Planning a Summer Wedding? Try These Gorgeous Trends.
Trend 1: Bold Colors
Say goodbye to basic blush and taupe! Bold and bright colors are stealing the show this summer. Daring colors like mustard yellow or fuchsia will leave a lasting impression with your guests. For a refreshing spin, try adding some green to the mix. The 2017 color of the year is “Greenery,” which is described as the symbol of new beginnings and perfect for weddings.
Go ahead and get creative. You can mix and match a few colors to create the perfect combination you’re looking for. Don’t forget the invitations, tables, decorations, and desserts—it all can go with your color scheme.
Trend 2: Textured Linens
The right linens can make your whole table-setting really pop. Vibrant and patterned fabrics are all the rage this summer. Forget polyester—and instead opt for layered fabrics. Think romantic overlays, or textured fabrics like sequins or velvet. These can all add extra dimension and character to your table-scape. Your guests will swoon over the entire look!
Trend 3: Farm Tables
Nothing says romance more than a beautifully decorated farm table. With the right linens and table-wear, these rustic tables make the perfect seating arrangements for guests. Whether you want a vintage look or are going for a more classic feel, you can mix and match sizes to add variety to your seating arrangements. This year, couples are opting for a mix of rectangular and round tables, opposed to sticking with just one style.
Trend 4: Cross-back Chairs
Comfortable seating is a must at any wedding! After dancing the night away, guests will want to kick back with a cocktail and good conversation. That’s where dark wood, cross-back chairs come in. These chairs are super popular for rustic, outdoor weddings. Want to add a touch of glam? Try these ghost chairs, which give off a modern-industrial vibe.
Trend 5: Metallic Flatware
A great wedding is all about the details. Don’t skimp on table-wear by opting for basic silver. Metallic flatware, such as rose gold, copper, gold, matte black, can add a creative touch to your table. Feeling extra creative? Add a pop of color with colorful glasses and goblets, or use mismatched tableware to create an element of surprise for guests. These are all fashionable ways to personalize your wedding, while following the latest summer wedding trends.
Bonus wedding planning tip! Wedding trends can be fun. However, brides and grooms should always keep in mind the event space they are planning. For example, renting farm tables for an architecturally contemporary wedding would not make as much sense as renting farm tables for a woodland, outdoor wedding.
