With summer in full swing, the bells are ringing as the wedding boom of 2022 continues, following record breaking numbers of postponements and cancellations due to the pandemic. Easing COVID restrictions are allowing couples to have bigger celebrations and ditch the intimate guest list.

At the height of the pandemic, couples were finding inventive ways to make their weddings days highly personalized, creative, and fun, through unique courthouse weddings and elopements. This year, we are seeing couples continue to push away from tradition and design their wedding days in out of the box ways.

Keep reading for some of our current favorite summer wedding trends!

Bridgerton Inspired Weddings

Netflix's hit Bridgerton has taken the world by storm, and that includes the wedding industry! This British inspired aesthetic is characterized by tones of blue, puffy sleeves, antique accessories, and a regal amount of florals. We loved this recency romance trend so much, we inspired a styled shoot from it!

Unusual Wedding Attire

The pandemic trend of micro-weddings and elopements gave rise to a trend of breaking the mold and celebrating each couple's individuality. Brides and groom everywhere are ditching tradition and stepping out in what makes them feel the most confident and themselves.

From short dresses to bridal pantsuits to colorful and patterned gowns, brides are making their own rules. It's your day, so express yourself in whatever way makes you the happiest!

Specialty Vendors

With weddings back to being big and an importance being placed on an elevated guest experience, couples are seeking more when it comes to specialty vendors. We're seeing a love for live painters, food trucks, and more! There are a million ways to make your day special to you, and couples are certainly finding vendors to fit their visions and create an unforgettable experience.

Summer Cocktails

Speaking of specialty vendors, a specialty cocktail is a perfect way to add a fun personalized detail to your wedding. For your summer garden wedding, a raspberry mojito is a perfect way to cool off your guests. Perhaps an Aperol spritz will elevate your dreamy Italian summer inspired wedding. Or take it a step further with refreshing frozen ice pops!

Bold and Vibrant Color

While we love a muted or pastel color palette, there's something so lively and fun about a bright and vibrant color palette! Bright wedding colors have always been a great option for couples having a tropical beach weddings, but couples are extending the use of these bright colors to make bold statements at their summer weddings. We are seeing bold uses of oranges, pinks, and yellows!

Summers are always a magical time for weddings, and these trends are no exception to the fun! Trends are always changing, and we can't wait to see what the fall season has in store for us.
