What colours are popular for June weddings?

Popular wedding colours will vary from year to year, but how colours are chosen for each month can be consistent. Decide what kind of wedding you want, where you want it and what the weather will be like. Look at bridal magazines to figure out what will be popular in the coming year, and choose colours that suit you and the season.

Flower colours

One way couples can choose their wedding colours is by the flowers that are in season at that time of year. This will vary from location to location but in June some flowers that are available are Baby's Breath, Calla Lilies, Delphiniums, Gladiolas, Hydrangea and Iris. These flowers would go nicely with weddings that have a blue, purple, lavender or white theme.

June theme weddings

A popular idea when wedding planning is to create a theme for the event and with June being on the cusp of spring and summer, many themes are possible. Themes will vary depending on the climate you live in -- if June is more a spring or more a summer month -- and where you plan on having the wedding. A poolside theme can have bright, tropical colours with lots of blues and whites. A garden theme can have pinks and greens. If June is hot and dry, you may consider a Spanish theme with bright oranges, greens and fuchsia.

Annual trends

Popular wedding colours will vary from year to year. You can check out wedding magazines and guides to see what will be popular in the coming year, so you can stay on top of the trends. In 2010, colours for the spring and summer months were turquoise, platinum, coral, pale yellow and fuchsia. You don't have to use all the year's colours in your wedding; they can just provide you with a guide. Choosing colours that are in-style may give you more options for dresses, decor and accessories.

Ideas from nature

Pulling colours from nature can help give an earthy, natural look to your wedding. Using seasonal items is a traditional way to organise a wedding and never really goes out of style. For a June wedding, consider elements from your area. What colour are the butterflies, birds and wildflowers? What shade of green is the grass? Maybe use items like robin's eggs and feathers as part of your wedding's decor, they could lend themselves nicely to a wedding with a blue and white theme.
