The Knot wedding planner has a great section for selecting colors…. there’s a full page of color chips you detach and move around to see what you like the most.  I think the whole binder cost me $20, but it was definitely worth it

We didn’t pick colors. I kept a sample of our invitation and a swatch from my dress in my purse. Everything we picked coordinated with those two things.

Same here, I did not pick advance colors.  I just used things that I liked and thought would compliment the venue.  My invitation was a bit of a jumping off point as well.  

I remember I kept reading about picking color palettes and I just  did not get the concept so I skipped it.

I have a scarf with all the colours I like.  So it was easy.  That said it looks like you have an idea of where you want to go.  And Perfect Palette is a great place to visualise your ideas.

we are doing spring jewel tones- pretty much spot on with what you’re gravitating towards! choosing coordinating colors rather than a matchy matchy thing. i think your floral arrangements will be key in tying everything together <3

I would take look at your venue and identify the most prominent colors and what neutral colors/materials are used in the venue’s architectural features (wood, white picket fence, metal handles, iron light fixtures). From there you can plug those into a palette picker and figure out what color scheme enhances the space.

I also didn’t pick colors. I picked flowers first, and spoke to the florist about what colors of the flowers I chose would be the least expensive.

i dont know, trying to incorporate more then two colors in all the wedding details sounds stressful to me. But i do love the rustic theme weddings. I would choose either burgundy and teal or copper rose and navy.
