Are you dreaming of sunset photos? Longing for an outdoor ceremony? Then summer is the perfect time for you to tie the knot. Of course weather varies based on geographical location, but across the board, summer has the most consistent weather of the four seasons. 

The venue options are endless.

Because the weather is so nice, your venue options are abundant. You can opt for an outdoor ceremony and an indoor reception or vice versa, or have the entire celebration outdoors! The summer heat and sunshine almost guarantee a beautiful day. 

More friends and family will be able to attend.

With less conflicting school and work schedules, summer weddings tend to have the biggest turnout. Memorial Day, Labor Day and 4th of July can be turned into long weekends for out of town guests. Couples who want as many of their loved ones to be there as possible may opt for a summer wedding for this reason.

You’ll have a bigger flower selection.

Summer offers a wide variety of flowers that wouldn’t be available otherwise. More flowers are in bloom between the months of June and August, so chances are, you’ll be able to get the flowers you want at a more reasonable price since they won’t have to be shipped in from somewhere else. Not to mention, the greenery will be gorgeous in your photos!

 While muted tones like blush and powder blue are gorgeous year round, summer gives you the freedom to play with any color pallet your heart desires! What better season to bust out beautiful bright blues, corals and yellows? You’ll even have the freedom to play around with these colors in your bouquet. 

Never-ending honeymoon options 

Most resorts across the world plan for summer to be their busiest season, so you can guarantee excellent hotel and shuttle service. Plus, you can bank on the weather being fabulous no matter where you go.

Since it stays light out longer, you’ll have ample opportunities to take photos outside. You’ll also be able to make the rounds at your reception and enjoy your dinner without having to worry about missing those gorgeous sunset shots. 

Summer weddings are always a hit, and we know that your special day will be no exception!
