Red, Blue, Pink, Orange, Yellow, Black, White..There are as many colors as there are Kenyan tribes. You can drown in the confusion of having to decide on a specific color to guide your wedding day. Not forgetting the fact that each color comes with other shades within. The spectrum between dark and lighter shades is enough to drive someone nuts!
This is where a seasoned planner like Weddings and Events by kui comes in. You may fancy yourself an insightful authority on color themes but trust me, when it gets down to business, doubt slowly creeps in. All these wedding magazines and shows have just made things even tougher. It’s near impossible not to admire the different colors on display. And then there is that small fact that color combination is an issue to consider when there is more than one hue in play.
Deciding what will work best for you can be simple with these basic tips.
Preference comes First
What’s that one shade that you’ve been in love with since forever? If you had to describe yourself using one color, what would it be? Go for that hue that jumps to mind when you think of your happy place. Let that form your base. It will be hard to get disappointed with the end results if it’s your favorite color.
Consider the Surrounding
Where exactly will your wedding take place? Look at the primary décor elements and decide if they work for or against the color you have in mind. While pink or a lighter red may be awesome for a garden wedding, chances are it may clash with a vintage indoor venue, whose predominant colors may be rich earth tones like brown.
Work with the Weather
The season of your wedding plays a big role in determining what could be a successful color scheme. Some shades work better for a warm day while others will complement a cooler weather exquisitely. Your planner would be able to guide you on this.
Number of colors
A bride may want to work with more than two colors to break the monotony. The bridal party could rock a shade that differs from that of the venue. You are allowed to work with as many as four colors but please ensure that they complement each other. You don’t want to leave attendants feeling overwhelmed and unable to take it all in.
