Summer wedding trends

Summer wedding trends

by Niamh Bartley

Marble everywhere
This trend is definitely emerging more and more frequently in recent times and we can see it being a staple look in summer weddings this year. There is so much you can do with marbling from your invitations to your cake the possibilities are endless. It also looks lovely paired with metallic like rose gold and copper, you could have marbled invitations with copper writing if you were thinking of using this trend on your big day.

Balloons are becoming huge in weddings this year! They are a great way of portraying a very bright and colourful colour scheme rather than using flowers. Another option that is also very popular is combining flowers and balloons in your centrepieces and to decorate your venue. You could even have a huge string of balloons along top table surrounded by flowers.

Colourful cakes
Naked and rustic wedding cakes are still in, however the new trend is definitely whimsical colourful cakes. From unicorns to fairies, anything can inspire your colourful wedding cake and we love it. Decorate a classic wedding cake with colourful candy floss and sweets or just go all out and have a colourful cake decorated with colourful macarons and your favourite treats.

Late night snacks
We all love the food at weddings and a big trend in recent times will live on this year stronger than ever. Late night food is bigger and better than before, a lot of venues are open to your ideas when it comes to this part of the night and some will even throw in the food for free. Tayto sandwich bars and cheese platters are both trends we’ve seen recently and they are set to live on this summer.

Charitable donations
A lot of couples have chosen to give some of their budget to deserving charities and this trend is set to live on for years. It’s truly a timeless gesture and it will make your wedding feel more worthwhile. Another option is to encourage guests to make charitable donations in your name in lieu of wedding gifts, that’s a lot more extreme but very effective if you pick one charity and direct your guests towards it.
