Color Inspiration

Wedding inspiration can come from anywhere - current fashions, architecture, nature - you name it.

I remember when I would meet with prospective clients and ask their colors, they would list 2 - and one would be white. Now brides are including 3 to 4 colors and typically bring fabric swatches, pages out of home decor magazines, and paint chips! It's a great starting point!

If you have an image that speaks to you and you want to build your wedding decor around it, there is a great tool, Palette Generator from Big Huge Labs, that can help. This has been around on wedding blogs for some time and is easy to use. Simply upload your inspiration photo and a palette of 15 colors will be generated t select your scheme from.

Another tool that I like is Color Scheme Generator from Well Styled, and is really helpful in determining flower color combinations. Select your main color and see possible combinations based on a monochromatic, complimentary, or contrasting scheme preference. Have fun!
