Tips for summer weddings
Though summer can be a cheerful time to hold a wedding, the heat can make it difficult. Still summer is the perfect time to hold a wedding since friends and family are on vacation, and people will be enjoying the longer days. Summer weddings are full of sunshine and warmth, and allow you to get married outside in good weather.
Summer weddings are ripe for an outdoor setting such as a beach, a garden, or a beautiful yard. Take advantage of the long days with an afternoon wedding, or highlight the glorious sunsets. Bring light to an evening wedding with torches and strings of lanterns in the trees.
Since summer is a very busy season, Plan well beforehand and book the venue much before the wedding. Make sure that there is enough space to move and it doesn’t look cluttered.
The setting of you summer wedding should completely be ruled by the weather. If the weather is too hot, having an outdoor wedding is a bad idea. However, even if you’re having an indoor wedding, don’t forget to provide heat relief. It’s essential for even outdoor weddings. Provide tents and set up areas to pass beverages at the venue.
Combine the decoration with fruits and flowers, the specialty of this season. When it comes to wedding flowers, the higher the temperature, the more upkeep they’ll require. Have them delivered the day of the wedding and make sure there’s a refrigerator on-site to store them before the ceremony starts.
For the color of your flowers, check out which flowers will be in bloom around your ceremony and reception site, and consider bold versions of those hues.
A bride should choose a lightweight and thin fabric for their wedding dress to keep cool during the ceremony. The fabric shouldn’t be too heavy or such that makes you uncomfortable. Light fabrics, like georgette, crepe, linen, chiffon or light silk, will be great.
Food is one of the most important things that can make your wedding the talk of the town. Celebrate the bounty of the season by filling your menu with fresh fruits such as watermelon, and berries, and fresh vegetables such as corn. Do make sure to serve a lighter fare, suitable for summer.
It is very important to decide on the favors you want to give your guests. Depending on your budget and setting, you can go from scented candles to flip flops to something more eco-friendly, like plants potted in colorful vases. Keep in mind the general taste and preferences of the guests in mind.
