SEASONAL WEDDING STYLES BY COLOR

Aside from blended styles for weddings, there is also the factor of the season to consider. And most often, this is where color choice is influenced by what time of year your wedding will be held. You can go with the typical hues for the season, or pull a surprise and opt for an unexpected color palette! We illustrate both color approaches in the examples that follow.
