Engaged couples should pick two colors that complement each other and will look perfect together at your ceremony and wedding reception. Consider what your venue looks like; is it urban chic, a barn, a beach, a posh hotel, a wildflower garden, a rooftop, a yacht, a modern museum, a wooded wonderland, a castle, or your favorite restaurant? Think about the time of year when you will be getting married.

When should you choose your wedding colors? Choosing your wedding colors should be one of the first items to check off you wedding planning checklist! Your wedding colors will inspire the look for the rest of your wedding selections. All of your bridesmaid dresses, flowers, and décor selections should be made after choosing your wedding colors. Remember wedding gowns also come in colors! And don’t forget to give the groom and groomsmen a pop of color with a tie, suit lining, pocket square, or even socks.

You will want to consider the season when choosing your wedding colors. There are no set rules but we love earthy colors for fall, pastels for spring, Jewel tones for summer, and Black Tie for a winter wedding. It’s fun to mix in some wedding sparkle using metallic colors like gold, silver, copper, or rose gold.
