Tips For Planning Your Flawless Summer Wedding

Tips For Planning Your Flawless Summer Wedding

The long days and warm weather of summer provide a perfect setting for a wedding celebration. We’ve hosted countless summer weddings, each one unique in its beauty. If you’re planning to tie the knot during the summer season, here are some expert tips to ensure your flawless summer wedding is memorable!

Choose The Right Date And Venue

Summer is a popular season for weddings, so start by securing your date and venue early. The Park Savoy offers unforgettable garden views and an exquisite ballroom that create a romantic backdrop for both your ceremony and reception. Consider a weekday wedding if you’re flexible as you might find more availability and potentially better rates.

Plan For The Weather

Summer weather can be unpredictable. It can vary from cool evenings to sweltering afternoons. Ensure your guests’ comfort by choosing a venue that offers both indoor and outdoor spaces. This flexibility allows you to plan for an outdoor ceremony with the peace of mind that you can move indoors if needed. Also, you might want to consider providing amenities such as hand fans, parasols, and refreshment stations with chilled beverages will keep your guests comfortable even on the hottest days.

Embrace Seasonal Styles

Dress accordingly for the summer season. Lightweight fabrics for wedding attire, such as chiffon or linen, can help everyone stay cool. For the bridal party, consider shorter dresses or loose-fitting suits to keep cool while maintaining elegance. Additionally, embrace summer colors in your décor—think bright florals and airy pastels to complement the season’s natural beauty.

Timing Is Everything

Consider the timing of your wedding carefully to avoid the summer heat. A late afternoon or early evening ceremony when the sun is less intense provides natural, soft lighting and a cooler environment. This timing also sets the stage for spectacular golden hour or sunset photos that you can cherish forever.

Seasonal Menus And Refreshments

Work with your caterer to create a custom menu that reflects seasonal ingredients. Incorporate fresh, local ingredients like berries, melons, and vegetables into your dishes. You might also want to opt for lighter fare like grilled entrees, seafood, and a selection of salads. For drinks, consider refreshing cocktails with seasonal fruits, iced teas, or a lemonade bar which are perfect for keeping guests refreshed.

Incorporate Natural Beauty

Take advantage of the season’s natural splendor by incorporating local flowers and greenery into your décor. Seasonal blooms not only look beautiful but are also more sustainable and budget friendly. Our grounds are the perfect canvas for this, offering amazing landscapes that are especially vibrant in the summer months.

Prepare For Summer Evenings

Even during summer, evenings can get chilly. If your wedding extends into the evening, consider providing light blankets or wraps for your guests as they enjoy the stunning grounds. These can even be customized to match your wedding theme and double as thoughtful favors!
