The trendiest colours for summer weddings

From classic shades to something fresh, don't start planning your big day until you see these trending wedding colours for 2019. There’s no time like summer for a little bit of creativity and a whole lot of colour, and more brides are embracing bold and brighter colour schemes for their warm weather wedding vows! Here are our top 5 colour trends for summer weddings:

Pantone of the year, Coral: Pantone has announced that coral is the colour of 2019. It is a bright, sunny, pinky-orange named ‘Living Coral’. A cheery tone that is perfect for a wedding, coral is a lovely hue to incorporate in your summer wedding via everything from coral coloured flowers, bridesmaids dresses, cakes, or the bespoke wedding favours. Our tip try using our Ivory range of boxes with a light coral grosgrain ribbon to give it that pop of colour while keeping it elegant.

Peach, Sage & Gold: For most outdoor weddings we find inspiration in the blooming trees dangling their fresh summer fruits. Blend light, leafy sage with dainty peach for a truly nature-inspired feel, with pops of gold for added glamour. We suggest using our natural kraft boxes paired with our perfect peach grosgrain ribbon for your wedding favours. There are gorgeous ideas online about how ribbons are tied around boxes to add that perfect finish. Sage green is also a very popular colour this summer and we have a few sage green ribbons – Spring Moss, Soft Pine, Sage Green and Deep Sage.

Accent Metallic: We have seen that the royal weddings have inspired many to have more opulent choices for their big days. Metallic touches, personalised monograms and regal touches with an array of textures add that extra royal look and feel. Metallic wedding favour packaging will boast luxury and royalty. Our range of Metal Elements boxes are perfect to create that royal luxurious look and feel many brides are searching for. We also offer foiling on the boxes to incorporate a personalised monogram to add that extra finesse.

Neutrals: For 2019 weddings, many have opted for a more green, organic and lush look at their wedding. With flowers and foliage it gives weddings a more natural, whimsical and romantic look and feel. We suggest using our Natural Kraft boxes; and for a pop of colour, tie a ribbon around the box. We have so many colours available. So, if your clients are looking for something specific, you will be surprised to see that our collection may just have it.

Hot Pink & Pearls: We have seen a trend of hot pink mixed with pearls from dresses with pockets to hot pink wedding gowns. This trend is a direct inspiration from the red carpet and social media. We suggest using our Pale Ivory Boxes with our hot pink ribbon to pull of this look for wedding favour boxes or bridal party gift hampers.

We hope that these colour trends have got your creative juices flowing and that a few of the colours above have piqued your interest when ordering your boxes or ribbons from Foldabox.
