Outdoor Wedding Trends for Summer

The onset of longer days and the beginning of beach weather heralds the start of another popular summer occurrence – weddings. Traditionally, almost one third of American nuptials take place during the summer months of June, July and August, with June alone accounting for almost 11 percent.

There are so many possibilities when you decide to hold an outdoor summer wedding at your estate rental. Take advantage of a glorious summer day or use the night sky to light your way; you can even include traditional summer time treats for your guests in honor of the season.

Open Air Reception Tent

The summer months are bursting with color. Imagine exchanging your wedding vows under a perfect azure sky; having flowers abloom in the background for your wedding pictures, and dancing in the cool summer breeze. Under an open tent on a clear summer day, every aspect of your wedding day will feel like a celebration – as indeed, it should.

Sunset Ceremony

Time your ceremony carefully and you can be proclaimed husband and wife just as the sun sets at the end of a perfect summer day. If you are also having your evening wedding reception outdoors, then set up a clear tent so you and your guests can dine under the stars. At the end of the festivities, your guests can give you a proper send-off with glittering sparklers as the moon and stars light up the night-time sky.

Gourmet Sweets for your Guests

Late-night snacks have become a popular wedding trend. For your elegant summer time wedding, consider offering guests gourmet s’mores to cap off an unforgettable night. Use creamy Belgian chocolate instead of an old-fashioned chocolate bar and infuse your homemade marshmallows with Lillet Blanc to create a more sophisticated version of this childhood summer staple.
