Find your wedding colors from within a photo #Decor DIY#steal-this-idea#web tools March 7 | Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Ruben and Joaquin's fabulously-colored cake. Photo by Vero Image Remember this favorite color post on Offbeat Home & Life? We LOVE getting color ideas from photos! Sometimes you end up seeing that one photo that captures the mood so well that you must have the colors for your wedding (if you're into wedding colors, anyway). There are fun little tools called color generators that will extract the main colors of a photo for you, allowing you to snag and save them for your shopping trips. Match your dress to some paper flowers, match your ribbon backdrop to a cake… you get the idea. One of our favorites is the generator from DeGraeve.com, which gives you the colors in two versions: muted and bright, depending on what you're going for. Just upload your inspiration photo and see what colors get generated. Here are a few more online wedding tools designed to make your day go more smoothly.
