Notes on Design: 3 Tips for Selecting a Color Palette
When it comes to designing an event, picking the perfect color palette could feel daunting. There are literally infinite possible combinations, and since color is subjective, there really is no right answer.
Below are 3 tips which can serve as a good jumping off point as you delve into discovering the perfect color palette.
1. Borrow from a work of art
Drawing colors from a favorite work of art can ground your decision making in something that reflects your personal taste.
2. Draw inspiration from a favorite place
Often the best color combination can be found in nature. Whether you are having a destination event or have big travel plans after your big day, you can draw color inspiration from that special place.
3. Keep it simple
When choosing a palette we recommend sticking to 3 to 5 colors. Select 2 core colors which will be the foundation of your palette, and then choose 1-3 accent colors to round it out. Having a limited set of colors will help you create a cohesive yet dynamic feel across all your event materials.
