Are you considering having your wedding in the summer? While Spring tends to be the most popular season, there are many reasons why you might consider hosting your wedding in the summer seasons instead. Each season has its own unique advantages, and summer weddings are no different. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you make your choice to hold your event in the middle of wedding season.
More Daylight: One of the biggest advantages to a summer wedding is that you have longer days to work with. What this means for you is that you have an opportunity to take many pictures with natural lighting and potentially even in multiple locations without running out of time. It may take some careful planning, but the sunlight is typically in your favor for a summer wedding.
Party Mood: Most people tend to have more free time and be more in a mood to celebrate in the summertime. Especially for those with children or who are still in school, the summer means vacation and gives more flexibility in the event that you have a lot of people coming in from opt of town. Be careful to plan around holidays or to give people ample notice so that they can make arrangements to attend your wedding.
Flower Choices: While there are of course a variety of choices for flowers in the spring, summertime flowers can hold their own. You will have plenty to choose from, and it will give you a good opportunity to speak with your florist and identify blooms that will work with both the mood of your wedding as well as the season.
Plan for the Weather: Summer is known for having a host of sunny days and nice weather in the northeast. However, bear in mind that there may be some humidity issues or really warm weather. If you’re planning an outdoor wedding, be sure that you adequately prepare for keeping your guests cool and hydrated.
