Choosing two contrasting or complimentary colors to make the big day more vivid is something brides have been doing for years, and no wonder. It makes the ceremony and the reception more colorful and allows for beautiful decorations.
Unless you’re a very untraditional bride, you’re probably looking at a white wedding gown, possibly considering adding colorful shoes or jewelry to it as a means to brighten your wedding day look. Just because you’re likely to wear white and have your groom don a muted, conservative color like black, gray or navy blue doesn’t mean you should cut color out of your wedding. In fact, choosing two contrasting or complimentary colors to make the big day more vivid is something brides have been doing for years, and no wonder. It makes the ceremony and the reception more colorful and allows for beautiful decorations. All you have to do is decide on the colors and then ways to use them.

Bridesmaids dresses are typically where you’ll find the wedding colors, along with flowers carried by the bridal party and used to decorate the aisle and the tables. Before you have the fabric cut or order the bridesmaids dresses, though, take some time to choose your colors right. The first thing that comes to mind is to go with your favorite and choose a shade that is complimenting or contrasting it beautifully. But just because you like a color, doesn’t mean it’s right. Remember that you will most likely want your friends to wear bridesmaid dresses in that particular color, and you’ll want to incorporate it throughout the reception, so consider availability and the color’s suitability. You don’t want a bridesmaid to look ghastly in a mint bridesmaid dress or the florist to have to bring flowers from across the country.

Once you decide on your wedding colors you need to decide where to use them. You don’t want everything in those colors, but you do want them. Start with the bridesmaid dresses and the flowers. Remember that you can mix the two colors to create more colorful flower compositions, or to have centerpieces in one color and buffet table decorations in the other. Same goes for bridesmaids, you can have dresses in one color and flowers in the other, or you can mix and match them for a more vibrant effect. As for other uses of the colors, incorporating them into your cake design is always a good idea, whether you go for colorful fondant flowers or pretty ribbons to decorate it. The groom and his groomsmen can easily wear the right shade ties, the chairs can be tied with colorful ribbons for decoration, the DJ or the band can use colorful lights and the caterer can focus on adding your colors to plate decorations. It’s all a matter of the shades you choose, as seasonal, more natural colors will be easier to come by while more artificial ones can prove more problematic.

No matter if you choose cherry red, easy to manage on bridesmaids dresses as well as on plates of food, or you go with an iridescent green that is limited to jelly beans as far as food, the most important thing about color in your wedding, aside from the two tones working well together, is the right balance. Proportions play a key role, so as much as you don’t want to flood the whole reception hall with color, you also don’t want to make a small speck in a sea of white tablecloths. If you balance the background color with your wedding colors, though, you’re sure to have picture perfect wedding worthy of the best in color photography.
