The Seattle area is seeing a lot of delicate chic themes with neutral tones. This is a great way to incorporate a more natural look into your decor without going overboard on flowers and greenery.
Neutral colors such as cream, gray, white, black, and tan all work well together for a simple but elegant look that won't detract from your gorgeous gown or bridesmaids' dresses. If you have an outdoor venue with lots of greenery like trees or flowers around it, this type of neutral color scheme will complement it nicely and make your day feel even more magical!
Let's kick off with a trend that's all about getting away from it all. Destination outdoor weddings are becoming increasingly popular as couples want to escape their everyday lives and get back to nature during their big day.
While destination outdoor weddings are typically held in tropical or European locales like Italy, venues like Gray Bridge are easily accessible to Seattle and offer gorgeous backdrops for your nuptials. Destination Outdoor Weddings are perfect for couples who want their wedding to be an event to remember, with all the fun, excitement, and adventure that comes with it.
The boho-chic style has been popular for the past few years, and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. This trend is all about organic beauty and natural elements—think terracotta or burnt-orange, sage green, and wildflower bouquets.
We’re also seeing a lot of woodsy details like twig centerpieces and tree branches wrapped around candelabras and hanging from chandeliers. The most elevated version of this look incorporates a big band sound with a vintage vibe.
In 2023 we continue to see more bridesmaids wearing blue, but as the year continued we began to see purple bridesmaid dresses are also on-trend - particularly lavender and amethyst hues. With purple hues like ‘Digital Lavender’ becoming more popular in all design trends, we can expect it to become one of the favorite wedding colors over the next few years. Lavender is thought to symbolize peace and tranquility, which makes it an excellent choice for weddings held outdoors during spring or summer months when the weather may not always be perfect! If lavender isn't quite your thing, try amethyst instead!
At Gray Bridge, our lavender plants are at their peak in late July and August creating a great backdrop to your purple theme.
Wedding tents were originally designed as a way to protect guests from inclement weather (and avoid rain on your wedding day), however, they've quickly become an alternative to traditional ballrooms or reception halls — especially if you want an outdoor ceremony or reception venue with more privacy and intimate feel than other types of events. They also allow you to create your dream venue with some added extras like lighting and decorating.
Whether you’re looking to incorporate the hottest new trends or classic details you’ve always dreamed of, the Gray Bridge Outdoor Wedding Venue is uniquely customizable to achieve your unique vision for your special day.
