Summer outdoor weddings call for gorgeous floral arches and decadent tablescapes.
A blissful bold colour palette
Whilst we love a summer pastel palette, we also adore the strong pops of a summer sorbet palette. Tangy raspberry, sour lemon, sweet orange with hints of icy blue bring out the warmth of the summer sun and make a fabulous, rich palette.
We’ve chosen some of our favourite summer sorbet looks for a rainbow of wedding inspiration.
Mixing brilliant, strong colours with lush greenery makes a beautiful display. Summer outdoor weddings call for gorgeous floral arches and decadent tablescapes. Make your background colour white, and the colours will stand strong.
You can really have fun with a sorbet palette. Be creative with bright lollipops and sugar sweet drinks. Maybe a cocktail station or just some coloured glassware. And why not substitute a floral wall for a pretty paper wreath wall instead?! At least the flowers won’t droop in the sun!
This is the place you introduce your guests to your chosen palette – so make it a good first impression! Keep the base white and add your colour in unstructured brush strokes or a splash of florals. So pretty, without being overwhelming.
There are so many options for your sorbet palette cake design. Go pure white and decorate with real flowers, or choose a coloured cake and really wow your guests. Alternatively, naked cakes are still on trend (and delicious) – decorate with your palette – raspberry, lemon, orange…
Splash some colour onto your wedding dress! Well, maybe not literally… If you’ve chosen a white or ivory dress, a zing of colour will be a beautiful addition as you walk down the aisle. Whether a garden, chapel or castle, a bright bouquet is such a happy creation!
As beautiful as bright ballgowns are, most brides settle for a traditional white colour for their dress. But if you’re feeling brave, or are just VERY committed to your palette, why not add a feature back to your dress, accessorise with shoes, or use your bridesmaids to carry your colour through?!
Summer sorbet is such a gorgeously bright choice for a colour palette. We adore the rich hues and added sunshine (that might be needed for a summer wedding in the UK!). If you’re looking for more colour inspiration, head over to our palettes page.
