the Wedding Color Selector
This online color wheel is
meant to help facilitate the wedding color selection process. For every
color on the wheel there are colors it can co-exist with and others
it cannot. Remember this color wheel is just a base to help you get
started. Not all color combinations generated should be used.
Let's get started
Click on the color you see
as being your primary wedding color. This will be your Base color.
the color wheel you will see a scale (0 - 360 degrees) containing a
small black round pointer (Diagram 1).
By clicking inside this scale you can make slight changes to the color
hue. Remember to click not drag.
There are five color schemes
to choose from (Diagram 2):
scheme is based on only one color tint and uses variations made by changing
saturation and brightness. The result is usually pleasing to the eye.
Contrast: The base
color is supplemented with a color on the opposite side of the wheel.
Although vibrant and cheerful, care should be taken when using contrasting
colors to avoid a jarring look.
Triad: Base color
is supplemented with two complementary colors. This color scheme is
often more comfortable on the eyes than the "Contrast" scheme.
Triad schemes are vibrant and full of energy.
Tetrad: This scheme
is made by a pair of color and their complements. The tetrad scheme
is a very aggressive color scheme therefore it is very important to
pay close attention to how the colors relate to each other.
Analogic: This scheme
is made up of the base color and its two adjacent colors. It usually
produces an elegant, uniform look.
The sliding scale located beneath
the Color Scheme Buttons can be used to set the distance of the complementary
colors from the base color (Diagram 3).
