You have probably been dreaming about your wedding day for quite a while. Whether you know your wedding colors or need a little help with the final decision, there are few things you should know about color. Keep reading to explore these tips for your wedding colors.
The Psychology of Wedding Colors
There is a little psychology behind color. Color affects mood and alters perceptions, even the taste of food. Not everyone sees or experiences color in the same way, but there are some general associations to think about when choosing your wedding colors. Warm colors, such as vibrant reds and oranges, are stimulating and intense. Cool colors, such as blues, greens and pinks, are calming, clean and evoke a sense of happiness. Blue represents features in nature, such as the sky and ocean. Green symbolizes nature and serenity.
Dominant and Accent Wedding Colors
Envision your wedding day and the colors that excite the energy and mood you want to fill your space. Your theme might choose your color palette for you, but if it doesn’t, choose one dominant color that will stand out as the controlling color in the room. The dominant color will need a couple accents. A combination of colors will create dimension. Too many colors can be overwhelming, and not enough will be felt. Pick two colors with contrasting hues that are on the opposite side of the color wheel and coordinate with your dominant color. As a general rule, your wedding colors should be limited to three.
Flowers add wedding colors, life and season to the romantic affair. If you are searching for blue accents, consider blue peonies, roses, ranunculus, tweedia, larkspur and delphinium. Yellow is the color of happiness, and sunflowers provide just the right amount to all of your centerpieces. Accent with vines of greenery and a touch of white orchids. You might consider cymbidium orchids, tulips, ranunculus, daffodils, roses and carnations. If you are dreaming of purple, fill your centerpieces with violet roses. Accent with greenery, white roses, bouvardia and bagonias. Consider lavender, anemone, bittersweet nightshade, cattleya, orchids, calla lilly, candytuft, waxflower, lilac, aster and hydrangea. White weddings are easily created with elegant white wedding flowers. Imagine your bouquets and centerpieces with white anemone, hydrangeas, gerpoms, tulips, snapdragons, carnations, alabaster rose gypsophila, dendrobium, orchids, dahlia, peonies, hybrid poppy, ranunculus, godetia and queen Anne’s lace.
The Color of Your Wedding Dress
While classic white wedding dresses are tradition in Western culture, brides are daring to add a little color to their nuptials. Trends are ignoring traditions and getting bold with wedding colors. Black is one of the boldest colored wedding dresses that breaks all the old rules. Wearing black on your wedding day is a classy fashion statement, and a powerful symbol of sophistication.
