Pick a Color. . . Any Color!

Jeryse Kelly, Guest Author –

Congratulations on your engagement!! What is the next question that usually comes around? “What is the date for the wedding?”

The next question is, “What are the colors?”

Color can be very important not just for a wedding but also home furnishings, events, advertising, etc. Color can bring out emotion, set a mood, create excitement or tone down excitement.

Everyone has a favorite color. Sometimes brides will pick the color for their wedding based on this. Sometimes brides will pick colors based on a theme they are using. Color is fun and should be used to its fullest potential.

Orange – Warm, invigorating, friendly
Yellow – Happy, uplifting, sunny
Red – Action, energetic, bold
Green – New growth, fresh,
Blue – Comfort, homey, soothing
Purple – Royalty, regal
White – Crisp, soft, clean
Black – Dramatic, menacing

Once you have picked your date and your colors, your next step should be to consult a wedding planner/designer. This person can help you with your color selection (hue or shade) based on your dream and vision. An excellent wedding planner/designer will listen to your wants/wishes and will help you makes that dream a reality.

Note from Larry James: 2010 surveys show blues will be the most requested color, complimented with cool pastels and light warm tones.
