While choosing colors for your wedding, we suggest you allow your creativity to flourish, however you should also think in terms of practicality.  

So, you say how does this work? Well, there is a place for both to exist and even compliment each other.  Consider how colors selected may be incorporated in your life after the wedding for practical use.  For instance, selecting unique wedding decorations in colors that can also be used in your home afterwards, is one way to tackle this challenging feat.  

Trans-seasonal colors like silver, gray, gold or bronze are are also practical and can serve as functional accents in your home for years to come, all while adding flair and pizazz to your wedding or bridal shower.
