Pretty Spring & Summer Colors
April 27, 2007

I get so many requests for help in choosing color seems like so many soon-to-be's have a hard time bringing colors together that work and that make sense aesthetically. For example, you may love orange and chocolate brown, but when brought together, you realize that they have a close resemblance to candy corn at Halloween.

So today, I wanted to start a series of posts that I am going to do on choosing color palettes for your wedding. I absolutely love the two that I have chosen for today and think that they are perfect for a Spring or Summer wedding .

First is Navy, Yellow and White...

This color combo is your quintessential summer palette...perfect for a beachy wedding in Miami, at the Cape or Nantucket. I really like using preppy colors in a super sophisticated way, so if you choose a look like this, make sure to infuse elements with a modern feel so as not to seem so themed.

The second palette that I am LOVING is done with various shades of bright pink...

These colors are just perfect for a fun, Spring or Summer garden wedding. I love that there is such a contrast between the pinks and the natural elements of an outdoor wedding. Plus, the white of the gown really pops which is never a bad thing!

What are your current favorite color palettes? I would love to hear from you!
