There’s a reason most couples choose to get married during the summer months. Long days, warm weather, and beautiful flowers make the perfect backdrop for saying “I do.” If you’re planning a summer wedding, there is plenty of inspiration to draw on to get your creative juices flowing. From color, theme, and decor ideas to unique seating and floral arrangements, there’s no shortage of ways to make your summer wedding stand out and create a memorable experience for your guests. Here are some of the best summer wedding trends for your outdoor tent wedding.
Let Your Venue Shine
If your wedding venue offers a breathtaking backdrop for your special day, consider going with a minimalist decor theme. Letting your venue’s views be the centerpiece of your ceremony and reception will keep your decor from becoming over the top or distracting from the sweeping views. Consider opting for minimal aisle and reception decorations to let your amazing venue shine.
Invest in a Statement Arch for Your Ceremony
In the past couple of years, statement arches have become a go-to decor choice for couples—and for good reason. Spicing up your altar with an arch is a great way to create a magical backdrop for your vows. Not only is a statement arch a creative way to enhance your ceremony’s aesthetic, but it will also draw your guests’ attention to you and your partner as you stand underneath.
Game It Up
No outdoor wedding is complete without games for guests to play at the reception. If you’re planning an outdoor wedding, consider adding some lawn games for your guests to play at your party. Cornhole, life-size Jenga, and badminton are great games for keeping your guests entertained. You can even choose to customize your lawn games by painting them in your wedding’s color palette or engraving them with you and your partner’s names.
Get an Outdoor Tent for Your Reception
Outdoor tent weddings are a great choice for a summer wedding. Not only does a tent protect against the elements—such as unexpected rain or hot temperatures—but they also provide a blank canvas for showing off your wedding theme. Consider decorating the inside of your tent with string lights, creative flower arrangements, and fun centerpieces.
Handpicked Wildflower Bouquets
Choosing to create bouquets from wildflowers is a unique approach to creating your flower arrangements and will highlight the natural flora of your area. Whether you want to simply have wildflower bouquets for walking down the aisle or choose to make them a focal point of your decor, they’re a great way to add an eye-catching element to your summer wedding.
Give Your Guests Sparklers for Your Exit
Sparklers make for a magical sendoff. To add a whimsical finish to your wedding night, consider giving your guests sparklers to hold as you and your partner leave for the evening. Having your friends create a walkway lit with sparklers is the perfect way to end your reception.
