More Benefits of Wedding Color Swatches

Colors swatches are a game changer when it comes to planning your dream wedding. Check out a few benefits of bridesmaids and wedding party swatches.

1) Easily Coordinate Your Wedding Party Colors (Bridesmaids & Groomsmen!)

Wedding swatches are not just limited to bridesmaids; they can also be instrumental in achieving seamless coordination between your entire wedding party, including the groomsmen!

When it comes to matching the ties, vests, pocket squares, or any other accessories of your groomsmen with the bridesmaid dresses, swatches are priceless. With the guidance of a swatch, you can ensure precise color matching and maintain a consistent look throughout your party. This attention to detail ensures a polished appearance, as colors can vary significantly when relying solely on digital or verbal descriptions.

Once you have chosen your wedding color scheme and selected the bridesmaid dress colors, you can use the swatches to match and coordinate other elements of your wedding.

Whether it's selecting the right table linens, floral arrangements, or even the groomsmen's accessories, having the actual fabric swatches on hand allows you to make accurate color comparisons. This ensures that all the visual elements of your wedding align seamlessly, creating a cohesive look.

What are the reasons for color swatches on a mood board

I like how you mentioned that using swatches can help vendors stay on the same page when it comes to color hue. I’m very happy that I came across this article when I did because I’m helping out with my cousin’s wedding preparation. You definitely made a point when you said that specifying a color the vendors does not necessarily mean that they’ll have the same hue in mind and that having swatches can prevent confusion. I definitely learned a lot from this fun read and I’ve sure to have my cousin source color swatches the soonest. Thanks! http://bredemeier.com/products/swatch-cards/

My cousin is getting married soon and wants some help choosing colors for the venue. I like that you mention how sharing swatch cards with vendors can help ensure you get the right colors and avoid disappointment. I think this sounds really helpful, especially if you are ordering from multiple businesses. I’ll be sure to recommend this to my cousin. Thanks for sharing! http://bredemeier.com/products/swatch-cards/

These are some very convincing reasons why color swatches should be used when planning a wedding especially that point about everyone sees colors differently. Everyone thinks when I say my favorite color is orange they think of the bright hunter orange when I’m talking about the orange in a sunset. Weddings are stressful to plan and I’m pretty positives that more brides would use swatches if they were more aware of the advantages of using it. http://bredemeier.com/products/swatch-cards/
