Now that should come as no surprise because of the many beautiful local details and elements of nature you can highlight at your wedding. Are you convinced to plan a summer wedding yet? We’ve gathered 7 stunning summer-themed weddings you can take some inspiration from to do the trick. Happy planning!
1. Jetty and Mich
Nothing says summer quite like a destination wedding set in a private beach resort that’s been said to resemble paradise. Take a peek into Jetty and Mich’s wedding in Palawan and fall in love with all the tropical details. The bridesmaids were dressed in cool hues of orange and peach, which was complemented by the dashing groomsmen in beige suits. The bride’s accessories, the white parasols, and the wedding’s overall fresh style are some of the other details you won’t want to miss.
2. Christoph and Mica
This beach wedding was bursting with bright, summery colors of orange and yellow. The bride’s beautiful bouquet was an arrangement of pink and orange flowers wrapped together by green leaves. The bouquet was dominantly made from the birds of paradise, which is a beautiful flower that made the arrangement stand out even more. Not only did the bride’s bouquet fit the vibrant-colored wedding, but so did the bridesmaids in tangerine orange dresses. When choosing accent pieces for your wedding, it’s good to keep in mind certain details that will tie it all together. In this wedding for example, it was the birds of paradise flower that was consistently placed throughout the wedding details.
3. Richard and Joan
This classy summer wedding really set the mood for an indoor wedding. Despite not being able to have a destination wedding due to COVID-19 restrictions, you can still set the tone for you wedding, even when the location you planned for changes. Richard and Joan’s wedding had charming colors of orange, yellow, and green to liven the indoor wedding reception. It made you feel as if you were in a beautiful botanical garden, the only difference was that this was more grand than you could’ve possibly imagined. So if you’re ever in a situation where things don’t go as planned, there’s no need to worry! You can always bring the destination to you by adding certain tones and details that bring to life the theme you initially planned for. In this case, they brought nature indoors for that fun and fresh feel!
4. Ricardo and AM
The stunning hues of blue and green from this wedding really went well with the beach set-up. It was all smiles for this gorgeous wedding held in the island of El Nido, Palawan. Everything about this wedding was cohesive because the details were carefully put together, keeping in mind the surroundings of the tropical venue. The entourage donned light and breezy ensembles, which was the perfect choice for the ambiance. The groomsmen wore blue and beige, while the bridesmaids were dressed in white and light grey. When planning your wedding’s color palette, it’s good to keep in mind what colors are already present in your venue, and choose tones that complement, rather than overshadow, the natural hues.
5. Vince and Anika
Vince and Anika originally planned to get married in a beautiful El Nido resort too, but because of all the quarantine restrictions in place, they decided to plan an intimate ceremony closer to home. They made sure to bring the vibrance of the tropics to their special day, as seen in the bride’s stunning self-designed wedding dress and her fun and bright-colored bouquet. The fresh, colorful flowers were also present in their wedding cakes and the dainty and minimalist table arrangements.
6. Michael and Kath
This intimate wedding may have been set in a living room, but thanks to this couple’s creativity and some professional styling, they were able to transform the space into a unique and summery venue. The peach and pink color palette breathed life into the room, but it was the use of fruit accents that made the tablescape really stand out. Why not consider using locally sourced fruits as part of your centerpieces for a more affordable and sustainable alternative to flowers? The result is a refreshing spread that’s pretty look at and tasty to snack on too!
7. Wed and Melissa
The details of Wed and Melissa’s beach wedding were so well put together. Their wedding invitation had a beautiful paper mache design that served as a cover to the invites and that design was seen all throughout the wedding! Try and spot the wooden fans placed on top of their guests’ seats and the paper mache design with the couple’s names placed on top of the wedding cake. We also loved how Melissa’s hair was beautifully pinned up on one side with a floral arrangement crown. As for the overall styling of the wedding, you can take inspiration from how the neutral colors helped bring out the natural beauty of their surroundings.
