Summer is here (hitting Missouri with full force). And we are feeling those warm, bright summer hues. Tropical sunset, anyone?! Bring on the peaches, fuchsias and oranges for a fun, festive wedding day.

Summer Bouquet and Color Palette

Bouquet Inspiration

For a this sunset-inspired bouquet, David Austin “Kate” roses are a must. These fuchsia roses are so romantic, and the color makes a bold statement against peach spray roses and “Blushing Bride” phlox. Italian ruscus and eucalyptus provide a great structure and texture to the bouquet, while orange dahlias add additional warmth to the mix. The unique pincushion flower introduces a tropical flair, as well as amazing texture, and the bright pink Matsumoto asters add variety in flower-size, and one last punch of pink throughout the bouquet.

Wedding Detail Inspiration

Styling your bridesmaids in lighter peach dresses will allow their bouquets to stand out in photos and as they walk down the aisle. Choosing a peachy dress color rather than the louder colors in this palette also allows you to feature the brighter pinks and oranges without overwhelming the eyeballs of your gals and guests. We love these mix-and-match separates from Revelry in Blushing Peach.

Peach Bridesmaid Dresses

Much like the bridesmaid dresses, we suggest going for a neutral, understated cake with beautiful pops of bright colors incorporated via flowers and/or wedding toppers.

Infusing your color palette into the invitations is a great way to give your guests a glimpse of what to expect on your wedding day. These ombré fuchsia to orange invitations are a fun choice to set the tone for your big day!

Cake and Invitation

A summer wedding screams for tropical drinks. Try this recipe for a Pineapple Mango Rum Punch. We are always on board for a drink that look like a summer sunset! Dress up your bar with a festive tassel garland and playful napkins in your fuchsia and orange wedding colors..

Does a bold tropical color palette strike your fancy? We hope you’re seeing visions of wedded bliss in these sunset-inspired fuchsia and orange hues.
