Creative Brown Fox

Plum, lavender and peach

This deep purple shade is traditionally seen as a fall wedding color, but it’s actually a great option for summer weddings, too! Pair it with light peach, lavender, and white to brighten up the color palette so the plum color feels appropriate for the summer season.

Pink, yellow and orange

Citrus-inspired colors like pink, yellow, and orange make a great statement on the big day. These bright shades are whimsical and upbeat, making them a great pick if you’re looking for an all-night party atmosphere. We love how they look when paired with metallic gold and natural accents, like wood and leather (like this table cloth).

Green, white and copper

Get a modern and minimalist atmosphere by using green, white and copper as colors for your summer wedding. This trio is one of the most versatile color palettes – it works for almost all styles depending on the specific décor you use. This decor is casual and tropical, thanks to the monster leaf and wooden charger paired with basic white plates.

Blush & blue

Whether you’re looking for a rustic chic look or an updated classic, blush and blue are always a winning combination. These summer wedding colors are light and airy, and they’re easy to incorporate into almost every part of your big day, from attire to flowers, to table linens, to stationery. How cool does this bridesquad look in his denim jackets?

Blush & sage

If blush and blue are too common for your taste, try blush and sage green instead. This washed green is on our radar to be one of the next great wedding colors – plus, it gives you an excuse to include lots of lush green in your wedding décor!

Summer is a fabulous opportunity to try a neutral color palette. With ethereal hues like ivory, beige, and gray, your wedding aesthetic will feel refreshing and chic (perfect for those hot summer days). Break up the neutrals by adding muted colors using details like seasonal fruits, like figs and Bartlett pears.


Orange, green and teal

If you like the idea of ​​a playful vibe, these are the summer wedding colors for you. Combine bold orange and teal colors with accent colors like green and white to create a tropical island-inspired color palette. Whether you’re getting married on the beach or looking for a way to recreate that laid-back atmosphere with a tropical wedding theme, we love this tasty combination!

Pink and green

Here’s another island-inspired combination that we just can’t get enough of. This color palette already has its own matching flowers – proteas and anthuriums, which happen to be one of this year’s swedding flower trends. Combine a pink and green palette with white accents to make the colors pop.

Muted & Moody

Not all summer wedding colors have to be bright and bold. Darker shades, like mulberry and emerald green, put a moody spin on a traditional summer color palette, like ivory, blush, and peach. We think this is a great alternative if you are looking for something that is highly romantic but not over the top.

Red white and blue

The summer season is one of the few times a year that this patriotic color palette can be brought out. Naturally, it is perfect if you are having a wedding on Memorial Day weekend or if you are getting married on the 4th of July. Use shades of red, white and blue for the most modern version of the American wedding style.

Coral and light green

We couldn’t talk about our favorite summer wedding colors without mentioning the 2021 Pantone Color of the Year, Living Coral. We already know that this striking color is amazing when paired with neutral colors like white and gold, but coral is surprisingly elegant with an unexpected color like light green. It is impossible to have a bad day when you are surrounded by this cheerful palette!

Golden Wisdom Events

Yellow, green and gray

Hints of lemon yellow will instantly brighten up a basic green and gray color palette. These elegant summer wedding colors are reminiscent of an intimate garden party – preferably one surrounded by lemon trees in a villa in the Tuscan countryside. We can dream, right?


Peach, mauve and brown

We revel in this color palette that is part romantic and part bohemian (see more bohemian wedding theme ideas here). We know what you are thinking, brown as an accent color? But trust us when we say that brown brings an element of warmth and richness to your décor, especially when incorporated through nature-inspired details like feathers, driftwood, and dried herbs.

Attractive Events

Blue and white

When it comes to summer wedding colors, there are few palettes more classic and timeless than blue and white. This tried and true combination is beautiful year after year, and it works for just about any wedding style, whether it’s a nautical theme, a formal garden wedding, or a mermaid-inspired wedding.
