Now that we are post-Memorial Day, we are officially moving into summer weddings and as we finalize details with these couples, there are some amazing Summer Wedding Trends that we think you’ll be seeing a lot more of in the coming months! So far, these new trends have been nothing short of extravagant.
SIGNATURE DRINK STATIONS
How delicious and cool do these signature drinks look? Create a whiskey tasting vignette, a tequila bar, or have your signature cocktails prepped and ready to go for guests as they enter the cocktail area to avoid lines at the bar. Create a VIP experience for your guests from the moment they walk into cocktail hour! PS…for the extra touch, add some custom wooden drink stirrers or custom napkins (like these ones from our friends at Delovely Details)
MISMATCHED BRIDAL PARTY ATTIRE
This summer wedding trend has everyone looking their best – mismatched bridesmaid dresses are the way to go! Bridesmaids now have a say in what they wear on the special day, from color and length to style and fit. Some of the most popular mismatched styles have been different shades of a particular color, different colors of a particular pattern, or just flat out mismatched. No need to feel insecure while walking down the aisle in a dress that doesn’t complement you best, the choice is now yours! This trend is not only fashion-forward, it totally takes the stress away from trying to make the color and style of every bridesmaid dress match perfectly to every body style (not to mention, you’ll finally have a bridesmaid dress that you can wear at places other than a wedding).
Surprisingly this trend has also been popular for the groomsmen too. You can expect to see groomsmen this summer wearing more patterned and mismatched ties (like these from The Grunion Run), or some off-beat, stylish derivative of the groom’s suit. For now, the days of wedding uniformity are out — but then again, who ever really encouraged blending in?
When thinking of summer desserts for your wedding you want something interactive for guests! Custom, decorative boards, like the one we snapped on our phone pictured above, can turn your food into an artistic statement. One of Couture’s own, Karina, turned her dessert station into a work of art. The famed Krispy Kreme donuts hung on pegs and decorated on cake stands. Food walls are a great way to display all of your favorite summer treats and allow guest to take the treats at their leisure!
Whatever trend you connect to most, let it be stress-free and the perfect, unique reflection of you as a couple!
