June is nearly here and so is the summer wedding season! While there is certainly no rule against a formal, traditional wedding, the relaxed atmosphere of the summer months really invites a more laidback style and attitude. If you’re planning a summer wedding – or any summertime special event – don’t forget to incorporate these white-hot trends.
Bright, Sassy Colors
It might be a nice day for a white wedding, but summer is the time to try new things. The colors of the summer season are over-the-top: rich pinks and fuchsias, fresh citrus colors, and bold turquoise. Incorporate these colors in your place settings and table decors, bridesmaids dresses, and flowers.
Laidback, In Style
By laidback we don’t mean torn jeans and dirty sneakers. We do mean:
- For wedding dress, consider a convertible design that will allow you to enjoy the dancing and fun of the reception while staying cool
- For bridesmaid dresses, consider open backs, gauzy fabrics, and shorter hemlines
- For menswear, consider light-colored linens and cotton fabrics
Invigorate Cocktail Hour
Stuffy old cocktails are boring. Rethink your cocktail hour in terms of your guests and your overall theme. Antiqued or galvanized metal tubs filled with ice and cold local beers might be a great option for a country chic or alternative themed wedding. Bright, fruity pitchers of sangria or wine smoothies (that’s custom cocktails made with white wine or rose and blended with fresh summer fruit).
Summer-ize the Menu
Consider lightening up the menu with citrus flavors, colorful salads and fruits, and seafood. Alternately, keep the meat-eaters happy with grilled or barbecue fare catered by your favorite local BBQ joint.
