Pastel shades and earthy tones have been popular colour schemes at weddings of late, but we are championing the brightly coloured summer wedding! If you’re planning a summer wedding, take inspiration from the bright and beautiful wedding colour schemes listed below...
Yellow, Green and Orange
A citrus inspired colour palette is a natural choice for a summer wedding. These zesty shades will stand out and look vibrant on your wedding day. Use fresh fruit, such as lemons, limes and oranges to add to your wedding décor, and incorporate them in other ways too. Orange slice cufflinks from JujuTreasures will give the groomswear a quirky twist, whilst the glittery orange segment cake toppers from WishDaisy will add zest to any wedding cakes.
Leave each of your guests a themed favour in the form of lemon shaped soaps from JuliesSugarSoaps and bring your colour theme to life with orange, yellow and green garlands, like these from Jellybeanstudio. Finally, give your guests a glimpse of your citrus wedding theme with matching stationery, from Nraevsky.

Coral and Aqua
If you want an unusual bright wedding colour scheme, consider combining coral with a striking aqua shade. This fun colour combination works well with discreet gold detailing too, and the tassel garland by GlamFeteByBri perfectly combines aqua, coral and gold. For a really bold look, dress some of your bridesmaids in coral dresses, like the 2889 from Dessy, and others in a vibrant aqua shade.
The cute vintage inspired hair slide from JewelsalemBridal is a great way to match your wedding colour scheme in a subtle way. It would go so well with this artificial wedding bouquet from CuriousFloralCrafts. Coral and aqua themed stationery by ALittleTreasure will work well with your wedding colours, and this beautiful heart shaped confetti from LucyBirdy will look gorgeous in your wedding pictures, or scattered on the reception tables.
Fuchsia and White
Pink is a popular wedding colour, although not so much with grooms! See if you can persuade him into a pretty pink day by opting to use a vibrant shade of fuchsia mixed with bright white.
Incorporating your colour scheme into your wedding desserts is a fun — and delicious — way to add a bright pop of colour to your wedding reception. We love this vibrant dessert table and pretty pink cake pops. Dress your bridesmaids in fuchsia gowns, like this one from Belsoie, and match them by carrying a bouquet of hot pink blooms. Add a ribbon garland from Karavakishopcrafts, and hang hot pink and white pompoms from HandDyedPoms from the ceiling.
These invitations from Appleberryink include fuchsia pink in a subtle and stylish way — giving your guests a hint of what’s to come. Finally, decorate your cake with these beautiful heart cake toppers in ‘radiant orchid’ from ThePathLessTraveled.
