Deciding on your color scheme for your wedding is a big decision, and sets the stage for your entire wedding. Your accessories, bridesmaids dresses, flowers, place setting or other table decor, as well as invitations and programs will normally all be decided after you choose your wedding color(s).
Colors help set the mood and show your personality. Another thing you want to be sure is that the colors you choose will go with your location, as well as be appropriate for the season when you get married. Here is an article that talks about the different meanings associated with colors. It could be helpful when deciding what colors you want to use at your wedding.
Coming to the decision for some brides is one of the easiest decisions, while for others it is one of the hardest. Browsing pictures from other weddings is a perfect place to find inspiration.

Here is one of my favorite photos! (well, not because of quality, I just snapped this on my iphone, but because of the brides shoes!) It had been poaring, so the (super adorable) bride (Caroline) had her dress hiked up so as to be sure it didn't get wet and you can see her FANTASTIC shoes! I think this is a perfect place to show your style and colors! So fun!
