Choosing Perfect Color Theme for your Wedding

Selecting the right shades for your wedding; adding colors to life

Weddings are the most important day of your life. Thus to make it a memorable one, everyone prefers celebrating it in unique manner. Marriage is all about bright colors, decorations, flowers and food. You must select the theme wisely so as to make the total set up appear elegant and special. Thus the theme color you choose must offer a visual unity and make your set up look decent, unique and grand. While selecting the right color for the wedding you must discuss with your partner and family. Take suggestions and then implement as per your idea to decorate the set up.

You can choose your favorite flower shade as the theme color for the decoration. You must select one primary and two accents. Also before finalizing on the shade, just keep in mind, such as;

The season, if summer then select a fresh and warm shade, or a bright purple, burgundy or silver for winter month

Do check that the bridal dresses in tunes with the total theme color or else shades will not match

Do not use too much black. Black makes every decoration look sophisticated but too much of it can effect the balance and it is not good for pictures.

Use soothing colors to make the entire hall look bright and colorful

If you select too many shades. Then remember right balance of shades is very important, or else it will appear loud and un unified

Since the term wedding means unity of two minds it is best to use two shades in the decoration and maintain balance and harmony in the presentation

It is very important to select the right color for the wedding ceremony. The color of the set up plays a pivotal role in setting the mood of the occasion. But the task is not easy; hence you must go through the suggested color shades given below and select a combination from the list;

For Spring and Summer wedding, you may select;
Periwinkle Blue
Mint Green
Ice Blue
Lilac
Yellow and Gold

If you plan to enjoy a chilly winter wedding, you may pick from the following shades;

Navy Blue
Crepe Red
Deep Dark Red
Black
Tango Red
Deep Blue
Cinnamon
Hunter Green

One of the most essential issue needs to be remembered, is that when you mix color you want to make sure they coordinate just right. Some colors are better in the background while perhaps that tango red you have your eye on is apt to stand out for more than the accompanying yellow or gold. Initiate with a base color and follow that with lighter and darker shades in the same color family. Another example would be two or three colors that compliment one another easily. Take yellow, yellow and green and then have the additional green tones accent as well.

You may also do some research on internet, check out photographs of wedding decoration and select the shades. But whatever shade you select, do keep in mind that the theme color must make the special day of your life a memorable one.
