Go for a lighter version of black and white as you contrast a warm lemon yellow with a cool pewter grey; a pale ice yellow with a burnt charcoal grey or a pastel yellow with a steel grey. Dress your tables and chairs in floor length yellow cotton table linens with a grey tulle sash wrapped around the chair back tied into a bow. Metal plate chargers hold yellow plates and napkins encircled with metal accents. A floral fan centerpiece rests in the middle of the table overflowing with daisies, marigolds, daphodils, craspedias, forsythias or the oncidium orchids. Other possible display containers include pewter urns, metallic-grey bowls or ceramic grey vases.
Bring a tropical feel to your wedding -with a profusion of color- as you select the hues of a Miami sunrise for your summer wedding colors. Bright lemon and orange flowers overflow in a tall vase filled with lemons slices which contracts nicely against the cooler tones of an apple green table linen. Hot pink roses nestle along the base of the vase, not quite hidden within the bright orange and yellow tropical flowers, such as gardenias, plumerias, orchids or birds of paradise. Turquoise chargers and napkins heat up the table, and designate place settings, while hot salsa music plays in the air.
Champagne and Gold
Create a rich and elegant design with the warmth of champagne and the sparkle of gold as your summer wedding colors. Style your hair in an updo with gold combs or attach a gold tiara crown to your champagne veil. A champagne gown is accented with a train of glistening, spun-gold threaded gossamer. Tailor the reception table with champagne table linens with gold accent buttons down the sides of the corner and on covered chair backs. A band of gold rims the crystal flutes, crystal goblets and china dishes. A gold tone ice bucket becomes the centerpiece as it holds a magnum of champagne surrounded by a cluster of soft candle lights.
Cream and Green
Design a fresh and airy combination fit for a garden or outdoor wedding with the summer wedding colors of cream and bright apple green. Choose a deep forest green or a sage green if you prefer a more dramatic look. Slip into a cream bridal gown and carry an arm presentation bouquet with creamy white tulips tied with green ribbons. Dress the groom and his men in a cream colored tuxedo jacket with a crisp apple green and cream striped tie. A cream lace table cloth swags over an apple -green table linen, with cream satin bows go on the chair backs. Add a spring of fresh greenery to the middle of the bow. Arrange the centerpiece with white tulips and green cymbidium orchids,
