Planning Your Perfect Summer Wedding


If that special someone popped the question to you over the holidays, this summer may just be the perfect opportunity to get hitched, not that we mean to rush you! But just in case, here is a list of things that will help you start planning your dream summer wedding.

Summer Wedding Venue

This is the first thing you will have to decide on. Almost everything else, the theme, menu and décor, will depend on where you choose to get married. For outdoor wedding venues, our top pick would have to be a romantic beach wedding with a floral canopy for the ceremony. A well landscaped backyard or garden is also an excellent venue. If you choose an indoor wedding venue, make sure it has large windows to let in plenty of natural light in.

Summer Wedding Colours and Themes

The colours you choose for your wedding will not only serve as beautiful accents but will also set the mood for all the revelry. Place cards, candles, flowers, centrepieces, linens, bridesmaids¿ dresses: in all of the paraphernalia, stick to a few thematic colours that will stand out. Popular colour combinations for summer weddings include grey with accents of yellow, red or pink, and white with blue, green or yellow. For example, the wedding linen and place cards can be a gorgeous shade of grey while the flowers and candles can be orange, yellow, red or pink to provide pops of bright colour. Another popular summer wedding trend right now is to use various shades of the same colour for the wedding décor. Neutrals and pastels, of course, are classic summer wedding colours and you cannot go wrong with nude, powder pink, blue, and peach.

Summer Wedding Menu

It is best to keep the food light and non-greasy. Our first recommendation is a veggie and fruit salad bar with refreshing seasonal offerings. For appetisers, we recommend French bread with a variety of dips, summer rolls, bacon wrapped asparagus, prosciutto-basil crostinis, artichoke bruschetta, spring rolls, and hors d¿oeuvres. For the main course, consider a simple barbeque with a variety of grilled meat and seafood served with fresh veggies. For dessert, we recommend serving guests something in addition to the wedding cake. Our top pick would be ice creams, gelato, or sorbets in colours that match your wedding theme. In addition to the above, make sure your guests never run out of wine, cocktails, and champagne.

Those were just a few ideas to get you to start thinking about what you¿d like for your wedding. Whatever you choose, make sure to take advantage of the glorious weather, to keep the music going, to give the ceremony a personal touch, and to have a time of your life.
