Thoughts on Color

I don’t remember the last time I did a post on color so forgive me if you’ve heard this one before.

When finalizing your color palette, be very specific as to how you tell your bridesmaids (if they’re shopping for their own dresses) and vendors which colors are in your palette. You need to be specific because every color can be a varying shade.

For example if you want a Tiffany blue colored wedding don’t tell your vendors and ‘maids that the color palette will be blue or even light blue. Be specific. And if you have to go to the paint store and give each vendor and ‘maid a paint chip of the exact blue you’re talking about, then do it.

Paint chips are free at Home Depot so grab as many as you need and pass them out. I'm sure you'd be mortified if on the day of your wedding each bridesmaid was wearing every shade of blue from navy to royal to sky and your cake's blue fondant clashed with the pale blue flower arrangements.

So do yourself a favor and be specific.
