Colour Me In: Summer Colours for 2016 Nuptials

Summer’s still not quite sure whether it’s here or not... but the Summer wedding season marches on nonetheless! Read on for Summer nuptial colour scheme ideas from the Tulle and Chantilly blog.

Something Borrowed

It’s not just a good colour for the famous saying – something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue... it’s ideal for a wedding theme too! From a light pastel to sky blue to vibrant turquoise and deep navy – the scope for incorporating “blue” into your wedding is actually huge. Earrings, icing on the cake, bridesmaids dresses and shoes can all compliment this trend beautifully. It’s clean, crisp and of course, the perfect background at every turn for the stunning white wedding dress!

A Rose by Any Other Name

It’s not just the ultimate floral romantic symbol, it’s a great and placid colour for your colour scheme. Of course you can use the flower to perfection (though this may make your costs spiral somewhat!) but rose coloured ribbons, centrepieces, bouquets, petals and balloons can all enhance a rose coloured theme.

A Wealth of Green

We’re not talking monetary wealth... emotional and spiritual wealth is where it’s at! And on your wedding day this should be in plenty. Mint cakes, mint coloured dresses, mint green corsages and minty coloured cocktails can all make for a pretty and perfectly balanced colour scheme.

Purple Perfection

The range of colours and hues available to you by choosing purple as your colour scheme are vast. From deep and regal maroons to light and flighty violets – this colour has huge scope. It can also be a lovely colour for your husband to accessorise his suit with on the day too.

Shades of Grey

We’re a million miles away from the movie. But this colour – although sounding dull – can exude some fabulous drama and glamour when used right. Dramatic cake tops, lightly glittered table cloths and stunning slate grey invitations can make this colour scheme one to remember for all the right reasons.

Remember – all the above colours will compliment your wedding dress in EVERY photo too – they’re a win win! And you can top off your look with some of our wedding umbrellas that come in a multitude of colours to compliment every theme.
