Although it may not seem like that big of a deal, the color scheme you choose for your wedding can totally influence everything about it. You want your Big Day to be a truly pleasant experience for everyone involved – and the ambiance you create through the décor can make a pretty big difference. Obviously, color is a huge part of all of that.

How to pick the best color scheme for your wedding? Here are some tips to keep in mind:

· It’s not about the trends. Sure, the trends can provide you with a pretty good source of inspiration – but if you don’t like this year’s Pantone Color, for example, you can definitely skip it altogether and settle for a color combination you actually like. You want to be looking at your wedding pictures years from now and like what you are seeing – you don’t want to cringe every single time you remember your bridesmaids’ dresses or the way the tables were decorated.

· It’s a mixture of personality and message. Want your wedding to be really energizing and youthful? Go with bright, bold colors. Want something soft and romantic? Pastels and nudes are what you should be into. Allow your personality to shine through with these colors – it’s your moment to shine and you should use every element of the Big Day to tell your love story.

· Don’t fall into the same old clichés. It can be tempting to decorate a nautical wedding with navy, red, and white and it can be tempting to settle on nothing but green, brown, and maybe a touch of red with a very rustic wedding. However, don’t feel afraid to go beyond that. Create color combinations that are new and exciting if you want your wedding to be unique!

· Don’t forget about the venue. These days, most color combinations can be used everywhere for a special effect. But in general, you should still keep the venue in mind – it is, after all, the “canvas” upon which you will paint your wedding day, in your chosen wedding colors.
