Many brides have been dreaming of their wedding since they were little girls playing dress up. Once the big day becomes a reality, most already have a pretty good idea of what they want their dream day to look like. For those brides who have always envisioned a summer wedding, there are so many great ways to celebrate, beat the heat, and make their summer wedding one they and their guests will never forget!
Naked Cakes –
Overflowing with juicy berries and filled with light, fluffy buttercream, the naked cake is the ideal laid-back cake for the summer season. Edible flowers can also top your cake and bring some colour and floral summer vibes.
Nothing says summer like gorgeous wildflowers! These can be used throughout your special day, as table centerpieces, bridal party bouquets, or flower crowns and will be a beautiful pop of colour to help your event stand out. Eco-friendly confetti can be another way to use wildflowers. You can set up a confetti station where guests can fill paper cones with petals, herbs, and birdseed for a green alternative to traditional confetti.
Summer cocktails –
Fruity and refreshing is the key to summer beverages. Our cocktail mixologist can work with you to put together a great list of summer-inspired cocktails for your guests to enjoy on the day. When you get your wedding stationery designed, have a think about whether you would like matching cocktail menus printed for the place settings or bar area.
Room decor –
Pompoms, balloons and buntings are a great way to bring some colour and atmosphere to our beautiful functions rooms to match your wedding colour themes.
Pretty Parasols –
If your ceremony is outdoors then sourcing some parasols can keep your guests out of the sun, they also look super pretty and cute in the photographs.
Summer Colours –
Stay on trend with a hot summer colour palette! This year’s choice colours for the season include a gorgeous coral, earthy pinks & reds, a deep blue and a soft lilac. Yellows and greens also made the list, again with a more earthy undertone. Adding gorgeous splashes of colour to your decor is a brilliant way to bring the summer season into your event.
No matter how you decide to incorporate the season into your wedding, it’s sure to bring some summer sizzle to your big day and create memories that will last a lifetime!
