The Go-to Guide for that Perfect Summer Wedding

Are you planning your big summer wedding? Can’t decide on the florist, the dress and venue? Let us do the worrying for you; here are some helpful tips and unique wedding ideas to get you started on your stressfree summer soiree! 

When in doubt, go short!

A short wedding dress is both trendy and chic. Go for a delicate feminine look with a slim silhouette or a full, tulle skirt with sequins to add a bit of glam to your look. You can even play around with colors for your summer bridal style, opting for a soft pink, blue or lavender rather than a traditional white. 

Wild Flowers for your Spring Wedding:

Whether its deep jewel tones or pastel hues, add wildflowers to your summer wedding to create that Insta-worthy aesthetic! Feature them in your bridal bouquet or create artsy centerpieces for your guests to enjoy. You can also feature these flowers to decorate your alter. 

Dance the Night Away in the Great Outdoors: 

For your reception decor, choose open air or outdoor seating with plenty of space and natural scenery. 

For added fun, consider ice cream, frozen treats, and on-ice refreshments to help the guests keep cool. Lawn games are also a fun activity during summer weddings. Set them up for your guests to play during cocktail hour and create memorable moments on your big day!

Strike a Pose!

Opt for summer specific locations like tree swings, porches, and docks that will inspire your wedding photographer to create multiple looks and creative shots. Take your wedding photographer to scout locations to be featured next to in your glamor shoot. Have your photographer take shots of your dress somewhere outside, too, during bridal prep.

Nautical Details:

There’s nothing like incorporating nautical details into your summer wedding. You can even have your ceremony in front of a show-stopping arbor to add a dramatic effect to the theme. 

Dress to Impress

Dress up your groomsmen with perfectly patterned and matching pocket squares, and go for boutonnieres instead of ties. For your summer bridal style, opt for bejeweled and sequined sandals or flats for your wedding shoes. Incorporate breezy materials to help your bridesmaids stay cool. These kinds of fabrics move beautifully in photos, too!
