Many couples crave the sun and the heat for their big day, which has given rise to summer being the most popular season to get married. Plus, more and more couples are jetting off to other countries in search of the perfect sun-kissed setting. So whether you’re planning on getting married at home or abroad, here’s your seasonal dose of sunshine wedding inspiration.
One of the most perfect colour schemes for your sunshine wedding is yellow and white. Bright and beautiful, these colours go with any theme; they’re particularly suited to beach weddings, which have the gorgeous backdrops of sand, sea, and sky. And you’ll find that some of the most beautiful flowers come in stunning shades of lemon, honey, and daffodil.
Accessorise your wedding look with sparkling jewellery or a more bohemian flower crown. Give the groom a colourful floral boutonniere and dress your bridesmaid in pretty summer colours.
You can host your sunny wedding pretty much anywhere. At home in the UK, choose a country manor house beside one of the UK’s beautiful lakes, meadows, or woodlands. If you’d like to venture abroad to a sandy beach or a tropical paradise, choose from stunning hotels and castles.
Another popular sunshine wedding theme is rustic or country. Host your wedding outside under the trees and go wild with floral decor. Pile flowers high as part of your centrepieces and attach them to chair backs. Wrap garlands around tree trunks or the supports of your tipi. Include pretty glasses, jars and bottles, suspend lanterns above your wedding table, and set flickering candles along your tables.
