Primrose, buttercup, lemon ... yellow wedding themes just glow and springtime is the perfect time of year to go for this color option.
You'll have your pick of spring blooms
Spring flowers smell beautiful as well as looking fresh and pretty. What choices do you have? We're thinking narcissi and paper whites, daffodils, primroses, tulips. Contrast with blue - little grape hyacinths and possibly some classic white roses. The spring bride featured above has a beautiful bouquet.
As for your tables - think of winter jasmine to add some structure. A long central table decoration looks super stylish and doesn't get in the way of conversation.
And for your bridesmaids? Here we've picked out bridesmaid frocks from Dessy in buttercup, which is a soft, gentle kind of a hue. As ever, you can choose a neckline and length to suit the style of your day (and your maids). And we haven't forgotten your flowergirls either.

You can use yellow as a single color theme or mix it up with white, blues or greys.
It's such an optimistic, happy kind of a color. Light and ideal for a wedding in late morning or afternoon. Especially a barn wedding or one that's rustic style.

Maybe have a dessert table in yellow? Decorate your tables with large lemons placed in glass vases, as above. Have striped yellow straws at a drinks stand.
You could serve citrus flavored drinks and lemon flavored macarons.
Have lemon cakes, tea with slices of lemon instead of milk. Talk to your caterer and your florist about your color theme and see what ideas they have to inspire the proceedings!
Mustard yellow seems to be everywhere these days in fashion. From sweaters, to shirts and pants. So why not bridesmaid dresses? We're in love with this vibrant color because it just gorgeous and can go with so many other colors. What is great is that it goes with most of the seasons too!
So many of our dresses come in a variation of this color, we picked just a few of our favorites that we thought gives a great idea of what this color is truly all about. We have the After Six Bridesmaids Style 6710, the Twist Wrap Dress, Alfred Sung Style D693 and Dessy Collection Style 2906.
Winter weddings are a beautiful magical time for a couple and the colors vary, dark colors like midnight and stormy are a color combination that are beautiful. You can intertwine other wonderful dark colors with this color combination.
We picked these three dresses we thought are perfect options for the colors. We love our After Six Bridesmaids Style 6729, 6724 and 6727.
We love the various shades of turquoise for just about any season. It works well in the fall, in the winter with some creamy whites infused and in the spring with vibrant colored flowers and other pastels.;You really can't go wrong with the color.
While we obviously love all of our dresses, we thought some of our Alfred Sung Bridesmaid dresses were perfect to show with this color. We picked a handful of dresses that bring this color out fully.
Above from left to right are styles: D674 in mediterranean, D666 in azure, D656 in mediterranean, D622 in fusion and D660 in mediterranean.
Complete the look with any of our accessories, particularly the Gathered Matte Satin Clutch in oasis.
These two colors together with a little added sparkle and shimmer are perfect for a spring or summer wedding. While many of you are preparing for your winter weddings, we thought two colors are a reason to celebrate warmer months ahead.
What is great about these two colors is that invites other wonderful colors too. You can do lighter pinks, a darker nude to add to the color palette. The opportunities are endless. This year we saw a lot of sparkle with brides going with mix and match with fabrics and styles, and a sparkly bridesmaid dress was definitely one of them.
We loved these colors in three of our newest styles from our fall collection. The dresses featured here are Dessy Collection Style 2925 in ivory, After Six Bridesmaids Style 6725 in ginger and Social Bridesmaids Style 8161 in ivory as well. If this trend continues (and we hope it will) you can really have a lot of fun with your bridesmaid dresses!
Neutral colors are great at any time of the year, and we just love a winter white and grey color combination for a winter wedding. It is romantic and simply lovely for a wedding.
Pair this color combination with vibrant red roses or a blend of creamy white ones. This color is great for various times of the year, not just the winter. If you are planning a wedding in the spring, this color combination works well too. Pastel floral bouquets work great with this color combination as well.
We loved these colors in these dresses: Alfred Sung Style D704, Lela Rose Style LR207, JY Jenny Yoo Bridesmaid Style JY507 and Dessy Collection Style 2920.

An elegant winter wedding with a beautiful combination of emerald and gold is just absolutely stunning. The subtle green and the vibrant gold is perfect with winter white and light green flowers is a perfect add-on to the winter wedding look. Deep red roses are also a great alternative to this color combination.
Winter weddings are beautiful because they're so cozy and personal this color combination just beckons love, warmth and celebration. For this color combination, we thought the After Six Bridesmaids Style 6729, Dessy Collection Style 2921 and After Six Bridesmaid Style 6624.
For the groomsmen, we recommend our After Six tuxedos that can be found at After Six.com, the tuxedos are both modern wonderful combination of modern and classic and would look great for a winter wedding.
A light pink and green wedding color theme is beautiful for a wedding during the warmer months of the year and for a destination wedding. And these two colors allow you a lot of wiggle room when it comes to wedding centerpieces and bouquets. Pink especially was popular this summer and we're sure it will be a popular color next spring and summer as well.
For these two colors, any of our dresses are work well. We particularly love Dessy Collection Style 2931, After Six Bridesmaid Style 6723 and Dessy Collection Style 2943

Add a little sparkle (or a lot!) with a very bright pink for your wedding. What is great about the Pantone tutti frutti color is that it will go well for any time of the year.
Getting married just after the holidays? What doesn't say celebration like sparkle and this color?
If you're getting married in the middle of summer, this color works too! Bright lively colors like the tutti frutti is what summer is all about. And don't be afraid to mix it up when it comes to your bridesmaid dresses!
In this style board it was so hard to choose from all the bridesmaid dresses, but we think these are just some (of many!) you will love. We included the Social Bridesmaids Style 8150, the Dessy Twist Wrap Dress, Dessy Collection Style 2908 and the After Six Bridesmaid Style 6728.
