Summer is one of the most popular times to throw a wedding. Warm weather, gorgeous sunsets and colorful flowers make the perfect background for a special day. There are many new and exciting trends for weddings this summer.
1. Wedding Dress Trends
Picking out a wedding dress is one of the most exciting parts of the wedding planning process for the bride. Summer wedding dresses at David’s Bridal highlight many of the popular trends, including dramatic skirts and colorful gowns. Gowns with beautiful and full skirts stand out among the crowd. These beautiful dresses feature cascading fabrics that create a truly special look. The Galina Signature brand captures this style with a gorgeous organza gown with a tiered skirt. White isn’t the only color choice for wedding dresses any more. David’s Bridal offers some subtle pink gowns if you want a more non-traditional, yet still beautiful look.
2. Creative Favors
Fun wedding favors leave an impression that lasts in a guest’s memory for years. More couples are choosing to give memorable and personal wedding favors. Some choose a permanent reminder of the wedding, such as a personalized drinking glass. Other couples opt for something more perishable and delicious. Candy, fruit and jams are appealing choices.
3. Crafted Elements
From the invitations to the reception centerpieces, many couples are choosing to show their crafty side in every element of their wedding. Previously, many of these elements were left to professionals to produce. Hand-crafted pieces add a personal flair to a wedding. Popular craft projects include chalkboard centerpieces, cute candy boxes for wedding favors, and handmade invitations.
Fashionable wedding color combinations change every year. Trendy colors this summer include bold citrus colors, such as color of the year, tangerine tango, and lemon. These bright colors add a fun pop of color to centerpieces, cakes and flowers. With so many amazing flowers in bloom in the summer, it’s easy to find matching floral centerpieces and bouquets. These natural colors suit an outdoor wedding especially well.
5. Themed Weddings
Years ago, when people thought of themed weddings, they conjured up images of a costume party. Today, themed weddings take a more subtle approach. Some themed weddings pay homage to the couple’s upcoming honeymoon. A couple planning a honeymoon to France may choose French pastries for dessert and use pictures of Paris for decoration. A couple having a beach wedding might go all out with a fun luau theme. Themed weddings usually represent the couple’s past and future, as well as their interests.
No matter which trends you choose to incorporate in your wedding, be sure to include some personal touches that are representative of you as a couple to make your big day even more special!
