When planning your wedding one of the central things a bride must decide on is the color palette for her wedding. Pretty much all design decisions revolve around the colors you choose: the flowers, the bridesmaid gowns, the table decorations, etc. While you're free to choose your wedding based off of the season, each season has its own natural color palettes, and it makes sense to choose some complimentary colors to match your surroundings.
Winter: For winter I always recommend lighter softer colors. Light blues, whites, and gray tones are all great options for the season. Another one of my favorites for this time of year is anything shimmery. This can of course go for any time of the year, but I just love the way shimmering silver or champagne gold bridesmaids dresses and decorations look against the snowy white backdrops for this time of year.
Spring: For spring I am all about the pastel shades. Mix up your blushes with baby blues and whites or maybe a beautiful lilac color matched with mint or teal. Natural colors and tones are also beautiful this time of year. The wonderful thing about this season is that you can mix light colors with darker colors or keep everything light and airy with neutral colors to balance everything out.
Summer: Now summer is when I say you go for the bright and bold colors. Your pinks, yellows, and vibrant blues are all ready to come out and play. Match those with nudes and champagne colors and you've got a wedding dress color scheme that your guests are sure to notice and love.
Fall: Lastly, for fall I say keep bold colors, but go for your darker shades this time of year. Lots of dark olive greens, paired with reds, oranges and dark plums are the perfect shades for the season. I'm telling you, if you look up the color oxblood online you will fall in love! Sounds like a weird color but it's a deep and rich tone, which is exactly what fall calls for.
Whether your wedding is inside or out, these seasonal color palettes are a great starting point for planning out your wedding's aesthetic. Look online to find some inspiration for how you can mix and match colors to fit the style and feel of your wedding. Whatever you choose, I can guarantee it will look great with your dream Pnina Tornai wedding dress!
