These summer wedding ideas are a great way to make your day as fabulous as it should be. The sun is out and the birds are chirping. What could be more right?
1. Sunny Cocktails
Nothing says summer more than a bright pink cocktail. Get creative and add an umbrella or some cherries for that timeless summer vibe.
Having a list of about five feature cocktails for your big day is a great way to simplify the bar menu. Make things fruity and fun! Ingenuity is key followed by some die-hard classics. Is a cosmo ever a bad idea?
Formal can also be fun! It might sound silly but it could be a throwback as if I remember correctly prom was also formal. But black tie doesn’t have to be stressful. If it is a formal wedding make other features less formal like having a buffet and mingle instead of a sit-down.
Colors maybe aren’t your vibe if you are going for a more traditional wedding feel. But since it is the summer and anything is possible why not reach for a red or pink dress? It is fun and bright so you really will stand out. And you are the bride so isn’t that the whole point?
Wedding ideas don’t have to be dramatic and over the top. They can be simple things like making your invitations vacation themed with the towels and little bottles of vodka. Add in a mini umbrella and some sunscreen and viola.
Having your wedding on the beach may be a little too simple for you. So make it an extravagant wedding on the beach with a barbeque and seashells. It is a great way to make things more simple and if the vibe is relaxing then maybe you will actually relax.
6. Garden Party
Go all out with the picnic blankets and little tea sandwiches. Liven it up by making it very posh 1940s. Sophisticated and elegant. Add rows of fairy lights and a vibrant bouquet for you to throw when it is all over!
Maybe you are crafty and maybe you are not but DIY decorations can be super cute. Decide on how simple you want to go and make a day of it. Prebachelorettee party arts and crafts! Banners and tea lights are always timeless. Use some twine for a homey feel and really personalize the event. This is also one of the most cost-effective wedding ideas!
8. Wedding book
As polaroids are a fun way to save memories why not have your guest take a picture and then tape it in your book? It is a better way to save memories than the boring old “congratulations” signed over and over.
Make it a theme! Some people won’t like it but it is your day. If you want to make it 80s or 90s themed and dress up like you are 5 again then do it. Your invitations can be on disco balls and Elvis can be your minister.
A bonfire is a nice way to mellow out the night. Drinks are flowing and music is playing what else do you need? Make it small so it doesn’t get out of hand but add a smores bar if you wish.
It is cute and aesthetic appealing but considers with the dynamic of a bonfire. Wedding ideas can be big or small. And what screams summer more than a bonfire.
