Deciding on a color scheme for your wedding can involve many factors, including the look and feel of your venue, your personal style, and the time of year.

Summer is a magical time a wedding and there are an infinite amount of color combinations available. Almost no color is off limits in the summertime, so long as it’s represented in the right proportions, and with complementary colors in the pallet. Take a look at some of our favorite summer wedding color schemes and combinations for inspiration.

Discover 7 of the best summer wedding colors and combinations:

1. Soft neutrals

2. Subtle lilac

Like fresh lavender adds a soothing sensation to sweet lemonade, tones of light blue, lilac, and pale mauve will give your special day an air of tranquility and serenity. Squeeze a few drops of lemon yellow to this pallet for a kiss of sunshine.

3. Perky citrus

Juicy coral hues, peach, and orange make for a sweet, cheerful scene. Add hints of cream and blush and lush greenery to balance the reddish tones in this pallet. Complement with pearl accents or metallic décor for an added flair.

4. Lush berry

Complement a picturesque rustic venue with rich wine and berry tones and scattered traces of white, blush, and golden yellow. To avoid a scene that’s too autumnal, enhance your pallet with brilliant turquoise and purple florals. Pair natural wood and stone accents, dusty rose linens, and brass or pewter flatware.

5. Cool colors

Icy blues and minty greens are like a cool breeze on a warm summer’s day. Usher in a cool breeze with shades of eucalyptus, greyed blues, and off white. For a touch of warmth and sunlight, add a bit of pale peach and dusty rose. Keep it airy and avoid dark hues like black and navy blue.

6. Perfect pink

Give your wedding a unique touch with bursts of hot pink, cherry, pastel pink, and magenta. Play it up with spots of bright yellow, berry, and orange, or tone it down with shades of cream, grey, and pale green. Allow your pinks to pop against a clean, mostly white background.

7. Bright and bold

There’s no time like summertime to go all out on color. If your budget can accommodate it, go for beautifully vibrant floral arrangements, using combinations of marigold, pink, magenta, peach, orange, lilac and green. Keep all other décor simple and clean to allow these hues to really shine. Use off-white linens and natural wood chairs to ground the bright florals.
