Any good Venue Stylist will help you select the right things to draw the eyes of your guests away from things that might not gel with your style.
If your venue is contemporary in style, it’s possible to use any colour, as the neutral tones of the venue will push your colour forwards.

There’s a little known tool you can use when picking your colour palette.
The Colour Wheel can be used to find what will work the best with your primary colour. You don’t want them to clash!
Colours adjacent to each other on the wheel are classed as complimentary colours, so will suit the main colour you’ve selected.
However, if you want your colours to pop, look at the colour directly opposite your shade on the wheel, as these are contrasting colours, which also work perfectly as a team.
