One of the most important parts of the wedding planning process- after having an amazing dress, is an amazingly designed space to celebrate. The first step to making your dream space come true is choosing the right colour palette. Colour has a way of sparking the event to life and crafting a magical atmosphere where memories are made and photographs are captured.

To help our beautiful brides-to-be and dashing grooms along, we have compiled 4 signature summer wedding colours and styles- not forgetting the importance of tying in the colour combinations between wedding gowns, bridesmaid’s dresses and men’s looks.

wild & bold

Make a quirky statement with turquoise, fuchsia, and gold! If you’re looking for something more unconventional for your special day, then these bright and bold summer wedding colours might just be it. This may be a little hard to believe but fuchsia happens to go with everything and in every season.

Add fuchsia flowers to your centrepieces and use the colour in your vases, candles, plates, and even table runners. Add a touch of stylish sophistication by incorporating gold into your cutlery or table accessories, or if you’re looking for something a little extra, you can also use sequins  which will add texture to the space. To balance out this bold palette, consider using natural colours like wood for contrast.

bright and white

Much loved summer wedding colours, White and greenery is a popular palette for your special day. It is bold yet classic and offers simplicity and softness. This organic inspired colour combo should be used to accentuate an airy space. Consider incorporating lush greenery into your ceremony backdrops, draping as well as the reception space. This colour combination lends itself to boho, modern and minimalist themes and is visually pleasing.

Create a wow factor by mixing benches and plush pillows in the seating arrangement. Flower crowns are a must if you want to make a quirky statement, and bud vases and succulents are an amazing option for elegant minimalism.

keep it classy with lavender & cream

This spring / summer wedding colour combination calls for a soft classic spring event. Lavender is a calming and healing colour, a medium purple with pink notes that is usually used in creating zen spaces. If you are looking for something light and airy, the unobtrusive colour offers a feminine touch and an airy feel to the whole event.

Lavenders can be incorporated into the wedding in various ways, consider using them in the bouquet or the groomsmen’s boutonnieres. The wedding invite can have a touch of lavender shades to pre-empt your big day and actual lavenders can be used in your gift, either as a bath salt or even just seeds, that represent something significant (like the growth of love)

playful in pink

Pink is the epitome of romance and a fairy-tale in the making. A mixture of different hues of pink is bound to make the day soft and full of love. Consider pink flowers, ribbons, napkins, draping, and candles.

Combined with a shade of ivory, a darker pink like fuchsia, the pink theme can be elevated to something a little more different from the classic theme. A splash of this brighter colour will bring excitement to the eyes and the overall space. And if you’re looking for something glamourous, you can add glitter to the mix; the shimmer will brighten up the reception venue and make sure you have a special and sparkly evening. Pink is also a great colour to involve in the day’s food; there is pink lemonade, strawberry flavoured frosting, and so many other ways you can incorporate the colour into your menu.
