Summer Garden & Sunshine – Chic Garden Wedding Inspiration in Yellow & Grey
I don’t think any colour says Summer quite like yellow! Warm and vibrant, it evokes the glow of the sun and long hazy days of Summer. Yet this zesty shade is often overlooked when it comes to weddings, especially vintage weddings. But with today’s inspiration board I wanted to show that it has a softer side, and can be timeless, as well as refined and oh so romantic. Especially when paired with a neutral like this lovely cool grey….

Whilst I had Summer in mind when creating this inspiration board, the soft shades of yellow and grey would of course look just as lovely for Spring I think. And being a garden setting, you have a choice of venues from an historic house with extensive grounds to your own backyard, this is a look and theme that would work equally well in either.
The decor and styling is as understated as the color palette. Keep it simple with seasonal flowers in soft shades of ivory and yellow, and lots of natural materials such as wood and linen. I love the idea of a pergola or summer house for the ceremony, but a floral arch would create just as beautiful a backdrop. With an outdoor Summer wedding, wherever you’re having it, just be sure to spend a little extra time thinking of your guests, and their comfort: so consider parasols and fans for the ceremony, and shawls or blankets for the cooler evening of the reception.
So perfect for Summer, don’t you think? If you’re not a yellow girl (I know I never used to be!), or if its early days in your wedding planning process and you want to see more wedding colours and inspiration boards perfect for Summer look no further because you will find lots in CVB’s archives!
