Screen Shot 2014-06-24 at 11.13.31 PMChoosing a color palette for your wedding can be fun but it can be overwhelming. There are so many colors to choose from and it’s not always easy to know what colors go best together.

The colors you choose can be incorporated into about every aspect of your ceremony and reception. From the bridesmaids’ dresses to the cake, you can have a variety of colors that complement each other.  You can also use a color palette for your makeup and nails.

If you like the color purple, you probably don’t want everything to be purple. Therefore, it’s a good idea to build your own color palette.

Seasonal colors or holiday colors may fit perfect with your theme. Colors can also create a mood. Do you want something vibrant and bold or something subtler?
