Deciding on the right wedding theme to complement your big-day can be difficult. Should you opt for a colour, or perhaps something you love – like sports; or maybe an era, such as the 1950s could influence your wedding style? One theme that we can guarantee will never go out of fashion is the seasonal wedding. Embracing the colours, flowers and general feel of the moment, a summer wedding is pretty, bright and rather delightful. But how do you begin creating the summer wedding look? Let’s find out!

A simple starting point for any summer wedding theme is colour – and there’s lots of it during these bright and beautiful months. Flamingo pinks, buttercup yellows, striking oranges and blue skies come together to create a festival of colour and a feel of happiness on your wedding day. What’s more, finding the right flowers to match this look will be easy.

When we think of summer we dream of sandy beaches, blue waters and an ice cream in hand. A seaside-themed celebration is easier to create than you might think – even if you don’t live near the water. A tropical or seafood based menu would work for your main. For something more laid back opt for a barbecue or fish and chips. When it comes to your décor, glass bottles filled with sand, pebbles and shells and quirky boat-themed accessories will all come together to create your coastal dream.

With summer welcoming all those fantastic festivals, it makes sense to enjoy your very own wedfest. Think outside the box when it comes to your venue and consider hiring a barn, marquee or tipi. Opt for bright colours, garden games and lots of entertainment. Your food choices don’t have to be formal either – street food fare or a hog roast is guaranteed to go down a treat!
Vintage wedding themes have been in for a while now and there’s no sign of them loosing popularity. Summer is a fantastic time to showcase a vintage wedding theme with an English country garden affair. To create this look, flowers and vintage props will need to feature heavily in your design. It’s also worth considering a vintage-themed menu with a scrumptious afternoon tea.
