14 Great Summer Wedding Ideas

Posted on

Blogging about weddings causes us to come across thousands of fun and unique ideas every day. With summer wedding season in full swing, it seemed only pertinent to share some of our absolute favorite fun ideas that will make summer brides swoon. (We’ve seen some of these in Shadowland, but would love to see more used as inspiration in the Ballroom!) Our fourteen top details and/or ideas for warm-weathered nuptials in 2014 are:

1. Skip the cake, hire an ice cream truck (or Mimi’s) instead!

2. Your future is so bright, why not wear shades?


3. Craft a pinata to crack open on your first anniversary.


4. Feel love’s warmth with a sparkling send-off.


5. Go BIG with a super-sized paper flower as a bouquet.

7. Visit the local Farmers’ Market for centerpiece inspiration.
