Tips on Choosing Colors for a Spring Wedding
While trends may dictate the most popular colors for spring weddings each year, some of you may not want to give in to them and rather choose a combination that will suit your personal taste. Given below are some tips that will help you decide what colors you should go with.
- Consider the time of the wedding. Is it a morning wedding or an evening wedding? A combination of bright and deep colors can be used for the evening, while lighter colors may be used for the day. A similar consideration should be made for the venue of the wedding along with the time of the day.
- Remember that you can add color to your wedding in any form. Table cloths, candles, wind chimes, ribbons, favors, pots and vases (even terracotta pots for an earthy look - specifically for the orange and pink wedding), centerpieces, and the like can be used to add a dash of a vibrant color. Though flowers are symbolic of the onset of spring, it isn't necessary to introduce color only with them.
- Color can also center on your wedding gown. For instance, if you choose the red and white theme, instead of dressing in the conventional white, the bride and groom may be dressed in red while the rest of the crowd may go for white with a dash of red. If you think two colors may get too monotonous, add a third in the form of a deep blue or a leaf green.
- Also think of the mood you want to set with the colors you choose. Yes, spring colors are meant to be vibrant, but they can also be deep, subtle and romantic. Decide a mood with your partner and create the right ambiance with your choice of colors.
In essence, there is no limit to the number of colors you can use in a spring wedding. You want it to look classy and vibrant at the same time, but not just a mere palette of colors.
