Planning a summer wedding or event? Selecting a soft summer color palette is one of the first things you’ll need to tick off your checklist. Your color palette will inspire nearly every aspect of your party, from your invitations to your bridesmaids dresses!

When you get the right color scheme for your wedding, it gives your wedding that absolutely perfect feel. It's not just gorgeous, but it's going to suit your personality as well. While some people go for bright and bold color palettes, we love a softer approach to incorporating summer colors into your wedding. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite soft summer wedding colors for you to create your palette with. Time to get inspired!

1. Baby Blue

Baby blue is the perfect focal color for a soft and light color palette. This hue will give a fresh feel to your summer wedding, making it perfect for beach or outdoor celebrations. Why not choose it as the main color for your bridesmaids dresses, and have accents of baby blue in your florals? Or if you’re feeling daring, baby blue groomsmen suits! The best colors to pair with this shade would be pinks, neutrals and metallic, as it’s a strong color on its own.

2. Dusty Rose

If bright pinks are a little too bold for your soft summer wedding color palette, why not consider a dusty rose? This much more muted pink color has risen in popularity over the past few years, and makes for a romantic statement. The obvious way to incorporate this color is well, with roses – think about mixing in lighter pale pinks and dark greens for a complimentary bouquet. It’s also a great color to use in your wedding décor, and your bridesmaids dresses.

3. Rose Gold

Rose gold is the perfect focal color if you’re looking to inject a little glamour into your wedding palette. The pinky hues make it feminine and soft, but with a metallic edge to add a little shimmer! Go all out with rose gold sequined accessories such as your shoes or jewelry, or incorporate the color into your table settings – it’s the perfect shade to compliment rustic wedding venues.

4. Lilac

Cool lilac can give your wedding a calm and relaxed vibe, and perfectly creates a romantic air. Great accents for this color could be metallic silvers, or pair with darker purples for a refined effect. Soft greens work best when pairing this color in your florals, but we love it as-is for bridesmaids dresses, as it’s perfect for all skin shades.

5. Mint Green

Often just used as an accent color – in fact, mint green would compliment any other on this list beautifully – pastel green is a great alternative focal point for your wedding color palette. This color gives a light and airy feel, and will help bring brightness to your day. Think light green plants and succulents instead of bolder floral centerpieces, paired with dusty pinks and sea greens for beautifully ethereal color palette.
