Today’s blog post could have been titled: Any color + white + ivory = rich and sophisticated wedding colors.
I selected these photos to illustrate how simple orchestrating a successful color scheme for your wedding can be. It can be tempting for planning brides to freak out a little bit with so many colors to choose from–and it’s not always straightforward for non-designer types to find the combos that are fresh and attractive. So, perhaps you’re a bit overwhelmed with color and how to use it at your wedding. You can always try out this formula: Pick ANY color that you like. One that makes you happy, or makes you feel love, or simply makes your heart sing when you see it. Now add two whites. You might have to experiment here. Maybe it’s the icy whites that set off your main color. Or perhaps you need to go the other direction, toward buttermilk or vanilla ice cream. I promise that when you find your color’s mates in the while family, the combination will read as rich, complex and sophisticated.
Recipe for success? Your favorite color plus two whites. Give it a whirl.
