Get ready for Summer weddings! Light airy dresses, sunny florals and warm nights...the perfect elements for a dreamy celebration. Sometimes it's the location that sets the tone, the seasonal landscape and weather play a role, but often, the choices of colors, bridal attire and styled elements are what really define a seasonal, or season-less wedding. Read on for some gorgeous summer inspiration planned by A White Orchid Wedding photographed by Stephanie Lynn Co. First things first...the dress of course! Our light-as-air Desert Rose gown was made for summer weddings. Especially when worn with just the sheer layers of French embroidery as shown here. Silk embroidered blush and sage florals are strategically placed underneath our ecru lace pattern, so you'll show off those pretty legs, but not anything you wouldn't want the grandparents to see! Of course, the dress can be fully lined if you prefer a more traditional take on this floral fantasy. Paired with our rose and petal strewn Enchanted Rose bridal cape, this look is summer goddess worthy.
On to this beautiful ceremony adorned with lush florals by Fernhouse Flowers Maui. Shades of ivory and buttercup with pops of yellow and green bring that summer vibe to life. Pared with pale wood and stone, and all of that luminous natural light, this setting feels like a breath of fresh air. After the patio ceremony, guests are invited to a truly elegant dinner in the stunning Hotel Wailea. Soaring wood beamed ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, this Maui hotel was named by Conde Nast Traveler as one of the top 21 most romantic hotels in the world. Just perfect for an intimate gathering with views of the ocean and neighboring Hawaiian islands.
Anything can be your starting point for wedding inspiration. It can be the season, a favorite color, a venue, a song, a movie, this list is endless...but choosing something that is meaningful to the two of you helps begin the process; helps you narrow things down; and there are SO MANY choices to make, it really does help to create some boundaries for yourself. It doesn't have to be complicated, it can literally be just as light, airy and effortless as this! It's been so fun finishing up all of our summer brides final fittings, and sending them on their way to beautiful days like this, and now we're already getting started with our Summer 2023 brides!
Still haven't found your dress for a Fall 2022 wedding?
