While we’re always excited for weddings in Huntsville Alabama , the wedding trends for summer 2018 are making this an especially fun year. Read on to discover some of our favorite summer 2018 wedding trends to see what we mean!

Don’t you just love a summer wedding? The season holds so much adventure and is the perfect time to embark on the greatest adventure of all — marriage!

Summer 2018 Wedding Trend #1: Unexpected Florals

Extravagant, unique, and completely customizable to you and your taste, this audacious trend will instantly create a memorable setting on your big day. It’s a perfect option for those who love to bring the beauty of nature near, but would rather avoid the discomforts (like Alabama’s mosquitos!) of a ceremony and reception in the summer heat.

Use your florals to create a romantic scene at the altar, a fresh and airy milieu behind the Mr. & Mrs. table, a decadent backdrop for the cutting of the cake, or even to dress a stairwell. The possibilities are practically endless!

Summer 2018 Wedding Trend #2: Stacks on Stacks

So many of our Summer 2018 brides are wearing stacking rings, and we just can’t get enough! This trend is catching on everywhere. According to Brides.com, online searches for unique stacks have more than doubled since last year.

If you love switching up your jewelry, this trend is for you. Mix and match the bands you pair with your engagement rings to create a new look anytime you’d like! These lovely little rings can also serve as anniversary gifts. What a special way of celebrating yet another year of wedded bliss! (Hint hint, grooms!)

Summer 2018 Wedding Trend #3: Statement Veils

Women have been drawing inspiration from royal weddings for centuries. (Did you know white wasn’t a popular wedding dress color until Queen Victoria wore it in her own nuptials?) So, it’s not hard to believe that Meghan Markle’s royal look has quickly made statement veils all the rage.

If you’re looking to make a statement as you walk down the aisle, opt for a veil with florals, fringes, lace, embroidery, or even a bit of sparkle. Attention-grabbing veils are an especially beautiful and unexpected touch for brides donning a simple gown for their wedding this summer.

Veils just not your style? That’s ok, too! Embroidered wedding dresses are another up-and-coming trend sure to make a statement, and vibrant florals are perfect for the summer season.

Summer 2018 Wedding Trend #4: Bright Lights

Believe it or not, neon signs are taking the stage this summer as one of the hottest trends for special events! There’s something sublime that happens to the linen and tableware under the glow that really sets up the mood to have a good time. We love that you can customize these signs to fit your big day, then take them home as a lasting reminder of your special celebration.

Summer 2018 Wedding Trend #4: Clear as Can Be

Although we still love chalkboards and mirrors, it’s fun to see crystal-clear acrylic wedding signs quickly becoming the new go-to for lettering. They automatically blend with any color and theme. Plus, they are simple, crisp and modern — the perfect touch for your elegant guest cards, welcome signs, and more.

Summer 2018 Wedding Trend #5: The Modern Groom

While the black tux will never go out of style, we are also seeing some bold new trends for the gentlemen that are making their debut.

For summer 2018 grooms, it’s all about color blocking and texture: the bolder, the better. Deep evergreens, burgundy, and even mauve are making their way into the color palette. For color blocking, try a lighter color on the jacket and darker color on the pant to create that dramatic contrast that’s trending.

If you’re a little nervous about venturing too far from the traditional tux, opt for a sultry midnight blue or cobalt, the new classics for 2018 weddings. Or stick to the monochrome, but add a texture that makes the suit pop. Tweed, linen, velvet, and brocade are all ways to add a little adventure to the groom’s attire.
