Wedding Style and Inspiration Q&A: Pick Color Palette
How do I pick a color palette?
A color palette typically consists of 2-3 dominant colors, and can include a couple of accent colors as well.
- When picking a palette, start with the venue since there will be aspects of the décor that you can't change. Make sure that the dominant colors you pick complement the venue's color palette.
- Once you have a dominant color or colors in mind, check out some online resources to refine your palette and identify accent color ideas. 100 Layer Cake will often do palette stories, Snippet & Ink has loads of color-based inspiration boards, while Design Seeds is a blog that specializes in color palettes.
- Once you have your palette, stick to it. Color is one of the keys to bringing your wedding design together, but you need to keep it consistent for it to serve this role.
