One of the first things to consider when planning your wedding is the theme. Do you want your wedding to be romantic and classical, or is your style innovative and modern? The theme you choose will guide you as you select your dress, choose your flowers, and plan your reception. Here are some perfect wedding themes for summer that we think you are going to love!
Summertime is when many people head to the beach, so a tropical themed wedding is perfect for this time of year. Even if you are not having a beachfront or waters-edge wedding, you can still incorporate elements of this theme into your event. Opt for lush, tropical flowers like hibiscus and birds of paradise for your florals. Choose rich emerald and aqua colors for your bridesmaids’ dresses and decor. Then be sure to book a tropical honeymoon to cap off the perfect beach-themed day!
Stars and Stripes Theme
Summer is home to many American holidays. If you are planning a Fourth of July, Labor Day, or similar wedding, why not create a stars and stripes themed event? A classic hangar dance would make a fun reception setting. You might even use a flag as a photo backdrop and incorporate red, white, and blue with your theme. Sparklers and fireworks are a fun way to cap off your event as well!
Farm Fresh Berries Theme
If your style is more rustic or you want a farm or barn event, give this popular theme a summer twist. A berry theme will fit in nicely with a rustic wedding. Add strawberries to your cake instead of or in addition to florals. Add berries to bouquets, floral arrangements, and centerpieces. Red, mauve, pink, purple, and blue are all colors that work nicely with this theme, as well. This fresh summer twist on the traditional is something that will set your event apart from all of the other rustic weddings that your guests may go to this year.
Summer weather is perfect for an outdoor event in a lush garden setting. Botanical gardens are one beautiful option for a garden themed summer wedding. Beautiful backyards and museum grounds offer another option for gorgeous garden settings. Bright, beautiful florals are abundant in summer and will provide a cheery (and fragrant!) tone to your event.
Embrace a colorful theme for your summer wedding if that fits your personalities! Create a unique, party atmosphere at your event when you bring in lots of colors. Rainbows are one way to create a colorful wedding theme. Another fun summer theme that is colorful is a carnival wedding event. Museums also offer a more modern way to host a colorful wedding theme, if that is your preference. Whichever way you go, let your personality shine with this summer wedding theme!
