How to add some color magic to your wedding

I have a nice treat for you this lovely Friday – a new guest blogger! So you know how I’m über obsessed with wedding blogs because of all the swoon-evoking details? Well, I discovered a new wedding blog to go gaga over called Juliet marries Romeo. The mastermind behind this pretty blog is Camelia, a photographer and fellow lover of beautiful things. She definitely has impeccable taste as her post below can attest. So for all of you brides-to-be, Camelia has put together some gorgeous inspiration for you. Even if you’re not a bride-to-be, but still can’t stop looking at wedding blogs because you have an affinity for pretty things (like myself and Camelia), you may enjoy this too :)! Happy Friday, Beauty Nerds!

There’s nothing like the color white that absolutely says bride but color combinations can turn a plain wedding celebration into a coordinated affair with a pleasing palette of hues and shades.

Most couples choose two or three colors for their wedding palette. The main color is often used for large, very visible items such as table linens, bridal party dresses, large blooms in the wedding bouquet and other wedding flowers, tuxedo vests, wedding invitations, and other decorations.

The accent colors are used to add a little bit of contrast and are usually found in smaller details such as edging or piping on the bridal party attire, ribbons tying the bouquets, small accent flowers, and more.

How you use your wedding color ideas depends on your personal preference, but remember these tips:
♥ Too much of one color can be overwhelming
♥ Be flexible and creative by using multiple hues of the same color for a varied yet coordinated palette
♥ Choose accent colors either from the same color family or dramatic contrasts
♥ Neutral tones such as white, silver, or black are good accents for any palette

For now dear lovelies enjoy this Aqua & Teal color inspiration board.

    “Too much of one color can be overwhelming.” = so true. So many times I’ve seen this same Tiffany Blue inspiration used in all the wrong ways in weddings. It is always the same puke-worthy result of the same shade of blue/teal splattered on everything, bridesmaids’ dresses, groom’s tie, tablecloth, bouquet ribbon, etc.

    Sorry for rambling, but my original point is that the different shades used in your inspiration board are so beautiful. I think my favourite part of it all is the risky crisp white ribbon bouquets hung from the ceiling matched with the creamy off-white flowers on the table. The whole combination was so refreshing and comfortable to look at.

      Haha, I love ramblings so no worries!! I’m so glad you liked Camelia’s inspiration board! I agree, this palette is gorgeous, especially when you vary the shades. It helps to give the palette dimension…
