We’ve witnessed many beautiful summer weddings over the years at 1451 Renaissance Place.  Here’s a list of some of our favorite summer wedding ideas that you can use in your wedding planning—or as inspiration for your own unique summer wedding!

Make your guests feel like they are in the middle of a summer field, in a beautiful summer garden, or in a tropical summer setting.  There are a million different ways to incorporate flowers into your summer wedding, so feel free way to make centerpieces that are completely, and uniquely, you.

We’ve had people tell us these lights look like dandelions at the end of summer, and it’s easy to see why—and why they’re one of our favorite summer wedding ideas.

Summer program fans

It’s beautiful and a really great way to keep your guests cool.  Have your program printed on paper that your guests can turn into a fan (with or without a hard stick!).

Lemonade, sundae bar, ice tea, corn on the cob…there are so many different options for summer wedding appetizers and dinners that are perfect for a fun seasonal wedding.

There’s a reason why we all look forward to summer: beautiful weather, warm sun, flowers… Even if you hold your wedding indoors (it’s safer than hedging your bets on the weather-and a lot more comfortable for your guests!), there’s no reason you can’t incorporate everything you love about summer into your beautiful wedding venue (we’ve given you ideas in our recent post).

The sky is the limit when it comes to wedding favors, so feel free to choose summer-themed favors like bubbles, summer drink mixes, and treats.

Choose a venue with a beautiful setting for outdoor photos that you can actually enjoy posing for (no shivering involved and a place with a cool reprieve after the outdoor heat).  For more summer wedding ideas, choose a wedding venue with an experienced staff that can give you more inspiration—and help you turn that inspiration into your own beautiful summer wedding.
