This year the popular "Pinterest"
wedding colors include, navy, coral, pink, blush, red, lavender, turquoise,
black and white. Choosing colors from this list would be a very safe choice and you are assured that the entire wedding market is awash with ribbons, fabric, candy almonds, invitations, etc., everything you may need for a wedding. Choosing a
bold color scheme like Christmas red and holly green may seem like a great idea, just remember that if your wedding is in mid-June, good luck finding all the wedding doodads that you'll be needing in red and green. They won't be on sale at Michael's until at least the end of July.
the season of your wedding. Choosing a wedding color that represents the
natural beauty of the season will always work. If it’s an outdoor Spring or
Summer wedding, consider light colors and stay away from black or dark gray.
Current Spring season wedding colors include blush pink, soft yellow, blue
or green. A few Summer colors that are hugely popular the year are pink, ivory, mint, and various shades of blue. Fall
colors will include darker and bolder shades in general, including burnt orange
and strawberry which represent the changing colors of the leaves. For Fall 2016 we are also seeing navy, grey,
eggplant, and olive. Winter themed colors are filled with a contrast of light
and dark. Very important this year will be moody, almost Gothic colors including black, navy, burgundy, ice, lavender and sage.
flowers and their respected colors are more important in a wedding than one
might think. Think about the guy’s boutonniere color and the bridesmaid’s
flower colors. These flower colors are usually matching so as to compliment
each other nicely. Also take into consideration the flower colors that will make up the centerpieces
for the tables or the ones decorating the church or wedding site. Traditionally those flowers are a neutral white or ivory with just a touch of the wedding theme color. White may sound a bit boring but there is a very good reason why a softer neutral look for the actual wedding has always been popular. Just imagine a bride wearing a white, neutral dress completely surrounded by hot-pink and teal flowers. What is the first thing that you would see in every photograph? It sure won't be the upstaged bride.
selecting groomsmen's tuxedos or suits and accessories, keep in mind the season of the year. For a Spring or Summer wedding, perhaps have the guys wear a light colored
outfit. The tuxedo or suit could be tan, white or silver gray.
During the Fall and Winter, dark colors should prevail for the tuxedos or suits. This Fall and Winter the
black, navy, burgundy or charcoal looks will be everywhere. A nice touch is to choose
accessory colors for the groomsmen, their vest, bowtie or neck tie, in a complimentary color to the bridesmaid’s colors.
When it comes to the Groom, select the right color for him. Forget Pinterest and all the bridal magazines! Select a tuxedo or suit that is flattering to the groom, both this build and coloration. A burgundy tuxedo may be just what you envision but can your light complexioned, blond hair and freckled fiancée really wear burgundy without looking totally washed out? Choose a tuxedo or suit color that is perfect for the groom, one that looks as handsome on him as does the bride's dress look beautiful on her.
the wedding colors are incorporated in the venue by the table cloth, napkin, flowers,
the cake, and more, so make certain to choose your colors wisely. Select colors that will
turn the venue into an atmosphere of beauty. Choosing from the popular color
palate or one based on the season will always be a winner. Do not necessarily
choose a favorite color if it won’t create a glamorous look. Overall, when
choosing wedding colors, it’s important to be creative, be true to yourself,
and have fun.
