2. Vibrant color schemes
Next on our list of Top 5 Reasons to Have a Summer Wedding are vibrant color scheme options. Bright colors are always a popular choice for a summer wedding. Yellow, pink, poppy pink, blush, or hot pink are always good choices. Seafoam which is a pale green is another popular choice. Orange, baby blue, or cornflower blue, are a few more great options. And if you can’t decide on one color, there’s always the option to pick multiple ones that go together.
3. Seasonal flowers
Seasonal flowers come in at number 3 on our list of Top 5 Reasons to Have a Summer Wedding. No matter the season, flowers make such an impact on any wedding. But during the summer, there are so many options and flowers only bloom during that time. If you’re considering getting married in June, Roses, Delphinium and Gardenias are a good option. If an August wedding is more of your style, Protea, Zinnia, and Cosmos are all flowers that bloom in August.
4. Outdoor Ceremonies
Next on our list of Top 5 Reasons to Have a Summer Wedding are Outdoor Ceremonies. When most people think of an outdoor ceremony, they probably think of a beach wedding. However, if the beach setting does not match the theme, there are plenty of venue options that still have that outdoor setting. A really popular option is a venue with a rooftop bar. For more on this option, check out our blog post “The Top 5 Rooftop Venues.” Also, there is always the option to hold your reception outside as well.
5. Higher Guest Attendance
And last but not least, another great reason to have a summer wedding is that people are more likely to attend. Many people are vacationing during the summer, and their schedules are more flexible. Depending on where you choose to hold your summer wedding, you could give it a vacation vibe, even if the location is local to you and your guests. Most people love an excuse to get away, and a summer wedding is a perfect way to do that.
