4 Fun Trends for Summer Weddings

With summer upon us in full swing, we’re loving all the fabulous summer wedding trends evolving as the season wears on. If you’re planning a summer wedding, you may want to take a few cues from these stunning weddings as you work on your own! To get you inspired for your own joyful summer “I do,” here are four of our favorite warm weather bridal trends to incorporate into your wedding. 



A-frame Ceremony Arches

Modern, geometric, and boho, the A-frame arch gives your ceremony a unique look. You can still decorate the A-frame with flowers like you would a traditional arch, but this shape makes more of a bold statement. Not to mention, if you’re getting married outside, the A-frame mirrors the shape of the Blue Ridge in your backdrop, perfectly bringing a touch of Shenandoah into your ceremony. 



Bright & Bold Florals

What better way to celebrate summer than with bright, fun colors at your wedding? We love the way the warm weather lets you play with bold shades, especially in your flowers. With tropical blooms in season, why not add a touch of hot pink or bright orange into your bridal bouquet? We love this Celebration bride’s joyful pink bouquet, perfect for summer. 



Dresses You Can Dance In

With the Virginia heat, staying cool at your summer wedding is a must. We love when brides opt for light, breezy styles that are comfortable enough to dance the night away—after all, what’s a wedding if not a celebration! Choosing a dress you can dance in ensures you’ll have fun at your reception, rather than worrying about adjusting your dress or sweating your makeup off. 



Bridgerton/Cottagecore Vibes

We weren’t the only ones taken by the gorgeous Regency styles of Bridgerton this winter—plenty of brides took cues from the gorgeous balls and tea parties when planning their own wedding decor. The combination of Bridgerton with the surge in cottagecore aesthetic inspiration has created a gorgeous, garden-like wedding decor style we can’t get enough of.
