Summer is here, and we’re ready for all that this season brings—bright colours, fresh florals and overall, happy vibes.

We’ve brought some of our favourite trends, colour palettes and creative wedding planners to help you get the ball rolling. Read on for six of our faves!
1. A Touch of Modernism

Channel the desert heat and enigmatic nature of Palm Springs with this fun and colourful tablescape designed by The Good Party. Dashes of warm and cool tones will draw your guests in and keep them fixated on your custom menus and lively florals. Make sure to mix your favourite hues to make it inextricably you!
2. Lush & Inviting
Photographer: Madison Joue
Maybe you and your honey are big lovers of greenery, meaning this setup is a must-have! The Blondie Bride created this wonderful jungle atmosphere by combining a simple, monochromatic scheme, fresh eucalyptus and the beautiful Saskatoon Farm venue. With just a few beautiful details, you can have the plant-filled wedding of your dreams.
3. Parisian Chic
Photographer: Corrina Walker Photography
Who needs a flight to Paris when you have this view? These pink tones, iridescent floral goblets, scalloped tableware and fresh macarons have us all pining for a summer wedding like this one. Moments by Madeleine pulled together just the right number of details to make this wedding table come alive. Bonjour, Paris!
4. Warm Elegance
Photographer: Juan & Angie
This tablescape designed by Coco & Ash incorporates those pops of colour that we so lovingly associate with summer, along with elements that keep it grounded and warm. If your goal is to make your guests feel right at home, then this might be the inspiration you’ve been looking for. We love the subtle and beautiful chargers with that vintage-looking glassware!
5. Bright & Airy
Photographer: Boketto Photography
Minimalist millennials, we see you! This Okanagan Events Girl tablescape takes the “less is more” approach with only the essentials to create a romantic, curated wedding experience. With beautiful florals like these, you really don’t need much more. Add some metallic chargers, ceramic candlestick holders and raw-edge linens, and you’re in business.
6. Fresh & Botanical
Photographer: Royce Sihlis Photography
To us, this setting just screams “French countryside”. Whether it’s the French countryside or a vineyard in Tuscany, we’re here for it. Communiti Collective and Filosophi used rich, blue tones and vintage-inspired votives and vases to create a beautiful and elegant setup. Any setting that has a baguette gets a big YES from us!
