Will pink be part of your wedding color scheme?Picking out your wedding colors can be tricky. Not only are there so many to choose from, but you will want to make sure your choices complement each other. When choosing your colors, your best bet is to stick to three.
The first color to consider is your dominant color. This will be the color that is most seen throughout your wedding, such as on your invitations, attendants' attire, flowers and decorations.
Your second color is the subordinate color; it should complement the dominant color. This color will be seen in most aspects of your wedding, such as in details on the invitations, table settings and some decorations.
The third color is the accent color. This color should blend well with both the dominant and subordinate colors. The accent colors will only be seen in small details of your wedding, such as flowers or accessories.Pink Wedding Bouquet
