Color Motifs for Summer Weddings

The top color picks for the spring/summer season are soft and refreshing – reflective of ocean hues, candy confections and earthy tones. These colors are perfect for sweet garden weddings and laid-back beach affairs. If you’re tying the knot this summer, here’s how you can inject the stylish shades in your wedding details.

Red, Red Wine


Marsala, Pantone’s Color of the Year, is a popular color for 2015’s weddings. This rich wine red is sophisticated, stylish and versatile that will translate well in elegant affairs. For centerpieces, bouquets and bridesmaid’s dresses, pair this deep shade with either dusty blue or loads of pink and gray for a more romantic feel. Don’t forget the wine!

Pretty in Pink


Pink flowers always make a charming Spring Bouquet. For a garden wedding, pair different shades of pink like Strawberry Ice and Watermelon Pink with Deep Greens. Add hints of soft custard or lemon yellow flowers and details for a playful touch.

Into the Blue


For beach weddings, Aquamarine, Scuba Blue and Classic Blue are all obvious choices. For bridesmaid’s dresses, pair solid blues with creamy shades of white or toasted almond so they can stand on their own. Alternatively, you could pair one strong blue with a contrasting shade. Imagine Scuba Blue and Radiant Orchid floral centerpieces for a modern or beach wedding.

Purple Daze


Lavender, a shade rich in nostalgia, works well for vintage inspired weddings. It gives a distinctive color pop whether worn on its own or combined with other top Spring/Summer 2015 colors like Pistachio Green and Pearl. Incorporate dried or fresh lavenders in rustic flower arrangements and bouquets and bouquets. Also opt for vintage details like table napkins or placeholders in this beautiful color.
