As summer starts rolling in, you may want to take advantage of the bright, sunny weather and hold your special day outside. However, you may have heard a few rumors that might convince you that a summer wedding isn’t the best idea. That’s why we’re here to debunk a few summer wedding myths for you. 

Myth 1: The Heat Ruins Everything

While we don’t necessarily recommend having a large ice sculpture in the middle of an open field, there are plenty of ways to combat the summer heat. Resting food on ice, providing guests with fans and cold beverages, and having standing fans or air conditioning can make your guests forget it’s even warm outside.summer-wedding-serafina-at-the-ic

Myth 2: You Have to Have An Outdoor Wedding

While outdoor weddings are beautiful in summer, they’re not the only option. It’s entirely ok to have an indoor reception for your summer wedding. Maybe you just want to have your cocktail hour outside or simply your photos. Even if you don’t want to have any part of your big day outside, that’s alright too.

Myth 3: You Have to Keep Things Casual

You may think summer weddings mean barefoot in the grass and khaki pants, and while there’s nothing wrong with that, you’re still allowed to make your day a fancier affair. Summer weddings can be as relaxed or as formal as you’d like — it all depends on you and your honey’s preference.

Myth 4: You Have to Use Summery Colors

It’s true — many summer weddings use many pale colors, but you can use any colors you’d like when decorating. Try incorporating a mix of bold colors with subtle ones, such as red and off-white or royal blue and icy silver. You can also try mixing purples, oranges, and yellows for a pretty floral look.
