Choosing your wedding colors doesn't have to be super difficult. You just need to ask yourself a few questions about the sort of mood you'd like to create. Vibrant colors tend to evoke a sense of drama whereas softer colors create more of a romantic feel. And when it comes to the season? While it's not a rule that's totally set in stone, more often than not darker hues tend to work best in the Fall and Winter whereas the softer shades work best for Spring and Summer. 

Sure, it can seem a bit overwhelming at first. But once you start narrowing your options, you'll find that things become a little more simple. But that's not to say that you should take the decision lightly. Here are a few tips that will make choosing your wedding colors a little easier!
