Choosing colors…harder than choosing a mate!!

I know that choosing a color palette can be a huge task for some brides.  Some brides already have a favorite color in mind, and just don’t know what else to pair it with.  Other brides have a feel in mind for their wedding (fresh, preppy, summery, etc) but no actual color preferences.  Where do you start?! 

Here are two of my favorite tools to help you jog your brain, when it comes to colors:

COLOURlovers is great if you just want to be inundated with possibilites, you can browse through thousands of palettes that users are uploading daily…..maybe something will strike your fancy!!  Some of my new favorite color palettes that I found today:

This gorgeous light pink, mauve, purple, and raspberry combo screams girly:


Loving this aqua, teal, navy and green combo!!


Strawberry, red, charcoal and black making quite the splash together!


I haven’t seen this teal and purple combo done yet, but I love it!


And for the bride who fears too much color, this neutral palette is anything but boring!


Another handy tool, if you’ve got an inspiration picture or pattern is the Color Palette Generator by Big Huge Labs.  It allows you to upload any jpeg, and then immediately generates the color palette that is represented by that picture!

I uploaded a picture of a gorgeous sunset I found on Flickr, and the tool generated the palette found right below it:
