Let’s Talk About Color

There are tons of color combinations to choose from for wedding colors.  For the reception I want tons of BRIGHT colors.  I’m talking bright blues, reds, oranges, yellows, and the like.  I don’t want to look like a pinata walking down the aisle and decorating the ceremony venue is limited, so I’ll save the potential bright colors for the reception.  I also don’t want it to look like a rainbow exploded/threw up so I’m thinking about narrowing it down to 2 or 3 colors.

Aqua is one of my favorite colors so I want to incorporate it or at least some sort of blue.

Red is just plain awesome, especially for a wedding color.  Red + White + Black = amazing.  It might be a little overdone though.  Tons of brides have red on their dress or as an accent.  I want to be a little different.

Orange is awesome too.  It’s bright and goes well with Aqua or Blue to make an awesome mixture of color.

I’m thinking maybe I’ll do Aqua and Red and Orange together but it’s not set in stone.  I think I might do the majority of accents in Aqua/blue and Red and then maybe add other touches of orange.  I might then add other pops of bright colors into the reception, like Yellow and Green and maybe even Purple and Pink.  Again, I don’t want it to look like a rainbow exploded or I’m trying to put on a crazy rave.

I have some photo inspiration below.  Something to keep in mind when I’m looking at colors. More
