9 Tips To Make Your Summer Wedding Perfect


9 Tips To Make Your Summer Wedding Perfect
Past the relationship right to a summer wedding by Incorporating “cool” things into your menu

1. Be considerate to your wedding party – You’ve chosen to have your wedding day during the summer. It’s beautiful, it’s everything you’ve ever dreamed of, and it’s hot as hell. Literally. It’s understandable that you want a traditional wedding, but don’t force the bridesmaids to wear floor length gowns or the groomsmen to wear tuxes. Its inconsiderate and level: bridezilla. If you want the men to get suited up, pick a less absorbent color like khaki. And for the ladies, chiffon is fine, as long as it’s strapless and doesn’t go to the ground.  

2. Take care of your guests – No one will deny you the spotlight on your big day, but be considerate to your guests. If you’re having an outdoor wedding, make sure to either warn your guests to prepare for the heat or provide them with a little care package. Sunglasses are often cheap, especially if you buy them in bulk, and you can even get them monogramed with your initials. An alternative would be to provide them with folding fans. Whether paper or fabric, these can also be decorated to go with your wedding theme.

3. Choose your flowers wisely – Fresh flowers are beautiful but they can only withstand so much. While they make good centerpieces and seating decorations they are usually only seen during the ceremony, or are indoors. If you want your bouquets and boutonnières to last, perhaps choose something more permanent. Many websites such as offer beautiful alternatives to fresh flowers such as fabric or paper ones. It may seem like a tacky idea, but why not check a few of them out. Not only will you be able to keep them long after you’re married, but they also come in many beautiful designs and unusual colors.  

4. Pick a season-appropriate color palate – Planning your wedding a year in advance might make it difficult to determine what colors will be in the season of your wedding. However, picking a color that suits your personality may be better than choosing what’s “hot”. Coral may be telling of the times, but it may also be the color of every other wedding that same year. Stand out and pick colors that are true to you. If you love pastel hues, go with that theme. If sunflowers are your favorite, then work around the color yellow. Whatever you do, stay away from dark colors. You picked summer for a reason, make sure people can tell from the photos.
