I can’t believe my wedding is only 5 months away! It still seems like a long time, but once the summer hits, time is going to fly by. Matt and I are both easy going, so this whole wedding planning process has been simple and, for the most part, headache free. We have all our vendors picked out, we chose the food we want to serve at the wedding, I picked out the bridesmaid dresses, and we’ve even decided on our favors!
Before all of this could happen, however, we needed to choose our wedding colors. We chose our theme pretty early on because I sort of knew what I wanted. Once we decided that we were getting married in Vermont, I started saving all sorts of things on Pinterest for inspiration. You can check out my Wedding Board here!
So, how do you narrow down the plethora of ideas on the internet to choose the color/theme that works best for you and your soon to be hubby? Well, I’ve compiled a few questions to ask yourself that really helped me during this process.
What Is The Setting?
As I mentioned earlier, Matt and I are getting married in Vermont, so I was able to use that as inspiration for my wedding colors. The venue itself as well as the location are really helpful in determining which color palette will look best. To me, a Vermont wedding screamed earthy muted tones. So, my wedding colors are a mixture of mauve, white and some beautiful greenery.
When Are You Getting Married?
Time of year plays a huge role in your wedding color selection. Deep reds along with some greenery are very popular in the winter months. If you’re having a spring wedding, shades of pink work great, while a brighter coral is perfect for summer. You can obviously choose any color you want, after all, it is your wedding! If you’re planning on getting married in the winter but love coral, then go with coral.
What Vibe Are You Going For?
Your wedding colors will set the mood for the entire wedding. If you’re going for something more dramatic, I would say colors like gold or bright red would be more your style. However, if you’re looking for something a bit more relaxed and subtle, light pastels might be a better choice.
For Matt and me, the choice was easy. We wanted something that felt relaxed and easy going because we felt it fit our personalities well. Once we decided on a color scheme, everything else sort of fell into place!
I think the most important thing to remember is that this is your wedding. This is the biggest day (or one of) of your life and you want it to represent you and your fiancé well. Don’t overthink it, just do what makes you both happy!
