Step 6: Choose Your Wedding Colors
Weddings are always aesthetically pleasing. You want to pick a cohesive color palette that compliments your theme, and there are many ways to do that:
You should consider the wedding venue when picking your color scheme.
Forget about this season’s trends and pick what you prefer. If you lean toward modern monochromatic colors, a neutral palette would fit best, or if you lean toward a strange color palette, add a few bold splashes.
When in doubt, opt for colors that match a specific season’s mood, like white, silver, and ice blue for winter, or gold, red, golden, and brown for fall.
Avoid getting carried away. You don’t want to pick too many colors that overwhelm you; narrow your choices to three or four colors.
Get swatches of your prospective colors so you can choose and describe the hues accurately.
Picking wedding colors is crucial because they influence many wedding decisions like the cake, decor, the color of bridesmaids’ dresses, and flowers, so make sure to take your time and carefully choose your colors.
Food is an influential element in your wedding, and you’ll need to offer a variety of choices like vegan and/or vegetarian options for your guests.
When working with a caterer, make sure that:
They serve quality food. Ask about the ingredients and do multiple tastings until you’re satisfied.
Tell them whether you want plated meals or a buffet serving.
Ask them if their catering services include wedding cake or if additional charges are made for ordering the cake. If they don’t offer bakery services, you’ll have to book a cake caterer.
Step 8: Book Your Photographer
A great place to start finding your photographer is from venue recommendations or previous weddings you’ve attended and liked the photographer’s work. Make sure that the photographer’s approach to your wedding suits your style.
Guide them on what you prefer: it can be intensive editing, the original capture as it is, capturing dynamic moments, or giving clear instructions before every photo.
