What do your color choices say about you?
Congratulations on your engagement!! What is the next question that usually comes around? “What is the date for the wedding?”
The next question is, “What are the colors?”
Color can be very important not just for a wedding but also home furnishings, events, advertising, etc. The use of color can bring out emotion, set a mood, create excitement or tone down the excitement. Look around and make note of colors in fast food restaurants, fine dining restaurants, spas, and kids play spaces. You will see and feel a trend.
Everyone has a favorite color. Sometimes couples will pick the color for their wedding based on this. Other times couples will pick colors based on a theme they are using. Using color is fun and should be used to its fullest potential. Have you considered what your color choices say about you?
Below is a list of colors and some qualities associated with them:
• Orange – Warm, invigorating, friendly
