Finding Your Perfect Palette: Tips for Choosing Wedding Colors

Choosing the perfect colors for your wedding can be a daunting task. You want everything to be perfect, but there are so many options to choose from. And let’s be real, some of the color combinations out there are just plain bizarre. So, to all the frustrated brides out there, let’s take a moment to commiserate and laugh about the struggles of choosing wedding colors.

First up, let’s talk about the overwhelming amount of options. It’s like a rainbow threw up on Pinterest, with endless combinations of hues, shades, and tones. And don’t even get me started on the color names. What exactly is “blush” supposed to look like, anyway? Is it pink? Is it beige? I have no idea.

And then there’s the issue of trying to please everyone. Your mom wants something classic, your best friend wants something trendy, and your fiancé just wants to wear whatever looks good with his favorite sneakers. Suddenly, choosing wedding colors becomes a diplomatic mission, with everyone’s opinions weighing heavily on your shoulders.

And let’s not forget about the pressure to be unique. In a world where Instagram and Pinterest reign supreme, it’s all too easy to fall into the trap of wanting to have the most original, eye-catching color scheme. Suddenly, you’re considering colors like chartreuse and fuchsia, and you start to wonder if you’ve lost your mind.

But perhaps the biggest challenge of choosing wedding colors is dealing with your own indecision. One minute, you’re convinced that navy and gold is the perfect combination, and the next minute, you’re convinced that you should just ditch the whole thing and get married in a potato sack. And let’s not even get into the debate about whether or not black is an appropriate wedding color.

I chose colors and a style/theme only to change everything 2 months before the wedding! My original plan was to have my bridesmaids wear nude, the florals were a mix of tropical and dried and the vibe was very TULUM. I drew up a tablescape including florals and fresh papaya on the tables –

(the look was heavily inspired by this beautiful Tulum wedding) but I had chosen this theme early on – before I had actually gone wedding dress shopping and when I realized that I didn’t actually like Boho dresses on my body, I knew this theme wasn’t for me.

But fear not, my fellow frustrated brides. There are some silver linings to choosing wedding colors. For starters, you get to be creative and express your own personal style. Whether you opt for something classic or something quirky, your wedding colors are a chance to show the world who you are as a couple.

And let’s not forget about the joy of discovering unexpected color combinations. Who knew that mint green and peach could look so good together? Or that mustard yellow and deep purple could create such a stunning contrast? When you finally land on the perfect color combination, it’s like a moment of pure magic.

And of course, there’s the fact that no matter what colors you choose, your wedding day will be perfect simply because you’re marrying the love of your life. So whether you end up with blush and bashful or navy and gold (or something totally off-the-wall), your wedding day will be a celebration of your love and commitment to one another.

In conclusion, choosing wedding colors can be a frustrating and overwhelming experience. From dealing with endless options to trying to please everyone, there are plenty of challenges to overcome. But with a little humor and a lot of patience, you can create the perfect color scheme for your wedding day. So go ahead and embrace the madness, my fellow brides. It’s all part of the journey.
