The Wedding Palette – Colors & Patterns of Summer

Summer is in the air and what better to inspire our summer brides than with some lovely colors, designs, and patterns of the season! Whether your wedding is just around the corner or you are a year away, perfecting the little details for the season your wedding is in is key! Picking pops of color or exciting designs can be done at the very beginning of the planning process and made to be focal points of your day OR at the very end to add the little details that sometimes can stand out the most!

But regardless of your timing, picking the rights colors and patterns especially if you are getting married in such a vibrant season (summer) is key! So today we’re using bold designs and colors to emphasize the importance of these little details! I can’t get over how amazing the bright patterns used on a table runner for the signature drinks or a table cloth (both below) are for a wedding. Patterns are so underused at weddings that it’s refreshing to see such bold colors and designs used at the same time! Blend patterns like these with the colors in them… reds, yellows and oranges to freshen up your wedding and bring even the small details like your drink bar to life!

Trend Alert: The Red Wedding Dress

Trending for the summer and fall in the bridal world? The red wedding dress! Now I use the words “trend alert” lightly with this one because little do most of us realize but the red wedding dress has been around for quite some time now, and it’s still very popular in certain cultures today (think Chinese and Indian brides). So before you think this trend is just a thing of the moment, remember that in ancient Roman times women chose red dresses to ward off evil spirits.. so yes the red dress is most definitely a trend for now, but ladies… it’s always been around!

I am obsessed with ALL of these red wedding dresses. They are all so special and unique they are unmatched! Starting with the color, red is so bold who cares what the rest of the dress looks like when you’re wearing such a fabulous color! But, as if the designers don’t realize how perfect red is, they still make their gowns exquisite in detail from fabric to fit. A special mention to the Vera Wang gowns from her Spring 2013 collection (see front and back looks for two of my favorites below). Vera Wang is such an iconic designer and for her to design such a bold collection using red proves that the red dress is definitely here to stay!
