Summer wedding season is heating up, and fun new trends are following suit. Don’t get stuck with the same traditional styles of the season! Keep reading for wedding elements that are bound to make a splash!
1. Charismatic Colors
Bright colors are often popular at summer weddings. Don’t be afraid to make a statement with your color palette! Combinations like Marigold & Poppy Red will delight without creating an aesthetic that is more fair-grounds then fairytale.
If you would prefer something more muted, try using a bright color paired with pastels or accents like grey and creme.
2. Celestial Accents
On your wedding day, you want to shine like the star you are! Why not cover yourself with the sparkle of constellations?
For a more subtle nod to the sky above, incorporate glittery eyeshadow or a sparkly headpiece.
3. Eco-Friendly Wedding Favors
With the world around us being more conscious of “going green” than ever before, eco-friendly favors are growing more and more popular.
You can’t go wrong with anything edible! Guests are always happy to take home a treat that reminds them of your ceremony. To make it unique, try looking for something specific to your area or wedding venue!
Are plants more your style? Small succulents in pots reminiscent of your wedding decor are a hit, too.
4. Nods to the Royal Wedding
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to be married May 19, 2018, just as summer wedding season kicks off. Details from the regal couples’ nuptials are sure to sneak up in weddings around the world.
Our favorite detail is the unusual but exciting lemon-elderflower flavor of their cake. Incorporating these flavors into a cocktail or sparkling beverage is a fun way to include elements fit for a princess.
5. Fun Food
Lots of couples are straying from tradition on-site caterers and multiple course meals at their wedding receptions. To make your summer wedding really stand out, offer a twist on formal dining options.
For health-conscious brides, an organic-farm to table meal may be an enticing option. Partner with local businesses and agriculture to create a menu that showcases your home-town cuisine.
Quirky couples may be more inclined to have a food truck on site for their reception, convenient for outdoor wedding locations.
Whatever the trend, your wedding is bound to be perfect is it’s planned from the heart. Your guests will be delighted to see you make your vows in the summer sun!
