Planning a wedding involves many decisions to be made, often within a specific time frame. Perhaps the biggest decision to make where a wedding is concerned is the date of the event – the date that will be the start of your new life.
Summer has traditionally been the most popular season for weddings, throughout the years and across the country. Visions of a beautiful summer day surrounded by nature have enticed many a new bride to choose this particular season as their special date.
If you’re thinking about a summer wedding, or have begun the planning stages, here are a few fun ideas to make your summer wedding celebration not only enjoyable, but memorable:
Icy treats – From popsicles to frozen drinks, nothing is more refreshing on a hot day than a cool treat. You can choose the type of treat you want, such afrozen fruit kebab, or rent a frozen drink machine to concoct a special drink. There are numerous options to incorporate cool treats into your particular theme.
Be creative with outdoor lighting – Lighting sets the mood as well as the tone, particularly in the evening. While white twinkle lights are traditionally used, you can incorporate creative ideas such as decorative tea light holders or colored lights that match your theme’s colors.
Offer guests goodies with a summer theme – From fans to keep cool to sunglasses that shield from the sun, wedding favors that celebrate the summer theme will be popular with guests! Think flip flops in the wedding colors, personalized sunscreen, or even insulated beverage holders.
Incorporate elements of summer flowers and fruits – The flowers that are known for blooming during the summer season in Pittsburgh are a beautiful way to incorporate natural elements that have a summer theme as well as pay homage to the area. Fruits such as watermelon, peaches, and pineapples can serve as tantalizing treats or make colorful table decorations.
Get creative with the food – Summer is known as the time of year to let down your hair and have fun! From a lemonade stand to an old-fashioned barbecue, let your imagination run with a menu that stands out as a tribute to the outdoors!
