The wedding industry has taken a turn over the past few years, it is no longer expected to see white roses, long white gowns or even bride-and-groom topped white cakes.
Traditional weddings are still around, but the more untraditional weddings have become mainstream. This is fun for the bride and groom because they can put themselves in it a little bit more.
Even though traditional weddings will never go out of style — many modern brides (and grooms) are choosing a wedding that is more customized and out-of-the-ordinary for their wedding day.
Each season can bring a new trend, and this summer is no different. If you are planning a summer wedding it is important to know what is popular and available to you. These summer wedding trends can help.
