Selecting Your Wedding Colors The Easy Way.
Trendy and bright or luxurious and understated, find hues for your wedding color scheme that will take the cake. You will need Venue Mood boards Paint or fabric swatches and pantone color guide (optional).
Step 1. Take into consideration the colors of the venue when planning your color scheme. Hot pink and lime may contrast with the venue's navy walls and yellowish wall-to-wall carpeting.
Step 2. Take an inkling from your home decor. If your style favors ultra-modern, minimal, and monochromatic, seek out neutral colors. If you have one red accent wall, mix in a few bold dashes of color.
Step 3. Select colors with a specific seasonal mood, such as white, ice blue, and silver for a winter wonderland or red, brown, pumpkin, and gold to stir up a fall harvest mood.
Step 4. Collect pictures off of brochures with color blends you like and put them all together in a collage. You could have just two colors as a theme or as many as five. Narrow down to your six favorites. Consider the mood you want to evoke. Beachy pastels engage a more ceremonious look paired up with a cutting edge metallic.
Step 5. Head to a fabric store or paint store to get swatches in your prospective colors so you can decide upon and describe the hues correctly. Do you want sky blue, Caribbean blue, or lapis? Choose hues from a Pantone color quick guide, which is used by many cake decorators and invitation professionals.
Step 6. Steer clear of matching every single thing from the centerpieces and cake to the bouquets and invitations. Use varying shades of a hue or more than one hue, even more so in the bridesmaid dresses.
Step 7. Incorporate your colors in unexpected ways. Use a colored font on the invitation and a theme-hued ribbon on the favors or add a colorful sash to the wedding gown and work in colorful cufflinks. Did you know Blue was the color of purity in the Middle Ages? It's the source of today's wedding rhyme with "something blue.".
Some of the initial things you need to do just after getting engaged is picking your wedding chapel. Many wedding venues book out two years in advance, so it's essential you get one secured immediately. Here are 5 things to consider. the first is the time of year of your wedding date. It's possible that you've always dreamed of getting married on top of a mountain, but if your wedding date takes place in the heart of winter, you will want to take another look. Blizzards can certainly slow things down. Just like getting hitched in a park in the middle of the hot summer with no a/c. The second is your resources. How does the wedding venue fit within your overall wedding budget? It's important to stay within your budgetary restraints. The 3rd is the amount of invitees. Is the wedding venue large enough, or small enough to accommodate your group? The fourth is the kind of event that you are preparing for. Do you have a goal of a big formal grand affair? Or something intimate and small and mellow? And how does the location fit with your vision? The 5th is how much effort are you willing to hire or do someone to do? A lot of instances cheaper venues don't have the staff that is available to assist you with the setup or the teardown.

We have a strategy for you today on how to make your site venue visits with your client really worthwhile and successful and ultimately guiding them to very easily pick their perfect venue. So you start with no more than two to five venues in one day. Anything more than that creates for too long a day, too strenuous, and at the end of the day, nobody's going to think of what color the carpet was, whether it was blue-green, pink, patterned or plain, or anything. It's just too overwhelming. Keep it simple. 3-5 venues in one day. Yup. So at the conclusion of-of your site visit with your first venue, you're going to take your client in the lobby or the parking lot and you're going to get them to score that venue on a scale of 1-10. So they might share "Oh it's a nine and half. It was perfect, everything I envisioned".
Or they might say "Ahh ... it was like a 6, 6.5. I really didn't care for the turquoise carpet in the lobby. That's not the impression that I want my attendees to have our fabulous PINK wedding". You also want to have them give you some keywords of this venue. And get them to mention to you the things that they loved and really did not like. And you're going to make note of that so that at the end of the day you have this breakdown of details. And you're going to take notes of those things that they said. In a day they are just reading through and seeing all of this that you're providing to them. They are not stopping to organize this so they are going to really be happy when at the end of the day you send them a nice little wrap-up with "Here's the venues that you chose as your 8's, 9's, 10's, and that are still on the table, and the 6's and 7's that we can quite comfortably remove from the list and now we've narrowed it down to 2 or 3.
And here's what you mentioned about those wedding venues". And you can take those things that they, the keywords that they gave you after the site visit and you can match them to what they initially told you they are searching for in their venue and that's how you are likelying going to, reinforce, and pick that ultimately perfect venue for your client. It's a big hurdle. It's a big one to hit for your clients to get accomplished, so this tip will help to accomplish that in an easier way. And don't forget to take photos too because your client might just be in awe of the venue and you want to have those photos so that you can show them after.
