Select a Stylish Shade for Your Wedding Invitations

Whether you already have the perfect color palette picked out for your wedding invitations or you are searching for inspiration in nature, art books and paper swatches for your dream wedding invitation color, selecting the shade of your wedding invitations is a huge step in solidifying the tone of your entire ceremony and reception. To help you with your wedding invitation color dilemma, we've gathered some easy tips for selecting the perfect hue for your wedding invitations to reflect your exquisite style on your big day.

One of the easiest ways to narrow down the color options for your wedding invitations is to consider the season. Rich rich jewel tones like burgundy, emerald green, navy and amethyst look best on wedding invitations for fall weddings. They also transition well on winter wedding invitations, but various shades of icy blue and slate gray also evoke a dreamy sense of winter romance. By contrast, bright colors like pinks, oranges, yellows and pastels complement the sunshiny fun of spring and summer wedding invitations.

Another great way to decide on the color of your wedding invitations is to pair you and your fianc´'s favorite colors together. While bright green and royal purple might not sound like the idea color combination for your wedding invitations, you can select a pretty lavender hue to pair with an elegant greenish gray color for an irresistible contrast. Get creative!

Lastly, if you can't seem to find inspiration in art, nature or clothing, turn to online stationery shops. Browse through their collection of wedding invitations to see what color combinations are making a splash this season, and to rule out any pairings that don't suit your style. This fun little exercise in wedding invitation shopping will help you find the color of your dreams (and will probably lead you to your ideal stationery suite, too!). Happy shopping!
