There are some tips that we also need to consider:
Put your bridesmaids in the most flattering wedding colors possible. If your color scheme is fuchsia and lime green, make their dresses fuchsia, as lime green is very hard for most people to pull off.
Choose a color that looks good in photos. If you’re having an outdoor wedding, choose bolder colors that won’t “wash out” in photos. More muted colors, such as silver or pale blue are best for indoors, where the dimmer lighting allows for more photographic attention to detail.
Keep it classy. Less, is almost always more. Colors should accent and excite, not overwhelm. If you’re using a bright, bold color, such as red, keep everything else as simple and clean as possible.
Lastly, consider the weather and season. Light and bright colors usually for spring and summer, while solid and bold colors are for winter.
