The Wedding Palette – For the “Bright” Hearted

With summer practically here, we’re tossing out our light pinks and blues and bringing in some very loud (and lovely) summer color palettes – the brights! Since we couldn’t pick just one color palette, we wanted to inspire brides to work with a very full palette of very bright colors… magentas, tangerines, deep purples and mustard yellows! Sound good together?  Probably not… but trust me, they work!

Best used for summer and outdoor weddings, brights can and should be mixed together as long as they don’t all overpower each other! My favorite way to combine all of these fun colors is to take one theme (like these dessert cupcakes and use all different colored frosting! They end up perfectly complementing each other!). Another example? The bridesmaids dresses! In my opinion this is a very underused idea..look at how great different colored dresses blend together (and each bridesmaid gets to pick her own color)! For other ways to incorporate the brights… how about a centerpiece filled with all of the different colors (see below), or a table setting with a bit of everything (turquoise plates, magenta centerpieces and orange pops here and there). If you still don’t believe me about the blending of the brights…check out these amazing pictures, or better yet, try it yourself!
