Where to Add Pops of Color

If you’re not quite sure where to add pops of color, here’s a good guide. Place your main color in your flower bouquets or vases, the table runner, napkins, chair covers, candle holders, etc. Your accent color can be used in the settings (dishes or china), chair sashes, candles, etc. When it comes to the wedding attire, you can use your main color in the bridesmaids’ dresses, the vests or ties of the groomsmen, etc. Your accent color can be used as sashes for the bridesmaids’ dresses, bouquet ribbons, pocket handkerchiefs, boutonnières, etc.

The Best Way to Coordinate Your Wedding

Choose a few wedding photos that you really love and pick out the colors the bride chose – the main color and accent color(s). Next, think of your own wedding with your main colors and accent colors replacing the ones in the photo. Keeping track of colors and items is easy with a pinboard like Pinterest.
