Subtlety is Key

I know all you 2012 brides are rolling up your sleeves and getting down to the nitty-gritty of wedding planning….details and color schemes. Remember when planning your day that subtlety is key. Don’t overwhelm your guests with too many patterns or a mish-mash of colors. You want your day to have a cohesive look that is timeless and elegant while still reflecting your personality. There are a few easy ways to achieve this.

1. Think outside the box with color schemes. Don’t choose the same old pink and navy or aqua and chocolate. Maybe choose shades of pink with touches of cobalt blue or a fun, funky aqua pattern with hints of chocolate for the smallest details. This will set your event apart from all the other weddings your guests are bound to attend this bustling wedding season. Just remember to THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX and be SUBTLE.

2. Once you have picked your perfect color scheme now you can add those extra special touches in the smallest of places that will make the entire event come together. For example, fabrics…they can be used on pillows, lamp shades, linens, back drop for the photo booth, or even incorporated into your cake. All of these cohesive design elements will make your event seem smooth and classic.

3. You can even incorporate your colors or pattern into the bridal party by thinking outside the box for bridesmaids dresses!

4. And lastly, you can incorporate your color scheme or theme through the catering or rentals. Adding bookshelves behind a normal table bar, having server attire, or even patterned china can add just enough detail to make your event seem truly elegant.
