Summer Wedding Colors: Yellow!

Yellow is the new favorite color for summer weddings.  Yellow is such a happy color and what couldn’t be a more happy occasion than a wedding?  Yellow is great by itself but also a wonderful complimentary color.  Pair it with almost any other color in the color spectrum and you have the perfect wedding colors  for summer.  I have listed some of the hottest color combinations that include yellow for summer 2012.

Yellow and teal is one of the newest pairings and it so surprisingly beautiful together.  It reminds me of a nautical themed wedding but with a new modern twist by using teal instead of navy.

Another beautiful color combination is yellow and gray.  Using gray and yellow as your wedding colors gives off a modern and sophisticated feel. Many brides only want to use yellow for an afternoon wedding but pairing it with gray is a perfect color pairing for an evening wedding as well as an afternoon wedding.

If you like yellow and gray for an evening wedding, you may love yellow and black.   Done correctly black at a wedding will always give a formal feel but pairing it with yellow softens the black and gives it a lighter summer feel.  If you decide to use yellow and black I would suggest pairing it with a patterned black damask or print to give it some texture and depth.

I can not forget to include yellow and green. This is such a classic pairing and is a beautiful match for an outside wedding.  Using yellow and green will give off a very organic and earthy feel to the event. Using fruit like lemons and limes to decorate your guest tables is also a great way to save a little money on centerpieces…especially if you create the centerpieces yourself!

I hope you have like all the yellow inspired weddings!  Are you having a yellow wedding?  We would love to hear what you think of these color combinations!

Happy Planning!
