Choosing Wedding Colors

Choosing wedding colors can seem like a huge, daunting task. I’m telling you, though, it doesn’t have to be. You have to remind yourself that weddings are about you and your significant other and what you like and want. Sure, you may want to take into consideration the time of the year when you are getting married when it comes to picking your colors, but ultimately, it is up to you.

I would suggest going with something timeless. Something you can look back on in 20 years and still like and appreciate. Of course fashions will come and go with wedding dresses, but the colors you pick can help create that classic, fun, spunky, or timeless look that you are going for. Whatever you do decide, make sure that you absolutely love your wedding colors!

This is your big day and you can’t let other’s opinions get in the way. Now I’m not saying to throw everyone’s advice out the window, but take your time, see some options, and choose what is ultimately right for you!

Weddings – The Personal Touch

Up until the late 1960s, weddings were pretty much traditional events. With the social revolution of the 60s, people became more interested in self-expression. That is a trend that has taken root in today’s world of romance.

Weddings are a great way for a couple to express where they are in life. With couples waiting much longer to marry, the cost of weddings is often falling more on the couple and lass on the parents. Couples are planning weddings that are more personal and less about impressing the folks.

The venues are often creative, sometimes outrageous. The nuptials have much more of a party feel and less of a ceremonial event. Some weddings are reflective of the couples lifestyle and hobbies like getting married while skydiving, while others are simple ceremonies with a big party afterwards. Some couple choose to avoid the hassles and simply elope and some still cling to tradition and the fairytale event.

A themed wedding such as a Luau are also becoming more and more popular. Much more fun and celebratory than a church and forced fed catered reception an informal meal and party at the beach with full bar be que are often much more memorable as well, and the bride is often more relaxed and able to be with her guests and family in a more comfortable setting.

This much is evident: Cookie cutter weddings are becoming a thing of the past.
