Planning to get married soon? or someone near and dear is about to get married, you should keep in mind that most popular time of the year when majority of people are getting hitched is from May through August. Summer weddings are full of sunshine and warmth, and allow you to get married outside in good weather. Take full advantage of the season and all it has to offer you when planning your summer wedding with these tips by Chandra Weddings.
1.The Setting for the Wedding
Summer weddings are ripe for an outdoor setting such as a beach, a garden, or a beautiful yard. After knowing your thoughts and choices, we will help you choose most suitable spot for you. Take advantage of the long days with an afternoon wedding, or highlight wonderful dusks by saying your vows as the sun goes down behind you. You can use fresh fruits and vegetables to decorate in your flower arrangements. Also, bring light to an evening wedding with torches and strings of lanterns in the trees.
You can’t go wrong with an abundance of flowers at a summer wedding. There are so many varieties in season, you may have a tough time narrowing your choices down. Fill the scene with bright and cheerful flowers such as roses, sunflowers, red and yellow lilies, dahlias etc. An alternative idea is an airy summer look with mostly white and light coloured flowers such as roses, elegant white calla lilies, huge and fragrant hydrangea, and Shasta daisies.
3.Summer Wedding’s Dresses
The bride who marries in the warmth of May, June, July or August is a lucky one as the majority of dresses that you’ll find are sleeveless and strapless, making them ideal for the hot season. Search for light fabrics such as organdy, linen, chiffon, crepe, georgette, and other lightweight silk, in order to not include an excessive amount of mass. You might choose brightly coloured dresses or short floral cocktail dresses for the bridesmaids to really evoke the season. For all the women in the bridal party, you must think about what heat, humidity, and moisture will do to your hair. The men in the bridal party can go for the classic navy blazer with khaki slacks or beautiful suits.
