Floral Design Tip: Color Palette Considerations




When it comes to picking your color palette, think and design with the end in mind! 
Many flowers come in a variety of shades and will be difficult to “match” just perfectly. I always encourage clients to think beyond matching flowers to their bridesmaid dresses or linens and instead, coordinate them to enhance the overall design. Think of just how many shades of “pink” or “blush” there are out there! Plus, sometimes one single bunch of flowers will have varying shades in it. Even a single flower can have different tones to it. 
Having a well-designed color palette will allow your florist to use it to enhance your day by bringing a sense of cohesion and coordination. 
For example, the photo above was designed with a terracotta and mauve color palette. There are shades of each of those colors throughout and working on the scale of color allowed us to play with blushes through browns. 
If you’re unsure of your color palette, be prepared with one or two colors you want to see incorporated, and let your florist work their magic designing the rest!
