As such, the authors have come up with some suggestions to help brides deal with the color dilemma. One of the things they recommend is to start is with paint companies. Every year most paint manufacturers will come out with their annual color trends brochure in which they will recommend a series of three or four trendy new colors that compliment each other. The authors recommend brides choose the color in the combination that they like the most and make it the dominant color – which would then be used for bridesmaids’ dress, groom men’s ties, invitations, etc. They then recommend choosing one or two of the other colors as accents for bouquet flowers, centerpieces, table napkins and so forth.
Oliver and Sullivan believe that it is best to use one main color and no more than one to two accent colors, and white, cream or ivory should be somewhere in the mix. But the authors feel that you don’t have to have more than one color if that is not to your liking. Simply choose a color you like and use two or three different shades of it. The great thing is pretty much everything– from flowers to gowns – can be dyed.
The rest of the authors’ suggestions for picking a color scheme, as well as more of their wedding ideas can be found on their website at www.dcpublishing.com. Their book, Weddings with Style, is available now through Amazon.com.

Photo Quote: It is light that reveals, light that obscures, light that communicates. It is light I "listen" to. The light late in the day has a distinct quality, as it fades toward the darkness of evening. After sunset there is a gentle leaving of the light, the air begins to still, and a quiet descends. I see magic in the quiet light of dusk. I feel quiet, yet intense energy in the natural elements of our habitat. A sense of magic prevails. A sense of mystery. It is a time for contemplation, for listening - a time for making photographs. - John Sexton
