Get Inspired by Your Setting
First things first: location. Have a color palette in mind as you start your venue search. Think about what colors you'd like to use, and whether you'd want to prioritize finding the perfect venue or having your perfect color palette.
Keep Your Priorities In Mind
While the venue is usually the biggest choice you have to make in your wedding planning, sometimes there are other details to consider that might come before choosing your colors too.
Look to What You Love
The colors that inspire your home décor are ones you know you can live with for a long time (and it's an extra perk that leftover items like Moroccan lanterns will get used after your wedding day). Open your closet: What color clothes and accessories are you drawn to? Use that as a starting point for choosing your wedding hues.
Don't Overthink It
It's easy to get caught up in the idea that you have to have a strict wedding color palette. If you're early in the planning process, you'll probably get asked, “What are your colors?" a lot by friends and family, and that can put pressure on you to pick the “right" hues. But color doesn't have to play the major role that it's sometimes made out to be.
