This season’s trends – bright color palettes, fun tassel installations, untamed flowers and food carts-are heating up summer weddings. Read on the ideas to inspire your wedding planning.
BRIGHT and BOLD are BETTER
Add the jazz on your wedding with colour! Trade the pastels and neutral tones of spring for a vibrant palette of pinks, yellows, oranges and blues. Keep your colour picks feeling fresh by sticking to a few hues that work well together, or opt for various shades of the same color (think: magenta, berry pink and soft peony). Move from the basics and Incorporate colour into everything from invites to linens, flowers to patterned bridesmaid dresses—even your food and signature sips are free game.
Keeping with the surge of colour in weddings, the latest trend is a pop of neon. We love an accent of poppy pink on a classic letterpress invitation, or a laser cut detail in bright lime green. It’s the mix of styles that keeps this look feeling modern and wedding chic. Opting for more classic invites? Add some neon into your day of paper, like menus or even farewell confetti.
Summer Decor Trend: Tassels
Flowers will always be the go-to option for wedding décor, but we can’t get enough of these playful (and colorful) tassels. From tissue paper garland to dainty thread cake toppers to full on altar-installations, you can incorporate this motif in subtle or big ways. Incorporate it into your stationery, or tie up your favors boxes with a hint of fringe. Best of all, tassels are an easy project to DIY if you’re looking to add a personal touch to your wedding day decor.
Summer Wedding Flower Trend: Undone Wildflowers
Let your florals run wild. Untamed bouquets, hand-tied posies and eclectic mixes of blooms are all the rage. Opt for an arrangement of stems in various hues for a casual celebration. Hosting a more formal affair? Stick to lush blooms in two colors and incorporate greens, like ivy and seeded eucalyptus for that natural feel. If you’re hosting an outdoor celebration (especially a bridal shower) consider having a flower favor bar, where guests can make their own bouquet of just-picked stems to take home.
Summer Food Trend: Food Carts
We are obsessed with this new take on stations: food carts. Instead of guests moving from table to table to load up their plates, the snacks or sweets come to them. Style a cart or two for cocktail hour, or wheel in an impressive dessert display for a real wow-factor. The possibilities are endless: oysters, charcuterie, specialty spirits, bonbons, granita. With the right set of wheels, you can even chase your guests down!
Sandeep Lodha- Founder & CEO, Weddingz.in says that a lot of change is being witnessed in terms of creativity when it comes to organizing Weddings in India. This summer couples are in an experimenting mode. They are opting for unique locations following unique themes with Bohemian and Go Green dominating the season. Instead of the typical grand chairs for couples, they are going for kitsch ideas like cycle rickshaws, marigold-laden bikes, painted wooden frames, photo booths etc. to make their wedding pics unique and memorable. The young generation has convinced their families to go digital when it comes to invitations, however unique ideas like pop of neon is a big hit this summer.
Hope these ideas will inspire you for your summer weddings.
