Dark or light colours for wedding motif?

I want to help my fiancee make wedding arrangements. She has assigned me to coming up with good colour motifs for our big day. I’m not really the artsy type of person so I need others’ opinions whether we should have dark or light colours. We’re having a June wedding, on the 20th to be exact. It’s our second anniversary after knowing each other in a meet foreign tours. I think she would want to match our motif with the season. If I’m not mistaken it’s a day before the official start of summer. Wouldn’t it be nice to welcome the summer with a wedding full of summer colours? There are dark colours for summer and there are light ones too. I don’t know which one to choose.

It really depends on the theme of the wedding and the colour palette of the day- bridal bouquet, bridemaids dresses etc. If you're going for a summer theme why not utilise some of those tropical colours- bright, vivacious colours with deep green tropical leaves. 

Or you can be more classical with creams and white, with pops of champagne and soft pink colours.
