For most women and men, getting married is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It’s a day that’s meant to come from the pages of a fairytale book. That being said, it needs to be perfect. But if you’ve ever planned a party, you know that it can be stressful and difficult to execute. With hundreds of details to account for, like decor, food, budgeting and guests, it can seem like there’s far too many things to keep track of. If you are looking to have a summer dream wedding, this can be confounded with issues such as weather, location, and — most of all — theme. Luckily, we’ve provided you with three of the hottest wedding trends for summer 2016 that will help your dream wedding go off without a hitch.
For classic brides and grooms who feel they were born in the wrong century, a vintage wedding is perfect for your tastes and sensibilities. This wedding theme is not only simple and elegant, but it’s inexpensive. This makes hosting a large wedding a financially feasible task. For a vintage wedding, what you need is antique decor paired with some embellishments here and there.
For a vintage wedding, decor can be simple and understated. If hosting a backyard party, tent rentals with basic linen rentals can provide a baseline for a wonderful soiree. Go to your local flea market or craft store to find the proper accoutrements for tablescapes and other decor. As many as 93% of brides use the Internet to plan their wedding, so if you’re stumped for ideas, don’t hesitate to hit the Pinterest boards for more ideas about these wedding trends!
There’s no better decor for a wedding than the wonderful outdoors. In fact, the beauty of the outdoors can help decrease the overall cost of the wedding! Think about it. Since country weddings are typically outdoors, they are relatively low-maintenance. For added elegance and flair, string bulb lights around tree trunks, and add colorful signs. Use creative objects in the wedding such as bales of hay for ceremony seating. Just don’t forget to rent an outdoor dance floor!
With the sand between your toes and the sun setting on the horizon, there’s nothing quite as romantic as a beach wedding. However, keep in mind that beach weddings come with a different set of rules. If you’re renting a tent (which is a must in the case of inclement weather), make sure you get it from a trusted rental company that will provide you with a tent that can withstand potential wind!
