Step into summer with today’s rich, wild hues for a summer berry wedding! The luxurious raspberry hues has to be one of my all-time favorite colors, not the least when it takes center stage in lush summer greenery and glittering gold. It’s not uncommon to hear the phrase ‘pop of color’ when it comes to design – whether it’s an outfit, home decor, or event design – but the most effective pop, for my money, is something vibrant and unexpected like this rich berry. It makes a lovely statement against a simpler backdrop – if you can can gold sparkle, rich wood grain, or rough brick simple – bringing that dramatic color center stage in your design.
Berry makes a lovely meeting ground when it comes to picking your wedding colors: it’s not quite red and not quite pink. More subtle than fuchsia but brighter than wine, it can be bold and dramatic while remaining sophisticated and bringing an elegant touch to a rustic look. A focus-pulling color like berry is a great way to make a dramatic impact with a smaller budget. If florals aren’t at the top of your financial priority for your wedding, spend the bulk of your decor budget on a grouping of vibrant blooms like peonies, dahlias, or garden roses, and the rest on less costly greenery for filler. Lush arrangements of ferns, vines, and leaves create a sense of fullness in the center of your table, while jewel-bright accent flowers add color and drama for a high-impact arrangement!
