Honestly until now I didn't think much of wedding color combinations. I mean aside the traditional white color. But I did some research recently regarding wedding color scheme and some combinations I found just made me wish I could get married right away! They are so beautiful.
When I think about wedding priorities I think about wedding gown, professional make-up, ring and DJ. But now wedding colors will definitely be one of my priorities. And for good reason too. Warm bright wedding colors add to good wedding pictures. And wedding pictures last forever.
To avoid a wedding colors mismatch however, your wedding colors have to be the first thing you decide on after answering in the positive to "Will you marry me". That is because your wedding colors affect every aspect of your wedding; dresses, decorations, table cloth, invitations etc.
Honestly the average Nigerian doesn't do wedding colors match as well as it's done abroad. And it's understandable. White wedding isn't our culture afterall.
But as they say what is worth doing is worth doing well. If you want to have a white wedding make the effort and pay attention to your wedding colors match, it will reflect well in your pictures and the cool environment you'll create alone with good color matching will make your wedding guests think highly of your wedding.
Your favorite color, favorite flower and the wedding season color. Seasonal wedding colors is not common with us though, but abroad there are different wedding trends for different seasons such as spring, summer, fall and winter.
But those are just a guide because your wedding should reflect your personality. But what if you're like me that doesn't have a favorite color and a favorite flower?
Let the color combinations below inspire you in creating your own wedding color palette.
For example if someone had suggested a mint green color to me as a wedding color I likely would have been confused of what exact color that is. But now that I see it in pictures I'm crazy about mint-green and its different variations.
I wouldn't suggest you follow wedding color trends because that may mean using a color that you don't like just to keep up with the trend. But if you do like mint-green, then I read in the December 2012 edition of the Wedding Planner magazine that seasonal wedding planners have predicted that the color mint is going to be hot for 2013 and likely beyond. And I'm really not surprised because mint as you'll see in the wedding color combinations photos below is a very refreshing, elegant and clean color. And it can be mixed with visually any color; yellow, aqua, lemon, just name it.
Use the following photo color combinations as inspiration to pick your wedding colors. Your wedding colors should not be more than 3 in total with one to be the dominant color except you're using different shades of one color.
Once you've decided on your wedding colors stick with them so your wedding colors can be organized. To ensure that, have a paper or small cloth samples of your colors handy all the time so you can easily refer them. And let everyone who will be contributing to your wedding planning, tailor, cake baker, make-up artist etc be aware of your colors and make sure they use your the actual color you want, not closely related because usually most colors have different variations and you want your wedding color combination to match and make you look professional not amateurish.
