{wedding wednesday: the colors}

Today’s Wedding Wednesday topic is going to be so much fun! There are some brides who have known exactly what they’ve wanted in a wedding since they were a child. Others need a little bit more inspiration than that, when the time comes.

The Colors

There are a few things you need to take into consideration before choosing your wedding colors.

The options for color combinations are almost endless, and it’s even become popular for couples to not have a color combination at all. Instead, some just like to go with their theme or venue, and choose elements that work with it.

Another option is to use one color in different hues, or use neutrals {grey, nude, white, cream, etc.}. These two are very popular, and I think we will be seeing a lot more weddings in the future with color palettes that don’t involved multiple colors.

I love all these combos, especially the one's for summer, romantic, vineyard, and ranch. I have no idea what I want my colors to be yet, but I think I could easily choose so many palates from here that I would absolutely love :)

All these color combos are so fun! I love the romantic look. I had these for my wedding: grey and pale pink. I love the bouquet! So dreamy!

I'm definitely one that needed inspiration. And based on this I'm using fall colors (purple & grey) in May! eek! IS that horrible?
