When it comes to deciding on the look and feel of your wedding day, one of the best places to start is with your colour palette. Turn to the season in which your wedding is taking place for inspiration. With Queensland being famous for its long, hot days, many couples choose to celebrate their special day in the beautiful summer months.

With a summer wedding, you can have a lot of fun with your colour palate. Draw your inspiration from beautiful ocean blues like Caribbean blue and aqua or the lovely bright combination of fresh pinks and yellow. If you prefer to stick to more muted tones, introduce shades of breezy summer nights with tones of champagne, sky blue and seafoam.

Look through colour swatches and find colours that represent you and your partner’s personalities and styles. You can then start incorporating this colour scheme into details of your wedding day, from your bridesmaids’ dresses at the ceremony to the floral arrangements for your reception. Read on for some popular summer wedding colour schemes below.


Ocean Blues

Blues are always a popular summer colour for Australian weddings, conveying our love of the ocean and bringing a relaxed, tranquil atmosphere to the venue.

You can go with a combination of light aqua hues for a lovely afternoon summer wedding, or bring in some darker royal blue for an evening celebration. Silver will be a perfect complement to this refined and calm colour palette.

Pinks and Yellow

Summer in Queensland is all about bright sunny days and yellow is the perfect colour to carry this fresh, positive vibe into your wedding day. Yellow looks great when paired with shades of pink, creating a fun and feminine atmosphere.

If your bridesmaids are wearing pink tones, consider sunshine yellow flower bouquets as a complementary colour. Yellow and pink flowers make for vibrant, colourful centrepieces, bringing summer sun into your reception.

Muted Summer Tones of Champagne and Sky Blue

For brides who prefer a more muted colour palette, consider Summer tones of soft sky blue, seafoam and creamy champagnes. This colour scheme works really well for beachfront or seaside weddings, looking both classic and elegant all day and night.
