One of the first decisions made and a most important attribute of any wedding is the color scheme a bride will use in her reception halls. Many Utah brides started at a very young age dreaming of their Utah weddings with certain favorite colors. The color the bride chooses will radiate the kind of woman she has become and the kind of ambiance she wants her guests to feel at the celebration honoring her and her husband.
Factors that should be considered in completing your color scheme are simple: 1) Obviously, a color that you love, 2) the season for the celebration, and 3) the wedding venue you’ve chosen.
#1 – The color you’ve been dreaming of is most important. However, be prepared to have it be the main bold color or possibly an accent combined with other complementary colors. For example, red is a beautiful autumn and winter color for weddings. Spring, not so much. However, red coupled with yellow and a hint of orange is a beautiful combination for a spring wedding. Your color can serve as the main event or as a beautiful accent.
#2 – The season does make a bit of difference on your color palette. Again, be prepared to have your favorite color coupled with others to create that ambiance for a complete event. Spring colors like baby blue and pale yellow can work in the winter by adding some accents of black or browns. The atmosphere you create inside will compliment the outside.
#3 – Sometimes the wedding venue you choose will have a bearing on the color tones you finally put together. You want your colors to make a statement. Remember, you are creating a feeling and a flow for all your guests to experience. If your venue is a garden type with plants all over, then kelly green might not make a statement but rather blend into the green already there. Maybe a waste of money. However, a soft green coupled with white would be stunning.
View the color wheel found at Budget Brides. It is complete with seasons, the meanings of the colors, and easy to see visual of complimentary colors (two colors that lie directly opposite each other on the color wheel), and tertiary colors (three colors of equal distance from each other on the wheel). These color schemes are pleasant to the viewer. There are other color schemes. For example, monochromatic colors – using different shades of a color for a more dramatic effect.

With your creative touch, your expressive personality, and the right reception venue in Utah, your wedding celebration will be most memorable for you and for your guests.
