Summer Wedding Trends

Summer 2021 is set to be unforgettable in the world of weddings, as many couples across the UK host their wondrous celebrations.

In this blog, our wedding venue near Beverly predicts this year’s summer wedding trends.

Relaxed and informal

A well-known wedding day tip is to take a few moments to yourself, away from the hustle and bustle, to soak in the occasion. But, imagine if there was no hustle and bustle, and no stress.

This summer, couples will choose to whisk their guests away from reality, to blissfully isolated locations such as the countryside or a quiet beach. The only formality needed will be the exchanging of vows, with the rest open to your own personal desires.

Best of British

The coronavirus pandemic has been incredibly hard on local businesses in the UK, and they need support this summer more than ever. For this reason, many couples will opt to help the economy on their doorstep, rather than look further afield.

This summer, more couples will take advantage of Britain’s wealth of suppliers, bridal boutiques and independent businesses. There will also be a rise in local weddings, particularly in our country’s best beauty spots.

Pastel Shades

Whether it be on bridesmaid dresses or intertwined within the decor, pastel shades will be embraced at weddings this summer. Lilac, pink, yellow, peach and mint colours will be a common sight.

If we take into account colour psychology, pastels can have a calming effect on those that see them. This can help to make a wedding venue a hub of tranquility, whilst still being exceedingly fashionable and on-trend.

Mid-week weddings

This summer is set to be one of the busiest yet for special occasions, due to cancelled 2020 weddings spilling over into 2021. Because of this, many couples will look to book a mid-week wedding.

As well as the advantage of increased availability, mid-week weddings can really cut down costs of the venue, accommodation, travel and suppliers. And, your guests can enjoy a well-deserved day off work filled with celebrations.

Lots of DIY

There is no better way to add a personal touch to your wedding day than showcasing some homemade crafts. Having gained inspiration from Pinterest, IGTV and YouTube tutorials over lockdown, couples will be sure to bring DIY to their weddings this summer.

From invitations to centrepieces, visions can become a reality when you create exactly what you want to. Crafting is also a great way to unwind and de-stress on the run up to your special day!
