There are tons of places to pull inspiration from when determining your wedding color palette (Pinterest, The Knot, wedding magazines, etc.), but you can also create your own palette around colors that have meaning to you (that’s what I love to see!)
My husband is a Tennessee fan (Go Vols!) so orange was the only color he cared about – it also happened to NOT be one of my favorites. Blue and darker tones are my favorites, but we were having a Spring wedding. We ended up with shades of cream, pink and orange in the flowers with navy accents. And I ended up loving the way the orange looked mixed in. It was not done in a way that screamed college football AT ALL (probably myself and Cale were the only ones who knew why the orange was there), but it had a meaning behind it.
So, what colors stand out to you? Do they have a meaning behind them? (It's ok if they don't, you can also choose colors that you just love from your inspirations)
Typically, Spring and Summer weddings have lighter and brighter colors that complement the seasonal colors. You can mix in a favorite dark color to really add a pop - especially when you have an outstanding florist to back you up!
Fall brings out our love for all things moody and saturated - colors that mix with the changing leaves and crisp air.
A great way to ensure your color palette melds with your wedding season is to use locally grown, in season flowers. We grow a variety of cut flowers on our farm for weddings. Choosing in season flowers gives you a natural color palette that is unique to your wedding date and works perfectly with the surrounding colors of nature. On my wedding day, Queen Anne's Lace and native orange daylilies were blooming along the roads. Every year when these flowers come into bloom, I immediately think of my wedding day.
The main thing to remember is it's your wedding and rules are made to be broken (sometimes!). Choose a color palette that works for you and have fun with it!
