Oh, they say when you marry in June, you're a bride all your life.
And the bridegroom who marries in June gets a sweetheart for a wife.
The old adage from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers insists that June is the month to marry, and what a pretty month for it! Beautiful flowers, sunshine and green leaves everywhere. No matter what month you marry, this is the season for outdoor weddings. Though the outdoors are fairly decorated without any help from us, there are always some fun little details you can add to make it your own! We would LOVE for you to spend your special day at the best wedding venue at the Lake of the Ozarks. Here are a few fun ideas for your upcoming outdoor wedding to get you inspired!
1. Include your Photos
By including photos in your wedding decor, you show people the journey that has led up to this special day! Don't be afraid to incorporate selfies, date nights, cheesy smiles, and fun memories! There are many fun ways to display the photos as well. You can wrap string around trees and clip your images on with little clothespins, hang them between trees, and use them in your centerpieces. Get creative with all the ways you can use your favorite memories!
2. Outdoor Lighting
There are many ways to incorporate a romantic ambiance to your wedding through lighting. Even though the sun doesn't set until later in the evening during the summer, you'll want something planned for the reception. You can string Christmas lights around the property for a fun twinkle. Another neat option is to put solar sidewalk lights inside a lampshade! They'll kick on when the evening strikes, and will add a fun maintenance free, fire free atmosphere. You can place table lamps on the reception tables, or make a fun photo booth area with a standing lamp!
3. Hanging CandlesHanging jars with candles in them, whether battery or wax is always a fun way to add a warm glow and make a scene look full. You can hang them above your wedding arbor, place them down the aisle, or on tables. If you use wax candles, make sure to designate someone to light them ahead of time! You don't want to be in the middle of your vows and realize the candles aren't lit!
4. Flowers & BucketsFilling a bucket with flowers can be an easy way to decorate your aisle, reception tables, or even your food tables. Buckets are easy to find at your local stores and can be quite economic. Fill them with beautiful wild flowers that are common during the summer! Don't forget to put a little water in the bottom to keep them fresh.
5. Sidewalk ChalkIf your wedding venue has sidewalks, a neat way to direct your guests to the ceremony or the reception is with sidewalk chalk! If you aren't artsy, you can used stencils to make it look perfect. Hearts scattered all the way down, arrows, initials, your wedding date, all the fun dates that mark your relationship or even "self portraits" are all ways to keep it fun and give your guests something to smile about as they walk to their destination!
