In this post we are looking at the use of seasonal wedding colours for your invitations, ceremony, reception and other elements of your special day. Specific times of year give you the chance to use traditional colours and make the most of your surroundings. For example winter can be more simple, spring is fresh, autumn is earthy and summer is bright and happy. Choosing the time of year for your wedding is not just about your favourite weather as costs can change dramatically depending on demand for venues and services. While winter is a little chillier, it is easier to find venues due to spring being the most popular time of year to have weddings – and it will cost a lot less!
While most colours can be used throughout the year, here are some ideas for specific seasons:
Winter Wedding Colours
Blues – soft blues can work really well for the colder weather as inspired that wonderful deep sky blue you only get in winter.
Browns – an earthy brown will work well in winter when the trees have lost their leaves and vegetation is at a minimum.
Black – a simple palette can be made using predominately white with touches of black for some beautiful contrast.
Spring Wedding Colours
Yellow – with flowers blooming spring is a time of growth and yellow is a bright warm colour perfect for this season.
Green – Sticking to the same theme, greens will match well with many outdoor locations and represent renewal.
Think Bright – bright colours work well in spring and summer as everyone is feeling more energised!
Autumn Wedding Colours
Browns – like winter, browns work well in Autumn when the leaves are changing.
Orange – a very bold wedding colour choice but will work well in softer tones if you have the chance to get married in autumn.
Think Soft – soft colours are great for autumn as you will be surrounded by the deep browns and oranges of the season.
Summer Wedding Colours
Yellow – a bright yellow is a perfect touch of sunshine for your summer wedding day!
Bright and Bold – anything bright and bold with your traditional white will look amazing in summer!
This is just a small selection of seasonal options for your wedding invitations and other elements such as bridesmaids dresses and flowers.
