Trying to plan the perfect summer wedding? Everyone loves summer time! Everything is green, the warm sun giving you that perfect glowing tan, and it’s the time of year for all your cookouts and beach parties. For those of us that count down the days until summer is here, summer weddings are for you! Not only to you get all the fun summer time activities you love, but you also get to marry the man of your dreams! Talk about the best of everything. So today I am here to give you 3 tips for an unforgettable summer wedding!
First off you have to plan for that sweltering summer heat! Whether your wedding is going to be a beautiful outdoor, country side wedding or a dreamy beach wedding, you want to make sure your guests are comfortable. One neat idea I have seen recently are program fans, GENIUS! Your ceremony program can be printed on a fan and handed to guest as they are seated. This is both functional to help keep cool as well as informative about your wedding. For your reception you can set up “hydration stations” with water or fruit infused water, yummy! This is a must for those beachy themes, not only does it provide a refreshing drink but also a colorful display.
Want a summer wedding, but you’re afraid of the heat? My next tip is plan for an evening wedding! Depending where you plan to have your wedding ceremony and reception, planning an evening wedding can make a huge difference temperature wise. Plus you can have a beautiful sunset ceremony. Talk about gorgeous pictures! You can also set up an event tent to not only provide shade, but event tents can come with fans to help circulate air providing a more comfortable environment for your guests to dance the night away.
Now let’s talk about my last tip for the best summer wedding, your send off! There are so many great send-off trends going around right now, but my favorite is the sparkling exit! Each guest gets a sparkler and lines up as you make your grand exit as husband and wife. Sparkler send offs are so much fun for you and your guests! Your guests get to be an interactive part of your wedding and they also get to help you capture the most gorgeous pictures! Our 36 inch sparklers are the perfect send-off sparklers, and they are virtually smokeless making them a photographers dream to photograph.
