Summer weddings are always more preferred because of the versatility in wedding themes and ideas during this time of the year. With the abundance of nature blooming in the surrounding area, a pleasant summer wedding is easier to put together. Not to mention, the beautiful warm outdoor weather is always conducive to a celebration and outdoor ceremonies.
The most popular theme for a summer wedding is
a beach themed wedding. For a beach themed wedding choose a public or
private beach for your wedding. Set the beach wedding theme from the
very beginning. Let the beach wedding theme reflect on your invitations
and stationary by adding sea side elements and decorations to them. You
will save on the wedding decorations for a beach themed wedding as the
beach itself will set the scene. Add subtle touches to your tables and
centerpieces with seashells.
For your menu, definitely seafood in
your menu and there are some fabulous wedding cake designs with a beach
theme. Select a cake topper that reflects seaside elements to tie it all
together. To top it all off make sure to give out wedding favors with a
beach theme such as a sea shell gel candle. The most fun part of a
beach wedding affair is picking out wedding favors. There is an
abundance of beach wedding favors to select from. For a formal beach
wedding give sand and seashell tea lights and use personalized
Adirondack chair tea light and place card holders to guide your guests
to their table at your beach wedding reception.
If you are having a
casual affair, give out seashell bottle openers or seashell gel candle
favors. Another great part about beach weddings is that you can
incorporate the beach theme into the bridal shower or bachelor party as a
precursor to the beach wedding. Fun beach bridal shower favors are
perfect pair flip flop candles or for a more elegant favor give French
lavender bath salts in a seashell. For the guys, tropical shirt candle
favors are great. One of the best beach wedding favor is for the bride
and groom to take on their honeymoon, Just Married Sandals. Just Married
Sandals are also great for the guests at a casual wedding on the beach.
