When you’re a bride, everyone knows the rules. A bride can do and wear and even say whatever she wants to on her wedding day. That’s because it’s her day. This means that if you’re someone who has been planning your wedding in your head ever since you were a little girl, you may already know what colors you want to go with.
But on the off chance that you’re in the process of planning a summer wedding and you’re interested in knowing what some of the biggest summer wedding color trends are, we’ve provided you with two different ways to use 12 different ones.
You never know. Even with all of the plans you already have, one of these colors could change your mind!
1. Champagne wedding dress
A white wedding dress is traditional. But if you want to go with a light shade that is not as stark as white, champagne is a romantic option.
2. Turquoise beach wedding decor
The summertime is an ideal one to have a destination wedding. Preferably one that’s on the beach. If you agree, some turquoise decor will be so amazing by the water.
3. Plum bridesmaid dresses
You might have thought that plum would be a better color for fall or winter. But if you like warm hues, it’s actually really big for the summer season this year.
4. Silver brooch bouquet
Something that’s big in fashion right now? Brooches. And a color that’s really big for weddings this summer? Silver. Did you ever think that the two could go together so divinely as this?
5. Hunter green jewelry
Hunter green is a rich color that some brides are using as an accent color for the wedding. One way to do that is with your bridal party’s jewelry.
6. Teal wedding cupcake tower
Have you been seriously thinking about going without a traditional wedding cake? Teal is a trending wedding color. Why not make a cupcake tower in that color?
7. Marigold flower crown
If you’ve been thinking about you and your bridal party, wearing flower wreaths, marigold is a really festive color!
8. Cream rose table settings
It’s no wonder that cream rose is “in” right now. It’s so rich and romantic—both at the same time.
9. Azalea table settings
But if you want to be in the pink family but you’d prefer to go with something that is much bolder and brighter, how about azalea? It would be perfect for a wedding reception.
10. Teal flower girl’s dress
A flower girl is precious, no matter what she wears. But there’s something about this little teal dress that makes us immediately saw “Awwwwwh.”
11. Lavender seeds
Here’s an idea. Lavender is a popular summer color too. So, rather than having your guests throw rice, provide them with some lavender seeds instead. It’s pretty. It’s fragrant. And it’s so much better for the environment (including the little birdies) too.
12. Hunter green groomsmen tie
Here’s another way to make hunter green work. In the form of a groomsmen tie.
13. Custom blue wedding dress
If you totally want to buck traditional colors when it comes to your wedding dress, here’s a magnificent way to wear “something blue”.
14. Azalea bouquet
If your heart is already set on your wedding colors and they have nothing to do with bright pink, at least consider making your throwaway bouquet in azalea. It’s the kind of color that shouldn’t be passed up. Especially during the summer.
15. Turquoise wedding cake
Here’s something else that you can do with turquoise. You can accent your wedding cake with it.
16. Champagne bridesmaid dress
Some people think that the only person who should wear white at a wedding is the bride. But if you’re a bride-to-be that wants your bridal party in a variation of white, champagne is a really beautiful wedding party color.
17. Marigold chair decor
Here’s another way to make marigold work. It can really brighten up the chairs of an outdoor wedding reception.
18. Plum garter
Sometimes pops of color can show up and some of the most unexpected places. Like a garter belt. The plum is so deep and rich that it’s simply gorgeous.
19. Cream rose cake
A cream rose cake looks delicious. Just imagine how great it will taste when you and your beloved take a first bite!
20. Lavender boutonnieres
There aren’t a ton of guys who are going to tap dance at the thought of wearing purple. But if you use lavender as say, the flowers in the groom and groomsmen boutonnieres, they’ll look so handsome and feel so confident.
21. Silver bridal shoes
As a bride, white shoes can be so boring. Spice up your wedding dress even more with some silver rhinestones.
22. Winter white aisle
If you’ve always dreamed of a winter wedding but you can’t wait to say “I do” to the one you love, just like there’s Christmas in July, you can also have a wedding winter wonderland then too.
23. Custom blue bridal shoes
We all know that a bride is (traditionally) supposed to have “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue”. It’s always a nice touch when she decides to make the shoes her “something blue”.
24. Winter white wedding dress
It makes sense to close this out with winter white in the form of a bridal gown. All of those crystals will make you sparkle just as much as your eyes are sure to as you’re walking down the aisle!
