Wedding Colors That PERFECTLY Compliment Your Skin


Weddings are more than black and white. Your skin tone can be a great place to start in choosing your wedding colors. To choose colors that compliment you skin tone, you need to determine what type of skin tone you have: warm, cool or neutral. There is an easy way to do this. Hold a plain white sheet of paper next to your face and compare you skin color to it. If your skin has a green, yellow, olive or light brown tint to it, you have a warm skin tone. If it's pink, rosy, or bluish, you have a cool skin tone. And if it seems grayish or you can't determine a color, you may have neutral skin tone.


Once you've determined your skin tone, you can still pick colors from the warm, neutral or cool color groups, but you should make sure to choose the right colors from within those groups. For any of these colors, always choose shades that are more natural or earth tones. To learn why, check out my article: Wedding Colors That Look GREAT In Video and Photos.

Let's talk warm skin. First, for warm colors, pick colors such as reds, peaches or golds. For cool colors, go with warmer cools, like olive greens or violets. Definitely avoid cool blues and jewel tones.

For those of you with cool skin, start with cool colors. Blues, purples and pinks look great. On the warm side, stick with rosier pinks and reds, and pale yellows. Avoid strong red, orange and yellow warms.

If you have neutral skin, good news: you can wear any color! Just stick to more muted or neutral tones and avoid strong, over-saturated colors.

There are a handful of colors that look good on anyone, such as teal, eggplant and light bluish-pink.
