Wedding Trends this Summer

shutterstock_143579107Summer is a wonderful time for weddings. Between the lovely weather, the festive and relaxed atmosphere that tends to permeate most people, and the incredible summer colors that look absolutely incredible, it is no wonder that countless couples choose this time of year to tie the knot.

Those looking to find ways to make their special days even more modern and unique, investigating recent trends can be a fantastic way to get some ideas. These newer fashions can help add a special twist to the day, making this wedding and reception one people will be speaking about for years to come.

At Gainan’s Flowers, we love helping couples learn more about some of the latest trends to find some that will fit well with their upcoming ceremonies. Here are a few that we have found to be spectacular for summer 2015 weddings.

Going Green

We are not talking about wedding colors, but rather being eco-friendly. The ideals of being green have influenced nearly every aspect of modern life – including wedding planning. For many couples, this means finding decorations that look spectacular while also being earth friendly. For example, instead of using cut flowers, they use potted plants on their reception tables. These blooming flowers will add delightful color to the room, can serve as party favors, and will continue to please guests for months and years to come after the ceremony. We find potted plants like our garden of reds and blues in a rustic basket to be perfect.

Think bold

Summer and pastels might go together, but they are quickly becoming just one color palette available. Summer brides have begun to use deeper, richer colors in their weddings, and we think that the final look is wonderful. For example, consider using some lush corsages and boutonnieres that use beautiful colors, such as a rich purple carnation.

Jewels in bouquets

Brides have increasingly been using jewels such as rhinestones in their bridal bouquets. Some have even been making bouquets made almost entirely out of jewels rather than flowers. Others prefer to keep the jewels as accents on their bouquets. Either way to look tends to be extraordinary.

For couples preparing for their wedding way, planning the ceremony down to the details can be exciting and stressful. Make the process fun and personal by finding new elements to incorporate that will make the day more about who the couple is and what they want their special day to mean. Consider our above ideas to get started.
