There are a few things which should be considered a top priority when it comes to organizing a stylish, over-the-top wedding, like choosing the location, the decor and the wedding color themes. This last element is particularly important, due to its tremendous visual impact. The color theme should blend effortlessly with all your decorative elements, creating a coherent whole. Of course, you simply adore warm, delicate pastel colors, but you are also inexplicably attracted to those crazy, vibrant shades. So you might have a lot of questions on your mind right now like: How could I pick the right color palette on my own? Should I count on expert advice ensured by a professional wedding decorator? Which elements should I take into consideration before making a decision? Use the tips and tricks provided below to organize the perfect wedding ceremony and reception, while reaching an ideal chromatic balance.
1. Opt for one color scheme and make sure you integrate your favor color in it
Depending on your budget, tastes, expectations and wedding location, you could opt for a simple or a more complex color scheme. Integrate your favorite color in it and then use different tones to make the decor more appealing (sticking to just one color could make your guests consider it dull and monotone). So once you have determined the right shades, now’s the time to order your flower arrangements, wedding invitations, bridesmaids’ dresses, ribbons, cake and all your decorations based on your wedding color theme.
2. Moderation and tastefulness- the key to a classy wedding ceremony and reception
Your wedding day is your chance to shine and to reveal your excellent sense of style. Your decorations and your wedding color themes must be simple and tasteful. Don’t try to impress by investing a lot of money in flower arrangements, ribbons and other décor elements painted in extravagant colors. Also, don’t try to mix and match different colors which have absolutely nothing in common. If you were to follow this approach (especially without consulting a professional decorator) the final result would be disastrous! Keep it simple. A few colorful details are enough to create a stylish ambiance; you don’t need to blend hundreds of shades to obtain something truly beautiful and eye-catchy. Remember that this is not a coloring competition; it is your wedding preparation process.
3. Take potential impediments and limitations into consideration
As a future bride, you definitely have a lot of ideas. You want to express your creativity and your outgoing personality by selecting some of the rarest, most spectacular wedding color themes. Be careful though, you might have to comply with certain rules which will significantly reduce your enthusiasm and your desire to blend colors as you please. For instance, more than a few churches won’t accept out of the ordinary color pallets. In this particular situation, the best option is to choose two different wedding color themes, a softer one for the wedding ceremony, and the one that your heart desires for the wedding reception, to avoid unpleasant situations.
Also, before selecting the ideal shades make sure you visit the wedding location at least once. Some sites may be decorated in a certain manner which doesn’t grant you a significant creative freedom. In this case, make sure the shades included in your wedding color theme are complementary to the main colors of the site. Analyze all the details (paintings, walls, furniture, decorative elements, ceiling and curtains) to be able to reach an optimal chromatic balance. Your wedding color theme and your wedding decorations should send a positive message, expressing your excitement and all your other powerful emotions, but keep it simple; otherwise these important elements will be considered a mere distraction or a tacky, failed attempt to bring out your inner stylist
