Wedding trends are ever evolving and with each year we see new decorations, styles, and perspectives. Weddings held in August are incredibly popular, it is the perfect time of year to capitalize on everything we love about summer. The weather has cooled down slightly, the sun sets much later, and locations across the country reflect the essence of summer with all the seasonal nature surroundings. The perfect wedding is easier to achieve in summer months and there are ways to save on costs by DIY-ing some of your decorations. When it comes to tablescapes, it’s all in the details. Your vision can come to life without breaking the bank, it just takes a little more planning and budgeting to include all the details. 



We have put together a list of August wedding trends to take some inspiration from in order to bring your dream to life. One of the most magical parts of any wedding celebration is the reception dinner, when all of your friends and loved ones come together to celebrate an everlasting love. Part of the magic is creating the perfect tablescape to set the mood and capture your guests attention. Here are a few trends for August 2023 weddings that we are loving:

Vibrant Colors and Organic Textures

While neutrals have always been a trend, we are seeing an increase in vibrant colors that reflect the summer season! Colorful accents are showing up everywhere, from flowers, placemats, table runners, napkins, and so much more. Adding colors and stepping away from neutrals can brighten up your wedding and capture the essence of summer.

Intentional Lighting

Lighting is one of the most important aspects of wedding planning, the correct lighting could enhance the overall feel and look of your wedding. When it comes to a tablescape, softer lighting can be combined to create a nice glow. This includes a mix of candles, lanterns, fairy lights, and anything that isn’t too bright or overwhelming.

Dinner Party Weddings

If you are aiming for a smaller wedding, an element to include into your planning might be a dinner party at the wedding. Recently, influencers such as Emily Mariko have added an intimate dinner party to their wedding. This is an incredible way to bring everyone together and enjoy the beauty of the wedding in addition to great food.
