Summer Wedding Trends for the Modern Southern Bride

Weddings are steeped in tradition. There’s something comforting and reassuring about embarking on the adventure of your life anchored by the strength of familiar and deeply significant family and community customs.

This does not mean, however, that as a modern bride you cannot add contemporary touches to your traditional Southern wedding. Below are a few examples; just channel your inner southern belle and have fun!

Summer Sparkle

Choosing a conventional summer bouquet to carry down the aisle? Why not sprinkle a dusting or two of brightly colored gems to increase the wow factor by a couple of notches? A jeweled bouquet is elegant and romantic and just what you need to make your last remaining moments as a single woman truly dramatic. Take the extra time and care to select gems that complement not only the flowers in your bouquet but also your wedding dress as well as the other jewelry you will be wearing.

Good Old Southern Fare

Summer in the south presents an abundance of food and flavor possibilities that can take your wedding banquet from wonderful to absolutely divine! Sweet summer corn in basil butter, bourbon-marinated pork medallions, roasted summer vegetables — there’s nothing quite like classic southern summer fare to please your guests’ palates and to make your wedding reception truly memorable.

Rustic Elegance

Southern weddings come with the grace and charm of the region; it just can’t be helped. Simple southern touches are enough to imbue a wedding with soul and genteel elegance that are characteristic not only of where we live but of who we are. From glorious sunflower bouquets to tablescapes bursting with hydrangeas – you will find that bringing the outdoors indoors for your southern wedding is an inspired choice.
