A Rainbow of Wedding Colors

Eleise Theuer Photography

Summer is a great time of year to have a bright, colorful wedding! There are fun ways to incorporate color into your wedding decor. You can opt for an entire rainbow of colors, or just choose one or two bright colors. You can make your entire wedding a color bomb or just use it in subtle ways. Pops of color can make an even bigger impact when you have a neutral space like a beautiful white tent!

Colorful Florals

Black Iris Floral Events

Flowers are an easy way to incorporate lots of beautiful color into your wedding. You can choose a few colors to use as a centerpiece like the gorgeous tablescape above. You could even create an ombre affect with various shades of the same color. A great way to save on florals is to choose flowers that are in season and one perk of having a summer wedding is the abundance of floral choices. 

Some of our favorite florists include:
Creative Impressions Photography Studio, Floral design by Vivid Expressions LLC

Bringing Color to Your Bridal Party

If you want a bright, colorful wedding, bridesmaids dresses are the perfect way to bring in color! Pair the colorful gowns with coordinating flowers or with neutral florals to let the gowns be the focus. The bride can bring the color of the gowns into her own bridal bouquet. 

Here are some of our favorite salons to get the perfect bridesmaid dresses:

A Colorful Styled Shoot

One of our favorite wedding coordinators, Inspired Events by Kelly, planned a beautiful and colorful styled shoot and it's still one of our favorites. Every place setting had a different color napkin and the long banquet style table had a colorful tablecloth with magical florals and branches above. The cake was equally as whimsical and fun, suspended from the ceiling and full of color and texture. For the full list of vendors scroll to the bottom!
