedding season just ended, but it’s slowly but surely creeping back up on us!
We’ve been super busy here at Waterford with design meetings and booking season, and we are so excited for all of the events that are happening in the coming months!
If you follow us on Facebook, you were the first to know about our 2nd Annual Crystal Clear Vision Event that we are putting on in March! The announcement of our event felt like a good time to do a blog post on some tips when it comes to choosing your wedding color palette. If you attend our event (tickets here!) you’ll be able to see fully designed reception tables, but in the meantime, here are some suggestions to help kick-start your planning!
Find Your StyleFinding the style you want for your event is a good first step in creating your wedding color palette. Doing this will set a particular “tone” for your wedding and then ideas can start to form. A good example would be if you choose to have a classic, romantic wedding. After choosing this style, blush tones, champagne, and gold elements become a great color palette to achieve that classic, romantic feel.
The venue that you choose is also an important piece in deciding your color palette. Although it’s not a make or break decision, taking into account the various wall textures, carpet color, and overall look of your reception space is a key element in picking colors. You want to make sure your color palette is complementing the venue so you won’t end up with crazy contrasts. However, draping and excellent lighting can take care of these issues if necessary!
Although there is no particular “rule” about what colors can or should be used for each season, considering the season of your event can help in creating your color palette. You can save money by using flowers and accessories in the colors that are available at the specific time of the year you’re getting married. For example, we see vibrant colors in the summer compared to the bold or neutral hues in the winter!
