Choosing Your Wedding Colors

Choosing your weddings colors can be one of the most difficult and important aspects of planning your wedding. But it doesn't have to be so hard! You just need to ask yourself a few important questions to get you on the right track.

One of the first questions is what sort of mood you'd like to create. Softer colors create a romantic feel while vibrant colors envoke a sense of drama and boldness. Although the final decisions are completely up to you, I would highly suggest taking the season into consideration as well. Darker colors complement the Fall and Winter while softer colors are great for the Spring and Summer.



A few other things to take into consideration are the main colors of your venue as well as what is most flattering on your bridesmaids. Nothing would be worse than choosing your colors just to realize on the big day the color of the walls around the venue wash out the pretty colors of the bridesmaids dresses. Or possibly worse yet that the color of the bridesmaids dresses aren't quite as flattering as you had hoped.

Here are some gorgeous color palettes.

Purples & Gold

Aqua & Emerald


Red & Black



The possibilites are endless-have fun with it!

Some Spooky Wedding Fun!

In light of Halloween tomorrow, I’m feeling festive and thought it’d be fun to see some Halloween wedding ideas! Wither you go with a gothlic, dark theme or a more light-hearted fun theme, there are so many fun options!

    
If you're hosting an outdoor ceremony or reception, this is a beautiful entrance! The glow of the pumpkins set a magical theme.



Two great ways to relate your theme to your guests.
 
 
 
 
I especially love this sign-Welcome to our
Hallo-Wedding...come in if you DARE!
Now this is adorable--the perfect little Halloween Flower girl!   



Little pumpkins make perfect place cards, and 'potions' and pumpkins as centerpieces would be simple and cute. Make up a fun drink and it gives your guests something to sample during cocktail hour!


 






 


               
 Personally--this might be taking it a liiittle too far...
but hey, to each their own! However, get a few manikins
and dress them up as the bride and groom, set them at the entrance
of the reception and it makes a fun trick to play on your guests!
 

 

       
 
Very cute and creative use of pumpkins and decor! You can also hollow out a large pumpkin, put a bowl or some sort of liner inside of it and use it as a punch bowl.



Depending on how far you are wanting to take your Halloween theme, you can even have a pumpkin cake! 

  

And I've saved the best for last...
 




 If you're having a Halloween themed wedding, carmel apples are an absolute must! So is this adorable pumpkin to tie it all together!

 
 
 
I hope you've enjoyed the spooky fun! Have a great Halloween and for any of you Halloween brides-I hope you get more treats than tricks! :)
