Wedding Color Themes are a Personal Choice

Festival-of-Colors-India-11

Hey Y’all,

Today we’re going to take a closer look at how you can go about choosing the best colors for your wedding theme, and what the colors mean. Of course, the colors chosen for a wedding should represent the happy couple’s personality. But there’s also a number of meanings attached to colors chosen for a wedding, making it a good idea for you to look a little further into these meanings, especially if you’re someone who tends to be very sentimental.

Because there are a lot of colors to choose from, choosing the right colors for your wedding can get a little tricky. My best advice for you is to simply choose a color that you love, and then choose at least five different pallets of two different supporting and accent colors to go with that color. This way you can get a good feel for how all of the colors are going to look when together.

Ideally, it’s best if you choose a maximum of three colors in order to get the most dramatic effects. When the three colors are grouped together, the main color should comprise about three fourths of the arrangement, with the supporting color and the accent color blended in nicely into the background.

Look out for my posts on the meanings attached to the colors chosen for a wedding this week!

Three Advantages to Choosing a Beach Wedding

006_The Beach-XL

Happy Friday Y’all!

The weekend is at our fingertips, and a lot of us might be dreaming about the beach!

Who doesn’t love a beach wedding? There are many options when it comes finding the perfect location for a wedding, and the beach is definitely one of the most popular. Because the natural setting of a beach is one that’s very alluring – the sound of waves gently coming onto shore, the feel of a gentle sea breeze, seeing a beautiful sunrise or sunset – many soon to be married couples see a beach wedding as one that’s very romantic.

Besides being romantic, there are other advantages to choosing a beach wedding. The first involves saving a lot of time decorating, as Mother Nature has already created the perfect wedding background. Although, it’s easy to add in a few additional elements of decoration throughout the venue, like flowers and tiny white lights that can really add to the overall ambiance.

A second advantage? A beach wedding tends to cost less due to the more casual outside environment. Any money being saved by having a wedding on the beach can now be used for other expenses, like the honeymoon or even a down payment on a house.

A third advantage is the ability for a couple to get married in a truly unique setting. It’s no longer necessary to follow traditional wedding rules, which often includes getting married in a church or a local public venue. Soon to be married couples are now encouraged to choose their own special wedding venues, with a romantic beach wedding being a great choice.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Designing Your Wedding Day Tip#4…Lighting

Hi Y’all,

Because lighting can have one of the biggest influences on the overlook look and feel of a wedding, be sure that you pay a lot of attention to getting lights that you feel are going to best represent the day.

Although using natural light is a beautiful way to light a wedding, it’s not always available. A few fun options include (and remember, there are no rules here!), candles placed in (various sizes of) mason jars, string lights (they can virtually wrap around anything), and paper lanterns.

Tip #5 will be available next week, so don’t forget to check in.

Happy weekend!

Designing Your Wedding Day Tip #3…Food Fare

124_YourBASH Grand Del Mar-XL

Hi Y’all,

An important element to get right for your special day is the dining!

If you’re leaning towards a more formal wedding, then serving your guests at their table may be best. If you’re thinking about creating a more casual eating atmosphere, then family style is definitely worth looking further into.

Tip: If you’re low on table space, you can always add a few risers with organic flower arrangements underneath. This is a great way to display family style food platters and save room for everything else that needs to stay on the table.

Check in tomorrow for Tip#4
