Reasons to Have a Summer Wedding

10 Reasons to Have a Summer Wedding

Debating when to say “I do”? Here are a few ways that summer weddings win.

  1. Gardens bursting with blooms. Take your pick of flowers in any color imaginable. Will it be daisies, roses, poppies, or zinnias?
  2. The prettiest outdoor photos. Your wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses will pop against a backdrop of leafy trees, lush grass, or the shore.
  3. Ice cream! Sorbet! Popsicles! Help your guests cool off with an ice-cold dessert that’ll have everyone screaming for seconds.
  4. Hours and hours of sunlight. With the sun going down later into the evening, you can hold an outdoor ceremony in the evening and get gorgeous sunset photos.
  5. Flip-flops, sandals, and open-toed shoes. Show off a pedicure that matches your bridesmaids’ dresses, or have fun with nail art.
  6. From strapless to cap sleeves. There are tons of options for warm days. And, unless it’s unseasonably cool, you don’t have to worry about a jacket or a wrap!
  7. Fun with sunnies. Gift your bridal party —or all your guests—customized sunglasses so they won’t squint during the celebration (they also make for cute photo ops).
  8. Life-size lawn games. Set up horseshoes, croquet, or cornhole for added entertainment during cocktail hour.
  9. Dining and dancing under the stars. There’s nothing quite like eating al fresco and twirling on a dance floor lit up by the night sky and fireflies.
  10. A sparkler send-off. What better way to end your wedding day than with a brilliantly illuminated exit?
