Color Ideas for Weddings, Parties and More...

When it comes to finding the perfect color palette for your wedding, party or event...are you often overwhelmed by all the pretty color combinations out there? I'll admit it, I've definitely been there before. Because let's be honest.... there really are so many beautiful color palettes to choose from! But not to fret, my color loving friends. I think what works for me the best is to focus on finding one image that speaks to me. For instance, a photo of a jaw dropping bouquet... or an image of a tablescape that is just oozing with character and charm...

You see, so many ideas can come from a single image. An entire wedding or event can be inspired from a single idea. That's what I love about finding the perfect inspiration! Because the truth is that when it comes to creating inspiration - it all starts with one idea. One idea that incorporates a color palette that is full of potential. So tell me...Can you easily imagine a wedding styled to coordinate with any of the images above? What ideas come to mind?

I'm loving that first image - it's definitely a great inspiration photo for Spring. I can imagine how pretty that palette would be too.
