Summer weddings are a forever favorite amongst brides and guests, thanks to warm-weather trademarks like sun-drenched ceremony sites, abundant greenery, and vibrant wedding color palettes.
When planning summer weddings, many brides look to bright oranges, bold yellows, and cheerful blues for their color scheme. But don’t be afraid to color outside the lines! Punchy primary hues, tropical greens, and rustic neutrals are all unexpected tones that’ll look right at home at summer weddings. For a seasonal soirée that looks just as good in person as it does in photos, we tapped wedding planning experts Shannon Wellington, owner of Shannon Wellington Weddings & Events; Jenny Schneider, owner of Jenny Schneider Events; Lisa Newberry, former assistant director of catering and events at Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows; and Caitlin Campbell, senior event coordinator and designer at True Event for shade suggestions that will make any summer wedding stand out.
