Lots of couples choose to have a summer wedding, and we don’t blame them! Summer is a fun season, full of warm weather and bright colors. It’s a great time to be outdoors and soak up the sun. With so many great wedding ideas for summer, it’s hard to choose just a few, but we’ve managed to come up with a list of our favorite summer trends!
Outdoor venues – Summer is a great time to be outside! Popular outdoor venues include: beaches, parks, wineries, and backyards. What about a summer destination wedding to your favorite tropical isle? You may even want to have a combination indoor/outdoor wedding; ceremony outdoors and reception indoors (might we suggest the banquet hall at Eden Ballroom & Catering?)
Bright, bright, bright! – Summer hues are bright and bold. Make your wedding pop by including fun colors throughout, or choosing a theme with vivid details.
Casual, elegant, or both – Summer weddings aren’t limited to any one particular style of dress. If you’re having an outdoor wedding, you might want to consider asking your guests to dress in fresh, casual linens and light colors. Groomsmen don’t have to be in full tuxedos, and bridesmaids have the option of wearing shorter gowns. However, you may find that you like the contrast of a well-dressed wedding party against the natural backdrop. With a summer wedding, you have options!
Décor/Favors – You’ll find the most wedding ideas for summer in this category! Guests love receiving personalized fans and sunglasses when attending a wedding at an outdoor venue. And the beautiful variety of summer flowers means you’re guaranteed to find a fun and fragrant way to decorate your event. Tea lights, unique lanterns, Mason jar candles, framed quotes, big umbrellas, and carnival-style pennants are just a few of the fun decorations we’ve seen at some of our favorite summer weddings.
Food – When planning a menu for a summer wedding, especially one that takes place outdoors, you’ll want to include light and refreshing items to keep your guests feeling cool and comfortable.
