Summer is almost everyone’s favorite season to exchange “I dos.” It gives an idea of sunshine, toasty weather and lots of bright bold colors. Summer exudes warmth, happiness and lots of joy and cheer.
If you’re thinking of having a summer themed wedding, consider elegant and urbane bright colors. Just two bright shades will do the trick. To achieve the classic wedding look, choose two major colors plus one to sprinkle some color accent.
Combine the colors of orange and olive green then splash a little bit of red perhaps? Or you can opt for bold red instead.
Garden-inspired weddings and beach motifs are typical themes for a summer wedding. However, it wouldn’t hurt if you opt for a mountain theme – that is if it’s mountain climbing is your hobby.
The idea is to go for a theme that showcases your favorite pastime or leisure pursuits. Other popular summer themed weddings are rustic windswept prairie and quaint English Tea-inspired weddings.
After you’ve decided on the color and theme of your summer wedding, go for a surprising twist on your invitations. Use ecru print on a hot pink paper. Or go for fabric in your invites to give a summer vibe.
Now, it’s time to pick out the music to set the romantic summer ambiance –look for lively summer music styles for the dance. Go for a string ensemble or a plain piano to accompany the guests during cocktails. If you go for a beach-inspired wedding, throw in some sounds of the ukulele to radiate the beach side feel. Use an upbeat rhythm during the dance to make it summery lively.
To jazz up the venue, go for decorative paper lanterns, bouquets of simple mono-chromatic flowers. Go for one color scheme or two to create a pulled-together look.
Use jars to hold the tea lights – as long as your theme is rustic and country look. Or use wooden vases with real grass or moss as your table’s centerpiece. Or why not use an edible centerpiece – like oranges or lemons with other vegetables and fruits in season. Or why not use a seashell bouquet to prettify your tables?
For the wedding feast, choose organic home style cooking like roasted pork or chicken or grilled fish. Serve good bottles of wine. For the wedding cake, go for chocolate. Hands down, it’s still everyone’s all-time favorite. However, go for flavors that inspire the thought of summer – like lemon and orange and strawberries with whipped cream.
Finally, for your favors, choose eco-friendly stuff like herbs in recycled cans or glass jars or flower seeds in pretty brown paper bags with fancy strings.
