How to plan the perfect summer wedding
Getting married in the summer is a popular choice. You are much more likely to enjoy sunny weather, meaning your photos will look great, your guests will stay warm and dry and you can enjoy a picture-perfect backdrop to your big day. But summer weddings are often the most expensive too, with venues, entertainers and caterers all upping their prices during the most popular months. To get the most out of a summer wedding, you'll want to plan far in advance and give plenty of thought to how you want to celebrate.
A great alternative to expensive hotels and specialist venues for your summer wedding is to make the most of the good weather and enjoy a simple outdoor wedding. Whether it's a marquee in a field or a magical ceremony in one of the inexpensive 'woodland glade' style venues springing up around the country, getting back to nature and tying the knot in the great outdoors is a fantastic way to celebrate without breaking the bank.
With summer weddings, you can incorporate the best of the season into your celebration. Why not plan for your guests to enjoy Pimms and canapes after the ceremony, or brighten up your colour scheme with accents of seasonal colours? Seasonal flowers make great table decorations and bouquets, while summery colours like yellow, green and blue make great choices for extras like bridesmaids' dresses, groomsmens' waistcoats and more.
