How to Color Coordinate Your Wedding for a Stellar Video

You’ve found your forever person, you just got engaged, and you’re starting to plan the best day of your life. You’ve probably thought more about life after the wedding than you have about the actual ceremony, and aesthetic details might seem a little daunting. Picking the right colors determines the tone for the whole day, and you want to make sure your video documents the celebration perfectly. Fortunately, a little prep goes a long way with these four tips.

Vision Board

Rip out or take pictures of images in magazines that you’re drawn to, regardless of whether they have anything to do with weddings or not. Collect pictures online and on your phone for a week, and ask your significant other to do the same. At the end of the week, compare the pictures and see what they have in common. You’ll be able to notice colors that stand out to both of you. Maybe you’ve both selected a number of beach scenes with prominent blues and greens. Once you’ve determined which colors you like, you’re ready to pair them.

Paint Chips

Take a trip to your local hardware store’s paint section and take advantage of perusing the free paint chips. Find the colors you noticed in the activity above, and take turns holding them next to each other to determine which two or three are your favorites together. Once you’ve settled on your combo for the big day, you can start on decorating.


Talk with your florist about the colors you’ve selected so that he or she can make some beautiful arrangements including them. Flowers make photos pop on the big day. Decisions like which types of bouquets to select, centerpiece shapes, and room décor will set the tone for your event.


You may even consider hiring someone to make a video of your wedding day. This way, you can stay completely involved in your guests and your partner. A professional will also know exactly how to capture the day so that you can relive your wedding for years to come.

Taking the time to understand which colors you and your partner are drawn to and then arranging them appropriately pays off for your big wedding day. Professionals like florists, planners, and videographers will help to concretely organize ideas that may be floating around in your brain about preferences for your big day.
