My Favorite Summer Trends

Summer is here! Summers are a most welcomed season in Chicago because that's when we all go out, attend the multitude of free festivals and concerts in the city and have tons of weddings. That's why the summers in Chicago are some of the best in the country! So, today I wanted to highlight my favorite summer wedding trends that I have seen lately in my city in the hopes that you may get ideas and inspiration. Below are my favorite's for the summer of 2016.
Suits for the Guys- Cool, comfy and very modern. Suits are taking over more formal wear for the groom and groomsmen. Another advantage of suits- you can buy one and definitely wear it for many more events or even work.
Pastel bridesmaid dresses- Light pink seems to be the color of the season, but any kind of pastel is wonderful for Summer. And flowing, ethereal dresses are always great for an outdoor or garden wedding.
Garden Weddings-I absolutely love garden weddings. Why? Because the light is so wonderful and the surroundings are usually so lush and saturated. Garden weddings are great during the summers and early fall here in Chicago. A wedding in the outdoors is perfect for rustic, romantic, elegant or bohemian style wedding.
Outdoor games-This trend I saw all last year! Bocci ball, board games, badminton...any type of outdoor games are great for summer weddings. Guests' seem to love playing games during the cocktail hour and after dinner. In the above photo, the couple wanted to make a game their guest book as well!
Having the ceremony and reception in the same place-In the past three years, I have seen this trend grow more and more. Having the ceremony and reception in the same place lets your guests not have to worry about waiting for cocktails to begin or transportation to the reception venue. Everyone can go straight to cocktails after the reception. And pictures can happen before the ceremony after a first look or during the cocktail hour, around the venue.
Rose-gold decor-What a lovely color palette for Summer! Rose-gold is quickly becoming a hot trend for this summer. The above photo was taken at The Rookery where the couple had a beautiful gold and pink color scheme, which made for some pretty photogenic images!
Flower crowns for the flower girls-How cute is this! This trend is especially great for summer weddings with a bohemian or whimsical theme. These cuties loved their flowers and the styling was a perfect fit for a garden wedding in Wisconsin.
