Venue Color Schemes

Posted by Caitlin on Jan 17, 2013

Once you have finally booked your venue, it’s time to pick your color scheme! You may think the colors are completely up to you; however, you should take into account the setting of your venue, the time of year your wedding is taking place and how formal or informal your ceremony and reception will be.  Remember, not only do you want your color scheme to set the vibe for your wedding but also complement the venue. Here are our favorite color scheme combinations to inspire you:

Inspiration for your wedding decor can come from anywhere – and a favorite movie, especially a classic film like the1952  Gene Kelly/Debbie Reynolds favorite Singin’ in the Rain, is a great place to start. We love how the creative Savannah-based vendor team, lead by Morgan Gallo Events and Azelle Photography, took this idea to heart by creating a style shoot full of Old Hollywood glamour and a touch of whimsy. Of particular note are the bright color palette, old school-meets-modern lounge area, raindrop-inspired details at every turn (love that cake!), and the vintage umbrellas hanging above the dance floor. Who said that rain on your wedding day is a bad thing? Check out the stunning, inspiring photos below – plus a bonus video from this gorgeous shoot.

Of course, we know it’s hard for brides to find the perfect dress, and it’s not too hard for grooms to pick the perfect suit. One detail that should be hard for them to decide, though, is whether to wear a bow tie or neck tie. If your groom is preppy, he should pick a bow tie, but if your groom is traditional, he should pick a neck tie. Whatever your groom’s style may be, he’s bound to look handsome on your wedding day!

Which is your groom wearing?
