It’s summer! This means it's both wedding season and festival season. While weddings have long had a “look”, over the past few years, festival fashion has become increasingly popular. Unsurprisingly, festival fashion has influenced summer wedding fashion. Both are often romantic, with a penchant for flowing garments and flowers.

If you’ve ever been a bridesmaid you’ll know it is a lot of work. Some brides — like you, we are sure — are easy to deal with. They know what they want, they don’t ask for the impossible — or the downright extravagant — and they are grateful for all your hard work. Others, let’s face it, go full-on bridezilla. And you should never go full-on bridezilla.

Rustic weddings have been popular for a while and the trend for country chic is not going away. Where once brides and grooms dreamt of luxurious hotels, these days it is all about hay bales.

Barns are popular venues, as are farm houses. Barns are in fact so much in demand that they outstrip reception halls in terms of popularity. In certain locales, farmers and landowners are cashing in on the trend by re-purposing their barns and giving their property a spit and polish to appeal to the wedding market. Some have found a lucrative revenue source by adding “glamping” facilities so that guests can have the country experience without any of the inconvenience!

Because of their financial and personal involvement, couples want a wedding to reflect their personalities. Couples are turning to the media, both traditional and online, to look for inspiration. 72 percent turns to Pinterest and just over a third check out Instagram for ideas.
