Question from Shannon:
I don’t really know what colour i want to use because almost everyone use the same colour in our community. My favorite colours are baby blue, lime, hunter green, and my bridesmaid are all fair skin. Could you please help me choose a colour soon. Oh yeah, my brother is using the same colour I was going to use.
Answer from Bridal Expert Angela:
Hi Shannon, and congratulations on your upcoming wedding. Blue, lime green, and pink are a classic colour trio (called triadic) that works really well for weddings. Hunter green goes really beautifully with ivory/cream and burgundy. This video on how to choose your wedding colours should be helpful to you.
When choosing your colours, keep the color tones the same. For example, in the triadic colours explained above, either go with soft blue, soft lime green, and soft pink, or keep all three colours bold. The colour tones should be the same when you are combining colours.
Remember that using whites, browns, and blacks are all classic, and because they are neutral, you can punch up the drama with a single bold colour. Think black and white with punches of red. Or, brown and white with accents of yellow or yellow and melon.
There are so many choices, and you are only limited by your imagination. Look at bridal magazines (and other magazines) to see the way colours are put together, and you are sure to get many more ideas.
Good luck, and if you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
