Planning a summer wedding? Whether your wedding
is outdoors, at the beach, or inside, summertime is a magical time for
weddings. We are here to help you with the 5 tips for a beautiful summer wedding:
Sparklers For Weddings
A very popular trend right now, wedding sparklers
are taking the wedding circuit by storm. Sparklers for weddings are great
additions for your guests to interact and celebrate your special day! Sparklers
can be used for decoration during the reception and grand send-offs. Account
for all your guests and have enough sparklers on hand! Have them lit and ready
when you leave as a married couple. Summer nights, sparklers lit, it’s the
perfect combination. The photos will make for an unforgettable memory.
Keep Your Guests Cool
Summer weddings are great..minus the summer heat!
If your ceremony or reception is held outdoors, take the proper precautions to
ensure your guests are cool and comfortable. Rent fans or provide shade for
your guests. Keeping cool is very important! Set-up “hydration stations” with
water or fruit infused water to make sure everybody is enjoying themselves!
Having a summer wedding leaves room for lots of
creativity. Look at Pinterest for summer cocktail recipes! Your guests will
love to sip on a refreshing summer inspired cocktail while dancing and
celebrating your special day. Pinterest recipes can be made non-alcoholic as
well! That way, all of your guests can enjoy the refreshing taste of summer!
As we’ve mentioned, the summer heat can be
sweltering! Depending where you plan to have your wedding and reception, plan
for an evening wedding. If your wedding is in the evening, you will be wed as
the sun sets and your reception will take place at night! Bonus, it will still
be warm in the summer night and allow for your guests to dance the night away.
Create your menu based off summer inspired
cuisine! Summer weddings give you the opportunity to grill out, serve chilled
foods and other selections. Keep the menu light and fun! Serve shrimp
cocktails, fresh fruit or small sandwiches. If you want to do a picnic or grill
theme, serve hot dogs, hamburgers, french fries, watermelon, chicken wings,
popsicles etc. Depending on your theme, summer offers a wide variety of options
for refreshing food options.
