Wedding season is here! And with it come a slew of summer wedding trends that are totally worth looking at.
The sound of beach waves and the smell of sunscreen isn’t the only thing to be excited for with the arrival of summer. It’s wedding season! And with the 2016 season upon us also comes a slew of new wedding trends and ideas for summer brides to incorporate into their own big days. Whether it’s in wedding dress fashion, reception décor or menu inspiration, this summer’s brides are letting their personalities totally shine through in the warm season.
Gone are the days of cookie cutter like weddings and set traditions that every couple needed to follow when planning their own big days. If these new summer wedding trends tell us anything, it’s that the personalized wedding crafted around a couple’s signature style and vibe is totally here to stay. Two brides saying “I do” in crop top wedding dresses? You bet. Fun and festive wedding menus bursting with as much flavor as the couple’s personality? Oh yeah. It’s your day, your turn to celebrate your love surrounded by friends and family in the heat of the summer — there are no rules when it comes to décor, theme or what you need to wear!
One trend we’re which is in the spotlight is ‘Minimalism’. The trick to pulling off this less-is-more theme is down scaling, which is music to any bride’s ears when she’s knee-deep in wedding planning. Forget the seat covers your future mother-in-law told you that you needed, the outrageously expensive flower wall that you totally can’t afford and the stuffy and oh-so-decadent three-course menu that is definitely not your style. The best part of going with the minimalist trend this summer is that you can forget about everything you’re not completely in love with. Serve up your wedding dinner family style and encourage conversation! Use simple glass vases as your centerpiece with just one or two stems of your favorite flower.
In addition to super trendy minimalism, whether it’s for your wedding dress or your bridesmaid dresses, crop tops are here to stay this summer. Pair them with a lace skirt for your brunch wedding, instead of a traditional dress, or wear one with high-waisted pants for your rehearsal dinner.
Also popular this year is the ‘The Moscow Mule’ type copper mug which you can use to sip your official wedding drink and have the bartender serve a handful of your favorite drinks with lime or a splash of ginger beer
Jeweled headpieces are the new wedding hair accessory. Whether you opt for a small subtle barrette or a striking headdress, you’ll be sure to look like vintage royalty walking down that aisle.
Think flowers and candles are the only way you can add a summer twist to your reception tables? Think again. Give your centerpieces a sweet twist by incorporating your favorite fruit, whether that’s apples, lemons, or even limes. It’s a surprising touch that instantly elevates your table settings.
Hope this style trend update was useful and you can think about incorporating some of elements into your wedding day
