One of the most anticipated season, A summer theme wedding definitely infuses joy and merriment in the heart of everyone. It should be no surprise therefore, that this particular season remains a firm favorite for weddings all across the world. Indeed, who doesn’t wish to get married in the great outdoors, serenaded by the soft chirping of birds?
A summer theme wedding might be the easiest to host but there are still a few things that couples should take into consideration in order to pull off the perfect ceremony. For starters, brides should bear in mind that not all wedding dresses are weather-appropriate for a summer wedding. A high-necked, long-sleeved puffy taffeta gown, for example, will most certainly result in unsightly stains of sweat all over your outfit. Hence, it’s recommended to go for lighter cuts and fabrics such as cotton, gauze, organza and lace. Guaranteed to keep you cool, a strapless, Grecian-style dress would be absolutely perfect for a summer wedding, especially if you’re having an outdoors ceremony.
Alternatively, some brides might even find it easier to beat the heat in a short wedding dress. This is particularly suited to beach or informal affairs. Another fantastic choice would be to go for an oblong frock, where the front hem plays above the knee while the back hem skims the floor. In fact, this particular style will not only keep you cool during a summer wedding but it’s also extremely suitable for long veils and trains.
Since it’s summer, couples shouldn’t hesitate to showcase a fabulous display of bright, vivid colors in the likes of green, turquoise, yellow, red, fuchsia, bright pink, pale brown, gold and other such hues. The bridal bouquet, for example, can be crafted using bright purple flowers with a couple of daisies nestled here and there. To create a homogenous look, don’t hesitate to dress up your bridesmaids in the same bright colors reflected in your wedding bouquet.
As far as the decorations go, try to go for anything that’s bright and sunny. A bunch of white flowers tied to each pew or chair will most definitely infuse a summery feel to your wedding- whether you’re throwing the ceremony indoors or outdoors. By the same token, don’t hesitate to dress up the wedding arch in sunflowers, red roses and the likes. Bear in mind that the main centerpieces of your summer wedding should revolve around flowers: they are, after all, the most potent symbolisms which show that winter’s finally over.
