How To's

From blushing salmons to emerald greens, wedding color palettes aren’t the easiest to draw up for happy couples. Especially in the case of destination weddings, you need to be sure the colors fit the location. To avoid standing out like a sore thumb in Tahiti with a black and gray color scheme, you can select your wedding colors for your destination affair by following these steps.

 

Find out what flowers are available at your destination:

Flowers often dictate a wedding’s color scheme. If you are avoiding flying in flowers from far-flung places, you will want to meet with a local florist to determine what blooms will work for your time of year. Flower colors could vary depending on where you are getting married. Couples should also pay attention to what flowers can be seen around your destination, which might lend color palette ideas in the process.

 

Survey your surroundings:

Certain colors look out of place in some destinations. For example, a red color palette for a mountain wedding can interrupt the natural surroundings of blue and purple mountains and glowing green meadows. Before you select your wedding colors, do your research on the colors of your destination’s surroundings. The landscape of your wedding will often act as a guide to determine if your colors will clash or flow with the setting.

 

Pay attention to the season and time:

No matter where you are looking to get married, your wedding colors might clash if you neglect the season and the time of day of your event. Winter weddings call for color schemes that aren’t overly bright, while a summer wedding tends to look strange in darker hues. Lighting also plays a factor in certain locales at various points in the day. Couples should contemplate what the lighting would be like at their destination during their wedding ceremony and reception.
