Summer weddings often mean gorgeous outdoor receptions that take full advantage of the longer days and warmer nights. The great thing about outdoor wedding celebrations is the amount of creative liberty you have with the decor and setup — the outdoors are a perfect backdrop for you to add whatever decorative flair you’d like for your big day.

A lighter color palette is the perfect way to add an air of understated elegance to any celebration. Brides looking to create a serenely stunning ambiance can look to pastels and lighter color shades for a gorgeously relaxed and romantic vibe — perfect for warm weather weddings this summer!

One of our favorite combinations? Mint green and light cream. The lighter shade of green keeps a hint of color while the neutral-toned cream provides a subtle but stunning contrast — worried that the relaxed color scheme will appear dull? Add some sparkle! Flashes of gold are all you need to take this soothing color scheme to the next level of glam.
