There is no better mood enhancer than color therapy. Tired of darkness that falls too early? Get yourself some brazenly pink tulips. Sick of slush? Slip on a pair of Crayola-yellow wellies. Color is the perfect antidote to the winter doldrums. It is joy. It is laughter. It is beauty.
These days, with so many gorgeous wedding-related goods available to you in colors that span the spectrum, it's easier than ever to pull together a celebration that positively glows. The hardest part? Deciding on your palette.
Below are ideas to brighten up your nuptials (who says pastels have to monopolize your big-day style?).
-- Pick a hue, any hue, and chances are high that there's a favor box in that shade (and in the shape you wish!).
-- If you can't find a bloom in the exact color you want, fake it with faux flowers.
-- Invitations that pop with color are very of-the-moment for more casual celebrations.
-- When else will you be able to use ribbon with such abandon? Take full advantage and go with the flow.
-- For a subtle way to inject color into your wedding, look for stamps that match your palette or custom-print using colored ink or paper.
-- Color and candy are practically synonymous -- and for good reason: They suit each other.
