Summer Sorbet Inspiration

With all this rainy weather, we wanted to brighten your summer wedding inspiration with sweet sorbet colors.

These fun colors add the perfect pop to a summer wedding and there are many ways you can incorporate them into your design.

Add a pop of color to your wedding stationery with shades of sorbet.

Letting your bridal party choose a different shade in the sorbet family is a fun way to keep them coordinated while showing their individual personalities. Adding a pattern could make for a whimsical bridal party as well!

Drinks that match the decor are a fun way to spread the theme to every area of your big day.

Bright flowers paired with monochromatic vases and decor are an excellent way to add a summery, but not juvenile feel to your wedding design.

Bold & Bright

Today we are here to share Summer Wedding Trends from the bridal team over at Martha Stuart weddings. From bold accents, minimalist sheath to hot pink, with over 40 themes, you are sure to find the perfect theme for your celebration! Here are some of our favorites:

 

Two Tone Table

Image

 

Bold accents pop against white table, linens, chairs and plates. The inspiration comes from the sheet of wrapping paper at the center that ties everything together. Try out this theme with a bright pop of color like cobalt blue or pink for an extra feel of summer.

 

A Chic Setting

Image

 

Bowls with floating candles, peonies, roses, and ranunculuses dot a boldly striped runner. The neutral linens give the eye a place to rest. This theme is perfect for a summer night celebration. Choose soft/neutral colors for the perfect chic setting.

 

Cake For One

Image

 

Try out this fun idea for your summer celebration. These monogrammed groom’s cakes were given to all of the wedding. The cakes were tucked into boxes and bounded with bows and tied into the wedding theme of purple.

 

Basket Of Berries

Image

 

This cake represents summer! Early summer is the best time to choose a cake like this one- brimming with a fresh and varied assortment of the season’s best berries.

 

The Frill Of It

Image

 

Get creative with this DIY- Cherry poppies don’t have to be in season for you to make this fondant, covered cake. Fashion crepe-paper ones yourself or look for similar ones at the craft store. The flowers pop against the neutral color of the cake for a fun summer feel!

 

Flower-Wrapped Favors

Image

 

Wrap favors in brightly colored paper and top them off with a flower- a low-cost alternative to the real thing. Pops of color add excitement to the favors and offer the perfect touch to your summer celebration.
