Superb Summer Wedding Tips & Ideas

Summer officially begins next week, June 20, 2016. Today we've decided to offer a few of our favorite tips for summer weddings. Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches is an expert when it comes to your wedding fashions for every season, and over the years, we've picked up some great ideas to share with you.

Outdoor Events

We recently wrote a blog full of helpful ideas for an outdoor wedding. Summer weather calls to many people to get outside and enjoy the beauty of nature, but sometimes the days can get too hot for comfort. Make arrangements for ways that your guests can cool off if this happens. Programs that double as fans are helpful, covered, shaded areas can provide relief, and lots of water for everyone is a must.   

To keep your decor from melting or wilting away, think of alternatives to use in place of cut flowers. Broach bouquets are gorgeous and require no special care to keep looking fresh. Outdoor reception tables can incorporate vibrant summer fruits or floating candles as centerpieces. Plants that are easy to care for, like succulents, make lovely decorations too.

Go Indoors

Summer weddings are not required to take place outdoors. Don't pass up on that gorgeous ballroom you have always loved because people expect you to get married outside. Indoor weddings mean you don't have to make backup arrangements because of rain or extreme heat. If you are afraid you will miss out on the seasonal beauty, look for a venue with large windows and a breathtaking view. 

Staying Stylish

Whether you are indoors or outdoors, the clothing that you choose for everyone in your wedding party should be lighter and airier in the summer months. It's the perfect time for bare shoulders, lighter materials, and shorter hems. Don't forget the fellas. It's cruel to expect them to wear a heavy tuxedo jacket for long periods of time, especially if the ceremony and reception are outdoors. 

Fun Favor Ideas

Use the season to influence the types of wedding favors that you give to your guests. Sunglasses can be personalized and are the perfect item to be used all summer long. Drink koozies are a popular favor that will keep canned or bottled beverages cold. Flip-flops always come in handy in the summer, and using them as a wedding favor allows your guests to kick off their dress shoes while dancing and get comfortable.  

Light Refreshments

People tend to eat lighter during warm weather because a belly full of heavy foods is never comfortable on a hot day. Light foods still satisfy hunger, but without making a person feel weighed down and uncomfortable.

Chilled foods are also a welcome sight on a hot day. Fresh fruits, shrimp cocktail, and cheese trays are a nice, light way to start. When it comes to dessert, sno-cones or an ice cream bar will work nicely next to the wedding cake.   

If you are having a hard time finding the perfect fashions for your summertime South Florida wedding, or any other season, Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches can help you narrow down the choices and find exactly what you need. No matter which season you choose to say, "I do," we'll make sure you look your very best.
