Once you have picked your color palette your wedding starts to plan itself.

All the details of a wedding -- the flowers, the bridesmaids dresses, shoes, ribbons, candles, ring pillows, neckties -- are ready for color. If you do it right they will work together and leave a lasting impression of the occasion.
Start by thinking about your favorite colors. Once you have something in mind we will help you take it from there. Colors come in all kinds of shades and hues, so keep an open mind when you start thinking about color.
First consider the space you will be using for both the ceremony and the reception. If both take place at Selby Gardens in March, make to sure ask which flowers will be in bloom and decide what colors will best complement them. If the wedding and reception take place in different places, choose colors that will compliment both. A Grand Ballroom with a royal blue and gold patterned carpet will require your colors to be toned down so they don’t clash with the décor.
Think about the mood you are trying to set. Leaf green paired with cantaloupe is perfect for a quiet ceremony at the beach, but certainly not regal enough for the Ca Da Zan. But pair the leaf green with copper and you will be celebrating in style.
Florida is a warm weather climate most of the year. However from November through February it does tend to cool off at bit. Colors used
traditionally for spring and summer weddings can go beautifully in Florida all year long. Think pastels, or vivid colors. For a traditional autumn wedding you may like to combine collections of brown, while for a winter wedding rich jewel tones work beautifully.
For daytime weddings soft iridescent colors are work best, while metallic neutrals, like bronze, gold, and platinum, work better at night.
