Wedding season is near and we are always excited to see and utilize new ways of incorporating seasonal color trends into a bride and groom’s big day. If you are planning on having a Spring or Summer wedding, that doesn’t mean you have to use Spring/Summer colors. It is not uncommon for couples to incorporate darker, fall colors into a wedding in June or add dramatic pops of their favorite colors in any season. Our wedding guru extraordinaire, Cheryl Fleming, has some expert advice on seasonal color trends and how to incorporate nontraditional colors in your wedding.
Blush and Nude
You can never go wrong with these two colors. They are classic and elegant and provide a neutral foundation to add other colors to the mix. When you start with a neutral color, it gives you freedom to incorporate your favorite color palette no matter what season it is.
Metallics are Hot Hot Hot!
Metallics have been in vogue for the last couple of years and are still going strong. Silvers, golds, and rose golds are hot and we see them used more and more. They are classy, fun and can work for any time of year.
A way to add to your color scheme is with cocktails. Many couples will have His and Her cocktails that are specifically created to contain a certain flavor profile and be a certain color. For example, we catered a wedding where the bride and groom were alumni of Stanford and Berkeley. Our mixologists created drinks with flavors that matched the bride and groom’s tastes, and used their favorite colors so one drink was Stanford red and the other was Cal blue. This is a unique way of tying your colors together or incorporating your favorite color into the mix.
Don’t Forget the Garnish
Festive and unique straws in different colors and patterns are currently very popular and can either add a pop of color to your wedding palette or match your color scheme. Festive picks for garnishes are a way of working in natural materials like wood and bamboo which are also very popular wedding elements, not just for bringing nature into the décor but for the neutral colors as well.
