Summer is right around the corner, and so too is summer wedding season! This year there’s no shortage of hot trends in weddings to add some sizzle to your big day. Here are just a few scorching ideas to heat up your summer wedding at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC. Without further ado, lets get planning your wedding!

Go Big!

With the scaled back weddings of the past few years, many couples are eschewing the minimalist approach and going all out. Whether you’ve had ot postpone your big day due to the pandemic or not, going big this summer is one of the hottest trends.

Whether it’s big flower arrangements, big fluffy gowns, or just a big guest list, bigger is definitely better this summer wedding season!

Retro Cakes

Retro cakes are making a comeback in a big way. Look to cakes of the 50’s and 60’s for some inspiration. With hand piped swags and bows, take the cake back to another era in classic style!

The Future’s So Bright

Bright flowers are replacing the muted tones of Spring this year, with lots of cheerful color that will really pack a punch at your soiree. Blend tones of bright pinks and reds, or even use gradients of lightest to darkest for a dramatic effect.

Totally 80’s

The 80’s are back when it comes to wedding styles. Think big bows, pearls, and lots and lots of bright pink!

It’s Easy Being Green

Sustainable weddings are another trend on the horizon this summer. Whether it’s recycled paper invitations, potted plant centerpieces, or seasonal and locally sourced cuisine, green is the way to go for summer 2023 and beyond.

Be Thrifty

Thrift store hunting is always fun, but even more so when it’s for a purpose. Look to thrift stores, consignment stores, antique stores, and even flea markets to find that perfect retro gem to use for decor at your reception and ceremony. Whether it’s a vintage chaise for your guests to relax on, or a vintage table to display your cake, there’s no shortage of ways you can get creative with a fabulous (and affordable) find from a thrift store.


Weekend long weddings are becoming a big thing in wedding trends, including after parties for guests who want to keep the fun going. Even day-after events like brunches, group outings, or family barbecues or dinners will keep on-trend. Bonus? You get more time with your guests without the responsibilities of the big day.
