Summer Colour Trends
Colour schemes are always a hot topic when planning a wedding. Trends, seasons, and even the wedding party’s complexions can all influence the colour scheme for your wedding.
With summer approaching, here’s a quick look at the colour trends set to sizzle in the coming season.
Navy blue was a hot colour towards the end of 2013, and it’s still a favourite of many brides as summer approaches. Navy blue trim on crisp white tablecloths, and navy ribbons on white chairs make a striking combination. Accessorise with pink and cream flowers, go earthy by adding green, or make a statement with bright lemon flowers.
Pink is Back
Perfect for the blushing bride, let’s face it, when does pink ever fall out of fashion for weddings? But forget a bright candyfloss pink, this season it’s all about the subtle pinks – nudes, blush and peaches. An unusual contender for this summer is coral pink, or rose gold if you fancy a little sparkle.
Go earthy this summer and look to nature for inspiration for your wedding colour scheme. Grassy greens, sandy coloured nudes, with a hint of neutral blue hues are perfect for a chilled out summer wedding.
If neutral tones are not for you, worry not – bright hues are going to be big this summer. But forget the clashing tones of a carnival and think sophisticated brights. Choose two main colours, such as aqua and pink, or add an additional accent colour like a lemon yellow. Alternatively, use one strong colour for a dynamic look, such as bright pink or bold orange.
Shades of Citrus
Finally, citrus colours such as lemon and fresh lime are set to remain a key trend for summer weddings. They are naturally complimentary colours, and look fabulous if mixed with a little grey.
