In the summer there’s greenery everywhere from the fresh cut green grass to the palm trees on the beach.

Light blue bridesmaid dresses will look beautiful with your white wedding dress, filler greenery, and pastel flower arrangements. There are tons of blue bridesmaid dress colors to choose from but two of our favorite light blue shades are fog and sky blue.

3) Dusty Rose Bridesmaid Dresses

Pink Summer Bridesmaid Dresses

Pink has to be one of the most popular bridesmaid dress colors of all time. You don’t have to go bright to bring a little femininity to your summer wedding color palette. Our desert rose bridesmaid dresses are the perfect toned down shade of pink. We love this shade especially for June wedding colors as everyone transitions from the pastels of spring to more summery colors!

4) Dusty Blue Wedding Colors

Imagine yourself swimming in the ocean, then imagine bringing that feeling to your wedding. A deep dusty blue is all you need to bring a waterfront feel to your summer wedding. Our marine blue bridesmaid dresses remind us of a day out on a boat. Pair this color with white flowers and accents for a coastal look.

5) Neutral Wedding Colors: Beige Bridesmaid Dresses

Bright colored bridesmaid dresses can come in and out of fashion over the years. Neutrals have a more lasting charm. If you love neutral tones in your home and in your everyday fashion, why not use a neutral color palette for your wedding? There are many different shades of neutral toned bridesmaid dresses but two of our most popular options are fawn and latte.

6) Sage Green Bridesmaid Dresses

Sage is another lovely green color for bridesmaid dresses. This color is subtle, light, and versatile. A fun color combination for summer is sage green bridesmaid dresses with contrasting warm colored accents. We love peach, orange, and white accents with this green shade. Your multi-colored bouquets will pop against the sage green dresses!

7) Terracotta Wedding Colors for a Warm Palette

Spice Bridesmaid Dresses | Tonya Hjort

Spice bridesmaid dresses are the perfect pairing for your terracotta wedding color palette. Spice is an earthy orange-red tone. This color reminds us of clay pottery and coastal Spanish architecture. We love this color combined with other warm summery tones like gold, yellow, burnt orange, red, peach, and dusty pink. You could even incorporate boho-style potted plants in your summer wedding decor!

8) Baby Blue Summer Wedding Colors

Cornflower Blue Summer Bridesmaid Dresses

For a baby blue wedding color palette, consider our cornflower bridesmaid dresses. Baby blue pairs perfectly with other cool tones like lavender, sky blue, sage green, and white accents. This soft yet bright tone might be the perfect pop of color for your summer wedding! You could also incorporate colored glassware, wood tones, and white linen to create a coastal wedding aesthetic.

Unique Summer Wedding Colors That Will Make Your Day Stand Out

Want to choose an unexpected summer wedding color? We’ve seen beautiful weddings with a wide range of color palettes. You don’t have to choose the colors you’ve seen at other summer weddings. Choose the colors you love in your everyday life and incorporate one or more of them into your perfect wedding color scheme! If you want to stand out, get creative with inspiration from your favorite parts of the summer season.

1) Gold Bridesmaid Dresses

Gold is a balanced semi-neutral tone that can complement almost any wedding color scheme. Our gold bridesmaid dresses are a great compromise if you aren’t sure if you want to choose a color or stay neutral. This yellow-beige tone is light and airy like a breezy summer day.

2) Deep Sea Wedding Colors

Deep Sea Blue Summer Bridesmaid Dress Colors

Blues are popular in summer weddings because they remind us of the bright sky, our favorite lake days, and tropical beaches. Deep sea blue is a contemporary take on coastal colors. This muted blue-green color is inspired by the ocean. It pairs well with other muted colors like moss green, lilac, and dusty pink. As with most blue shades, it also works well with white accents for a nautical or coastal summer wedding.

3) Cinnamon Wedding: Rust Bridesmaid Dresses

Red is an uncommon summer wedding color option if you want to stand out! Cinnamon bridesmaid dresses are a reddish-orange shade that’s bold and bright! Cinnamon is a great choice if you want to go for a rust wedding color scheme. Contrast the red with navy blue and white for a nostalgic Americana aesthetic,  perfect for July wedding colors!

Summer is full of afternoon thunderstorms, warm days on the water, and blooming hydrangeas. Include this blue-gray color inspiration in your wedding colors with storm blue bridesmaid dresses. There are plenty of blue summer flowers to include in your bouquets and centerpieces to complement the blue theme. You could also contrast with green tones, different purple hues, or shades of white.

5) Rose Gold Sequin Bridesmaid Dresses

Rose gold is an iconic and classic shade of pink. Our rose gold bridesmaid dresses all feature at least sequin accents, some are head-to-toe sequins. Your bridesmaids should feel special on your big day, so let them sparkle a little in the summer sun! Rose gold is also a great summer pink wedding color because it’s light enough to almost be a neutral.

6) Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses (in any color!)

Spice, Blush, and Peach Bridesmaid Dresses | Felicia Angel & Sarah Dunlap

Mismatched bridesmaid dresses are a great way to make your wedding stand out! Traditionally, bridesmaids all used to wear the same dress in the same color. Now, brides are embracing the idea of mixing the style and the color of their bridesmaid dresses. Using multiple shades of a similar color can create a gradient or ombre effect. We love the idea of including multiple shades of pink bridesmaid dress colors instead of just choosing one.

7) Purple & Lilac Bridesmaid Dresses

Combining dark and light shades of one color will create a fun dual-tone effect. Choosing different shades will break up the monotony of single-color bridesmaid dresses. This will also look really fun in your photos! One example is mixing two contrasting shades of purple bridesmaid dresses. Our eggplant and french lilac bridesmaid dresses look beautiful together. You can even combine multiple shades of purples in your bouquets to match the effect.

8) Bridesmaid Dresses in Contrasting Colors

You have a wide variety of bridesmaid dress color options to choose from, so why choose only one? Your bridesmaids dresses can be as colorful and diverse as your flower bouquets!

Summer Bridesmaid Dresses that are Cute & Comfortable

Comfort is one of the most important aspects of a summer bridesmaid dress. You’ll need dresses that are lightweight, offer plenty of movement, and are made with materials that stay cool.

How to Choose Your Summer Bridesmaid Dresses!

Choose summer bridesmaid dresses that suit the venue, bridesmaids’ body types, and the wedding aesthetic! If the wedding is outdoors, consider bridesmaid dresses with a leg slit or a shorter hem to make it easier for bridesmaids to get around on the terrain. Spaghetti straps are a popular feature for summer weddings, we especially recommend straps that are adjustable for a custom fit! 

Consider different lightweight fabrics like chiffon or satin and avoid fabrics like velvet that might be a little warm for your June, July, or August wedding. For popular wedding colors, consider any version of your favorite everyday color schemes! Think about colors that will look nice in bright sunlight and with the outdoor scenery of the wedding venue.
