granny smith apple

One of my favorite color palettes for summer outdoor weddings is light yellow. It’s a soft and ‘wedding appropriate’ color that looks absolutely beautiful when bathed in natural sunlight!

The light yellowish-green of granny smith apples makes a naturally gorgeous summer wedding color when paired with browns and whites. If you’re going to use apples in your decor like this inspiration board shows, be sure to look for ways to add other circular motifs throughout your wedding. For example: the wedding logos on the invitations and that chic yellow chair. To really let this color glow add touches of powder blue to your table tops!
