The Hottest Wedding Trends for Summer '16

Peak wedding season is finally here and we’ve been scoping out all of the top trends for Summer 2016 weddings to fill you in! From décor to music to food, keep reading to find out more about latest styles for summer ceremonies and receptions.


This summer the trending color schemes are falling in line with Pantone’s colors of the year, rose quartz and serenity. These calming pastels are perfect for the romantic vibe or whimsical bride, while still giving a pleasant accent of color to your nuptial decor. Mix one of the soft hues with shades of ivory or light gray for a serene look or keep it monochromatic and mix the rose quartz with rose gold details.


The trendiest summer wedding menus are mirroring the offerings from local farm-to-table restaurants. It’s all about sticking to what’s fresh and in season for your area! Every season has its specialties and during the summer we tend to crave refreshing salads and light bites that are simple, but tasty. Consider a seasonally inspired menu that has healthy food options and local specialties to give it a personal touch. Food stations are an easy way to give guests control over their own meals and an easy way to accommodate all different types of diets!


With all due respect to the ’80s, their throwback jams are slowly going out of style thanks to all of the millennials who are now taking their turn down the aisle. Music from the ’90s is the new throwback! This summer, brides and grooms will be hitting the dance floor to millennial faves like Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, Nirvana, NSYNC and TLC. Pick a playlist that your guests can sing along to, but most importantly make sure all of your favorite hits are included! Whether you go with a DJ or a live band, mix it up with fast and slow jams so that everybody can find a reason to get on the dance floor during the festivities. Music can make the night, so get up and lead the dance party!
