Summer Wedding Ideas Part 2

With an abundance of sunshine and brilliant weather, it's no wonder the Summer months are the most popular choices to host a wedding. Here are some tips to help incorporate this beautiful season into your special day.

  • Take advantage of the weather and host your wedding outdoors (think local beach, garden or some one's backyard).
  • Say goodbye to tradition and host your reception in the late afternoon, or say your vows under a beautiful sunset.
  • Having your reception outdoors? Use torches and strings of lanterns to add some soft lighting to the outdoor venue and use floating candles to accent a nearby pool, pond or water feature.
  • For centre pieces, think about using fresh, whole fruits like lemons or limes in vases or freshly cut seasonal flowers.
  • Want a different kind of dessert? Nothing spells summer elegance better than a fruity sorbet instead of a heavy dessert.
