Picking Your Wedding Colors

One of the thing that so many brides seem to find to be a speed bump in their wedding planning is picking the right colors.

My advice has always been to start by looking in your closet. Face it, don’t you buy the clothes that look best on you? Well it only seems right that the colors you look great in would be a great place to start with the colors you want to surround you on your wedding day. Savvy?

So, look to your closet then look to your venue. How can you make those two work together? Still stuck? Throw the season of your wedding into the mix.

Now that you have some foundation of the colors you look best in and the canvas you have to work with, get busy with some of the best tools on the internet.

These are great for providing inspiration.

  1. I look forward to planning a wedding in December. I like the idea of silver or platinum for bridesmaid dresses. Not really sure of a theme whether it would be blue or purple would be the occasion of a contrasting color or its should be blue or purple robes and an accent of silver.
