One of the great things about summer weddings is the opportunity to move parts, or all of your big day outdoors. We also know in the UK that the weather can be a bit hit and miss so the use of marquees and/or a careful choice of venue can mean that you can have the wedding of your dreams without it being blighted by the rain.
Another great thing about summer weddings is that you can represent this most celebratory of seasons in the food and drink you offer your guests, and in the entertainment and atmosphere that accompanies your wedding reception and/or wedding party. Summer is a time for bright colours, vibrant and exciting flavours, creativity and celebration. Here are three ideas that can help bring a summer wedding party to life:
1. A Gin & Cocktail Bar
Bring a bit of added style, glamour and fun to your wedding drinks by making the most of the multiple flavours of gin, cocktails and mocktails that could delight your guests. You could even have your own signature wedding cocktail that your guests can sample to help celebrate your big day, and it can as individual as you are.
2. Garden Games
One fun way to make weddings truly memorable is to get your guests to interact, and to offer them experiences that they can share and enjoy together as a group. You could even give your wedding party a summer fete theme and feel with games, snacks and drinks that draw upon your own happy memories of being at outdoor events in the sunshine. Good weather means that garden games can provide the fun, competition and excitement that can bring all your guests of all ages together, whether they’re taking part, cheering on those taking part, or just enjoying the spectacle.
3. Photo Backdrop
Set aside a photo backdrop area that you can decorate, and that provides a snapshot of your guests and groups of your friends and family – a bit like a photo booth, but outdoors. It could be a decorated arch and/or area with props and seating that can provide fun photos that will evoke memories of your special day that everyone can keep and look back on with happiness.
Choosing the right wedding catering company is one of the most important things you can do to make your big day as special as you had always hoped it would be.
