Color Splash

I love color, so the process of selecting wedding colors seems like a daunting task. The again, what are wedding colors really for? I have read that the purpose of selecting wedding colors is to set the tone for your wedding reception and tie everything together, but if you have a good aesthetic for color does everything really need to be so matchy matchy? So far  The Perfect Palette and Design Seeds are my favorite sites to search for color inspiration.

I love turquoise or aqua with a bright coral or yellow.

I also like the look of a cool grey accented with muted colors.

Since our entire wedding will be outdoors, I like the idea of playing off natural colors too.

How did/are you picking your wedding colors? How many are too many?
