When planning a wedding, one of the first things to consider are the colors of your wedding's theme. After you've chosen the venue and the date, the smaller (but still very important) details—like floral planning and choosing bridesmaid dresses—can commence. But with the number of wedding-color ideas and combination possibilities out there, deciding on one can be overwhelming, to say the least. Luckily, as I'm currently in the midst of planning a wedding myself, I found that there are a few things to consider before making this all-important decision. Below, I've listed some wedding-color tips along with a few color pairings that make for a lovely setting.

Speaking from personal experience, the two questions that I was asked the most post-engagement were if I'd found my dress yet and if I'd chosen the colors for the wedding. Choosing the colors was an easy decision for me, but as my wedding planning has since evolved, I'd be lying if I said I hadn't second-guessed my decision a few times (knowing what I know now about the effect it has on a slew of other decisions). So all things considered, I compiled a few factors to consider when deciding on your wedding colors.
