With great temperatures and beautiful outdoor scenery, many consider summer the ideal wedding season. If you are planning a summer wedding, consider these trends to create a day filled with unforgettable moments.
Bright hues are a fan favourite in summer weddings; however, it’s important to consider the number of colours used and how they complement each other. Too many colours can be distracting so keep things simple and sophisticated and only use a couple main colours.
Add a Theme to Your Wedding
Your wedding is a celebration of a new life chapter. A theme helps celebrate this momentous occasion. Maybe you and your fiancé have a favourite summer hangout (i.e. the beach) or a specific travel destination you plan on visiting together. Tie in meaningful aspects of this location into your wedding. If Hawaii is a travel destination you both share, table pieces could incorporate bouquets of orchids or black lava rocks placed at the bottom of the centerpiece vases. This adds a personal feel to your special day.
Break the Rules with Your Wedding Cake
I’m sure we are all familiar with the white wedding cake, which has appeared in weddings for generations. This summer, dare to break the wedding cake norms! With a plethora of creative options, expand your options to include a strawberry shortcake-style or a citrus-infused filling such as key lime, lemon or orange-vanilla buttercream. But why stop the fun with the cake? An ice cream truck is a great dessert option to keep your summer theme alive. After all, what says “summer is here” better than an ice cream truck!
Add a unique touch to your bar menu. With a nice frosty touch, wine smoothies are a perfect signature drink for the evening. This drink consists of a fruity wine combined with ice and fruits of your choice.
Here you have the latest wedding trends of this summer! For all the couples stepping into marriage this summer, congratulations and good luck!
