For my wedding I took complete control. Color selection was a breeze, I made every decoration, designed and printed my own invitations and programs, and even made a 3D model of the event space to show how I wanted table layouts done. Unfortunately I didn't document all of these steps but my sister-in-law has asked me for my assistance with her wedding planning so I am doing similar planning for her.
The first step is choosing colors that you not only love but will coordinate with the event space. It is also important to consider the time of day, season and the feel you want to convey. Do you want it cool and crisp, warm and inviting, hip and modern, etc? After speaking with my sister-in-law I came up with 3 color scheme options for her to choose from. Providing a picture collage of each so that she could understand the whole concept and not just a color.
All three concepts provide a very different look. She selected Option 2: Ivory, Silver, Blue and Periwinkle. Which one do you like? What colors did/will you used for your wedding? Why? Would you change them?
