Often times when people get married in the summer, they think they are limited to the typical beach or pool-side wedding. But that is not the case. You have just as many options as someone getting married in any other season here are a few unique options.
Have a Picnic in an Orchard
Most people love to go to orchards in the summer, so having your wedding in a local orchard can be a very unique idea. You can have the opportunity to use your surroundings as your décor. Fill tall cylinder shaped vases with apples. Use mason jars as glasses. Fill tin cans with your eating utensils. Make it like a real picnic, just a little more elegant. Add tea lights throughout and light them at dusk for a soft glow. Hang lantern lights above the tables and around the perimeter. Keeping it simple is the key to a wedding like this. Having tons of knick-knacks around can make it look cluttered.
Serve foods that aren’t messy but give out that picnic vibe. Like finger sandwiches, different types of salads, even corn on the cob. And make sure you have tons of sun-tea! This will be a unique and memorable wedding for everyone.
Be Beautiful in a Botanical Garden
Botanical gardens are full of unique flowers and plants. There is no need to decorate. If you are looking for a romantic wedding, then this is your place. A small elegant ceremony with your closest family and friends is perfect for a location like this.
Keeping what décor you do have simple will not only keep cost down, but it won’t detract from the beauty of the garden. Serve a variety of cheeses and crackers with fresh fruit. A few summer sausages and salami’s will go well. Pitchers of Sangria, both white and red can be set at each table.
Sail Away on an Evening Cruise
Have you always wanted to have a beach wedding or an island wedding? Are the costs keeping you from doing it? How about another more unique way?
Having a wedding on an evening or sunset cruise might just be the answer. The common thread among these unique weddings is keeping it simple and small. Have a wedding with no more than 25 people and set sail on classy evening cruise. Views of the sunset are the backdrop to a wonderful evening. Once back from the cruise enjoy an elegant dinner with your intimate group of wedding guests.
Make your own Memories in a Museum
Looking for a more modern wedding? Have your ceremony and reception at your favorite museum. Keep it simple yet modern with a black and white theme with one vibrant accent color. Since there will be plenty of artwork to serve as décor, use plants and vases for extra pops of color.
Serve street food for dinner to keep with that artistic vibe. One main cocktail is all you will need. And instead of the traditional three-tiered wedding cake serve cupcakes. All of these things people can walk around with while enjoying themselves inside the museum.
Fly Away to Wedded Bliss
When I think of an airplane hangar, I instantly think of that old movie with the unending love affair. Where the fly away into the sunset, and live happily ever after. Why not create that for your wedding? Keep all the decorations classy and simple. Go with a fifties vibe. Have bowties and suspenders for the guys and high-waisted dresses and pearls for the ladies. Serve food that is classic, and make sure you have a bottle of bubbly at each table.
Swag lights and candles from the rafters. Play old school jazz in the background. And have your first dance to Nat King Cole. Make history and live the role of that young love affair. And don’t forget to fly away into the sunset.
No matter what you do for your wedding, remember that it is your wedding. And just as unique and special you are, make sure your wedding day is just as such.
