Top 5 summer wedding color palettes

These are our top 5 wedding color palettes for a summer wedding

With the beginning of the summer also comes the beginning of the wedding season. Many couples decide to tie the knot in the sunniest and warmest season of the year. And we totally understand why. Sunkissed skin, bright blue sky, long summer nights in the backyard with all of your friends – it almost feels like vacation. Summer feels like a warm hug. If this atmosphere isn’t the perfect atmosphere for a wedding, then what else is?

Just like the springtime, summer offers a lot more options when it comes to the floristry. While the colder months of the year do not provide a huge amount of different flowers, the summertime offers many different breeds. And even colorwise, you do not have to follow any given guidelines. Some associate summer with maritime colors, other with bright yellow, orange or red. It is all up to you. But now we have our top 5 summer wedding color palettes for you to get inspired.


Fun and happy coral – as bright as the sunshine

Let’s get started with a very fun and bright summer wedding color scheme. Within this palette, coral is the obvious star. The happy color perfectly matches the happiest day of your life and the pink, apricot and yellow nuances of this color scheme only enhance the playfulness of this wedding concept. Coral is very timeless, even though it is Pantone’s color of the year 2019.  In case you want to look further into a coral wedding concept, you should read this post about a luxurious wedding at the lake. For the accent color, a warm gold makes the perfect addition to a coral wedding palette like this.
