Summer is truly the season of love and weddings! The weather is gorgeous and the flowers are in full bloom, so it's no wonder that so many couples are choosing summer as the perfect time to get married. If you're planning a summer wedding, you'll want to make sure your decor is on point with the latest trends. Here are some of our favorite summer wedding trends for 2023 and beyond that you won't want to miss! 

Statement Lighting

Lighting makes all the difference and is key to setting the mood for your wedding reception. In 2023, we're seeing a trend towards statement lighting, such as chandeliers, garlands, or string lights, to add a touch of glamour to your decor. The lighting effects of LED garlands, candles, strobe lights, backdrop curtains and accents create a timeless magical atmosphere for wedding receptions and ceremonies. 

Having an engagement party? DIY your own photo booth backdrop with an LED Neon Sign and your photos will be perfectly social-media ready! The best part is you can reuse these lights in your wedding decor or your home after the celebrations are over! Have fun with it and see where your imagination takes you!

Non-Traditional Venues

Non-Traditional Venues and Entertainment

Couples are moving away from traditional wedding venues, like ballrooms, and opting for unique locations, such as barns or gardens. These venues add a personal touch to the wedding and provide a picturesque backdrop for photos. 

Live entertainment is a trend that's sure to make your wedding reception so much more memorable. Consider hiring a live band or a DJ to get the party started and keep the dance floor packed all night long. Worried about budget? Hiring a live band might not be outside of your budget, especially if they are local to the area. If your venue doesn't allow a DJ, then a custom Spotify plalist might be perfect for an intimate gathering! Ask your guests to suggest songs to add to the plalist in the invite so everyone has something to dance to!

Bright Colors

While muted pastels and soft colors are still going strong, summer is all about bold and bright hues, such as vibrant pinks, yellows, and oranges. These colors are perfect for outdoor weddings, as they add a pop of color against the greenery.

Eco-friendly Decor

As sustainability becomes more and more important, eco-friendly decor is on the rise. Consider using recycled materials or locally-sourced flowers and greenery for your wedding decor. Not only is it better for the environment, but it also adds a unique touch to your wedding.

Personalized Details

Personalized details are a trend that's not going away anytime soon. Couples are opting for personalized touches throughout their wedding, such as monogrammed napkins, favor boxes, bags, or custom favors. These details add a special touch to your wedding and make it unique to you.
