I think red is the one color that goes with all the seasons — same for the black/white/silver accents.  My suggestion would be to make sure the fabrics you use are season appropriate.  But I think it sounds great!  Good luck planning πŸ™‚

You are fine!

My aunt just got married over the summer. It was semi-formal and her colors were black/white/pink. It looked beautiful and I’m sure yours will too!

I’m getting married July of next year and we’re doing red and black with white accents. You’ll be fine! No one is going to come to your summer wedding and say, “Wow, what weird colors to pick for summer!” Instead they’ll be saying, “Wow, what a beautiful wedding!”

Do what you want! πŸ™‚

You’ll be fine!  I got married last July and our colors were Red and Gold and there was plenty of white and black incorporated into everything too.  We had a semi-formal, evening wedding.

I went to a July wedding last summer with the same theme… semi formal, red, black, white, and silver – it was very pretty!!!!  Ceremony and reception was outdoors (so the reception was quite humid), but as far as the color scheme, it was beautiful!

I’m getting married in July and our colors are red, yellow and white. πŸ™‚ The black is a given with the men’s tuxes. I think it works great! Very classy. πŸ™‚

Hi-ya almost date twin!!  Our wedding is deep metallic purple, black, white, with hints of bling on July 22!!!  You can absolutely have a red wedding in July.  I don’t think it’s exclusive to Valentine’s day/Feb wedding.  BUT******I would advise you go out right now today and some of this red decor/details that is on sale bc it’s the days following Valentine’s day!!!!!!!

I had a crimson, black, white (with gold/champagne accents) wedding in May and didn’t think twice about the color scheme. One thing that my MOH said during my reception as we were looking around the room was – “I think you are saving a lot of marriages tonight! People look like they are falling in love again!” I thought that was the biggest compliment (although I don’t know how true it is… but just the sentiment was sweet). 

One thing I should mention is: the crimson, black, and white palette didn’t really match our outdoor venue so we used our accent color (gold/champagne) for the ceremony and saved the crimson, black, and white for the reception. My bms did wear crimson, I had a black sash, and my bouquet was crimson, but that was the only hint of the color scheme we used in the ceremony. I didn’t intend for this to happen, but that made the wedding party and our bouquets really pop! The people became the center of attention instead of the ceremony decorations.

i think having a V-day inspired wedding in July will be wonderful! It will be romantic and your guests will enjoy another opportunity to indulge in some passion and adoration!

Good luck!

I say go for it!  I don’t get why people make such a fuss about colors and the seasons that weddings fall under…. I’m an August bride and will have dark red as my main color.  Oh well, we like it πŸ˜‰

Wow! I was JUST thinking this same question! I was about to make a post, lol.

My wedding colors I’m considering is Red, Gold, Black and White, and I was thinking of an ‘Evening in Italy’ theme, but I got soo nervous cause I am worried about heavy Italian foods on a hot day.

Brides, will you post your inspiration and/or reception pics?  I think that will help me and the OP out alot.^^
