Now that we're officially entering peak wedding season, it may help to discuss the varying color fluctuations that come with summertime events. Classic themes that involve ivory, white, gold and silver will always reign supreme no matter what the time of year, but hosting your wedding between May and August gives you some extra special options to play with.
If nothing else, use your environment as inspiration. Reminiscing about those bold tropical blooms you saw on your most recent vacation? Light up your wedding with hues of honeysuckle, tangerine and blue-violet accents. If your memories of summer include fresh-cut grass, a kelly green hue paired with a watermelon pink will help create the ambiance you desire.
According to WeddingChannel.com, yellow and slate gray make a great "summer wedding in the city" choice. Meanwhile, cherry red and aqua are great for outdoor summer weddings, and "fun-loving brides and grooms" may opt for turquoise, orange and lemon.
Keep in mind that just because you have a theme picked out doesn't mean you're creating a rigid template for your special affair. Personalized wedding favors can definitely fall outside the color scheme, and you can hang up round paper lanterns in a classic shade of white, even if your chosen palette gives off a much bolder personality.
