Summer Wedding Trends 2014

The summer is the most popular season in the wedding calendar, with bride-to-be’s seeking the lighter months and best weather for their perfect day. The summer months brings colour and life, making it the perfect season to say ‘I do’. From artificial flowers to hand-made invites, this years’ wedding trends are more colourful and romantic than ever before:

Yellow is far from mellow - Yellow is the on-trend colour for summer 2014, with more brides choosing this sunny shade for their bridesmaids. Yellow is also a very popular colour when it comes to wedding flowers, with yellow roses and peonies being top choice for summer bouquets. Off white/ivory and cream shades also remain popular as ever and can easily be mixed with other flowers to add your own favourite colour if yellow isn’t quite your thing.

Flower garlands - summer weddings call for Mediterranean inspired décor; think oranges and lemons being strung across trellises and artificial grape vines adorning marquee doorways. Summer weddings are all about natural colours and using the best of Mother Nature’s decorations. Use artificial ivy and greenery if the Mediterranean is slightly out of reach for your big day, and embrace the feel of summer.

Our tip: Mix floral and greenery garlands to give a denser, lusher coverage, but where possible augment existing (real) plants with artificial flowers to blur the lines and make your budget go further.

Festivals are best - A summer wedding screams outdoor adventure, with more wedding receptions going back to nature. From festival style stages, live bands and beer pumps to bare-foot brides, it seems the festival approach for weddings is very popular for summer 2014. If you and your husband-to-be are laid-back music lovers, why not incorporate your love for music and each other with a festival-style wedding, a la Kate Moss, with a marquee and plenty of bunting! For a more toned down familiar affair, a nice barbecue will leave your guests remembering the day!

Pretty petals on cakes – Flowers are no longer just an afterthought necessity for weddings now, they take centre stage as decorative statements on the cake. Why not opt to decorate a simple cake with bright petals and artificial flowers for that added touch of summer on a classic white cake. The more natural looking the better, to get that real earthy feel of nature that comes from long summer evenings outside.

Tip: If you’ve bought extra materials to customise your artificial flowers, cut up the left overs into petals for use around the venue if not on the cake.

Floral crowns - Embrace your inner hippy on your wedding day and choose to rock flowers with pride. Floral head bands are all the rage for this summer, with brides opting to wear their own flower accessories on their head. If a full floral crown is too much for you, why not try a couple of smaller artificial flowers within your hair style for a touch of nature on you big day.

With all the colour and feel of nature that Summer brings, it’s no wonder summer weddings are the most popular amongst brides! Stay on-trend this summer with these suggestions and enjoy your big day in style!
