Weddings are full of choices, and it can be tough making them. What type of cake will you have? Some of your guests may prefer chocolate while others would much rather eat vanilla! Where are you going to get your dress? Between all the cuts (trumpet, A-line, Sheath) it's hard to choose! All of these wedding decisions can make your head spin, in all honesty.
One of the hardest questions is about your color scheme. Your color scheme will dictate everything about your wedding, even influencing your groom and groomsmen. Everything from the invitations to the place settings will use the colors you choose, so the colors should be selected carefully.
We’ve made a list of the dos and don'ts of wedding colors. Of course, weddings are all about the couple. If you feel genuinely passionate about your color choices, just own it! The only thing that matters during a wedding is that the bride and groom are happy with their choices. Our advice comes from what looks good along with suggestions from wedding photographers. We admit that some color schemes look great in person, but they can photograph poorly, unfortunately.

Did you know...
- Jennifer Aniston's star-defining role on friends started a hair craze in the 90s that even lasted into the early 2000s. Called "The Rachel," Aniston's shoulder-length haircut had grown-out bangs and highlights styled to perfection. A hairdresser in Detroit noted that at the peak of its popularity, 40% of her business was devoted to recreating "The Rachel." Too bad that it was notoriously difficult to maintain on your own at home.
- Jackie Kennedy is famous for redecorating and renovating the interior of the White House. Actually, on just her first day, she ordered $50,000 in changes for new rooms for the children and upgrades to the kitchen. She later hosted a tour of the White House for CBS News which was viewed by 56 million people and won her an Emmy Award.
- Björk created a media sensation when she wore her iconic white swan dress to the 2001 Oscars. At the time, many derided it as hideous and a publicity stunt, but it has since gone down as one of the most memorable dresses of all time—even if it isn't exactly beloved. She says David Bowie was the inspiration behind the dress.
- Paris Hilton not only lives in a mansion, she also built a doghouse mansion for her Chihuahua. It's 300 square feet and includes air conditioning and heating. It comes decked out with designer furniture, a chandelier, a pink paint job, second-floor balcony, and enclosed "yard." It's not enough for you to live in luxury. Your dog must, as well.
- In February 2020, Jeff Bezos bought the most expensive property in California: a $165 million mansion. It was designed for Jack Warner (the former president of Warner Bros. entertainment company). It took a decade to construct (spanning the 1930s and 40s). It comes complete with 9 acres of Beverly Hills land, a main house, a guest house, a tennis court, a golf course, and terraces.
