Summer’s warm evenings, sunny weather and longer days make it couples’ favorite season for weddings. This summer’s wedding trends are filled with bright colors and bohemian vibes, perfect for carefree couples who can’t wait to celebrate with friends and family. Add these trends to your summer reception for a wedding that isn’t too fussy.
Reflect the beautiful weather with bright colors throughout your décor. Stick to one or two colors in your florals, centerpieces and venue to avoid turning your sunny palette into an overwhelming rainbow. Poppy red, sage, lemon yellow and old glory blue are all beautiful options.
Substitute traditional black for a rich navy to soften your laidback summer ceremony. Navy can be paired with almost any bright color you like for a preppy color palette that isn’t too pretentious.
The quintessential carefree theme, a Bohemian wedding is focused on the special day rather than traditional details. Mix and match flowers, bridesmaids’ dresses and tableware create a laidback canvas for details like crochet, gold accents and rustic desserts to shine.
With an almost endless number of blooms in season, summer is the perfect time for a big, cascading bridal bouquet. Add plenty of greenery to a collection of wildflowers, sunflowers, daisies or cosmos. Florists will know exactly what is in season during the weeks leading up to your wedding, so trust your professional’s opinion on the details of your bouquet.
No matter if your venue is downtown or deep in the forest, you can add woodsy details to your reception. This trend includes lots of greenery, wooden signage and centerpiece details, lanterns and a campfire.
A Farm to Table Menu
Incorporate local produce into your menu with a caterer or venue that specializes in working with nearby farms. Summertime in New York is ideal for fresh beans, broccoli, carrots, lettuce, summer squash and tomatoes. A fresh fruit pie or tart is also a wonderful way to incorporate a farm to table mindset.
