Tip#3: Choose more than one color
Maybe you love color and it’s hard for you to choose just one - consider choosing multiple colors! It’s very trendy and beautiful to select a few similar shades of different colors to create a wedding color palette. Much like the way home designers approach designing a room, you can choose a handful of colors that compliment each other and together create a very cohesive, yet diverse and modern wedding color palette.
