When planning a wedding, one of the best places to begin is by selecting your wedding colors. The color palette will help you to make all of your style decisions, from flowers to bridesmaid dresses to the wedding cake. These are some lovely ideas for summer wedding color palettes.
Navy and Lime Green: Do nautical motifs make you swoon? Do you believe that classic is best when it comes to weddings? If so, the perfect palette for your summer wedding is navy blue and lime green! The navy is timeless and elegant, while the light and bright green is perky and summery. For a wedding, the colors are also amazingly easy to use. A navy strapless dress with a wonderful pearl necklace and a bouquet of green hydrangeas will be a gorgeous look for the bridesmaids. Navy suits with lime green patterned ties is a simple but handsome look for the men in your wedding. And for the bride, a green hydrangea bouquet accentuated with a navy grosgrain ribbon will look beautiful with a crisp white organza gown. Keep your decorations classic with crisp, timeless details like stripes, nautical motifs, and small polka dots.
Flamingo Pink and Tangerine: For 2011 weddings, bright flamingo pink is quickly becoming a major trend. This bright color palette looks stupendous for a casual outdoor wedding. Imagine scores of paper lanterns strung over the reception site in pink and orange. Layer pink table squares over tangerine linens for vivid table settings. Fill the ceremony and reception venues with blossoms colored flamingo and tangerine. Many different kinds of flowers can be found in these hues, such as lilies, roses, dahlias, and orchids. Be sure your chocie of bridesmaid dress is not overwhelming– a dress in just one of the palette colors with a mixed bouquet is gorgeous and elegant. Keep bridesmaid jewelry simple when the dresses are vivid – a pearl pendant or short crystal drop necklace will be just enough.
Yellow cialis without prescription and Apricot: Sunny yellow is always pretty for a summer wedding. It gains a romantic, vintage flair when combined with apricot. Yellow and apricot would be especially lovely for a garden wedding. Make amazing bouquets and centerpieces with loose arrangments of garden roses, ranunculus, sweet peas, and French tulips. This color combination looks especially great in faded floral prints, which can be used for all kinds of details, from the tablecloths to the bridesmaid dresses. A soft ivory lace gown would be exquisite for the bride. A stunning pearl necklace in a soft apricot color is a very flattering alternative to white pearls for the bride.
Lilac and Khaki: Neutral colors sometimes get overlooked when planning a wedding color palette, but they can be very chic. Lilac on its own is a popular color trend for 2011, and when combined with cool khaki it has a new elegance and sophistication. Use the neutral khaki color for the majority of the wedding details, such as the tablecloths, seat covers, and stationery. The lilac can be introduced to create romantic accents; it is perfect for the wedding flowers, the wedding cake, and for the flower girl’s dress. Lilac and khaki is a versatile color palette– it can be modern, with streamlined details, or classically elegant.
Once you have selected the perfect color palette for your summer wedding, the planning will be a breeze. It’s always helpful to gather samples from paint stores in your signature hues–that way you can always have it on hand when looking for bridesmaid dresses, centerpieces, and all your wedding necessities. Happy planning!
