Wedding Colors Theme
Have you decided on your wedding colors yet? Choosing your color scheme is difficult and should not be put off.
Let’s talk about the possibilities and make a decision because you can’t do any planning until you have chosen your color palette.
The above photo is a great example of a two color scheme that works well together. The bridesmaids dresses, favors, centerpieces, bouquets and hall lighting, all were done in blue and yellow.
Your florist and baker will want to know your color theme before they begin making any recommendations. Besides, having specific colors gives a sense of unity and elegance that you will not find if you haphazardly throw a bunch of colors together.
Sometimes your bridal choices are driven by: the season of year, the preset decorations, carpeting, wall paintings, lighting fixtures, size of your bridal room and your individual tastes.

Decorations for Your Hall
It’s a good idea to take into consideration the colors of your reception hall when choosing your wedding colors especially if the room has strong colors. By that I mean, if the room has very dark colors you may want to brighten the room up by using some neutral or light colors. Conversely, if the reception hall is decorated in bland neutrals adding vibrant colors will add life to the room.
