We all know that the classic colors of a wedding are largely black and white, right? The bride's gown and the groom's tux set the stage. But then you are free to add a palette that complements who you are and your day.
What colors do you love? What is the theme of your wedding? Some themes - New Year's, The Gilded Age, and The Roaring 20s for example, call for the addition of gold and bronze and you're halfway there in terms of palette.
But what about summer? June palettes aren't just about the summer garden. They are about an elegant mix of colors. Check out the options below if you are planning your 2023 wedding!
Pale blue, dove gray, and silver all mix perfectly with whites, creams and fresh greenery to set the tone that says summer and elegance whether you're getting married at the beach or in the mountains, or somewhere more urban. Keeping it monochromatic is sleek and incredibly sophisticated.
Another palette combo we love focuses on gold. Gold sheen in bridesmaids gowns - even the pink ones! - as well as gold elements around the alter or at the reception all work and complement any other textures, outdoor atmosphere or other elements. Gold is like denim for the most part - it goes with everything! And boy does it shine!
Dusty rose and blue are a perfect pair and continue to be popular. These two work well together, but are wonderful secondary colors with other elements as well. If you like a particular color, but are having a hard time making it The Star - consider finding a single place to showcase it - like in floral arrangements, place cards or decor.
June weddings are classic, and brides often gravitate to the spring/June palette because it's elegant, classic, invites the season into the occasion, and is just so unbelievably gorgeous. Think blush, pink, cream, crystal white, greens of all shades, and lots of texture. Add candles of all heights, a variety of floral arrangements, succulents, sheer and robust linens, complementing glassware and tableware and you're on your way.
Finally, don't be afraid to go bold. Weddings attract softer palettes, but they do not have to! If you like orange, create a space with orange lanterns, cocktails napkins and a signature drink with tangerine tones for your guests. Below are some absolutely gorgeous color ways for you to consider for your June wedding.
