One upside to getting caught up in the color scheme of your big day is learning which hues coordinate, which clash, and which contrast well with one another. Knowing in which season you’re going to be wed might give you some guidance in choosing the tones that traditionally “go” with a certain time of the year, but what about the less obvious choices? When you think of a summer wedding, you often think of bright and radiant colors: yellows, pinks, and whites. However, selecting a contrasting color for your sunny nuptials may set you apart from the events around your date. Blue décor can help give you that edge.

Though one may already associate this dreamy tone with beach weddings – to match the ocean – summer vows are far more than just seaside affairs. Add azure detailing into your ceremony or reception to soften the harshness of the sun and give the day an ethereal glow. Stuck on what to incorporate? Scroll through the pictures below featuring examples from real weddings to get ideas. Click on each snapshot to get further inspiration!
