Summer Color Trend: Bright Colors and Relaxed Neutrals

Layer colors like pink, yellow and orange for a citrus-inspired color palette that’s super-fresh for summer. The key to making your color palette look modern and new is to use shades in unexpected ways, like watercolor-style yellow and orange invitations, ombré gradients or even color blocking.

Also big? Toning down the color palette and adding neutrals and natural greenery is another look that’s popular this season. With all of the natural beauty that summer has to offer, it’s no wonder more and more couples will focus on the setting instead of colors for their wedding day.
