5 Hot Design Trends to Incorporate into Your Summer Wedding
Posted on 20th June 2017
When it comes to wedding planning, no one wants a look that appears dated or is a carbon copy of everyone else's. To ensure a celebration with style, the best bet is to turn to the freshest trends and put your personal imprint on them. Lucky for you, DesignBundles is ahead of the trend curve, so you won't have to spend time searching out design elements, no matter how brand-new your style idea might be. Here are five of the hottest of-the-moment design trends you can incorporate into your summer wedding.
Chosen as the 2017 Color of the Year by the Pantone Color Institute, Greenery symbolizes new beginnings, making it a perfect choice for weddings. Bowers of botanicals look elegant and expensive but don't have to be -- even simple sprays of ivy bring a lush look to a ceremony. Create invitations to match the color motif with the Green Japanese Watercolor pattern collection or go more literal with the hand-painted flora of the Greenery clip art bundle. Succulents make for a lovely wedding motif, and you can distribute live cuttings as favors.
All the trendiest wedding sites agree that color is making a comeback this year. Whether you're planning a beach or backyard wedding, a tropical theme is one of the simplest ways to incorporate bursts of color. Browse our tropical-themed design elements to see just how diverse tropical colors and be can be, from bold, bright palettes to lovely muted shades. Hawaiian-inspired fonts keep the theme going on invites, menus and place settings.
Texture is just as important as color in design, which may explain why marble is such a hot wedding choice this year. Marble lends a classic elegance to stationery, invitations and place settings, and the motif can easily be picked up in other wedding elements (marbleized wedding cake, anyone?). A wide choice of marble-textured papers means you can add both texture and color to personalize your wedding. Keep it classic with natural marble or up the elegance with metallics.
The dreamy shades of watercolor paintings lend a lovely fairy-tale palette to weddings, so it's no wonder some brides are now opting to design their entire event around a watercolor theme, from the shades of the bridesmaids dresses and cake to watercolor invitations with brush-stroke lettering. Use floral watercolor designs to stamp place cards, favor tags or envelopes filled with rose petals to scatter. Match specific flowers in the design to the live flowers in your ceremony, or vice versa.
We couldn't be more pleased that paper is one of the hottest wedding trends of the season. Celebrity wedding planner David Tutera says it's because "there's so many interesting things you can do," and adds, "People are sort of surprised, like oh my gosh, look what you can do with paper." It's true! Think beyond invitations and imagine how personalized you can make your wedding with paper boutonnieres, cut-paper bunting or hanging elements. There's a paper for every style or interest. Need some inspiring ideas? Consider gorgeous antique book textures, classic nautical designs or even quirky unicorns.
The real beauty of these hot new wedding trends is that any of them can be incorporated into your own custom theme. Planning a garden tea party wedding? Incorporate watercolor accents or send greenery invites. A black-and-white color scheme for your reception can use marbleized place settings. The choice is all yours.
