Spring weddings are full of flowers like roses, tulips, daisies and peonies. Are you fond of one in particular? A great way to get inspiration for your spring wedding colors is from your favorite flowers or other spring scenery. Find a photograph of some spring scene that you really enjoy – the key is to pay close attention to detail of it. Take note of colors that aren’t obvious in a photo or setting and use them as accents for the bolder shades that stand out.
Take, for example, a sunflower. The main color that pops up in your mind is yellow, right? Well you can pair it with a soft color like ivory to make it pop, and accent it with a dark brown to pull the look together. Don’t go overboard with the brown, though! Use it as an accent colors in things like shoe colors for you and your bridesmaids or the ribbons used to tie the bouquets. Also great as an accent color for your table scapes, centerpieces and favors.
