Summer Wedding Ideas

Summer Wedding Ideas

Planning a magical summer wedding involves a picturesque wedding venue, a little inspiration and collaboration with some talented wedding designers. The summer brings vibrant colors, romantic flowers and rustic weddings. Let's get inspired by these summer wedding ideas.

Creating the Mood with Color

Summer is known for all of the color it brings to every occasion. Since color is just an illusion that exists in the perception of each individual, it can be challenging to create the perfect palette. Depending on which end of the spectrum a color finds its home, it can be warm or cool with an entirely different experience to explore. Warm colors are the bright end of the color wheel with reds and oranges. They can be exhilarating and stimulating. Cool colors are on the more relaxing side with blues and greens. Since this is your wedding day, you get to choose how you want to create the moment.

Summer Wedding Ideas for Color

These summer wedding ideas for color will help you build a palette. Green exists everywhere in nature, making it a neutral color that complements every other color. Pink is one of the most popular summer wedding colors. Pink blooms fill summer gardens, including those romantic cherry blossom trees. Peonies and camellia are all about pink. Yellow is associated with friendliness and happiness, making it a popular choice. Purple and all of its beautiful shades have different associations. It is not warm, nor cool, but a mix of both. It finds itself somewhere between red and blue, and in the midst of associations with romance, nature and royalty. This tranquil color is associated with luxury and evokes creativity.

Summer Wedding Ideas for Flowers

Exploring a summer garden can provide endless summer wedding ideas for flowers. You might consider filling your wedding venue with calla lilies, peonies, roses and hydrangeas. Hydrangeas provide a variety of color and volume to centerpieces and bouquets. Just keep in mind that hydrangeas are sensitive to heat. Amaranthus are those droopy and versatile flowers that complement bouquets and décor. They vary from a reddish-rose to a purplish-pink. Tulips, sweet pea, English garden roses and peonies are perfect for adding summer wedding colors to your tables. Ranunculus are elegant summer blooms that bring a variety of color from red and orange to pink and yellow. Sunflowers infuse yellow and happiness into the space. Roses, orchids and daisies make beautiful bouquets and floral arrangements for summer weddings. Bring in the pink of summer with cherry blossom trees. If you want to incorporate green accents, consider decorating your wedding arch and tables with eucalyptus garland. Add a little purple with clusters of crocus and lilac.

Wedding Cake Ideas

Summer wedding cakes include earthy elements with those beautiful summer colors. Add layers of summer flowers and fruit, and create torn edges in the fondant or icing for a little texture. If you want a rustic summer wedding, let the layers of cake peek through with a thin layer that gives it that semi-nude effect. Marbling your summer colors within the icing is a way to add a little more color. To create a classic and elegant look, fully cover the cake in a smooth layer of white fondant and use minimal designs. Instead of marbling, add a belt of gold and a couple summer blooms as an accent.

Summer Wedding Ideas for Attire

These summer wedding ideas for attire add rustic elements to the romantic affair. In the absence of a formal jacket, consider a dress shirt with a vest instead. Accent your cuffs with wooden cufflinks. Go with a tie or without, but wear the boutonniere to match your bride. Rustic themes approve polished cowboy boots and matching hats. Incorporate tweed fabrics and suspenders into your ensemble to complete the look. Whether ballgown or empire silhouette, let your veil or headpiece complete the look. Consider simple flowers or a halo wedding veil. The circle cut veil crowns the head with a wreath-shaped wire that attaches to the veil. The vintage look is simple with a Bohemian flair. Accessorizing with cowgirl boots is completely acceptable.
