Welcome Back!

We are thrilled to welcome visitors back to Lake Tahoe after the recent Caldor Fire. Thanks to the tireless work of all the front-line heroes and agencies who worked to protect our town and forests, Tahoe South is open and thriving. It’s the perfect time to secure your wedding date!

The weather is warming up, and soon summer weddings will be in full swing!

If you’re planning a wedding in Lake Tahoe this summer, you’ll want to choose wedding colors that showcase the venue’s beauty while reflecting what you and your partner love. 

We’ve compiled a list of trending summer wedding color palettes that we can’t wait to see at each of our South Lake Tahoe wedding venues!

1. Lavender

Lavender is known for its elegance and calming qualities, making it one of the best 2023 summer wedding colors. Whether you opt for an indoor or outdoor wedding, lavender can blend well into any venue. 

We love pairing lavender wedding accents — such as lavender bridesmaid dresses, candles, and flowers — with the decor at the Landing Resort & Spa. It’s the perfect color to highlight the tranquility and natural beauty of the venue. 

2. Emerald Green

In 2022, emerald green was a trending wedding color. We expect to see the same trend continue throughout 2023. We especially love this bold, darker color in the late summer as we start to transition seasons. 

Emerald green can be paired with various summer wedding color palettes — including gold, white, and light pink — allowing you to customize the color to your venue. 

3. Dusty Rose

We love seeing brides and grooms pull colors from the natural beauty of the Lake Tahoe area, including beautiful pale pinks, blues, and greens that you can see in the sunsets and surrounding tall pines. That’s why Dusty Rose is such a perfect color. 

Valhalla Historic Estate focuses on natural beauty and rustic elements that never go out of style. Dusty Rose fits right in with the decor here. 

4. Muted Orange

If you love warm, rich colors, muted orange is perfect for your 2023 summer wedding. You can mix in greenery to tie in the natural elements of the Tahoe Ridge Resort venue. 

Try adding different tones of orange, such as rust orange or bold orange, for additional pops of color that complement each other well. 

5. Yellow-Gold

Yellow often isn’t the first color you think of when planning your wedding, but that will change in 2023! 

Shades of yellow, specifically more golden or muted tones, will add pops of color to your big day. Your wedding will truly have that “golden hour” moment. 

6. Dusty Blue

Dusty blue is the perfect color for beach weddings to compliment the blue hues of the water and skies of your wedding day. 

We love a relaxing, muted blue, but there are many shades to choose from to help you decide on everything from bridesmaid dresses to small wedding details. 

You can marry your best friend on the beach at the Beach Retreat and Lodge at Lake Tahoe. Let the beauty of the venue speak for itself!

7. Sage Green

If you’re looking for the most popular color of 2023, find it here! Sage green continues to be a trending color for weddings, and for good reason. 

This shade can be easily implemented throughout your wedding venue and pairs beautifully with most other colors on this list. 

8. Royal Blue

If you’re looking for bold color options for your wedding day, try royal blue! This color packs a punch in the most stunning way and pairs beautifully with the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe venue. 

Enjoy this world-class property and shine bright as you celebrate your love.

9. Champagne

When you think of champagne, you probably think of elegance and celebrations. Spacious ballrooms, clinking glasses, and sparkling chandeliers come to mind. 

If you’re a fan of champagne — including the color — Harrah’s and Harveys wedding venue will be a perfect fit. Add a touch of sophistication to your 2023 wedding with champagne elements!

10. Coral

Coral is another bright and bold trending color for summer 2023 weddings. It makes for a great accent color and even pairs with some other colors on our list. 

Because it’s so bold, less is more. Decorate tables and send out invitations that implement this pop of color. 

The Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel professionals can help you create the coral wedding vision you dream of.

11. Sandy Brown

Try sandy brown tones if you’re looking for the most natural colors for your summer wedding. 

Again, this boho chic color brings out the natural elements of Lake Tahoe, keeping your wedding day classic and comfortable. 

You’ll have magazine-worthy photos from your wedding that will remain timeless.

We’re excited to see all of the stunning summer wedding color palettes at all seven of the Tahoe Wedding Site venues! We can’t wait to see how you customize each color to your special day. 

At each venue, professional wedding planners can help bring your wedding vision to life. Choose a color from the list and start with your personal wedding vision board today!
