Adding in a core classic from the 2021 collection, like Buttercream, can round out this monochromatic scheme.

If you love the color pink, but want a more modern take on this traditionally girly hue for your 2021 spring wedding, choose a shade like Raspberry Sorbet. It’s a much more sophisticated version of pink, so all the guys in the bridal party won’t shy away from wearing pink ties and boutonnieres with pink blooms. When combined with rustic neutrals, like Desert Mist and Willow, these 2021 wedding color trends will help you bring out your girly and sophisticated sides at the same time.

Spring 2021 wedding colors from Pantone's list of colors are soft and a bit understated, but the 2021 wedding color trends for summer really pack a punch. If you want a bright and cheerful wedding that matches your bright and cheerful disposition, look no further than Marigold, Illuminating, and shades of Buttercream.

Yellow flowers, like sunflowers, daisies, and lilies are perfect for a sunny wedding, while accents in shades of orange will add depth and interest to your décor. Buttercream is the perfect complementary neutral color because it will take on a golden hue when placed next to shades of yellow and orange.

Even though the summer season is known for long days and cheery colors doesn’t mean you can't create a moody event using 2021 wedding color trends from Pantone. Shades of blue, like French Blue, navy, and cobalt are popular wedding colors, especially when paired with the deep shade of blackened blue called Inkwell from Pantone’s 2021 wedding color trends list. Think moody reception spaces by candlelight, dapper groomsmen in inky blue suits, and dark, yet gorgeous, bridal bouquets and accessories.

If you aren’t interested in putting a new spin on an old trend, as is the case with a black and blue wedding, you may want to consider new wedding color trends instead. A truly unique color combination includes Amethyst Orchid and Burnt Coral from the list of 2021 wedding color trends. It’s the perfect, refreshing, one-of-a-kind color combination that the guests at your upcoming summer wedding aren’t going to expect.

Branch out a little bit to add depth to your color palette by including neutrals. Keep things light and airy with shades of Buttercream, or add some drama with Ultimate Gray.
