Summer Weddings & Trends



Summer Weddings

Summer weddings suggest a myriad of ideas and thoughts. Many aspects of this great occasion seek for attention such as colours, clothes, food & drink, floral decorations and furniture to name but a few.

The summer months from June to September lend themselves to a palette of soft pastel shades. One of summer 2015 biggest trends is the colour combination of Peach and Periwinkle Blue. The smoky blue tone of Periwinkle balances the delicate tones of peach and result in a striking colour statement.   These shades can be used throughout the wedding in bridesmaid’s dresses, flowers, favours and theming of the wedding venue.

“Weddings 101” tell us that “Round tables are sociable and long tables are just simply the worst idea’.  However for 2015 one of the biggest wedding trends is family style dining.  Round tables allow you to see and interact with all guests at the table and it can look lovely in many different venues. Nevertheless, gazing out onto long super stylish decorated tables can provide a real wow factor that is unusual for many summer weddings. Family service at weddings can bring guests together and simulates conversations at the table.

Flowers used imaginatively will enhance the table arrangements at your wedding venue and will also further utilise the colour scheme as chosen by you.

Summer drinks can include anything from cordials, cocktails and sparkling wine. A popular 2015 trend is the American idea of combining canapés and cocktails. If your chosen Wedding venue has an outdoor space such as a garden space then it can become a great asset to your reception. This will allow guests to meet and be available for outside photographs prior to the Wedding Breakfast. Your menu can include items of your choice and locally sourced ingredients provided by your wedding caterer.

In the modern day social media world, why not create an Instagram page for your summer wedding accompanied by a personalised hashtag. This can then be included in all your summer wedding stationary, from ‘save the date’ to ‘invitations’ to ‘names cards’ and ‘table plan’.

Another trend for summer weddings in 2015 is to match the correct furniture to the venue and space available. Outdoor garden spaces at unique venues can be utilised successfully with a selection of furniture creating a focal point and a relaxed atmosphere.
