Heady summer days (we’re getting there, honest!), Pimms on the lawn, and ice cream herald the summer wedding season and each season we see new and exciting trends come forth. On my travels through wedding world, I’ve come across some gorgeous trends and my summer wedding inspiration ideas are; leafy green botanicals, kitsch colour pops and edgy geometric shapes. Trawling through Pinterest to the point I felt I was organising my own wedding (I’m not btw), it’s clear to see that styling your wedding decor and getting the ‘look’ just right is very important…it’s not the be all and end all but there’s nothing wrong with wanting things to look pretty, right?
Luscious leafy greens add a beautiful ethereal outdoorsy theme to your wedding. A kind of ‘new’ rustic using herbs, cacti, palms, mosses and succulents in everything from the bride’s bouquet, to plant pot wedding favours to edible flowers and fragrant herbs at the buffet table.
And what about beautiful, bold, bright colour pops? Just hints here and there can make a real statement. Take a look at Jam and Tea’s retro props or yummy sprinkle laden doughnuts for ideas of where to add colour. When it comes to bridesmaids, I just love the idea of muted tone dresses twinned with colour pop shoes and not forgetting the groomsmen…funky bright ties and button holes work a treat.
Moving on to geometrics, I adore Jam and Tea’s terrariums. Contrasting the hard edges of a terrarium and geometric shapes against luscious soft greenery and blooms adds another dimension to wedding decor. A funky mix of postmodern design, retro woodwork and beautiful botany….what’s not to love!
Happy Summer Wedding Season everyone!
