This March weather feels more like June, so I thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite summer wedding trends provided by The Knot.
Show off some color! Bright hues are always a popular choice for summer weddings.
What’s hot now: Think sophisticated brights. Sticking with just two hues (or two plus an accent color) will keep your space unified. Rather than splashing color all over your reception space, use one dynamic color for a strong statement — think all-pink centerpieces or bold orange table linens. This holds especially true for your centerpieces: Instead of multicolored centerpieces, alternate single-color floral arrangements for a pulled-together look.
Select a Theme! Tropical, beach or garden themes are classic for the summer.
What’s hot now: Think of your favorite summer hangouts when planning your theme. Rather than just any beach, bring in elements specific to the beach you remember as a kid. If it was a cabin in the woods, go for a mountain theme. Or try adding sand or sea shells to your centerpieces or tablescape.
Go Bold with your Invites! Letterpressed invites in ivory and black are still popular. But if you want to go for something a little more unexpected, creative wedding invitation designers definitely have color and printing options for you.
What’s hot now: Use colors in a new and unexpected way on your invites by reversing the typical invitation color scheme. For example, rather than using fuchsia lettering on a cream-colored invite, opt for cream print on fuchsia paper. Or mix it up — do the cream-colored invite with fuchsia writing, and then a bright pink reply card with a cream-colored font. Consider the material of your invite as well. One hot-off-the-press idea: Get fabric-printed invites, programs, and escort cards for a laid-back look perfect for summer.
