I think you could make red and yellow summer colors and just work the summer thing into your theme! I wouldn’t pick these colors, but that’s because they were my high school’s colors and it would be strange for us and my friends.

Do what you want!

I don’t see how red and yellow can be designated as simply winter colors.  In the summer there plenty of red and yellow flowers, right?  So it would be fine.  I think the two go together.  I might try to join them with orange too.  If you like red the best, could you have red Bm dresses, and bouquets with yellow (and maybe orange :))?

I’m all for picking the colors you like, no matter the season. I’m going with the very soft combo of blue and pink for my wedding, in spite of the fact that it’s in July!

I think the red/yellow combo is very summery! Check out these great Snippet & Ink boards:

Hi Gemstone!

Congrats on your engagement and picking out your wedding date! As far as following the "Seasonal Guidelines", it’s not really mandatory, but it can play an important role. The only way it becomes important is in certain apsects of planning your wedding. For example: you may be choosing certain flowers for your wedding that can only be available during certain seasons or months. It’s also a possibility, if you’re trying to locate a dress for your bridesmaids in a certain color. Color can also vary upon season as well especially if the things you want has to be ordered. Just giving you small ideas as to how color can be a problem at times.

But to be honest I love your color scheme (yellow and red) because there is so much that you can do with it.  If you want your wedding to have that summer feel, don’t be afraid to add hints of other summer colors into your wedding as well. Your wedding colors according to color schemes is more on the "Tetrad" side, which consists of four colors, your wedding colors and hints of green and purple. I’m not saying you have to use the other two colors but it gives you a general idea as to what could work but there are other colors that would work as well. So go with your heart and do what you want for your wedding. Like I always tell my brides, "Do what makes you happy, it’s your wedding day, not theirs"; you could ask their opinions and they could tell you, but that doesn’t mean that you have to follow it. I hope this was helpful to you. Good Luck & Happy Planning!!!
