Late Summer Sun – Romantic Wedding Inspiration in Shades of Dusky Yellow & Pink
For today’s wedding inspiration board I was inspired by the colour picks recently released by Pantone, and in particular the gorgeous golden yellow you may remember Oak Buff. A stunning shade inspired by nature and with a distinctly vintage feel I knew, as soon as I saw it, it would look so elegant mixed with grey and a dusky pink….. and I was right!
Yellow is such a summery colour, but with its dash of gold and mustard this yellow is more suited to the very end of Summer. As the leaves start to turn and the sun sits lower in the sky, but evenings are still long and warm….this colour palette would be just perfect for a glorious outdoor wedding making the most of the last heady days of Summer!
Choose somewhere like a vineyard or country estate and allow the beauty in nature to be your decor. Keep centrepieces low and trailing but add coloured glassware to your tablescape for a relaxed hint of luxury. Farmhouse style wooden tables for the reception and vintage pews for your ceremony seating would add some elegant rustic charm. And to save a few pennies, simply add some lush green foliage to bouquets, boutonnieres and centrepieces; and capture Summer in a bottle with DIY Olive Oil (or honey) for favours your guests will enjoy long after the big day.

And this is a colour palette your groom & groomsmen will love as much as you do, with a light grey suit the perfect choice to keep them cool in the heat of the sun! It’s also relaxed enough for them to wear again after the wedding, but make it a 3 piece suit and it won’t lack formal elegance on the day.
