I’m back with WeddingWire to talk about choosing wedding colors and how to incorporate them into your wedding day. Your wedding colors are so unique to you, your venue and time of year, but I remember in the early planning stages being so overwhelmed by the choices. Admittedly, I am still (at t-minus 13 days!) trying to incorporate one of my colors from my original color palette.

I really wish I had known about WeddingWire’s color palette generator tool It helps you select by season, then primary color and complimentary colors. Once you’ve selected a palette there’s a link to view real weddings that used similar colors. So useful!

The one piece of advice I could give would be to pick something that’s fairly simple and then build from there. I started with just two colors and have incorporated a bit more since then. It’s really tricky to make choices almost a year away and then stick with them.

If you’re at a loss for where to start, try going to a florist and browsing some of their choices. You’ll want to make sure that what you like is available during your wedding (or you’ll find out the hard way how much it costs to ship peonies from California). That was a good place for me to start and include colors that were harder to incorporate into bridesmaids outfits, linens, etc.

Also, don’t forget that the WeddingWire Snapchat Filter is another great way to incorporate those little details. I can’t wait to show you ours!!

If you are planning a wedding or have just gotten married, what were your wedding colors? How did you choose your palette? Leave a comment for other brides-to-be to be inspired!
