Wedding Themes and Colors: Which One Should You Go For?
Choosing the perfect wedding theme and color isn’t actually the same as picking your two favorite colors, putting them together, and making them the foundation of all of your wedding detail. Well, there are actually some of the things that are worth considering in order to have your theme and color match with the place and the season. As a help, here is a guide on how to choose a wedding theme and color.LET THE SETTING OF YOUR WEDDING INSPIRE YOUBecause the location is one of the first things that should be finalized, the color palette that you have always been thinking of can be a help in order to have the right venue. Well, you can think of the ideal color to choose, but you can also decide whether the theme and color would depend on the wedding venues that you know or the other way around. If you have found a place that you really love but doesn’t match with your choice of colors, then maybe you’ll want to switch up a shade or two so you won’t have to spend much effort, time and money for things to distract everyone that the two don’t match. If your venue is more of a converted warehouse, you can definitely add as much or as little as you want to for your own wedding theme and color. If you’ve already finalized the venue, use it to come up with a perfect color scheme. DO NOT FORGET YOUR PRIORITIESEven though the venue has always been the biggest priority we all should be considering, we should also never forget the other details that might come before choosing your wedding theme and colors, too. If you’ve always desired of a wedding with overflowing orchids around, then that can be your clue on pointing out your palette instead of thinking of how to insert it later. Remember to always pick your wedding style first before deciding on anything. THINK SEASONALLYJust like how each clothing trend, the wedding theme, and color should be inspired by the time of the year. For spring, rosy pink can be perfect and a brighter coral scheme can be a summer staple. Fuchsia paired with other jewel tones make up a fall and a wintery combination can be a blush and silver. But remember, you are not required to stay away from your favorite colors just because of the rules for seasonal color. These are just one of the few things to consider when choosing your wedding colors. SET THE MOODThe wedding theme and color also sets the mood of the big day. If you want to have it in a full load of dark aesthetic, then a dark palette like ruby red is a better choice than pastel colors. Consider the style and atmosphere you want your wedding to have: do you want it to be relaxed or nostalgic? If you’ve already decided, think of what colors first come to mind. Remember, guests always notice those wedding details, too! FOCUS ON WHAT YOU LOVEThe colors that can be seen in your home décor are definitely the ones that you love and you can live with for a long time. Check your clothes and accessories in your closet, and the first color of which you are drawn to can be your starting point for choosing your wedding theme and colors. OF COURSE, A LITTLE (OR MORE) RESEARCH COULD HELPLook for great sources of inspiration such as magazines, art galleries, blogs, or even a friend’s wedding. Definitely, we do not want to choose colors just because they are in. thus, checking art designs may help in finding a color and use it in a new way.

TRY TO CONSULT THE COLOR WHEELYou actually do not need a degree in picking up a palette for your wedding dream, however, you need to go back to the basic principles and follow it. Usually, colors that go opposite to the color when are the ones that make a perfect combination because one is cool and the other one is warm. Also, colors that are neighbors are similar to each other and share a primary color. One tip: a classic palette for your wedding theme and color is a bright saturated one paired with a neutral one such as gray, blush or gold. DO NOT O-V-E-R-T-H-I-N-KStop or never drown yourself in the thought that you really have to get a strict wedding palette. When asking and finding out the right hues, remember that it doesn’t need to have a major role in your wedding. They are just meant to inform you of further wedding decisions like bridesmaid dresses, flowers, bouquet, etc. and it doesn’t mean that every single detail of the wedding matches perfectly. Therefore, do not focus on the wedding theme and color along, but also, think of other matters such as the mood of it. Have you decided on your wedding colors and themes? Let us know!
