Again pink and purple are really dominant unless you want a splash of orange and yellow from late tulips and rannuculus. You could do a full citrus color combination for your wedding. Grape purple, watermelon pink, citrus orange, lemon yellow and kiwi green. Wedding tip – forgo the typical evening fete, for a lovely afternoon wedding. Spring afternooons are always so light and pretty- a great way to enjoy the bright colors that are available at this time.
