Think of summer weddings and you can imagine beautiful ceremonies with manicured lawns, romantic barbecues, and beautiful color schemes. If summer is your season, you’ll enjoy this quick guide to planning a summer wedding.
Choose a venue with great outdoor space
If you’ve set a summer date for your big day, make the most of the weather with a venue that can offer you spaces, both inside and out. For example, you might want to offer welcome drinks in a pretty courtyard or you can organize playing garden games on a lawn.
Plan your ceremony
On a beautiful summer day, you might even consider having the marriage ceremony outside. Check with the venue if they have an outdoor area licensed for civil ceremonies.
Arrange outdoor activities
Make the most of every outdoor space to celebrate your big day. You have so many options at a venue that offers outdoor space – have the ceremony outside, enjoy welcome drinks on the lawn and delight your guests with a delicious barbecue or up to a few garden games on the lawn.
Utilize the season
Summer has so much to offer when it comes to flowers and food. Talk to your florist about the blooms in the season to make the most of your venue. Discuss with your caterer how you can serve the perfect summer menu and fabulous summer cocktails.
However, a few spots of rain may send you running for cover. Keep that in mind, and have a plan B so that move indoors if the weather turns.
