Advice On Where to Start

July 21, 2009
If you are struggling for a place to start when it comes to planning your wedding...I think it's safe to say that the two most important things to decide upon are a date & a venue.
Shortly after that I'm a big believer that it's really important to go ahead and decide on a color palette. Without it, you may waste a lot of valuable time. Because lets face it...You can easily become overwhelmed by all of the different ideas there are out there.
So where do you start?
My advice on where to start is simple. Start with the color of your bridesmaids dresses. Once you have made this decision you can then request to have a swatch of the color & you can then take it around to stores to try to match up other items!
Plus, once you have your bridesmaids order the dresses...there is really no turning back. Which is actually a good thing! Dont let yourself waste months going back and forth with your colors!
These are a few of my favorite bridesmaids looks. In my opinion all of these colors are simply beautiful. The hardest part just might be having to committ to one set of colors. But I promise you that once you do committ to your colors... you will feel really good about it. So be decisive! And dare to choose colors that are unique!


Gray, blue, pink, orange, green, yellow, purple & aqua.

The hardest thing I've done so far is my color palette. I've changed it so many times and just decided on one in the past couple of days.

I totally agree! I just picked my colors last weekend while picking out my dress. one of my briedsmaids held up dress sytle she liked and I fell in love with the color. It is truffle. I'm thinking of going with various shades of pink as an accent. Would you please maybe do palette with those colors, or direct me where I can find them on here.

I think color selection can really make or break the details of a wedding. I am very detail-oriented and have a theme I want to employ throughout the reception, but am having a hard time narrowing down and selecting a color palette. I want a rustic Mexican/Spanish themed wedding, and our outdoor reception will take place at a ranch/vineyard. The colors I've sort of been entertaining are fuchsia (for sure), maybe some orange in the flowers, and cobalt blue (like the blue in Mexican tiles, glassware, etc.)... any thoughts, suggestions, opinions?

The date and the venue were the first two things we chose! I love the grey dresses and the teal...both very beautiful.

I agree! A wedding revolves around the colors that you choose. I chose a midnight blue and crystal/light blue for my main colors with accents of silver and white.
