The lovely summer weather should soon be approaching. Why not take advantage of the sunny weather and celebrate with outdoor weddings and do something a little different with the new wedding trends?
Check out our 13 creative outdoor wedding trends for this summer and make the celebration one that you and your guests will remember.
- Flower Crown
Forget the tiara. Celebrate summer with a crown made from your favorite, or native flowers.
- Fragrant Bouquet
Trending for 2019 are bouquets featuring dahlias, roses, lavender, peonies, wildflowers, poppies, and sunflowers.
- Bridesmaid Dresses
The color trends for summer 2019 are bright, rich, and bold. Consider shades of pink, yellow, red, and orange. Set the color and have your bridesmaids choose their own style.
Rather than confetti or rice, have your guests blow bubbles as you leave the ceremony.
Give your guests the option to shade themselves with small paper & wood parasols. Have a special message printed on the parasol to give your guests a keepsake they can take home with them.
- Garden Games
Keep your guests entertained during the reception. Giant Jenga, sack races or croquet. Make them as quirky, wild, or tame as you like.
- Wish Lanterns
As the sun sets, guests can join you, as you release wish lanterns into the evening sky.
- Food Stalls & Spreads
Rather than hire traditional caterers for a sit-down meal, organize a stall, alfresco spread, or themed buffet so guests can munch and mingle.
For dessert, what about a vintage ice cream bicycle cart?
- Drink Stalls, Bars & Carts
Allow your guests to help themselves by creating a mimosa bar cart, a gin bar, or alcohol-infused popsicles. Place beers into a vintage bathtub filled with ice. Create a colorful soda or fruit-infused water bar for the kids and non-drinkers.
- Wedding Cake
Naked cakes are trending this year. Forgo the icing and decorate with fruit and flowers. Don’t you like the cake? Try a tier of different seasonal fruit pies.
As the sun sets, colored paper lanterns, cafe lights, string chandeliers, or twinkle lights, strung from the trees will provide a romantic glow and keep the bugs away from your guests.
- Fire Pit
Create a chilled and rustic vibe or provide warmth after the sunsets.
Instead of a DJ, consider a live band, string quartet or acoustic guitarist
