Summer Vibes

Summer it brings joy, happiness, good vibes and of course the most busiest time of year for the wedding season.  Are you a summer bride and getting married in 2019?  If so I think it is time to get your research flowing and ideas blooming.

 

I have put together a lovely mood board for those summer brides.  I love the warm colours, peaches, blues and greens combined and think it shows off the vibes of summer.

 

 

 

Here are 4 things to think about when designing your summer wedding.

1. Colours- search Pinterest for pretty colour schemes
2. Table Settings- wooden features with table linens and napkins made of soft sheer fabrics.  For example 100% cottons or light linens.
3. Food- think of all the summer fruits and vegetables that are in season.  Lots of berries, courgettes, carrots, salads.
4. The dress- Think summer cool, loose flowing fabrics, nothing too tight or structured.  I think fabric choice plays an important role.   Did you know cotton is great for absorbing water? That is why towels are made from this clever fabric and it has the following properties:

  • Comfortable and soft.

  • Good absorbency- for those hot sweaty days.

  • Colour retention- so great for dying.

  • Prints well.

  • Machine-washable.

  • Dry-cleanable.

  • Good strength.

  • Drapes well.

The Lobelia skirt below is made with a cotton layer at the bottom which has been dip dyed in a range of blues and greys.  It is also lined in this fabric so it it is non-static and doesn't stick to your legs while you move.    It is really unpleasant to wear a dress in the heat if it feels sticky on your skin or makes sweat marks under the arms.

Cotton is also a natural cellulose fibre and.....

  • Did you know that you can get a lovely range of cottons and organic ranges which are ethical and have a lovely texture to them?  

You can buy a fabric pack on my ETSY which has a range of beautiful silks and cottons available.

 

Being a bespoke bride you have the option to choose your fabrics, whether they are ethical or not and you get to experience the process of creating the wedding dress of your dreams.
