If you're planning an event—be it a wedding, a birthday, a shower, or a backyard BBQ—consider using a color that practically beckons perfect sunny weather: fuchsia. Use it for a dramatic pop, paired with darker colors like navy or black, or go for a bright color palette by bringing other standouts into your color scheme, like cool lime green or bright orange.
