The Beach Bride Guide to Wedding Colors

DATE: September 5, 2014

From the décor to the dress, you know exactly what you want for your beach wedding, EXCEPT—you can’t seem to decide on a color scheme. Luckily, Sundial Resort’s gorgeous beachfront backdrop and serene natural surroundings are the perfect setting for ANY color scheme. The beach’s neutral-colored sand, luminous sunlight and dancing blue-green sea is also ideal for accenting your color scheme.

Tis’ the Season

When picking a palette perfect for your wedding day, many brides start by searching for colors that are “in season.”  Since there are many shades to each hue, the possibilities are endless.  To help you choose, check out these popular beach wedding colors, organized by season:

  • Fall: Tan, gold metallic, ivory, cream and champagne
  • Winter: Navy, gold and silver metallic, burgundy and darker shades of purple
  • Spring: Pinks, blues and greens
  • Summer: Rose pink, yellows, greens and neon colors

Environment & Mood

Using colors and elements that reflect your own style is important . The decor you pick will create an environment for your wedding guests, while setting the mood for the entire event. Create an elegant and refined event for a casual, island-style wedding at Sundial Beach Resort. Say “I do” at the resort’s beach or lawn romantic ceremony locations, and then celebrate at our indoor and/or outdoor reception facilities with amazing Gulf front vistas.


Neon shades of yellow and pink are perfect for brides wanting a bright color scheme.

Neon Colors

If you are a spunky and sassy bride who loves bright colors, you’re in luck! Neon colors are trending in bridal fashion. If you want a bright and colorful wedding, remember a little, goes a long way.  For example, splashes of shocking pink in floral bouquets will echo current neon color trends without taking the attention away from  your bridal beauty.


The same holds true for copper and metallic trends for 2015.  Earthy elements, like driftwood and shells, make beautiful centerpieces when combined with a subtle copper kiss.


Sundial Resort has a full-service salon and spa, available for all of our brides and their guests.
