Color, color, color!
Every wedding has a lot of the same elements - they all have flowers, photographers, dresses, centerpeices, venues to find and decorate, and so on and so on. Each bride has to decide what suits her best and one of the hardest things to choose is color.
The Knot.com has a great article on some inspiring colors and combos. Even if you don't love their combs it can inspire you to find something that you love.
Color is fabulous - don't be afraid to use it! I also encourage my brides to use textures and unconventional items to give depth and a unique feel to their ceremony and reception.
