After a long, cold, dreary winter, people always seem to be ready for a change in the weather. The spring is a time of renewal, with tons of flowering plants, while the summer is a time of vibrancy that is full of life.

This is why many weddings are scheduled during these times. Spring and summer make for a colorful backdrop to a ceremony. Brides often set their color schemes to match with the color of the season.

Here are some colors you may ask your bridesmaids to wear in order to bring the beautiful colors of spring and summer into your wedding ceremony.

Spring

Neutral browns – The brown pallet may not seem like a bright and cheerful color, but this is an excellent alternative to wearing a black dress for your bridesmaids. (Black is no longer taboo for bridesmaids, but some brides are still uncomfortable with it.) This gives your brides a color that looks great on just about everyone, and can be paired with other spring color accents, like yellow flowers or sashes. Colors include coffee, mocha, toffee, and truffle.

Blues and greens – Light blues and light greens positively scream spring. These classy traditional colors work wonderfully in either a formal church wedding or a non-traditional outdoor wedding. Keep the colors light, such as seafoam, mint, or baby blue, as darker blues and greens are better for fall weddings.

Purple – Almost every shade of purple is perfect for a spring wedding. Deep purples are perfect for traditional Christian weddings around Easter, as purple is a color associated with this holiday. Purple is also a color associated with royalty, and your bridesmaids will make a great statement in this regal color.

 

Summer

Coral – Especially for beach weddings, cool coral is a wonderful color for those hot summer nights. Coral can be matched with baby blues to give a vibrant spectrum.

Pinks and reds – Although red dresses for your bridesmaids may be a bit over the top, they don’t have to wear a shocking red color. Deep reds are great for formal weddings, while the pink spectrum is great for any occasion.

Sunset colors – The warm colors of a summer sunset is perfect for your bridesmaids. Dusky purples and warm oranges will go great in a summer wedding.

Remember that no matter what color you choose, make sure you consider the color tones that look great on all of your bridesmaids. When your bridesmaids look great, so do you. (Don’t think that if they don’t look their best, it’ll make you look better.) If two of your attendants are springs and one is a winter, it’s best to go with a neutral color.
