Summer is an excellent season for weddings. However, as a summer bride (or groom), you will want to make sure you make the most out of the season and your wedding timeline with the ups and downs of these fabulous months.
What are some of the most important tips to keep in mind as a summer bride or groom? We have gathered all of them below – so read on and find out more.
· This is valid all year round, but it can be quite important during the summer, when time simply flows differently, consider your venue’s end time. According to the contract you will sign with your wedding venue, you will have a start time and an end time on your wedding (ceremony + reception alike). Remember this time and calculate backwards so you know how much time you will need for the different parts of the wedding and when it is appropriate to start your ceremony.
· Consider the weather. Obviously, you can only see the weather forecast so far in advance, but what you can do, however, is plan for any potential changes. For instance, heat might be an issue during summer days, especially towards midday. Avoid seating your guests directly in the sun. If possible, try to either set the wedding ceremony later in the evening (if it happens outdoors, of course) or plan to give your guests some shade. Same goes for rain, if you are worried in the slightest due to your area don’t forget a rain plan. Whether that entails renting a tent or simply moving the ceremony or reception, you should of course plan ahead for this.
· Plan for the magic moments. Like it or not, most magic moments don’t just happen – they are carefully directed. So, if you want to take romantic photos during the “golden hour” or if you simply want the glorious sunset to be the shining back drop to your wedding vows, plan for it. Make sure to search for the sunset time for your specific wedding date and plan according to that. It will be worth the extra effort.
