6 Beautiful & Inspiring Wedding Colors for May 2015
May is such a popular month to have your wedding in due to its fair temperatures and relatively dry season. It’s an exciting month as we are just stepping out of spring and bouncing into summer, so everyone tends to be in high spirits, great for your wedding day right? One of the other benefits is the wide choice of flowers, the list is endless, making it much cheaper to get what you want at the price you want. With the focus on pretty posies, we have identified a gorgeous color palette perfect for the popular month of May.
Although most people don’t usually associate May with the color blue, we feel cornflower blue is a beautiful introduction to summer. It can be made as vibrant as you like or in pastel shades due to its natural variation in color, giving brides more flexibility on the color and an easy choice of bouquet flowers.

We love this color idea for May, it’s such a beautiful shade of pink and peonies make such beautiful bouquets. Try introducing the color with white and make the most of the peony motif on invitations and place cards.

A clean and simple palette, which uses the flower of the month; the white lily! They are such a statement flower which means you can do everything in white, or if you want to introduce that natural light green and lemon that you find in lilies.
