THE GENESIS OF CHOOSING COLOURS

Top of the morning beautiful people of Somiii’s ville (that sounds cool right? yea, i like it too). Welcome to Somiii’s Convos, how was your night? Hope you slept well yes? good. So, yesterday, all i did was stalk blogs, discover new blogs, follow new blogs, infact i was lounging in the blogosphere, the things i discovered ehh!! you sef will be excited for Somiii’s Convos and the things to come. (Holy Spirit help me to be consistent ohh, because that’s my Achilles heel.)

Today we are doing COLOURS. I have realised that a lot of people have difficulty in choosing colors for their events, especially brides, the grooms can’t even be bothered about things like this, (no be to wear suit stand for altar) although guys these days are beginning to change that mentality, kudos to them.

COLOUR is what drives the decorations, floral arrangements, bridal party, invitations, aso ebi and just about everything else associated with your event. It plays one of the biggest roles in planning an event. If you’re not quite sure how to find the right shade and make it work for your big day, here are a few pointers;

 Look for inspiration all around you: Start by choosing colours that reflect your personality or colours that you are naturally drawn to. Whose home decor do you admire the most?  the last wedding you went for, how was the decor like? What is your favourite shade of eye shadow, lip gloss/lipstick? What colours do you buy most when you shop? Better still, look through fashion or bridal magazines, the internet, to find out the trending colours.

Consider the venue: A lot of us overlook this, but it’s actually a very vital part of choosing your colours. What are the colours that exist within your venue; are the walls and flooring in soft or vibrant colours? Select a colour/colours that complement your venue. This will avoid too many colours struggling to carry first.

Knock yourself out: Be confident and choose colours that work for you, don’t be afraid to experiment. Choose 2, 3, 4 colours, whatever makes you happy but remember you don’t have to use them everywhere, and all your selections can’t be bright colours. Use the softer colours as the leading colours and the bright ones as accents to have the desired effect. Imagine using royal blue and orange, those are two bright colours and will definitely compete for attention, why not try royal blue and peach/coral or orange and sky blue/teal/turquoise. Remember your colours have to complement each other. How about trying different shades of a particular colour? It always comes out really nice. You can have shades of blue, pink, purple. Whatever you do, don’t be afraid to experiment but experiment with caution biko! Got these pictures from Nigerian wedding.
