Creating a Wedding Color Board

Creating a color board for your wedding is a fabulous idea. It gives a visual overview of all the elements in your wedding and helps to unify the theme, color scheme and feeling. Working on your color board will help you to discard things that aren’t working. And it is a lot of fun.

The most beautiful weddings are those in which there is an over all plan and theme. This does not necessarily mean more money. If you decide to marry in the back yard and have a barbeque then most likely your selections for your bridal bouquet, table setting and floral decorations will be different from a wedding and reception conducted in a church.

By grouping dresses, accessories, table linens, flowers onto one page your color board will highlight things that you may not think about until you see them all together.

Using the internet as your resource you can find just about anything for your color board, from David's Bridal to florist's websites and while you are searching you will pick up dozens of great ideas. For instance fabrics for your tables. The wedding reception is the place to cut loose a little bit and have it fun and festive including the table top. Add a little color, or some bling. Colorful table squares can be laid over a plain white cloth to add color and texture. Call me corny but I love bling for some themes and have been caught sprinkling diamond dust on the tables to make them glittery when the candles are lit. Of course if your budget allows for crystals dripping from an overhead arrangement, then fabulous.

HOUSEFABRIC.COM is a great website where you can browse hundreds of designer fabrics, order small samples and sometimes find great fabrics on sale. The fabrics are grouped by color, pattern or designer. They are usually so wide you just need to cut them in a square and you will have the right size for a table square.(No piecing together) I'm so lazy I use fabric glue for the two raw edges.

As a florist when I put together a flower presentation I always create a sort of color board of flowers for myself. Not only color but mood and feel of the flower is important. Orchids have an entirely different feel than sweet peas. There are focal flowers, line flowers, filler flowers all of which need to represent the colors and theme of the wedding. The choices are limitless. It’s the same with shoes, handbags, dresses and table linens. So putting them all together on one page is a great tool for creating a really polished look.
