So, without further ado, on the second day of Christmas, Mango Muse Events gave to me…
The Gift of Color
Every blog, magazine and wedding planning guide will say that one of the first things you need to do when you start wedding planning is to pick your wedding colors. If you follow our blog you know how I feel about this, because like themes, colors can force you into a box and we don’t like boxes. Many couples feel like they need to pick a certain color because it fits well with their venue, their location, their dress or is trendy. It’s no fun to feel like you are just picking something because you are supposed to pick something. However, your wedding will have some type of color and it is important that the color or colors you want are harmonious with who you are and the feeling you are going for.
So, let’s make this process less painful and more joyful! We’ve got a simple solution, just pick the colors you love. Pick your favorite colors! Pick the ones that make you happy, that make you smile, that bring you joy! Pick the ones you’d naturally choose if you had to pick a something like a cell phone case, a water bottle color, a t-shirt, or a bag. And you can choose as many or as little colors as you like. Maybe you’re a fan of warm colors, so do a combo. Maybe you have always loved blue, so it’s all about blue or maybe you like light colors or bright colors or rich colors. It’s all ok! Don’t feel forced into certain colors or a certain number of colors. Go with what naturally makes you happy and designing your wedding will not only be easier, but more joyful.
