Wedding Decor Trends for Summer

No one can resist a beautiful summer wedding. With golden warm weather, the outdoors becomes the perfect setting to say "I do."

If you and your partner love romance, you shouldn't miss out on the opportunity to recite your vows near the water, where its peace and tranquility create a truly magical moment.

Summer weddings allow you to do just that. Get married surrounded by nature and let the four elements — water, earth, fire, and air— be part of the celebration.

If you want to have a spectacular wedding this time of year, we're here to discuss what's in style for wedding decorations in summer 2022.


Minimalist Decoration

Minimalist décor will be a big trend in 2022, especially for the summertime.

With the heat, less is more, and honestly, better. The idea is to not go overboard with the decoration and instead opt for a natural backdrop with incredible views. Outdoor weddings are perfect as they allow the natural elements of your surroundings to be part of the decoration.

Earth Tones

Continuing with the theme of nature, this year, we're saying goodbye to the traditional pastels that have adorned summer weddings in the past. And taking their place are color palettes focusing on earthy, natural tones for décor.

You can incorporate these styles and textures into your wedding decoration with terracotta pots and table linens in neutral colors such as ivory, soft brown, gray, and even amber.

Rustic Flowers Arrangements

As for flowers for the big day, options in neutral tones such as browns, caramels, and ivories will be really popular, as they tend to make anything look elegant and blend well with earth tones. Ditch the classic white and pink!

Dried flowers will also make a major appearance this summer, as they bring a unique rustic look that makes any wedding look chic.

Local Art and Crafts

Handicrafts? Yes! A popular trend in destination weddings is to incorporate the local traditions and cultures of the area. This has been seen in the past in fashion and cuisine, so why not wedding décor?

If you're going to have a destination wedding, be sure to ask your wedding planner to include local crafts into the decorations. You'll see that they'll look absolutely stunning, and all your guests will be impressed!

Pendant Lights, Fairy Lights, and Candles

We cannot stress this enough: lighting is important! The lights bring a certain atmosphere to the wedding, and can create romantic, fairy-tale settings depending on which you choose.

In summer, we'll be seeing hanging lights, twinkle lights, and candles to set the mood. There's also going to be a trend of using wireless lighting so that the lights blend smoothly with the rest of the decorations.

Bridgerton-Inspired Weddings 

Bridgerton has taken the world by storm this year, including the topic of weddings. 

The elegant and romantic flair of the show's Victorian design is one of the top trends that we'll see at weddings, not only in the summer, but year-round!
