Choosing a wedding theme is one of the first steps on the busy timeline of wedding planning. While some brides and grooms go with an elaborate theme that has to do with a motif, season or an idea, many couples simply pick wedding colors as their theme. Simply focusing on your wedding colors can make planning much easier and more straightforward. One of the most popular colors to start with is a deep shade of blue. Then, you can start creating your vision with navy blue wedding invitations that can be the base of your color scheme.
When you go with wedding colors as your main source of inspiration for your celebration’s style, it’s a good idea to choose two complementary colors. If you start with navy blue, you may want to add white or another shade alongside it. Then, you want to pick an appropriate venue that can allow you to showcase your chosen hues. Once the venue has been booked, you may want to send a preview of the event with a save the date magnet you customize with your colors. Then, it’s time to start thinking about your wedding party’s dress. Most brides choose their gown to be white or ivory, so the only color decisions would be related to the bridesmaids and groomsmen. Work with your bridesmaids to choose dresses in the style and shade that most matches your vision. Groomsmen can wear vests or other accessories in your chosen color.
After the dress, then, it’s time to select décor details in your favorite color. Tablecloths and flowers in your selected shade can be used throughout the ceremony and reception. You can even have bursts of color elsewhere, such as your signature drink during the cocktail hour or in your wedding cake. Once everything is over, thank you friends and family with a meaningful message in a thank you card you personalize with your wedding colors.
