“Spinning the color wheel is something Tom Mora, head of women’s design at J. Crew, has noticed for a few seasons. The company’s bridal business, started in 2004, first built a name on plentiful color options and several silhouettes to ensure the wedding party matched. But one of the newer developments, he said, was a mix-and-match approach. In a single bridal party, “there are some who really step out with mixed colors and mixed dresses,” he said, suggesting, for example, differing pastels for a summer wedding.” 

What color palette are you considering for your wedding?
