Monday Mood Board: A Late Summer Sun Inspired Wedding
Good morning, lovelies! I hope you’re all well and the weekend has treated you kindly? As the realisation sets in that September is upon us, and autumn is in finger-reach distance, we do have a dreamy mood board post that is more than likely to add a little summer sunshine back into your day.
Today’s wedding colour inspiration is a combination of gorgeous hues with a twist, made up of beautiful, hazy summer evening shades such as pinks, purples and golden sunshine-y yellow. Add in subtle hints of floral print and just a sprinkling of gold to make this the perfect late summer wedding palette.
So, why not make the most of this seasonal change and let it inspire your very own wedding? Let us tempt you below.

Bloomin’ Beautiful Bouquets…
How do you create this dreamy late-summer sun palette, we hear you ask? Simple and dainty summer wildflowers are perfect for this look. Choose hedge grow favourites, such as cowslip, daisies and pair with larger garden beauties such as roses, peonies and ranunculus for a fluffier and bolder look to your bridal bouquet.
Below, you can see a selection of both beautiful blooms and a lovely selection of hues. Add in touches of evergreen to incorporate different colours and textures. Dried flowers add a little of an Autumnal feel to the bouquet, whilst complimenting the pastel perfect yellows, blushes and off-whites.
For the fashion forward bride, opt for a flowing, romantic bridal gown. Alternatively, for a bohemian look, one of the sparkling Champagne Jenny Packham gowns would go down a treat. Printed floaty maxi dresses for the bridesmaids, and accessorise with matching flower crowns. Choose grey suits for the boys with pastel ties or bowties.

Stationery & Styling…
Set the scene with a softly illustrated floral suite. Alternatively, block bold colours will will set the perfect tone for your late summer wedding. Again, we’re taking inspiration from delightful sunset hues; burnt orange, mustard yellow and green colours to set the colour of the day.
For the styling, adorn your venue with candles to match the blooms, stationery and overall colour palette. Not only do candles work out as a budget friendly option, but add a little touch of warmth, reminding guests of your seasonal affair.

All of the Details…
As the leaves start to turn and the sun sits lower in the sky, yet evenings are still long and mild, this colour palette would be just perfect for a wedding, lapping up the last of the sun.
Capture summer in a bottle with DIY olive oil or honey for favours to gift your guests. Alternatively, these cocktails below look like they’d go down an absolute treat. I’ll leave you to use your imagination to decide upon the flavouring…
