FIVE Summer Wedding Trends & Wedding Ideas


Summer is here in Minneapolis, love is in the air, and that means wedding season is upon us. It’s no wonder that summer is the perfect time to get married. With the gorgeous Minnesota weather, a laid-back vibe, and easier weather to travel in, who wouldn’t want to get married in the summer? To help you make your big day unforgettable, here are FIVE top wedding trends to try:

1. Moody Color Palette

Go bold and try your hand at a darker, more striking color palette. Instead of blushes and pastels, try gem shades like emerald and amethyst along with white and black as your neutrals.

2. Statement Wedding Cakes

Make a statement with the single most important dessert at your wedding, the wedding cake. Choose bold shades, lots of layers, interesting shapes, and designs to really ‘wow’ your guests. Just as important, choose flavors on the inside that are traditional with a spin. That way, the last thing your guests eat at your wedding celebration will be extremely memorable.

3. Flower Installations

Hanging flower chandeliers, floral backdrops, and the like are all hot in Minneapolis this wedding season. Inspired by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, it just can’t get better than daring floral decor.

4. Circle Ceremonies

Instead of the traditional layout of rows and rows of chairs, try a circle or semicircle of chairs to help your guests feel more involved in the ceremony. Changing the setup is a great way to think outside of the box while also putting more personality into your ceremony.

5. Velvet

If there is one fabric that is simply irresistible, it is velvet. Create texture and luxuriousness by using velvet in decor elements. Use velvet tablecloths, choose velvet bridesmaid dresses, or have velvet napkin rings. Whatever you decide, using this specialty linen will pay out in spades when it comes to the visual impact of your wedding.
