Now that we’re into May, it’s time to look ahead to the fast approaching summer season. Trends in the wedding world change quickly. We’re here to help you adapt and make your event even more special. With that in mind, here are 5 of our favorite wedding trends for this summer.
#1 Relaxing Background Music
Rather than keeping the beat up all evening, try taking things down a notch during the meal or a cocktail hour. Stringed trios or quartets can add a great deal of ambiance to the occasion without drowning out conversation. Then the DJ can get everyone on their feet when it’s time to hit the dancefloor.
#2 Fruit Centerpieces
Many automatically associate summer with citrus flavors. Why not try to incorporate that idea by using lemons, limes, oranges, or grapefruits in your centerpieces. Citrus fruits add a bright splash of color and pair perfectly with other natural elements like wood.
#3 Seasonal Cake Flavors
Rather than going with a traditional white cake, the summer season gives you the opportunity to expand your cake’s flavor profile. Citrus and berries are both great summertime flavors that pair well with cake. Fresh whipped cream or buttercream are the perfect pairings for fruit flavors.
#4 Bright Colors
Bright colors are in, but that doesn’t mean your wedding needs to look like a rainbow. Select two colors and then add in an accent color to make a statement while maintaining visual harmony.
#5 Locally Sourced Foods
There’s one trend that seems to keep going from season to season, and that’s getting your meal from ingredients provided by local vendors. Of course, to do that right means partnering up with a catering company that already has a good relationship with local growers. In the San Jose and Bay areas, that means Caterman Catering.
