The number one tip for planning a summer wedding? Don’t be afraid to break the rules. Forget what you’ve heard about summer wedding dos and don’ts, and go your own way. Here, we debunk five summer wedding for good.
1. You have to have an Outdoor Wedding
If you live in a cooler part of the country where the lush, green months of summer are precious, it may seem like you absolutely must head outside for your summer wedding. But if an outdoor wedding isn’t what you’ve always dreamed of, an indoor space can be just as summery (and much more reliable). For one, if you’re in a super-hot climate, an indoor wedding will be way more comfortable for your guests who are dreading the heat. Beyond that, you can use your creativity and design skills to make an indoor space suit the season. Hang summer lanterns or create a summer flower-strewn indoor aisle, and choose a venue with large windows that let in lots of sunlight (or show off the moonlit night).
