choosing your colours

You know you want to use colours that are unique, beautiful and say something about you & your fiance, right?

How on earth do you narrow all those choices down to something that will actually work for you?

Luckily, the internet is filled with all sorts of fantastic colour guides that can help you out.

Pantone is the grand-daddy of the colour forecasting companies, and their seasonal forecasts are definitely worth checking out for inspiration. Their Fall 2008 fashion forecast was just released and has lots of yummy colours that would be perfect for a wedding!

Color Blender is on online tool for selecting colour palettes that look flattering together - you can play for hours with this one!

The Knot has photo galleries of real weddings that you can search or browse through by colour. They've got pink, red, orange, blue, brown & more.

My DH & myself chose a wedding palette of blue, green & brown - the colours of our eyes :-) My eyes are blue & his are hazel (a mix of green & brown) The colours coordinated beautifully with each other and gave us the unique look we were looking for.
