Some people think that red is more appropriate for winter and fall weddings, and ya, maybe it fall and winter themes would be the first to come to mind, but it certainly doesn’t have to be that way. Using red in the right proportion to other colors quickly and easily turns red into the perfect summer wedding color. Think of all the Summer flowers that grow very red in the Texas Hill Country! GeorgeTown Texas has named it self the Poppy Capital of Texas during the Late Spring an Early Summer there are red patches every where you look along the side of the road.

Great summer wedding color combinations for red include champagne, pink and yellow.

Lavender works so well for summer weddings because it conjures up images of Mediterranean Europe and gentle afternoons in the park. One of favorite themes for a summer wedding is, in fact lavender! With lavender spilling into favors (lavender tea or lavender plants), and even your menu (lavender shorbet or lavender pork) it’s a uniquely beautiful start to a summer wedding theme. A great Venue to think about along with a Mediterranean Theme is the Villa Antonia, located just outside of Austin on Lake Travis with a Beautiful Tuscan feel. Also think of locations like the Mandolla Winery or Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center!
