The wedding team always get so excited as we enter the months of June, July and August as it means lots more weddings – this year, we have 40 weddings during those three months! Over the years, we’ve seen some fantastic summer inspired ideas which we just had to share with you.
Accessories – there are so many fantastic ways to keep your guests ‘cool’ at Summer weddings – some of our favourites include sunglasses, which are a definite favourite with our grooms too!
Refresh your guests – be sure to take full advantage of the bright blue skies as a gorgeous wedding photo backdrop, whilst having your drinks reception’s outside! Rustic crates make a perfect drinks station, and have you thought about bringing some picnic rugs to lay out under the shade of the cooling trees?
Keep it cool – at a recent Ufton wedding, we saw a great idea which was to make the order of service into a fan, keeping your guests cool throughout the ceremony! Using craft sticks and card is a perfect idea for the budget conscious bride … it looks super effective too!
Summer treats – this gorgeous sunny weather is the PERFECT excuse (not that we need one!), to have an ice-cream van at your wedding. Ice pops would make a fantastic wedding favour, so check out our wonderful recommended suppliers.
Footwear – in this lovely summer heat, it might be an idea to provide some flip flops to your guests to ensure that the dance floor is busy all night long – especially for those opting for a ceilidh band!
Dress accordingly – finally, make sure that YOU both dress according to the weather. You definitely don’t want to have to sit out that final round of ‘Grease Lighting’ due to the heat. It might be an idea to have an evening wedding dress to change into.
