Summer is officially here! So, we’ve curated a list wedding trends that are popular this season. Whether you’re getting married in a few weeks or planning a summer wedding for the future, we hope this inspires you along your wedding planning journey.

Bright, Vibrant Color Palettes 

When we think of summer, we think of long sunny days, tropical aesthetics, bold sunsets, and vibrant blooms. And, that’s exactly what we’re seeing our couples lean in to when it comes to choosing their wedding day color palettes. They’re opting for bright colors that celebrate the color of the season and we couldn’t be more in love!

Retro Vibes

A fun summer trend more couples are incorporating are retro details. Think of your wedding stationary, table numbers or cake toppers – these are great elements to celebrate the nostalgia of the past and bring a little fun to your wedding décor.

Water-Front Ceremonies

What’s summer without days by the water? Outdoor venues are incredibly popular for summer months, but this year more couples are prioritizing venues with views of the water. Did you know, at Disney Weddings, we offer a variety of water-front venues at Walt Disney World, Disney Cruise Line and Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa? From toes in the sand, to an idyllic river-front under the oak trees, to festive Boardwalk scenes – there’s so many options!

Relaxed Entertainment

Summer brings a more relaxed vibe, and we’re seeing couples celebrate this through their wedding entertainment. Opting for lawn games, magicians, balloon artists, a ukulele player, or a big-band performance. We love when couples want to create relaxed, festive environments for their wedding guests and entertainment is an important way to build this kind of atmosphere. 

Practical Wedding Favors

Let’s be honest, summer can be hot! We’ve seen many couples choose to gift their wedding guests more practical wedding favors with a personalized twist. Like a Corkcicle canteen or even personalized sunscreen bottles. Your guests will appreciate a sustainable, practical and personalized gift!

Fun Frozen Treats

Finally, our last summer trend we’ll leave you with – frozen desserts! From Mickey ice cream bars, dole whip or shaved ice – couples are having fun by adding fun treats their wedding menu. Not to mention, this can be a great photo opportunity.
