5 Color Combos For Every Type of Summer Wedding
Anthuriums are the next big thing in flowers. They are a natural fit for bohemian or beach wedding arrangements, but you can also pair them with traditional blooms, such as roses and Lisianthus for a classic-meets-modern look, says Chertoff.
And when it comes to colors, "A beach wedding can be bright and colorful. Mix navy and pink (the navy is the neutral and pink adds a pop of color) or go all out for a bright palette of oranges and fuchsias," says Chertoff. "We love bright pinks and corals coupled with yellows, neutrals and of course, lots of greenery," she adds.
Boho Chic Wedding
"A rustic or boho chic wedding can include muted apricot and yellow hues," suggests Chertoff. Once you pick your anchoring sunny shade, add shine. "Have an accent color in a metallic, such as a copper or bronze, which is more muted than a yellow gold, while still adding some shimmer to the wedding’s details."
This year, that's an especially popular approach, says Chertoff. "We're expecting to see flowers that showcase the softer side of these bright sunshine colors." So if you love blush or salmon pink, why not try a similar but more modern apricot orange instead? "It's a peachy hue that feels like a pastel but also packs a punch. Butter yellow is inviting and unexpected, not to mention that it's like a dose of instant happiness for your decor."
"Take your inspiration from the setting with a purple and green wedding color palette. Pair a bright green with royal purple for a striking color combo," Chertoff suggests. "Succulents and moss add a whimsical touch to vineyard weddings and work wonders as the green elements alongside bright hues. Specifically, succulents are great in the summer, as they don’t need much water, and they’re great in humidity."
Classic Country Club Wedding
"For a timeless setting pick a pastel palette. White or ivory with pale pink accents and gray as a neutral is a classic that will never go out of style," says Chertoff. For your blooms, go with peonies, garden roses, and hydrangeas in soft pink, blush, and white.
Since Pantone's color of the year for 2018 is Ultra Violet, Chertoff expects to see a lot of flowers in deep purple tones, like burgundy and plum. Those dramatic tones work perfectly for an unexpected vintage look, she says. "Pick a romantic burgundy hue and pair it with a bright pink. You can add greenery to your bouquet and centerpieces as a neutral to make the blooms really pop."
Or pair purples with abundant greenery and nature-inspired accents, like succulents, pampas grass, curly willow, and even feathers. "Add flowers in lighter purple and pink shades, such as mauve and nostalgia rose, to create an arrangement that feels dramatic, edgy, and a little bit mysterious."
