Who else lives for summer?! Barbecues, the beach with your toes in the sand, and sunsets at nearly 9pm. Everything is brighter and better. We love summer and have had our fair share of hot (and very sweaty) summer weddings. It can definitely be rough, but the majority of our wedding season stretches across those warm summer months. We’ve seen a lot of great summer colors at weddings and some others that find there way into all of the seasons. For example, we’re seeing a lot of grey suits which look so classic. Of course, we’re also noticing a lot of blue and maroon. That’s one of those combinations that fits in regardless of the season. Anyway, we’re in the middle of our popular wedding color series and so, without further ado, here are a few of our favorite summer wedding colors to inspire your summer wedding.
Light Grey + Mint has become quite a standard color we’ve seen in the past. We love this color combination as it also keeps the palette on the light and airy side of things. The mint is such a beautiful accent color to the light grey tux making everything really pop without being too bold of a color. Pairing this with a light grey suit is a great match. A mint pocket square or tie might really tie it all together nicely.
Grey + Lavender or light purple is such a beautiful color that we don’t see all that often, but when we do it looks so beautiful. We often see a grey and deep blue palette. That’s really popular right now and it does look beautiful, but if you want to switch it up, you could always swap the blue for a light purple or lavender color. The lavender keeps your color palette light, summery, and elegant. It blends and coordinates well with so many colors, especially greens. You can’t go wrong with the grey and lavender color palette.
So this isn’t as much as a single pairing of two single colors together, but more so the full breadth of a pastel color palette. The best way to accomplish this palette is by having each bridesmaid where a different color dress. We’ve seen this a few times in the past and it is really beautiful as it adds a huge splash of color. Keeping the colors on the pastel, softer side will ensure that there isn’t too much color vibrantly shouting at you. This is a favorite of ours and we love photographing it every time.
