Sunny Summer Wedding
Are you getting married outdoors during the “sunny summer” season with nature as the background?
If you’re getting married outside set up a beverage station with pitchers of ice water with lemons, lemonade and ice tea for your guest to sip on and keep cool before the wedding ceremony begins. Don’t forget about the kids too. If you’re having children at your wedding be sure to have a “kid friendly” beverage too.
Candy Buffets continue to be a popular trend with today’s bride. A candy bar or buffet at the reception that can serve as favors and as well as decorations. Fill large clear containers with bright colored candy in yellow, orange, and white candy to coordinate with the warm colors of the season.
Decorate the reception table with the bright color flowers of the season. Instead of using fresh cut flowers which can be so expensive consult with your local nursery or garden center for tips on potted flowering plants that will be in season for your wedding.
Fan Favors not only make great favors for your guests but are a sure way to keep them cool during an outside wedding ceremony and/or reception. The fans can either be set in a basket at the back of the ceremony location or you can put 1 fan on each chair which will add great color to your wedding photos.
