If you start with a base color that you like and work with complementary colors, then you should be relatively safe in creating a harmonious and visually pleasing marriage ceremony.
With theme weddings a lot of the colors will be determined by the theme and to some people this can actually make it a lot easier with choices.
It is often a good idea to have a discussion with your photographer before finalizing your colors as these can have a dramatic effect on the outcome of your wedding photos.
A good photographer will be able to look at the venue, your own skin colors and that of your partner, your attire and flowers and give you a good idea of whether there will be anything that will have a detrimental or adverse effect on the photographs.
It is times like these that the advice of professionals is most welcome and can have a huge impact on the outcome you are desiring.
Hiring a wedding planner can help ensure that the colors are going to set the right tone for your event. They have a lot of experience in this area and can help steer you in the right direction.
Don't fret if you can't afford the advice of a wedding coordinator, however, because you can always check out wedding planning websites and Pinterest for good ideas and the latest color trends and color schemes.
