Searching for a way to incorporate fun seasonal touches to your wedding day? We've come up with a few different ideas to help make your search a little easier.
June, July, and August are some of the hottest months of the year. They are also popular months to say "I Do"! Summer weddings means that one main concern is keeping your guest hydrated as they enjoy the wedding festivities. Adding some fresh cucumbers and lemons to your water is a perfect way to add a refreshing touch that any guest will love. Having some waters at the entrance of your ceremony site is another great way to keep your guests hydrated in the hot summer sun.
Adding some fresh fruit to your wedding cake is a great way to incorporate a light summer feel to your wedding day. Fresh berries add a pop of color and make for the perfect topping. Also adding fresh flowers to your cake is a great way to incorporate a summer feel to your wedding cake.

How precious are these? Incorporating bright colors or beautiful greenery into a flower crown to wear on your wedding day is the perfect touch of summer. It brings about a carefree feeling that is sure to remind guests of a time when they were kids creating flower crowns from dandelions without a care in the world. It creates such a unique and personal look for each bride as they express their personality in the florals they choose to wear.
Did someone say cocktail hour? Having a light and refreshing cocktail such as Blackberry Bourbon Ice Tea or a nice Watermelon Mai Tai is perfect for any summer wedding. Not having a cocktail hour but still want to incorporate a nice summer drink? Consider offering a fun drink option with dinner such as a cherry limeade or a traditional lemonade.
Bonfire and S'mores Bar:
Nothing says summer time like the smell of a bonfire or an ooey gooey S'mores bar. It's such a fun idea to add to any summer wedding. You don't always have to stick to the traditional s'mores either! Adding reeces or chocolate graham crackers is always a crowd pleaser. Both kids and adults love S'mores and having a bonfire to make them over also acts as the perfect bug repellent!
Sunset Pictures and Convertible Portraits:
We LOVE sunset and convertible pictures! It creates a unique picture to store away in your wedding album or blow up to place on the wall in your bedroom. It's a perfect way to capture the summer essence of your wedding day.
Have a summer wedding planned? Add some lawn games to the must have list for your wedding. It's a great way to keep your guests entertained and kids love it!
