Summer wedding previews – what’s hot for 2015

Posted on 26th May, 2015 by Jackie Jolliffe

With the summer wedding season fast approaching we thought we’d share our top tips on what’s hot in the world of weddings right now…

Muted colour schemes

colour samples

While pinks and pastel colours have been popular for the last few years, this year sees the trend of much more muted shades teamed with sophisticated darker colours such as midnight blue or grey. A colour palette with more depth and sophistication is in for 2015.

For those of you who are keen to be on trend, the pantone colour of 2015 is marsala – a rich red / brown shade. Team with blush and gold for a rich and royal theme that works for just about every season.

A twist on the classic gown


While lace gowns and sweetheart necklines are still very much in, fashion forward brides should be opting for the latest look of off the shoulder gowns. Classic in style and with that flattering cover-up touch, the off the shoulder look suits all shapes and sizes. And if you’re looking for something that’s both practical and stylish, why not opt for a dress with pockets?

Modern groom

Summer wedding suits

Slim fit suits from high street stores or designers like Ted Baker are becoming increasingly popular amongst today’s grooms. While some may still opt for the classic tails look, things are generally much more relaxed when it comes to grooms’ style. For boho or country affairs, why not experiment with materials such as tweed and add a quirky touch with a bow tie, braces and brogues to finish off the look?

Laid back catering

In 2015 we’re saying goodbye to the sit down meal and hello to a sociable hog roast and / or BBQ. Fun, tasty and perfect for the summer season, it’s a great option for brides on a budget as well as those who would like a more relaxed, informal affair.

Come evening, street food is very much in. Think woodfired pizzas, noodles in boxes along with cookie, ice cream and popcorn stalls for dessert.

Classic cars

The vintage theme is still strong as we go into summer 2015 – and what better way to finish off your vintage look than with one of our classic cars?

For romantic, classic, vintage style opt for our 1960s Van Dam Plas Princess, kitted out with navy carpets and luxurious fur rugs.

For a quirky, summer-ready vehicle, choose our Regent Convertible wedding car. With fabulous features including traditional walk boards and a spare wheel on each side, plus the option to drive with the roof down, you’ll be able to start your big-day in true vintage fashion.

If you’ve opted for a more modern affair the white Chrysler limo, otherwise known as the Baby Bentley, will be your perfect accompaniment. With its sleek and stylish shape and plush seating it will set the tone for your beautiful day ahead.

If country style is more you thing, how about getting your hands on our brand new addition to Limo-Scene? Our white Range Rover Sport Overfinch is great for that farmyard charm and an ideal prop for those post-vows couple shots.

To enquire about or book any of our wedding cars for your big-day, get in contact with Limo-Scene today on 0800 389 5811.
