Wedding Decor for a Perfect Summer Theme

There’s something about a summer party that reads fun. (The pool floats! The cocktails! The bright dresses!). That’s why summer is officially known as “wedding season”, right? Well, chances are, you’re either planning or attending a wedding this month or next. And to help you out, we put together an official guide to a summer themed wedding, and its wedding decor. No, this guide is not going to tell you how to master the swing dance, nail your toast, or look perfect (no makeup melting) at the altar. But it will tell you how to masterfully nail your summer wedding decor, and more.

Wedding dress and wedding colour, music, food and reception, invitations and venue, flowers, wedding decor and accessories – all these and more must be prepared for your wedding. And if you are not ready enough, any small mishap on one can put a big dent on your whole wedding celebration. But surely, you don’t want that to happen so you will try your best to make it perfect, especially if your wedding is in summer and your theme, summer. But what makes a summer themed wedding perfect?

To answer this question, you don’t have to go too far. All you have to do is to make sure that the elements in your wedding are given enough attention to details.

Wedding Dress and Wedding Colour

Summer always signifies the sun. So, there is no better way to associate summer to your wedding than by looking at the nature and seeing the effects of the sun on it. Your wedding dress should be fitted to the heat. A soft, silk white dress always gives beauty to the bride during summer wedding. Bright colors like oranges, yellows and reds that are often associated with harvest are some of the good choices of wedding colour.

Music Choice

Choosing music that celebrates your wedding, at the same time, suitable to the season should be your focus. Since summer is time to celebrate the sun, then make it more of a real celebration with dance and fast-beat music.

Food and Reception

The summer is the season where most tropical fruits grow so don’t forget to add a tropical flavor to your food. This applies whether you are holding your wedding reception at a beach resort or a restaurant. Speaking of reception, the most popular places where you can hold your summer theme wedding are the Caribbean, Hawaii and any tropical country or state where you can feel the heat of the sun. A beach resort is always a great choice.

Invitation and Venue

To make your invitation a genuinely summer themed wedding, then go for the elements that often symbolise it. Sand, seashell, and other related things are enough to highlight your wedding theme. Since invitation gives the guest the first impression and the idea of what to expect on your wedding, it is recommended that you make one that will capture your whole wedding theme. Popular venues for summer themed weddings are the beach, garden, camping sites, and of course, the church. Choose one that you think is the best for your wedding.
