Q&A: Wedding Style: Choosing Wedding Colors?


My wedding date is about a year away. Is it too early to start planning? Also, my husband-to-be and I can't agree on a color -- are there any general guidelines that will help us pick?


It seems like most couples take a year to plan their wedding, so you two are right on target! As for wedding colors, you don't have to choose a color right away. If you don't have a definite color scheme in mind, just start making plans and see whether you're drawn to different shades of blooms and bridesmaid dresses. The style and decor of your ceremony and reception sites may also guide your color decisions. There's no hard-and-fast rule governing how to choose wedding colors, so do some exploring to find one that suits you both!
