Summer is here! And with it comes long days, short nights, and lots of love for all things in bloom.

It’s really the perfect time for relaxing sunsets and whimsical weddings.

A summer wedding date offers lots of opportunities to embrace this gorgeous season surrounded by the people you love.

Need some summer wedding inspiration? Here are some tips to help you plan.

Decorate with Macramé

Macramé decorations delicately enhance any ceremony and reception space and are an endearing symbol of “tying the knot.”

You can use macramé as a backdrop during the ceremony. Or use it as accent pieces for plant hangers to create a romantic bohemian vibe.

After the wedding ends, the plants can be offered as a gift for your guests as a symbol of your growing love.

Utilize Citrus Accents Wherever Possible

Nothing radiates summer more than sweet citrus accents. Try incorporating citrus accents into your summer color palette.

These accents easily integrate into your theme; bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces and even as cake decoration.

Even more, you can use citrus in water for surprising flavors or incorporate a custom citrus cocktail for your summer wedding theme.

These fresh fruits will be an unexpected twist your guests will love. 

Play Lawn Games
