Summer Wedding Colour Trends
Summer is the warmest season of the year and can be the most inspiring for young couples eager to tie the knot. Summer weddings usually sport the brightest, boldest colour palettes. It’s the perfect time to throw your nuptial soiree, flowers are plentiful, the weather is great and everyone feels so much more relaxed during the summer time.
This season’s all about light, bright colours, and with the hot summer sun rising on the horizon, we couldn’t help but put together this list of the brightest and most cheerful colour combinations for your perfect wedding.
Lemon and watermelon are the ultimate summer colour palette. Use these zingy colours to add zest to your wedding. This combination lends itself perfectly to garden-based weddings as there are so many varieties of flowers in these shades. Think floral extravaganzas, flower crowns and colourful flower buttons. The cake can be decorated with fresh flowers and fruity cocktails are surely a fun tie in with this lively colour scheme.
Soft neutrals and pastels
If bold and bright is not your thing, soft palettes are timeless and appealing and work well for formal weddings. Bring a neutral colour scheme to life with your favourite metallic. Gold and blush look gorgeous together and create a lush, romantic effect. Use the metallic accent on your wedding stationery and tableware, combine sequinned runners with linen on tabletops, have gold candle holders and use it also for your wedding favours.
A colour palette of navy and dark sage green is the perfect sultry combination of colours for those weddings at the tail end of summer. Brighten up the palette with metallics and atmospheric lighting. Create romance and drama with tall, blue taper candles and use gold centrepiece vases. Play up the greenery in floral arrangements and dress the wedding party in smart navy.
Bright and Beautiful
Create a vibrant, fiesta atmosphere with bright blue and fuchsia. Use a hot pink shade and complement it with a calming blue hue. You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to pink blooms. Try introducing these bold shades into the wedding stationery for a modern, contemporary look and use for invitations, wedding programs and menus. For a light-hearted touch, serve cocktails made up in these summery colours.
What could be more romantic than a palette of vibrant pinks anchored with lush green? This colour palette lends itself to beautiful flower arrangements. Think flower arches of pink blooms and green foliage and festooned pillars festooned to create perfect photo opportunities. Use fresh flowers as hair accessories for the bridesmaids and flower girls. Have the cake decorated with fresh or sugar paste flowers and give out pink sugared almonds as wedding favours.
On the Beach
What could be more summery than a beach wedding? Teal, purple and blue bring together all the beautiful hues that make up a beach setting. The colours of the sky and the sea perfectly complement the blue and green shades whilst purple adds a regal touch. Use white drapes and table linen to allow the colours of nature to really stand out. Pick out the accent colours with coloured glass candle holders and use teal or purple for the bridesmaids’ gowns.
