Late Summer Wedding Colors


Late summer typically is considered mid-August until the start of fall. Complement your late-summer wedding by picking color schemes that fit the time of year in which you're getting married. Colors such as sunflower pay tribute to summertime while you still have the fall season you can tap into with more rustic colors. Your decorations and your clothing should fall into your scheme to make for a dream wedding.

Sunflower Yellow

  • Sunflowers have a very warming color and the flowers themselves can be a part of this theme. These schemes are a way to bid farewell to summer. Use mini-sunflowers in your bouquet and centerpieces to help bring the color out. Upgrade your single color theme to an eye-pleasing multicolor theme with deep brown accents, which add sophistication, or throw in red and white in a checker pattern for a picnic feel.

Beach Theme

  • Beaches are a favorite place of many people, so bringing that feeling to your late-summer wedding day can prove to be a huge success. The colors for this theme are the colors of the beach: sand, aqua or sky blue, and white. The blues and white are best for dress colors, but the rest of the decorations are fair game with the whole scheme. These colors say goodbye to summer on a great note.

Usher in Autumn

  • Don't just say goodbye to summer: Say hello to autumn. If you're wedding in the very late summer, you can have a semi-autumn wedding. Take a regular garden theme with green and brown that would fit any late-summer wedding, but throw in a hint of the season that's around the corner. Expand your garden scheme to include lighter browns and burnt yellows and reds for a subtle fall feel. Limit these colors to the centerpieces, bouquet and a few decorations; don't let them overpower your garden theme.

Sage Green and Purple

  • Sage green and a muted purple can give a serene wildflower feel to you and your guests. This color palette of dusty purple and sage green is the perfect balance between the brightness of summer and the darker fall hues, thus making it an attractive color scheme for late-summer weddings. With this color scheme, work your wildflowers into your bouquet and centerpieces.
