The Perfect Palette: {Color Your Wedding Beautiful}: Palettes I Love!

When it comes to helping you with your color conundrums, I'm your girl. Truth be told, reading my new palette requests in the morning is actually one of the greatest, most favorite parts of my day. Why, you ask? Well, that's because I get to hear from you! I hope you know and realize that there's nothing that puts a bigger smile on my face than receiving an email from a reader about how thankful they are for my help.

The simple truth is that helping you is what I L-O-V-E to do. It's what makes me tick. Want to know what else makes me tick? Yep, you guessed it, colors! Bright colors, soft colors, sweet colors, vintage colors, creative colors, and the list goes on... Today I'm sharing just a few of my favorite types of colors! What are your favorite colors?

Do you find yourself gravitating toward sweet colors like peaches and pinks?

Or maybe you'd rather surround yourself with a vintage color palette? What's a vintage palette you ask? Well, to me a vintage palette has very little real color and relies heavily on neutrals to do the story telling.

Or maybe you love creative colors. You know, strong color palettes that pop and make a bold + graphic statement. I love creative palettes because you often can easily incorporate fun details, like these old fashioned coca cola bottles for instance.

A timeless palette is one that won't ever go out of style. It's not trendy nor overpowering. It's not bold or in your face. It's simple, sweet and will never go out of style. For that reason, I love timeless color palettes.

What's better than timeless color? Simple color! You know, monochromatic palettes that come together effortlessly. Those are the type of palettes where it's hard to make a mistake. They're easy peasy and that's what makes them a winner in my book.

I'm also a huge fan of homespun elegance. You know, colors that you can easily use to bring your handcrafted and DIY projects to life! I love this jar centerpiece idea!

Another type of color I can never get enough of are unique colors. You know, the colors you don't often see every day? Like mint for instance. Mint is a color that I just added to the color palette here on The Perfect Palette and I can't wait to play around with it some more. Unique colors make me happy.

And lastly, I love charming colors. You know...colors that just have a way of making you feel good. Colors that allow you to easily incorporate charming details. Colors that exude a specialness that not all colors have. There's a world full of color out there and I, myself am learning and discovering new colors and new color palettes every day. And you want to know what? I feel so lucky to be able to share my color ideas with you on a daily basis! So tell me, what kind of colors make your heart skip a beat? Oh, and what colors would you like to see featured here that I don't have featured here already? We're only 3 away from having 50 colors in the color palette!

The wedding I'm styling on Saturday has the exact same color scheme that first board as... and I LOVE IT!

Laura *You Stir Me* July 28, 2011

I'm having a hard time choosing between homespun elegance and charming moments - I might have to combine the two:) Gorgeous combos - I love soft romantic colors one day and then can't get enough of bold or jewel toned colors the next:)

Couture Carrie July 28, 2011

OMG! I LOVE YOUR BLOG! i'm fascinated by color, imagery and the mixture of color to create a feeling. Your blog is insanely inspiration. I'm already married but I'm a photographer and designer of accessories including bridal hair pieces so i'm constantly around weddings and events. Plus I just love getting sucked into bridal magazines because of the creative imagery.

I also founded a company called Expressive Media Network in the Washington DC area. Its a network of events based businesses all together in one place so that the vendors can refer and group together and a client can get everything they need for their next event in one spot. I will definitely refer your blog to every bride and event planner I know.

Glad to be your newest follower!

P.S : If you want to check out the bridal pieces among the other accessories I design and create ( everything is handmade ) I would love for you to check it out and if you see something you like you can use the coupon code "thebeginning" to take 10% off.

Girl, I have no idea how you have time to come up with all this loveliness, but I'm sure glad that you do! That blush color palette is making me weak in the knees, I love it! Keep the inspiration coming!

Grace Community Garden July 28, 2011

I love the way you crafted this post- so creative and inspiring! Love the sass of the creative colors but forever drawn to the vintage scheme. Well done!!

Hannah {Culture Connoisseur} July 28, 2011

Ooo the Pepsi one is so cool. I don't know if I could be that daring, but it looks like they pulled it off!

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma July 28, 2011

I love the vintage themed wedding SO pretty and classic!

Laura July 28, 2011

I love all the blush and the vintage look! I'm really struggling with color right now. I think once I start really creating my accents it will all come together but it's certainly scary when you first get started. I'm still in love with the amethyst and copper you posted from Magnolia Rouge.

Keep it up!

Unknown July 28, 2011

I have been lusting over the softer palettes lately - blush, nude, peach - they are so effortless! Always love your inspiration boards!

birdie to be July 28, 2011

Ugh! SO hard to choose. I love the creative palette.. although its not necessarily me. I think I'd have to go with the vintage or sweet looks.

Holly July 28, 2011

Your blog is so great! I love all the colors you put together :)

Holly July 28, 2011

Oh, and I think I'd have to go with Timeless colors :)

sherri lynn July 28, 2011

I love all of these! I like different colors for different things (obviously). I love the black, red, grey for our bedroom, which is what we have in the winter. And I love the Homespun colors for an office for me!

Amy-Jo Tatum/Bride Chic July 28, 2011

First blush I gravitate toward peaches and pinks. After that the light filled mauves mixed with blue. I'm moody though: if someone is talents at mixing colors--any colors, those are the ones I adore . . .

natasha {schue love} July 28, 2011

I have SUCH an obsession with mint right now! Would have loved to have used that color in my wedding!! Le sigh...

Tiff For Tat July 28, 2011

So pretty I always gravitate towards the timeless colors. But I always love all your color pallettes!
