YOU'VE KNOWN SINCE YOU WERE 5 THAT YOUR WEDDING WAS GOING TO BE PURPLE, PURPLE, AND MORE PURPLE!  BUT HOW DO YOU CHOOSE THE PERFECT ACCENT COLOR TO COMPLIMENT THE BEAUTIFUL LIGHT LAVENDER THAT YOU'VE CHOSEN FOR YOUR BRIDESMAID DRESSES?  THOUGHT YOU ONLY WANTED TO COMMIT TO ONE COLOR AND ONE COLOR ONLY?  YOU MAY NOT WANT TO BE SO QUICK TO PASS UP ON THE CHANCE TO ADD A SUBTLE COMPLIMENTARY COLOR THAT REALLY MAKES YOUR MAIN CHOICE POP!

AS THEY SAY - OPPOSITES ATTRACT!  ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO SELECT AN ACCENT COLOR IS TO CHOOSE A COLOR THAT IS A DIFFERENT TINT/SHADE AS YOUR MAIN COLOR.  SO IF YOUR MAIN COLOR IS A DEEP SHADE OF BURGUNDY, CONSIDER ACCENTING IT WITH A LIGHTER COLOR SUCH AS ROSE GOLD LIKE THE COMBINATION ABOVE!  IF YOUR MAIN COLOR IS A SOFT BLUSH PINK, TRY THROWING IN SOME NAVY BLUE ACCENTS.  THESE COMBINATIONS ARE VERY PLEASING TO THE EYE AND CAN CREATE A BEAUTIFUL SYNERGY TO YOUR WEDDING.

PASTELS ARE ALL THE RAGE THESE DAYS!  COUPLING TWO PASTELS CAN BE A GORGEOUS COLOR COMBINATION WHEN DONE RIGHT!  A COLORED PASTEL WITH A LIGHT NEUTRAL OR A RANGE OF TINTED PINK CAN LOOK BOTH ELEGANT AND TIMELESS.
