Color in Weddings

June is the month associated with weddings. Do you remember this old song sung by perky Doris Day, and others?

By the light of the silvery moon
I want to spoon
To my honey, I'll croon love's tune
Honey moon, keep a-shinin' in June
Your silvery beams will bring love's dreams
We'll be cuddlin' soon
By the silvery moon

The following suggestions for wedding party attire should certainly add a jolt of color to the nuptials. They are suggested by Justine Lorelle Blanchard from MCT News Service


"A modern bride needs a wedding color combo that can keep up. offers these 10 palette ideas for a color scheme that's ahead of the curve.
Fuchsia + Eggplant
Here's a girlie color palette that isn't too sweet. The bright fuchsia gets just the right touch of elegance paired with the more muted deep purple.
Sunshine + Aqua
Perfect for modern spring weddings, this cheerful combo works just as well on the beach as it does in a garden. Play up the light blue green in details like signs, linens or bridesmaid dresses; bring in the yellow in the flowers.
Red + White + Black
The best part about this palette is its versatility. It can be formal with tall, topiary-style centerpieces and artsy lanterns, or feel more relaxed with '50s-inspired touches like diner eats and photo booths.
Yellow + Slate Gray
Plan a summer wedding in the city with this chic combo. The colors can easily inspire vintage patterns, delicate fabrics and lush flowers that soften the gray and add warmth.
Cherry Red + Aqua
Perfect for an outdoor summer wedding, stick to the aqua for your linens and table decor, and dress your bridesmaids in deep red for a bold, retro-inspired look.
Navy + Lime
This sleek statement is ideal for a modern urban wedding. The navy adds sophistication, while the lime keeps it from being too serious. Pair the colors with white accents.
Pink + Grass Green
Fresh and pretty, this contemporary palette can bring the feeling of an outdoor wedding indoors.
Clementine + Sour-Apple
Don't worry; this combo isn't as tart as it sounds. Bright greens (think: hypericum berries and hydrangeas) mix perfectly with vivid orange (try citrus-colored roses and bridesmaid dresses).
Purple + Lavender + Silver
For a cool mix of masculine and feminine shades, pair a soft-purple palette with striking pewter details. Give the look depth with complex patterns and deluxe materials like silk and satin.
Turquoise + Orange + Lemon
For fun-loving brides and grooms, it's a great way to keep the reception playful without having color overload."
