When it comes to creating the perfect wedding, choosing the right colors and styles is not always easy. In fact, just because you have two favorable colors, doesn’t mean they will work together. Here are the top wedding style mistakes to avoid.
Mistake #1: Using too much color
With only a few exceptions, you should pick a maximum of four colors that will go well together and stick with it. Using the same color scheme throughout the decoration will create an effortless flow. Every detail will pair well and compliment your wedding vision. If you narrow your color palette to a select amount of colors, this will keep the elements from looking messy.
Another option is to choose varied shades of the same color. Adding depth to a specific shade will complement the décor without becoming too busy. You can also choose a monochromatic style with a bold shade of creamy white or purple. The idea is to tailor the décor with effortless style.
Mistake #2: Limiting to TWO bold colors
While using too much color will create a mess, how you chose your color variety will make all the difference. The trick is to use neutral colors like brown and cream and fog or shades of the same color to create a color scheme. Consider natural palette sapphire and sky blue with gray and white neutrals.
Mistake #3: Using Trendy Colors
When planning your wedding, it can be easy to be on trend and copy what you’ve seen in magazines. However, that doesn’t mean it is the best style for your wedding. Choose a style that you will enjoy for the long term. After all, they will be shown in photos for the years to come.
If you are into the colors of the year, consider using hints of the shade instead of making it the leading tone of the wedding.
Mistake #4: Using an Unbalanced Ratio
One of the major mistakes couples make is the color contract. Having two bold colors does not mean you should use each for half of the design. Decide which hue will become the main shade and work around your decisions from lights to drapery. If you want a bold coral shade, choose a muted shade to compliment the color like navy or pale blue.
