If you’re newly engaged and just embarking on the wedding planning journey, picking a color is a great place to start. Going with a particular hue doesn’t mean your big day has to be overwhelmingly filled with color, but rather it can give you a common thread for your decor and details to help keep things cohesive. Take a look at these perfect palettes, photographed at The Creative Chateau, to get some ideas for your ideal shade! From black and white to plum or a peaceful blue, these hues are so easy on the eyes. Cheers!
Black and Bold
Black doesn’t have to be bleak, as you can easily see from these punchy photos! Tie in other bold, saturated shades – pastels with a bit more punch – and black can be the element that ties them all together.

Out of the Blue
And just like that, out of the blue, you’ll notice this subtle, understated color palette with its gorgeous blue hues reigning supreme. A calm light blue allows for other shades, like a darker cerulean, ivory and a soft pink, to coordinate beautifully.
There’s no denying it: this jewel-toned shade is just plum pretty! Not quite purple but not quite pink, this hue works in every season and brings a unique, unexpected vibe to the party.

Don’t be fooled by the mention of winter: this crisp, clean shade can be beautiful any time of year! Don’t be afraid to add accents in other muted colors. White still works well as long as it can take center stage!
