Summer Wedding Planning Ideas, Part II
The biggest wedding season of the year is June to September, so we’re now in full swing! If you have a wedding coming up later this summer, but haven’t worked out all the details, we’re here to lend a hand before you exchange matching wedding bands. Last week, we wrote about ideas for favors, cakes, and food. Today’s post will focus on our top summer wedding planning ideas for your wedding dress, decor, and flowers.
There are a few different trends for this season’s summer wedding dresses. One of them is the sophisticated keyhole back style seen in this dress from designer Jim Hjelm. Designers are loving this trend, so it shouldn’t be difficult to find a keyhole back dress in your price range. The lace-and-tulle combination is another trend this wedding season. This romantic style can be seen in this strapless wedding dress and this elaborate ball gown. One last look for this wedding season is a retro, Great Gatsby-inspired glamorous dress, such as this line from David’s Bridal.
Want some advice for wedding decor this summer? It’s all about bright, fun colors this wedding season. Using vibrant colors gives your wedding a whimsical feel. If bright colors aren’t your cup of tea, another trend this summer incorporating 1920s-esque decor into your wedding and reception (which would go perfectly with your Gatsby-inspired dress). Use pearls, art deco accents, and feathers to infuse your wedding with the glitz and glamour of the Jazz Age.
If you want your wedding decor to be bright, add a pop of color with your flowers. Peonies are one of the most popular flowers for weddings this summer. Peonies are romantic, but the bloom is only available for two months out of the year, so make sure you have a backup option if you plan to follow this trend. Cascades are also in this summer wedding season, which will give your wedding a more more traditional and formal look.
