A Fresh Take on Summer Colors
August 11, 2015
Say goodbye to monochromatic color schemes and pair contrasting colors like pink and blue for a fresh take on summer colors! Other equally gorgeous color combos to try are teal and coral, blush and aqua or crimson and mint.
Tips for incorporating different colors into your event decor:
Pick one dominant hue.
When you have narrowed down your colors, decide which hue will take center stage. This choice will most likely affect your decisions on major decor elements such as linens and lighting. If you love aqua, pick a more muted shade for your secondary color, like blush or a soft pink. Thoughtfully balancing your colors is the key to making even the most crazy combinations look chic and sophisticated. Another expert tip: Pick a few shades that are in between colors, like coral instead of bright orange, and plum instead of amethyst.
Include your colors in your invitation suite.
Your invitations set the stage for the event, so let them introduce your wedding colors and evoke the right tone from the start. Coordinating the invitation colors with those of the wedding can be as easy as choosing a colored font, ribbon or monogram, or as elaborate as layering colored paper. Also consider that invites are a dress code cue for your guests. You wouldn’t send out formal ivory cards with black calligraphy unless you’re expecting guests to dress black tie for your wedding.
