One of the earliest steps in the design process is selecting a color palette for your wedding. It can be very difficult since there is an infinite number of beautiful color combinations to choose from! One thing that might make this process a little easier is a color palette generator. A color palette generator will identify the colors used in a photo that you supply. Some that we love are PHOTOCOPA, DeGraeve, and CSS Drive.
PHOTOCOPA was the fave at Detailz. You can see all of the swatches for the photo uploaded, and then pull them into your custom palette. They also provide a variety of pre-generated palettes from your image. You can also create a login and save your palettes for future use.
DeGraeve is great for web design and looking for bright colors. While they don’t offer all of the colors in the image, they do highlight the most prominent AND give you the HEX codes for HTML. What an easy way to coordinate your Twitter page to your avatar! :)
The final one we used was by CSS Drive. They allow you to either upload a photo, or paste a link to a photo. They also give you the option of a custom palette like PHOTOCOPA, but it’s not as easy to use. It only saves your prior colors clicked, while PHOTOCOPA allows you to rearrange your swatches.

Ok my friends, it’s Monday again & to kick start the creative juices I came across this beautiful & whimsical print that makes you wish you were sitting on a beach chair, reading a good book and listening to the waves crashing…….
As I’ve said before, when I design weddings & events…I garner inspiration from so many different places and this print gives me SOO much to work with!
Can’t you just hear the sea gulls when you look at this???
You must check out this artists work on her online etsy shop here…definitely worth checking out!
Here at Detailz, Karen, our principal designer, finds inspiration for our events everywhere. She then takes those facets and blends them with the personality of the client to create a one-of-a-kind event, custom tailored for the bride and groom.
Below is Karen’s “inspiration board” for our vintage-themed wedding based on a fabric print by Liberty of London (the first item on the board):
Madi, our Envelopments design guru, loves to incorporate these elements into each event’s paper products, such as invitations, itineraries, programs, menus, and place cards. Here are Madi’s creations for the same event: Stay tuned for more images showing all of the Detailz of the resulting event. We will showcase how we incorporated the elements from the original inspiration board with Karen’s twists to give our clients an event like never before.
