The Best Color Themes for Spring and Summer Weddings

Way back on Valentine’s Day, we marked the final day of engagement season. That means only one thing – wedding season is here! Many eager young brides are feverishly planning their affair, which is why we’re posting this guide to color themes for spring and summer weddings. These timeless takes are sure to add a real “wow” factor to your wedding.

There’s Nothing Mellow About Yellow!

A bright, sunshiney yellow wedding theme is the perfect way to celebrate springtime romance. This soft, feminine color brings light to its surroundings, whether your wedding is indoors or out. You can add simple pops of yellow and black or grey for a more contemporary look, or layer different shades of yellow for a super warm and cozy feel. Don’t be surprised if your guests are ready to dance the night away once they arrive – yellow is a very energetic color!

Say Goodbye to Boring with Orange!

So many brides opt for pretty colors like reds, blues, and greens and completely neglect this simple yet elegant color. Having an orange wedding theme is a great way to capture the fiery passion of red with the playfulness of yellow – the best of both worlds! Keep it clean and simple with an orange-and-white setup, or make it a super stylish affair by layering orange with pops of red or hot pink – the closeness of these colors on the color wheel makes for a stunning designer look that is sure to have your guests talking.

Feel Like a Pretty Princess with Pink!

If you dreamed of your perfect fairy tale wedding growing up, a pink wedding theme may be just the thing to help you start life with Prince Charming off on the right foot! This bright, happy color is a great way to capture the romance and girlishness of those first few months of your romance. Pink allows you to truly embrace your inner princess in time for your big day. Add pops of hot pink to your flower arrangements and reception decor for a subtle statement, or go glam with hot pink everything!
