Top 5 Trends for a Summer Wedding


Regency Period Aesthetic

Lady Whistledown has spoken and she predicts the return of regency in the year 2022. Fasten your fascinators and dust off your dancing shoes for the start of the much-anticipated summer wedding season.

Bridgerton has taken the world by storm and surprisingly, so has its fashion, colloquialisms and period trends. With the fame and fortune of Bridgerton, comes the introduction of regency period aesthetic into the wedding scene for the summer season.

From the ruffle dresses and delicate gloves, to the eloquent stationary and antique place settings, there is a sense of class and poise in the air, and we cannot wait to see it!

Bold is the New Pastel

We are all too familiar with the pastel theme that has rightfully earned a permanent place on the wedding stationary trending list. The classy minimalistic approach is hard to beat but a little colour never hurt too!

2022 is the year of welcoming back, celebrating in style and making up for lost time. Go big or go home. Let’s face it, we don’t want to go home, we have had enough of that over the last 2 years! Now is the perfect time to introduce bold, vibrant and block colours into wedding stationary. From bright pinks to show stopping greens, be unapologetically loud with your wedding stationary in 2022.

Reimagine your Wedding Table Plan

Thinking outside the box in your wedding preparations will totally pay off. There is a period of time in many of our lives when we are attending more weddings than we are having hot dinners (joking). Hence, it is important to stand out from the crowd, to make it a night to remember for your guests.

A fun and imaginative way to do this is through your table plan. We all know the typical table plan and often, beyond the design, little thought is required in the creation process. We think there is no better time than the present to entertain with your table plan, welcoming weddings back in style.

From labelling your tables as your favourite movies, books or celebrities, to a more personal approach by organising it with childhood photographs of the bride and groom, have a bit of fun with your guests and get the excitement up before you even sit down!

Save the Date with your Engagement Pictures

Save the Date Cards are the perfect way to announce your wedding to those you intend to invite, but prior to sending out the main invitation. What is great about a save the date card is that it is always a little less formal than an invite and your entire style of wedding stationery doesn’t have to be finalised.

The main purpose of a save the date card is to give your guests the opportunity to plan ahead with holidays and events of their own. By announcing the date a year in advance, you are giving those you want to attend ample warning that they need to keep this special day free for your event.

Save the dates are typical and often predictable in design. Why not jazz it up a little with an innovative, personal design? It is becoming common for couples to show off their romantic engagement photographs in their save the date stationary. Excite your guests with a snapshot into what’s to come.

Shop Local for your Wedding

Shop local has been a persistent theme over the last few years. There are numerous benefits to local shopping, including helping the community, the economy and the environment. The post-pandemic consumer is much more considerate about where their products are being manufactured and this is important to consider.
