The Summer of 2016 is bringing in Hot, Humid Days, Fresh Strawberries, Brightly Colored Beach Balls, and these Fabulous Wedding Trends! The Kindred Spirit Team has a feeling that these Trends will be persevering through this Southern Heat and Sticking Around for Awhile!

1. Greenery
If you are not a fan of large amounts of flowers (or the even larger price sticker!). Then, you are going to love this new wedding trend! Greenery is growing in popularity with modern brides and I dare say it’s one of our favorite trends! We suggest looking into magnolia leaves if you want a southern statement, eucalyptus for a romantic garden wedding, and monstera leaves for a tropical getaway.

We love the Southern feeling Magnolia leaves bring!

2. Geode
This wedding trend is perfect for the modern bride who wants to make a dramatic, yet classy, statement at her wedding! With geodes and marble popping up everywhere else, it was about time that they started making an appearance at weddings as well! With a few well placed accents, your guests will love the trend without feeling like they are mining for jewels! We love the idea of invitations, a wedding cake, and table numbers!

3. Jewel-Inspired Colors
Pantone recently released the list of the trendiest fall wedding colors and we suspect that the geode trend inspired the jewel-toned colors! From ruby red, to emerald green, and topaz yellow, the gemstone color palate is taking over 2016 weddings.

We love how this bride incorporated Ruby Red into her wedding cake!

4. Cascading Florals
The perfectly circular bridal bouquets and table centerpieces are taking a step back and overflowing flowers are shining in the spotlight. The reason why we are so obsessed with this trend is because of the versatility: it adds romance to a plantation wedding, a vintage touch to a rustic endeavor, boho glam for a nontraditional bride, and a softness to a beach ceremony.

We love the vintage feel of this cascading bouquet!

5. Copper
The rose gold trend from 2015 carried into the copper obsession of 2016 and the Kindred Spirit Team has a feeling that brides will be seeing more and more copper accents leading into the fall and winter months. Remember, a few touches of copper can go a long way. We recommend a few touches here and there on your wedding cake, tables, and signs.

We love this copper cake!
