Let be real for a minute here; it’s your wedding day, and you should be in charge of all of the decisions of what type of wedding menu will be served and what your bridesmaids or groomsmen will wear, but that is not always the case. Sometimes mothers or future mothers-in-law take charge, and your wants and wishes get pushed to the side. Generally, though, you will have control of one thing, and that is the color theme for the wedding. This may not seem like a big deal, but it is the colors you select for your wedding that affect the theme, unity, mood, and, most importantly, express our personality.
You may be asking why is color so crucial in helping you pick your theme? Well, let me tell you. Say you’re selected more cool colors such as blues, browns, and grays those colors would be great for a formal, sophisticated, or winter theme. Maybe you chose warm colors such as yellow, green, orange. These colors would be great for a spring, whimsical, or country theme for your wedding. Certain colors are seen more with some themes than others. I am not saying that you can’t have a winter-themed wedding with pastel pink, purple, and white but not commonly seen. The great thing about color is that it can bring unity across the wedding. For example, you’re not sure what color to get the plates and table clothes consider using one of the wedding colors you selected, and it will make tie into the flowers and a matching wedding program template. By having a color scheme, it can take out the guesswork and bring all the elements together.
The mood of an event can be one of the most memorable things your guest will remember. They may forget what type of food you served or who was invited, but most people, when thinking back on an event, will remember how they felt and the vibe they got from an event. One of the quickest ways to set the mood of your event is the color scheme you select. There is a whole subject out there on color theory that you are more than welcome to explore, but for the sake of your wedding we are just going to say the color combinations you select will affect how your guest feel and what they will think of your special day so choose wisely.
The most unique and essential thing about ourselves is the personality that we have formed through our life experiences and hardships. Weddings are supposed to be fun and show a representation of who our future spouse and ourselves are. Color is a great way to express your personality in your wedding. Color speaks to us all, and we all have options on certain colors, even if we don’t think we do. The color we surround ourselves within our daily lives says a lot, and there is no better way to share a part of ourselves than through color.
Whether you like cool or warm tones, the decision is yours. Don’t be afraid to try out some different colors until you find what most fits you. Color is fun, so don’t think too hard about it and dive right in. Whichever direction you decide to go to your wedding colors, the wedding will be uniquely yours, so enjoy it.
