Adding Color to Your Event
So, you simply adore orange, you’re mother-in-law wants green, and you're fiancé is obsessed with pewter gray. Which one should you choose? Here's an idea... why not use all three? And while you’re at it, add a neutral like ivory. This may seem like a crazy idea, but let's apply these four rules below, and let’s see what happens.
Find a common tone for each color.For instance, neutral tones of orange and green could be salmon and teal.Consult the color wheel for various shades and their under-tones of your desired colors
Choose one or two colors as your main colors and have fun with them. Dresses, table linens, floral arrangements, and room décor are great options to play with.
Choose one color as you’re main accent color.Add it in subtle places like napkin rings, or a ribbon. This makes the difference between elegance and shabby (sans the chic).
Create a theme that is found throughout your whole event. This will unify the motive for all the colors in your event, and justify the method for your madness.
The result – a sophisticated mix of color that makes everyone happy. And
most importantly, there’s absolutely no way your marriage begins with your mother-in-law calling the shots!
