Summer weddings embrace the colourful and bright elements of the season! For beach and sunlight lovers having a wedding in summer is the perfect way to celebrate the special day. With the heat of the sun shining down on your marriage, there are a few things to consider to make the day as magical as it should be.
Naked and floral cakes
Let your wedding cake go au naturel! This means your icing won’t melt away and won’t cause sticky fingers for your guests. Top off your summertime treat with the freshest fruits for an invigorating dessert. To add an extra touch of nature consider fabulous floral cake toppers. Adorn your cake with the fully bloomed flowers of the season. It will look magical.
Scream for ice cream
Keep yourself and your guests cool with refreshing and frozen treats at your summer wedding. Chocolate coated, sprinkle covered ice cream on a stick. Need we say more? This nostalgic pudding is bound to keep all your guests smiling.
Having an outdoor wedding may be breathtaking and magical, but there may be some uninvited guests that decide to crash the party. Keep sneaky bugs at bay by placing mosquito repellent citronella candles along the outside areas. The candles will also add to the warmth of the night, and will keep your reception smelling lovely.
Summer weddings need shady areas! Even if most of your wedding takes place indoors, your guests will be drawn to the outdoors. Set up some seating under large trees or set up an outdoor area where people can relax with cocktails firmly in hand.
What’s better than a refreshing lemonade in the summertime? Create a vignette with a beverage dispenser and glasses, where guests can help themselves to a thirst quenching drink. For the adults, spike the lemonade to create summer cocktails. This is a fun way to spice up a cutesy wedding.
Embrace the bright colours of summer and pick printed bridesmaid dresses! Floral frocks make for pretty pictures, adding a fresh and fun feel to your wedding. Bridesmaids will feel youthful and giddy in these seasonal dresses, which will make for one happy wedding party.
Lightly coloured suits
Don’t forget about the guys when it comes to having the perfect summer wedding. There is something about this sunny season and men in tan or grey suits. The colours are light and natural, which will add a vibrancy in the summer heat.
Keep your wedding fresh and light, and embrace the beautiful landscape of nature to enhance your special day. With a summer wedding, it will definitely be a night to remember.
