Seven easy ways to add a summery touch to your wedding day

Summer wedding decor ideas

If you're planning a summer wedding, infusing it with summery touches can elevate the ambiance and create a vibrant atmosphere that reflects the season's energy. From decor to attire to refreshing treats, incorporating elements inspired by summer can transform your special day into a sun-kissed celebration.

Here are some of our favourite sunkissed ideas to help you add summery touches to your wedding day.

1. Choose an outdoor venue

Consider choosing an outdoor venue to fully embrace the summertime vibe. Gardens, beaches or even a vineyard provide breathtaking backdrops, natural beauty, and ample sunlight.

2. Organise fun outdoor activities

Take advantage of the beautiful weather by incorporating fun outdoor activities into your wedding day. Set up lawn games such as croquet or giant Jenga to entertain your guests during cocktail hour.

Consider arranging an outdoor photo booth with summer-themed props to capture playful moments or perhaps get an ice cream van to come and serve up wedding day treats to your guest.

3. Wear a flower crown

A flower crown practically screams summer festivals, making it the perfect finishing touch for any boho bride getting hitched in the summer. Its natural, organic appeal perfectly complements the warm and sunny ambiance of a summer wedding. Coordinate the flowers in you bouquet with those in your crown for a full-on floral look.

4. Pick whimsical decor

Choose those elements that evoke the spirit of summer. Hang fairy lights, lanterns, and colourful bunting to create a festive ambiance. Incorporate natural elements such as seashells, starfish, or driftwood for a beach-themed wedding. Additionally, consider incorporating fresh flowers, fruits, and vibrant centrepieces to add pops of colour and fragrance to the overall setting.

5. Get lively with your colour choices

Opt for a vibrant colour palette that captures the essence of summer. Shades like coral, lemon yellow, turquoise, and mint green evoke feelings of joy and vitality, transforming even a British wedding venue into something much more tropical!

Incorporate these hues into your floral arrangements, table settings, invitations, and even bridesmaid dresses.

6. Add seasonal flavours to your menu

Design a menu that incorporates light and seasonal flavours. Include fresh salads, grilled seafood, and vibrant fruit platters. Offer a variety of chilled soups or gazpacho as appetisers. For dessert, consider serving tropical treats like coconut or passionfruit desserts and refreshing sorbets.

7. Serve summer cocktails

Quench your guests' thirst with refreshing, summer-soaked beverages. Create a signature cocktail inspired by the season, such as a citrus-infused mojito or a tropical punch.

For non-drinkers, offer a variety of infused water stations with refreshing flavours like cucumber and mint or strawberry and basil.
