PAGASA has officially declared the beginning of summer season in the Philippines and apart from seeing numerous photos of beach trips flooding our timelines, we’re pretty sure that we’ll also see a couple of summer-inspired weddings as well.
But let’s be honest. Even though the summer heat here doesn’t exactly provide the best setting to wear long gowns and stay in non-air conditioned venues, you can’t deny that there’s no other like summer in the Philippines. That’s why we’re talking about the top 5 summer wedding trends that we’re bound to see this season -- and even beyond!
#1: Entourage: Mixed colors and styles
Gone are the days when the whole entourage would wear just one matching color or gown design. We’re seeing more mix and match shades--and even prints--specifically for the bridesmaids this time around, and this playful mix of styles and colors look even better during summer.
The best way to pull this off is to go for infinity dresses, which you can style in a number of ways that would flatter the person wearing it. To make it even more summer-perfect, choose different shades or prints with an overarching color motif to still achieve harmony with how your entourage looks.
#2: Bridal Look: Sun-kissed makeup and soft beach waves
What’s summer without achieving that glowing sun-kissed look? More and more brides are also embracing the bronzy or more au natural bridal makeup. Whether you achieve this by getting tan or with the proper use of highlighter and contour, you’re sure to look radiant especially if you have a daytime wedding.
To complete your summer bride look, you can also let your hair down and have soft curls or waves for your hair as well. Just be sure to tell your hairstylist to keep your hair out of your face by pinning the upper half in order to keep your beautiful face on full display.
#3: Motifs: Bright and bold color motifs mix
Summer is also the perfect time to go for more daring choices with your color motif. Again, instead of zeroing in on just one color or shade, choose a mix of bright and bold colors that perfectly complement each other. Example of which is going for a sunset-inspired theme, comprising of the colors: yellow, orange, and red. Just imagine how it would look set against the natural summer foliage and daylight--it’s gorgeous, isn’t it?
Choosing several colors--and not just different shades--is a great way to inject more vibrancy into your whole wedding, making it feel more festive and lively and definitely a great way to set the tone from the ceremony all the way to after party.
#4: Themes: Rustic and nature
Earthy, rustic, and natural--these are among the most prominent themes from recent weddings, particularly those of destination weddings regardless if it’s beachfront or overlooking a view from the mountains. These themes bring a certain calm and serenity to the wedding and is perfect for couples who want to keep more lowkey and simple.
The key to achieving this theme is going for more greens, browns, and other neutrals with muted colors, as well as prominent use of white. If you’re not a big fan of bold and eye-catching colors, then sticking to a more rustic and earthy theme would definitely suit you.
#5: Accents: Playful accents
When it comes to weddings, everything’s planned out down to the smallest of details. And instead of simply leaving it up to the supplier, a lot of brides (and some grooms) are taking charge of every little thing to make sure that their whole wedding speak of their relationship and personality. We’re talking about adding in some quirky and playful accents that may be out of the norm, but speaks volumes about the couple getting married.
Whether it’s a detail on the cake, on the table setting, or even on how the flowers are arranged, adding playful accents is a perfect way to make your wedding even more unique to you and your future spouse.
