Once you’ve chosen the date and the venue for your big day, the next question people are going to be asking about is your colors.
Your colors will set the theme for your wedding and allow your guests to better understand what type of event they’re attending. For example, if your colors are neon green and pink, your wedding will most likely feel very different from another wedding whose colors are maroon and gold. But choosing your colors is hard! Usually, you will have two main colors that will set the theme, and then other complementary colors to build off of it. To make it easier to narrow it down, keep in mind that your bridesmaid will most likely be wearing one or several of these colors.
For this reason, it’s important that you choose shades that will not only flatter your friends’ skin tone, but your own as well. Suddenly, hot pink is a bit trickier to pull off.
Instagram, Pinterest, and wedding blogs are a great way to get initial ideas for the feel of your wedding. Do you like rustic wedding in a wide barn with fairy lights overhead? Or do you prefer elegant weddings in glamorous ballrooms with chandeliers overhead?
Choose either one of these styles and you will see thousands of color suggestions start popping up.
Another method is to simply ask your future bridesmaids what shades they like to wear. Don’t feel hemmed in by needing to only have one particular shade for your bridesmaids’ dresses. Instead, offer them one color and permit them to choose a shade within that family that flatters them the most.
If you’ve spent any time on wedding blogs, you’ve probably seen your share of the classic bridesmaids’ colors. However, if you’ve seen to many royal blue and burgundy dresses, and would like to choose something new, try one of these five stunning colors.
