12 of the Most Gorgeous Celebrity Summer Wedding Trends
Celebrities are true trailblazers when it comes to setting trends, and weddings are no different. This summer we’ve fallen in love with everything from swapping out florals for greenery to topping towering cakes with succulents or hydrangeas and even asking bridesmaids to wear jumpsuits instead of the oft-loathed bridesmaid dress. These celebs have raised the bar even higher with some unexpected and truly gorgeous wedding trends. From Julianne Hough’s sheer reception gown to Sofia Vergara’s dangling botanicals, here are 12 celebrity trends you’ll want to add to your wedding Pinterest board ASAP.
Castle Ceremonies, As Executed By Ciara
Ciara chose to marry football quarterback hubby Russell Wilson at an English castle in 2016. What's the added benefit to tying the knot at a castle (other than the pics, natch)? There’s plenty of room for overnight guests.
Ornate Headpieces, As Worn By Miranda Kerr
The flower crown is so last year. This summer, celebs like Miranda Kerr and Dancing with the Stars’ Peta Murgatroyd favored delicate diamond and pearl-encrusted headpieces that looked like they came straight from Kate Middleton’s princess treasure trove.
Sheer, As Worn By Julianne Hough
For her July wedding to Brooks Laich, Julianne Hough opted for two custom Marchesa looks: one très traditional strapless dress for the ceremony and one sheer, three-piece set fit for a dancing queen for the reception that followed.
Rustic Decor, As Executed by Nikki Reed
Nikki Reed captured perfectly rustic wedding vibes by adding antique pieces like gold bird cake toppers, lace details and romantic decorations to her Topanga Canyon, California, wedding to Ian Somerhalder.
Mini Bridesmaids, As Executed by Pippa Middleton
For her grandiose wedding to financier James Matthews, Pippa Middleton eschewed tradition and chose her niece, Princess Charlotte, as a bridesmaid instead of a flower girl.
Dramatic Cake Details, As Executed By Peta Murgatroyd
Peta Murgatroyd truly raised the confectionary (chocolate) bar with this massive four-layer cake wrapped in sugared peonies and studded with pearls. It's pretty much an edible wedding dress.
Classic Off-The-Shoulder Sleeves, As Worn By Erin Andrews
So maybe classic isn’t necessarily a trend, but we’ve noticed plenty of famous females walking down the aisle in gorgeous off-the-shoulder frocks this summer, and we’re all about it.
Hanging Florals, As Executed By Sofia Vergara
Who needs vases when you can cover the ceilings and walls of your wedding venue with an ornate, hanging botanical garden of white orchids, roses and hydrangeas like Sofia Vergara did?
Rural Venue, As Executed by Allison Williams
Alison Williams tied the knot with now-hubby Ricky Van Veen in a small country celebration at Brush Creek Ranch in Saratoga, Wyoming. It's secluded, intimate and the perfect backdrop for pictures. Count us in.
Greenery, As Executed by Emmy Rossum
Emmy Rossum went for the gold when she chose her and hubby Sam Esmail’s wedding chuppah. The couple added a tasteful touch of this summer’s hottest (and unexpected) wedding floral trend—greenery—to what was truly a dreamy wedding.
All White Everything, As Executed By Solange
Solange Knowles is anything but conventional. The songstress opted to dress her entire bridal party in the most traditional of wedding hues—white—for her New Orleans, Louisiana, wedding.
Dual Dresses, As Executed by Anna Camp
Worried about sweating, spilling or other highly likely mishaps to happen while busting a move on the dance floor during your reception? Take a page from Anna Camp’s book and purchase a second, more comfortable (and forgiving) dress to change into after the ceremony.
