Summer is finally in full swing and it's got us feeling all sorts of inspired. The long, hot days and bright blue skies are the perfect excuse to break out bolder colors when it comes to our clothes, makeup and pretty much everything! We've rounded up 5 bold summer wedding color combinations which look elegant and sophisticated.
Turquoise & Tangerine
Remember when you were taught about complementary colors in art class? Here we're taking that lesson to the next level by pairing turquoise and tangerine! We already know that blue and orange work well together, but you do not want your wedding to remind your guests of the color wheel! So instead choose tones within the same color families (blue and orange) for a more sophisticated and tasteful vibe. You can ground the bright tones with neutrals such as white to create visual space and to keep things from becoming overwhelming.
Fuchsia & Green
Fuchsia can be elegant when paired with deep greens like in the pictures below. The bright pink is a perfect, cheerful color for summer weddings! This color combination is just right for a bohemian wedding with lots of vibrant flowers as decor. Green works well with fuchsia because the two are at opposite ends of the color wheel. You can also add in some natural rustic elements, such as wood and earth tones, to bring the color scheme together. We love both fuchsia and green in bridesmaid dresses, but be sure to add in white flowers for balance.
Indigo & Yellow
Nothing says summer like the color yellow! It's a color associated with sunflowers and beautiful hot days in the sun. To add this color into your summer wedding, we suggest pairing it with something more sophisticated like indigo. Indigo is not quite blue and not quite purple, but it is the perfect match. Darker colors such as indigo tend to look great on most skin tones which means happy bridesmaids for you, and then you can go to town adding bright pops of yellow. Lastly, add in some grey for sophistication and you're all set for a beautiful wedding.
Coral & Seafoam
Coral and seafoam are a more "traditional" color scheme for weddings, but instead of choosing muted hues, opt for the boldest coral you can find and then soften the look with a pale seafoam blue. Incorporate both colors into the bridesmaid dresses by going for a mix and match look and top it off with a bright coral bouquet.
Marigold & Peach
Finally, we have marigold and peach! This combination is unlike the others because instead of choosing complementary colors we are picking two warm tones. Marigold is much deeper than a yellow with orange undertones which makes it an ideal pairing for peach. These colors create almost a monochromatic look, but it's far from boring (just be sure to use different textures and elements)! You can throw in some gold, white, or red for even more visual interest.
Hopefully all these bold summer colors have inspired you to think beyond the safety of pastels for your summer wedding!
