I’m a recently engaged bee and already freaking out over wedding plans; can’t make my mind up yet over colors, venues, etc.
I know it’s still very early in the process – we’ve only been engaged 2 months and the wedding isn’t until next year – but everyone else I know that is recently married had these ideas in mind from the time they were proposed to!
I tend to like darker colors, i.e. navy, but am afraid since we already have the date locked for a summery June, (the first thing I did was set the date with the church,) the colors in mind won’t work with the season. Has anyone seen, or used themselves, dark colors for a summer wedding? Thanks!!

Navy blue is traditionally thought of as a summer color. Pair it with something brighter and it will be a beautiful wedding. It goes with almost everything- yellow, pink, coral, bright green etc

Navy and white, or navy and green or coral would be gorgeous colors for a summer wedding! I think it will definitely work out for you!

Can you talk with your FI to see if he has any opinions? I wanted to use my favorite colours (Dark Blue and Silver) but he always loved baby blue so we morphed to include what he liked. (Our wedding is now all shades of blue, with white)
Our wedding actually reflects HIS personality and likes more than mine. You’ll never know until you ask and if you’re like me and didn’t plan your wedding since you were 3… having his opinion will be a good thing 🙂

Welcome and congratulations! I am getting married this summer and my colors are: royal purple, lavender, ivory, and black. They may be darker colors for a summer wedding, but purple is my favorite color! Plus, I am getting married in a town that’s pretty hot during the summer, and if my bridesmaids are sweating it’s probably not going to show as much! 🙂

everyones ideas and pictures were great – I feel much better about this color now!
as for the FI, he pretty much let me have free reign, haha. I try to ask him but he just assures me each time that whatever I decide will be fine with him. But we both agree on navy – its both our favorite color.

I love navy!! 😀 I started out with the concept of navy blue and apple green, and that eventually evolved into cobalt blue and apple green, but I still love navy blue!
Here’s the inspiration board I started with:
