When you’re choosing a look for your wedding, one of the top questions you’ll probably hear from various wedding professionals is, “What are your colors?” It’s important to know your palette for planning purposes because colors are the driving force for several of the decisions you’ll make. Sometimes you’ll know exactly what tones you’re seeking, or in other cases, you may only have a ballpark idea. This is where swatches and palettes come in handy.
Swatches are fabric samples of color selections available. Swatches more often than not will come from your wedding attire vendors, so your bridesmaid dress and suit companies. It’s a good idea to not only get your top choice as a swatch, but other hues in your palette, as well, so you can really visualize how the colors will look together. Many companies will charge for swatches, however, so be careful when thinking about how many you want to order.
This is not only a great way to see the color of your clothing, etc., but it also gives you a chance to see and feel the material of the outfits you’re ordering before signing on the dotted line.
There a couple of ways to go about building the palette for your wedding. First thing is to decide the tone of your palette. This will help you narrow down your color options. For example, do you know if you want a neutral, bold, bright or subtle palette? From there you can start building your options.
You will usually have one or two main colors in your palette, and a couple of other background colors. Background colors are often neutral tones like ivory, blush or champagne, as long as those aren’t either of your primary colors.
Here are some examples of building a palette based on the factors above:
