As the weather gets warmer, love is in the air! If you’re planning to tie the knot this summer, you’ll want to hear about the top summer wedding trends for 2023. From floral accents to poppy Barbiecore weddings, there are a ton of fantastic ways to express yourself and your love!
One of the most popular summer wedding ideas is to have a garden party. Picture a tea party—wedding style. Garden parties put a big emphasis on florals, pastels, and vintage decor. When you want to make this theme truly spectacular, choose a venue with a beautiful garden or greenhouse and decorate with lush florals, delicate china, and vintage furniture.
If you’re looking for a dress to go along with the garden party theme, you’ll want to find flowy, romantic dresses with delicate lace and floral accents. Sheer fabrics and open backs are also perfect options to tie your gown to the trend! Consider a tea-length dress when you want to show off your strappy sandals or cute heels.
When it comes to planning a summer wedding, florals are the star of the show. Expect to see floral prints, accessories, and fresh flowers everywhere from the invitations to the attire. Bold, bright floral patterns are particularly on-trend this season. Think of florals as a way to add pops of color and create a lush and romantic atmosphere, no matter your venue!
A newly emerging trend is the “Barbiecore” wedding. This trend is all about embracing bold and bright colors, patterns, and textures. You can’t go wrong with a little pink—or in this case, a lot of pink! Embrace pops of color in unexpected places, like the cake or even your dress. If you’re looking for a way to design a fun, playful wedding, Barbiecore will be exactly what you want.
Micro weddings are still trending in 2023—super small, intimate events that bring you and your closest family and friends together. You can embrace this intimacy by choosing a meaningful venue or a personalized menu. Some couples want to focus on the experience rather than the spectacle—micro weddings are the perfect opportunity.
Have vintage and retro vibes ever gone out of style? Think of Gatsby, the 70s, and Art Deco. Dive into nostalgia with neon signs, a classic car, a vintage dress, or even a jazz band! Use bold colors and classic patterns, and don’t be afraid to mix and match.
Now that you know the top summer wedding trends for 2023, it’s time to start planning your big day. Whether you choose one of these ideas or develop your own, there’s a trend to fit every couple’s style. Remember, the wedding is a celebration of your love—don’t be afraid to let your personality shine through!
