You don’t need us to tell you why summer weddings are awesome. You get to wear the dress of your choice, rarely have to stress over bad weather, you can organize a beautiful outdoor wedding and you have many other perks that come along with the warm season. But we can provide some tips and tricks on how to choose the right decorations, food and drinks fit for a summer wedding.
Flowers are the base of every centerpiece for a summer wedding, but the major disadvantage is that they wither quite fast and don’t have the same fresh look after a few hours. But that doesn’t mean you should give up on flowers. It’s important to combine them with other decorative elements. You can choose from a multitude of colored candles, fruit decorations and even paper decorations or items made of light material that you can turn into elegant coronals. You can even use fairy lights to create a more romantic setting once the evening falls. For outdoor wedding receptions, we recommend Christmas lights that can be multicolored or in just one color that matches the rest of the venue.
Too choose the dominant colors, get inspired by the summer tones of yellow, orange and green. Yellow is the color of friendship and happiness. Purple-red is a royal color and can offer great elegance to your wedding. If you’ve decided upon a beach wedding, you need to combine white and blue. Make sure that once you have chosen the dominant colors for your wedding theme, you use them in as many wedding elements as possible.
Cold menus are the most appropriate ones for a summer wedding. A catering company can help you put together a menu fit for a summer wedding. Choose a menu that also expresses your own culinary likings but remember that summer weddings should come with light foods, like salads, rolls, chicken, fish and even dishes with cheese and fruits. Keywords: finger foods. The best deserts that you can serve are ice-cream specialties and you have so many different flavors to choose from! You can also opt for a chocolate fountain, macaroons arrangements and other French delicacies. As far as drinks are concerned, aside from your alcohol choices, you can opt for lemonade in as many fruit flavors as possible.
