3 Reasons to Love Summer Weddings

It is getting hot here in North Carolina... and it is only spring! All this gorgeous weather has us thinking about the rapidly approaching summer. Before we know it, summer will be here along with the sunshine, rising temperatures, and beautiful foliage it brings! All of these things make it an appealing time to have a wedding, whether outdoor or indoor. From bright colored decor and flowers, to delicious and refreshing fare for your guests to enjoy, what's not to love?

Here are some of our favorite ideas for summer weddings:

1. Refreshing, icy-cold lemonade for your guests. And you!

These handy mason jars of lemonade have the lid so they can stay cool while submerged in a bucket of ice. Guests can conveniently grab one and twist it open!

Brighten things up with a splash of pink, in your lemonade! You can't go wrong with these pink and white swirled paper straws either.

Instead of mason jars, try large resealable bottles customized with paper stickers to make this lemonade favor a more personal gift to your thirsty guests!

2. Fresh and Bright Centerpieces

Citrus and other fruits aren't just for eating! Incorporate fresh fruits into your summer wedding centerpieces. This works better for an indoor reception to avoid unwanted insects!

A contemporary and clean look with roses and fress grass.
A monochromatic centerpiece is very striking, especially in bright summer shades such as yellow, orange, or pink! stick with white accents to really make the color pop.

3. Light and delicious hors d'oeuvres

Bite sized pork and avocado tacos served in carved-out limes.
Who wants to be feel weighed down by heavy foods when it is 80 degrees outside? Try some light fare such as shrimp and crab salad served in cucumber slices or salmon on light pastry triangles.

How cute are these frozen sorbets served in citrus fruits with wooden spoon? A bright pop of color and a refreshing treat, all in one!
