Exploring the Hottest Summer Wedding Themes of 2016

If there’s one trend that stands out above all this year, it’s individuality. This year more than ever, brides and grooms are flocking towards a style that is unique and ultimately defines who they are. Out with the old stuffy creations and in with the fun themes that will truly make a night to remember. Let’s explore a few of the hottest summer themes that are making waves throughout weddings in 2016.

Chic and Rustic

Barns are increasingly becoming the hot summer theme. From ceremony to reception, couples are swooning over the rustic charm of old wood, long, elegant linen table clothes, and dangling, sparkly lights to create that perfect cozy atmosphere. Add in some bouquet of wild flowers and you’ve got a dreamy summer setting.

Love of Home

This year, you will find wedding themes flocking towards the integration of home-based features. For bride and groom, the importance of symbolic features based on their hometown is popping up everywhere. From the decorative features, to the type of flowers selected, to the music playing in the background – it’s home away from home.


Who doesn’t love vintage? Classic bow ties, 20s’ flapper style, metallic gold and lacy dresses – it screams elegance. Set in an old mansion or historic setting decked out with tall candles sticks and silver holders, this theme has couples striving to incorporate the good old days when things were stylish, classy and refined.

Casual Boho

The Casual Bohemian vibe is a trending theme that is embracing the simplicity of love and family. Never mind the exuberant decorations and features. Enter into these weddings and you can find colourful, mismatched vases and dinnerware, dotted with wild flowers, floral prints, feathered features and dangling dream catchers, all hanging amidst twinkling lights to set the mood.

Twilight Forest

What better theme and setting than a beautiful, majestic forest to celebrate your love with family and friends? Imagine towering trees as your cathedral, and soft green moss as your stage. With a few added touches of draped linens, paired with string lights and an archway made from branches – it’s a magical way to celebrate amidst the beauty of nature.

Your wedding day is a time to discover and celebrate who you truly are as a couple. And that means choosing a theme that represents your style and vibe. If you’re unsure about what defines your style, a few of these hot summer themes for 2016 might spark your interest and give you that inspiration you’ve been looking for.
