Our Favorite Color Palettes | How to Incorporate your Wedding Colors | NM Wedding Photographers

One of the most fun parts of planning your wedding is: choosing your wedding colors. There are so many options, combinations, and shades! But once you've decided what you want your colors to be, it can be tricky knowing HOW to show off those colors.

So we're going to share some of our favorite color combos from our past weddings and shoots to help you figure out exactly how to incorporate your scheme into your big day!

Accessories and Invitations

In case you've never noticed, Maura Jane Photography is obsessed with blue. So naturally, we love when our couples choose to have blue wedding palettes. If you're looking to incorporate your color in a more subtle way, our first suggestion will always be stationary. Your invitations set the stage for your wedding, and often times, are the first detail your guests will see.

Now you can accessorize in your chosen color in smaller ways that will still be noticed! The perfect way to do this is through your jewelry, (either earrings, necklace, or even another ring) or shoes.

Pampas Grass and Reception Details

In the rise of the Boho Goddess trend, burnt orange is here and ready to play. If you think it's a hard color to pair, think again! While it normally plays into a more moody color palette, you can still brighten it up and keep it feminine. Here we paired it with pinks, corals, and mustards, along with a navy suit to give it a whimsical air and stylish finish that pops!

Another favorite way to incorporate color? Attire! Just because you will most likely be in some form of white, that doesn't mean that you can't use everyone else's attire to accomplish your color dreams!

The most obvious way to do this is with your bridesmaids. Many boutiques have all the options available for you to see in person. Online retailers have options for you to buy a swatch and have it delivered so you can feel confident about the shade before sending your girls to buy their non-refundable dresses.

And don't forget about the groomsmen! They will be in ties or bowties, and usually have pocket squares, that you can use to tie in your colors too!

Reception Decor

Maybe you're looking for more than just dresses to show off your theme. An excellent way to tie in your colors is with your reception decor, such as:

- Seating Chart

- Guest Book

- Center Pieces
