Tips for Summer Wedding Colors

Summer is the time for bold decisions, especially when you are planning a summertime wedding. The right colors will best express the splendor of summer, and your love, in full bloom. Choose colors for your wedding that will embrace the promise of summer and reflect your unique tastes.

Design your summer wedding color scheme around the bounty of nature. The bold colors found in summer blooms and foliage offer great inspiration for your wedding color palette.

Push pastel colors to the background to be used as accents in a summer color palette. These light shades are better used as the center of a spring-color palette instead.

Use a flower significant to you and your future spouse as inspiration for your summer wedding color scheme. You can place the color of its blooms at the center of your design while using accent colors in table linens and bridal-party dresses.

Express more about you and your fiancé by choosing colors with significant meaning. Remember that yellow is frequently associated with friendship and compassion while green gives an aura of fertility.

Coordinate your decorations and stationery by using a recurring combination of colors. You can use accents like ribbons, confetti and candles to introduce accent colors in all aspects of your wedding design.

Take advantage of the tropical feel of a beach wedding and use the colors of native fruits, such as papaya orange, pink passion fruit or yellow pineapple. You can use these punchy colors in combinations or alone to create a striking, monochromatic color scheme.

Select a metallic accent for your summer wedding, such as silver-brushed aluminum or platinum. From napkin rings to wedding favor frames, this spark of metal will add style to your reception tables.

Soften colors traditionally associated with winter and fall by adding warm hues, such as pink or yellow. Even the dark green of winter can be made summery by this addition.
