7 Amazing Summer Wedding Ideas

So we have had a little bit of warm weather this year already, who knows, that might just be the end of the summer in the UK but if you are planning your wedding for the summer months then we have 7 amazing summer wedding ideas, just in case the sun shines!

1) Mason Jars

Mason jars are popular with those who want to create a rustic, authentic theme on their big day. They are inexpensive and very flexible. You can use them to put candles in, flowers, hang from trees, place on tables or even to serve drinks in.

2) Get Married Outside At Night

The light, warm nights open up the opportunity to create a wedding experience with a real unique feel. Getting married outside in the evening is a brave thing to do but the atmosphere is truly beautiful for those that do. The great thing is you can literally go straight into the party after the magic words ‘I do’ have been spoken.

If you do decide to be bold this way then make sure you have a contingency plan, if the weather is wet, how will you shelter you and your guests?

3) Lawn Games

Outdoor Games

After a couple of afternoon drinks then lawn games can be a big hit. Bring out everyone’s competitive side and get the young and old doing activities together.  You don’t need a PE teacher to facilitate them (unless you have one among your guests who is keen), you just provide the space and the equipment and let your guests fight it out among themselves.

Ideas include;

  • Giant Jenga
  • Water Balloon Dodge Ball
  • Quoits
  • Bean Bag Toss
  • Giant Dominoes

4) Mix And Match Bright Colours

Colourful Outdoor Wedding

The summer is a time of year that is naturally full of vibrant, beautiful and bold colours so it seems appropriate to bring them into your wedding theme. Obvious colours include yellows, oranges, pinks and whites but blues and aqua can work equally well, conjuring up images of the seaside.

5) Have An Ice Cream Van

Ice Cream Van

An ice cream van is a fun addition to you wedding that everyone will love. Bring out the excited child in all your guests as they rush to get their cornettos. Even if the sun isn’t shining on your big day, an ice cream break will still be well received by all your guests as they cool down from the excitement of the day!

6) Fruity Cake

Fruity Cake

Incorporating fresh seasonal fruit into your summer cake provides you with a beautiful colourful pudding but even more importantly, they are delicious. If possible try to source them locally as this will mean they are even fresher and juicier on the day.

7) Don’t Forget The Contingency

Let’s not forget where we live. The UK is not famous for its glorious sunshine. Have contingencies prepared so that if it does rain your entire day won’t be a wash out. This could include handing out umbrellas, temporary shelter or alternative inside games on hand.
