My wedding was in July.  My girls wore navy and we all had bright orange.  I’d say anyone who follows a wedding website would probably think we were wearing autumn or even winter colors (or both).  Not only did I not care, no one at my actual wedding did anything but tell me what a fantastic color combo it was.  Use the colors you love!

Agree. You can definitely get away with your original color scheme. If you wanted to lighten it up, you could switch out some of the richer colors for some lighter ones. So do burgundy with a crimson or dusty rose, or do the deep purple with lilac accents. I love the contrast of rich “fall” colors with lighter “spring” colors, I think they photograph really well.

stokesto:  My wedding was just this past August and our colors were dark grey, light grey, blush, ivory, light green and gold. I felt like they were really good colors for the summer, but I’m also biased. You could easily incorporate purple into that!

Edit: didn’t see your post for choosing colors, but I love them!

You can still do rich and bold colors. I had a late August wedding, and went with navy for the bridesmaids, and bright pink, burnt orange, and green for the flowers. I actually considered purple for the bridesmaids but they preferred navy.

We are doing ivory and gold, and today Fiance decided he wants a grey suite so ivory gold and hints of grey it will be 😉 we will be doing grey pants, Ivory vest and tie and grey jacket
