Regardless of the time of year, when asked to think about weddings ‘the Dress’ is surely high on the list of priorities for any Bride, and the summer season offers fantastic inspiration and lends itself perfectly to wedding attire.
Annual wedding trends often dictate bridal gowns, but timeless styles that are perfect for warmer weather are also staples in any Bridal boutique. From delicate, sheer detailing to elegant, flowing fabrics, tea length hemlines and even floral applique – summer really does offer so much inspiration that will guarantee pure style and sophistication on your big day.
It’s not just the ladies that can draw on the season for ideas for their wedding wardrobe; the gents can incorporate brighter colours and lighter fabrics to be stylish and comfortable such as light blue, grey & beige.
It’s often the little details that can transform a wedding – the personal touches that encompass the personalities of the happy couple and make the day truly unique and special.
Gaining inspiration from the season can help tie everything together and create a natural flow to your wedding. Whether it’s a specific theme such as rustic, shabby chic décor with pretty florals & delicious naked cakes with fresh, seasonal fruits or a Bohemian, beach style of neutral tones, beautiful textures & gorgeous greenery. Even a broader colour scheme of bright summer shades can be used as a basis to work and build from to co-ordinate everything perfectly.
