Choosing a Color Scheme
Are you still unsure what type of color you would like to use? Here are a few tips that may make your selection easier. First let's focus on the style of invitation and the theme of your shower.
It is important to choose a design that encompasses the look that you are after.
To begin look at the time of year you will be hosting the party for the bride. Now break it further down into one of the four seasons. This is always a helpful step because each season has its own possibilities.
If this doesn't work there are a couple of options at your disposal. They are:
- Use the guest of honor's favorite color. If you don't know either ask her/them directly or ask somebody else who might know. The mother of the bride is a good place to start.
- Look at the theme you are planning. Often the theme dictates the various colors you have to choose from.
Once you have finalized your choice in color, adding it to your shower theme is a snap. Here are a couple of tips that will make your choices pop without overwhelming the design.
- Ensure that the color isn't dominated by another competing color. That means that the color want to show off should cover roughly 60% of the invite. There are of course exceptions to this rule. If the card is predominately black and white you need to make sure that the color you choose acts as the accent color.
- Don't overdo it. It can be fun spreading a little color around but don't get excessive. For example if you pick both an invite and envelope in the same color it will weaken the appeal of the color substantially. One method is to use a complimentary color, or a darker shade of the primary color for the surrounding stationary.
Keep these tips in mind when you're choosing your decorations. The same rules apply.
