Color Communication

When talking with couples about their destination weddings it’s important to make sure we are on the same page when it comes to color palette.

Is “yellow” a light, buttery yellow or a bright, goldenrod tone?  Is blue a dominant color in your floral palette or an accent tone to complement or contrast the rest of your colors?

A bride recently sent some paint swatches to communicate her color preferences to me and it’s truly a wonderful way to collect tones that closely match the tones you envision.  Whether you have fabric swatches, a stationery sample or paint chips from your local hardware store color sharing is a great way to communicate your style to your designer.

This bouquet has some similar tones to the paint samples, however, the flowers I’ll create for this couple will represent more blue tones and less of the lavender spectrum.  Stay tuned in August for the finished product from that wedding.

How do you talk about color with your floral designer?
