summer wedding

We will not sur­prise any­one if we say that sum­mer is a very pop­u­lar time of the year for wed­dings. In sum­mer, it is almost cer­tain­ly warm, and even if the weath­er dete­ri­o­rates, then not for long, in just a cou­ple of hours, noth­ing will remind you of rain. Com­par­ing all the pros and cons of a sum­mer wed­ding, it can be revealed that it still has much more advan­tages than dis­ad­van­tages. In fact, there is only one minus for a wed­ding in the sum­mer — the like­li­hood of extreme heat on the day of the cel­e­bra­tion. But after all, it is impos­si­ble to pre­dict this in advance, so you can rely on the will of fate, and hope that the weath­er will still be good.

Of the advan­tages of a sum­mer wed­ding, one can note the abun­dance of fresh veg­eta­bles and fruits, long day­light hours, warm weath­er, dry roads (almost always), as well as a wide vari­ety of places where you can cel­e­brate a wed­ding in the sum­mer.

Sum­mer wed­ding ideas

Let’s say a few words about the pos­si­ble venues for the cel­e­bra­tion. They are not lim­it­ed to closed spaces, as is the case in win­ter. In sum­mer, you can safe­ly hold an orig­i­nal wed­ding in nature. To do this, you can rent a spe­cial house. Such an idea for a sum­mer wed­ding has not yet been beat­en, and you can move to a house or to fresh air, depend­ing on the weath­er.

If there are no suit­able hous­es in the area, then you can rent a sum­mer cafe with gaze­bos and a swim­ming pool. First­ly, if there is a reser­voir near­by (nat­ur­al or arti­fi­cial — it doesn’t mat­ter), then both guests and new­ly­weds will be much more com­fort­able dur­ing this hot sea­son. And sec­ond­ly, won­der­ful pho­tographs are obtained against the back­ground of water. If you decide to cel­e­brate your wed­ding by the pool, then arrange in advance with the man­age­ment of the insti­tu­tion the oppor­tu­ni­ty to swim in it. Since in the process of walk­ing it is pos­si­ble that the guests will become too fun, and they will want to cool off.

Dec­o­rat­ing a sum­mer wed­ding with fresh flow­ers is dan­ger­ous. Under the sun’s rays and in stuffy con­di­tions, they can with­er even before the start of the cel­e­bra­tion. There­fore, all dec­o­ra­tive ele­ments such as the wed­ding arch, columns, groom’s bou­ton­niere, etc. it is bet­ter to make from arti­fi­cial flow­ers.

It is also quite log­i­cal that it is bet­ter to make the bride’s wed­ding bou­quet “on a leg”, so that the stems of flow­ers are stuck into a spe­cial wet sponge, oth­er­wise the wed­ding bou­quet may with­er.

Where to celebrate a wedding in the summer

As for the places for a wed­ding pho­to shoot, they are not lim­it­ed by any­thing. Parks, ponds, forests, cityscapes, cafes, enter­tain­ment cen­ters, and pho­to stu­dios are suit­able for sum­mer. In a word, absolute­ly all your ideas can be real­ized dur­ing a sum­mer wed­ding pho­to shoot.

Sum­mer wed­ding menu

The main rule of the sum­mer menu is light and fresh (!) dish­es. The empha­sis is on the sec­ond word, since what was cooked in the morn­ing may already be spoiled by din­ner. There­fore, you need to make sure that, first­ly, all the ingre­di­ents are fresh, and sec­ond­ly, that the fin­ished dish­es are stored in the refrig­er­a­tor. Do not use high­ly fill­ing and fat­ty treats. The guests will eat lit­tle because of the heat, and if the dish­es are also heavy for the stom­ach, then they may even leave hun­gry.

What to wear to a sum­mer wed­ding?

A sum­mer wed­ding dress can be com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent, and it’s eas­i­er to say how it should not be. It should not be made of syn­thet­ic mate­r­i­al. We under­stand that you can’t do with­out syn­thet­ics in a wed­ding dress, but at least the inner lay­er of the dress should be nat­ur­al. Sec­ond­ly, you do not need to take a dress that is too closed. As a sum­mer dress for a wed­ding, it is bet­ter to choose a sun­dress than a bulky puffy dress with a bolero.

It is best to wear san­dals on your feet. And if you believe in super­sti­tion, then shoes. Boots, no mat­ter how light they are, will give you a lot of incon­ve­nience. There­fore, it is bet­ter to refuse them.
