Your wedding should be a wedding to remember, and not in a bad way! Here are some notes on what NOT to do with your colour palette.
1. ignoring your venue colour
Take into consideration the venue and its colors when choosing your colour palette for your wedding. Your colour palette should not clash with the venue colors as it will stand out in a negative way.
2. Make sure to see the mock up for your flowers
Make sure you are aware of how your flowers will look before your wedding. When you imagine how your flowers will look on the day you obviously imagine something beautiful. It would be a shame not to check up with your florist before the wedding. Nobody likes a negative surprise.
3. Contrast, contrast, contrast!
If you do not want your wedding to seem boring, think of contrast. There has to be a slight color/shade difference.
4. complimentary colours
These colors are set to grab attention but this sort of attention is not good for weddings. When picking complimentary colours choose wisely.
5. Too much colour
The best choice is to use two to four colours for your wedding scheme. Too much is too much.
6. colour ration
Watch out your colour ratio. Too much dominant colour usage is not good for the eyes.
7. mixing different textures
No matter the colour, your textures will always produce a different effect. When the textures are too different the effect is very negative and not pleasing on the eye.
8. think of the invitations
Make sure you implement your wedding colors everywhere.
9. don’t force it
Attempting to have your flowers to be the same colour and blend in is not a realistic expectation. Instead choose colours that will blend with your theme and not look out of place.
10. watch out for the mood
Different colours and different flowers make for a different mood. Make sure you choose according to your theme and ideas in order to project the right mood.
