Summer Wedding Trends for 2013

Summer is definitely here in the northeast - we're right in the middle of a heat wave with temps reaching 90+ all week. PS: if you need me this week, you will likely find me at my parents house with my two girls and the big inflatable pool they bought this year.  Joining us today is the husband and wife wedding planning and design duo - Sojourner and Milo of Erganic Design based in New York. They are here to share their Top 4 Summer Themed Wedding Trends . . .  

1. Ombre Color Palettes are fresh and visually inspirational. Using analogous colors in block sections makes a bold statement.

2. Soft Color Tones for Flowers are popular in the summer. Try selecting a bold color for the bridesmaids dresses (like Red) to counter the soft understated colors of the flowers.

3. Have a dramatic send off . . . Sparklers will do the trick. Sparklers are a must have for summer nights. They're fun for your guests and great for pics.

4. Non-matching bridesmaids dresses are a chic trend. The colors should be complementary to each other, and work well optically within photos.
