Dreaming of a fancy garden party wedding? Consider a bright and peppy lime-and-pink color palette. The mix of the sweet feminine shade with the bolder tone makes for a refined yet playful soirée.

Pastel pink and sorbet-hued lime is one of our favorite color combos for spring or summer weddings. The bright tones are unexpected and fresh for warm-weather nuptials, plus they complement the lush seasonal flowers. Be warned: The poppy colors often need to be tamed. Stick to one tone for your main décor elements and add highlights of the opposite to avoid color overload.

To execute this trendy color combo, think of inspired ways to blend the two hues. Graphic dinnerware or green table linens are great opportunities to add the lime hue to your décor. Plus, your centerpieces will really pop since it perfectly accents the pink flowers. Mix and match the colors for your invitation, wedding cake, and favors.
