With summer fast approaching, it’s time once again to bring out those notepads and begin plans for your summer-themed wedding. If you’re looking to tie the knot during the warmest time of the year, you might think that your ideas should be limited to your sunny theme. This is a mistake too many brides and wedding planners make. Just because it’s summer, it doesn’t mean you have to box yourself in and stick to conventional ideas.
Here are some of the most common mistakes brides and planners make when organizing a wedding.
Sticking to the Outdoors
Let’s face it, even during the summer some parts of Canada are still pretty cool—literally. Summer weddings don’t need to take place outdoors you know. If you’ve always wanted an intimate indoor ceremony, you can still have one with a dash of summer. Indoor weddings with air-conditioning even make sense, especially for those who live in tropical areas where the summer months can be dreadfully hot.
This brings us to our next point.
The Summer Heat Ruins Everything
We’re not going to say this is completely untrue, because heat and weddings can often spell disaster. But with careful planning, you can easily stay a step ahead of the weather. Everything from the flowers, the dress, the linens and the food can be pre-selected for a summer wedding.
Making Use of “summery” Colours
You see this all the time. Summer weddings often mean making use of warm, vibrant colours. This doesn’t have to be the case. If bold colours aren’t your thing, then by all means, pick a more subdued colour scheme for your wedding. You can still have a summer theme by stick to the basic whites, combining it with lush greens and elegant earth tones. Think forestry.
