Planning a Summer Wedding? Here’s What You Should be Doing Right Now

It is never too early to start planning and making decisions for a summer wedding. You soon will need to make a number of critical choices.  Here are suggestions for what you need to do now, while it is still spring:


Select your floral design. Although most florists can supply any flower any time of the year, it can be more cost-effective and personal to select flowers that are in season. Luckily, the summer months provide a plethora of beautiful blooms such assnapdragon, spider chrysanthemum, sunflower, freesia, bells of Ireland hydrangea and many more.

The Heat

Many summer weddings have an outdoor element, whether a ceremony on the beach or a tented reception under the stars. Be considerate of your guests’ comfort and add special touches such as palm fans, bottled water or parasols to shade the sun.

Signature Cocktail

Never is a signature cocktail more apropos than at a summer wedding. Your guests will crave a refreshing libation. Think light cocktails with mint, cucumber and mango.

Save the Date

It’s not too late to send out save-the-date requests. Summer is a busy travel season for most people, with family vacations and getaways already in the works. Be sure to give your guests ample time to save your important date.
