Sophisticated BrightsBright colors are great for summer, but if you aren’t careful it could look like a wedding circus tent (which could be a cute theme, actually … ). Keep it sophisticated and bright by pairing up just a couple bright hues alone or with an accent color. Pink and orange are popular shades for summer, along with bright blues and beach-y greens. Carry these colors through your centerpieces and floral arrangements to create a wonderful, pulled together look.
Chill MusicWhen looking for your band, a trending option is to find a group who keeps it chill. This works especially well at our Lake of the Ozarks winery. We love to have a chill atmosphere with live music on the patio and a glass of wine in our hands. If this sounds like the ideal Lake of the Ozarks wedding venue, we’d love to help you start planning!
Exciting New ThemesBeach and garden themes are always a huge hit in the summer but don’t be afraid to take a personal spin. Think of a place that you and your significant other always enjoy going (like your favorite winery, perhaps *wink*), and then bring pieces of that into your design. If you have a specific beach where you took your first vacation or a place you love to enjoy nature in - it can be a wonderful inspiration. Better yet, plan something around your honeymoon destination!
Surprise InvitationsYou can always go traditional on your wedding invitations, OR, you could do something fun and surprising! If your wedding colors include a bright teal, think about including that color in your invitation. You can use bright teal envelopes to add some fun pops of color.
Back to Basics CenterpiecesEco-friendly wedding decor is becoming a fun option - and one of the most interesting things brides are using is food! Summer weddings would be great with citrus as the centerpiece, along with grapes (obviously), or even hollowed out watermelons with floral arrangements inside. Of course, you can’t get more eco-friendly than repurposed wine bottles for floral arrangements. I would be quite the unique touch, wouldn’t it?
Wine SmoothiesSeriously, we can’t make this stuff up! Summer brides of 2018 are making these cold, frosty treats a huge hit at their weddings. You’ll be at the perfect place to make such a great statement, as well. Consider using the best Missouri wine for a delicious wine smoothie to serve at your wedding. It could be both a signature cocktail and a way to provide alcohol without quite the alcoholic punch.
More Than Just CakeIf you’re getting married in the summer, there are a few things to think about when it comes to cake. The first is if you’ll be having the reception outdoors and it’s going to be steamy. If so, you’ll want to opt for something that holds up to the heat well. After that, it’s really up to you! If you aren’t sure what flavor to choose, think of going with something that has a summer flair. Strawberries and cream, key lime pie, or orange with vanilla. The possibilities are endless. Better yet, see if you can hire an ice cream truck to stop by during the reception for an icy cold treat.
