My choice of favorite color changes all the time. Right before I was engaged, I was all about the pink and brown combo. Before that, I was into oranges and yellows. With wedding planning, I became obsessed with the perfect shade of green. Now, I’ve moved on to the ever-popular Martha Stewart blue and red combo.
When I picked out our wedding color palette, I started with the green shade and looked at several options for accent colors. The easiest way for me to pick them out was by going to the home improvement store and snatching up paint chips. I love paint chips!
You may remember my swatch card, where I utilized the paint chips by placing them on a small card I could tote around in my purse. I can’t tell you how many times I referred to this little card when I was out shopping for wedding supplies, or even when I was browsing through a random store and saw something I thought might work for wedding decor.
Just today, I found an iPhone app that is the high-tech version of my little swatch card. It helps with choosing color palettes by allowing you to snap a picture of something that’s a color you like, and then it gives you two complementary colors as accents. Bonus: It’s FREE!
