Summer Wedding Trends
Posted on: May 22, 2015
This year’s summer wedding trends are all about the whimsical and worldly. Vintage-inspired staples (hello macramé) and splashes of global décor (think repurposed suitcases) meet down-to-earth color palettes and all things rustic. Invitations and flower arrangements get the earthy treatment with pale pinks and greens tied up with burlap, lace and hemp. Trendy bouquets will be overflowing with pastel peonies and sweet succulents for a new way to honor the eclectic. This season’s weddings will be classic yet free-spirited with many personalized touches.
Although design, dress and décor trends lean more towards the simple and pastoral this summer, wedding day food trends are veering the other way. More brides and grooms are opting for unique, artisanal and foodie-inspired dishes, like amazing chocolate sculptures and appetizers inspired by local culture (Hampshire House has Massachusetts-inspired dishes like New England clam chowder and Boston Bibb lettuce salads for Boston-focused brides). Other popular food trends include lemonade bars, s’mores stations, cake pops, pie pops and even sushi or seafood stations.
