Summer Beach Wedding Ideas

Summer is just around the corner and there’s no surprise that it’s a popular season for couples to walk down the aisle and celebrate their love. It’s also a time when most people are able to take some much needed time off and are free to travel. So how do you plan for a summer wedding? In this month’s blog, we’ll talk about fantastic summer beach wedding ideas that is sure to leave your guests impressed!

That Perfect Shore-Side Venue

Outdoor venues are extremely popular, especially having a shore-side wedding. Hosting an event at the beach can be romantic and beautiful. However, it’s important to keep your guests in mind because you’re going to be dealing with high temperatures and a strong sun. We recommend having tented seating areas or large umbrellas for your guests to take shelter in. Another way to escape the heat is to align your main event towards the evening, when temperatures are cooler.

If you’re sticking with a beach-side wedding, having a casual pre-party before the main event is sure to entice guests! Being able to dress down and just relax in the sand or at a beach bar is a great way to appreciate the summer vibe. Providing tasty, cooling treats is also an absolute must, such as drinks and dessert stations.  

Beach Themed Stationery

Match your beach-side venue with beautiful and creative stationery! Invite your guests with gorgeous wedding invitations featuring the beautiful deep blue meeting the shore, or perhaps cards featuring the ocean life. These images are sure to evoke a calming and pleasing aesthetic in your guest’s mind before the event, conjuring a sense of excitement for that ocean breeze. You can also welcome your guests at the venue with matching beach themed seating placement cards, including a guest book that they can sign. Remember that keeping a consistent aesthetic is sure to wow your guests and overall enhance your special day!

Beachy Party Favors

People love trinkets and merchandise that would serve as a memento of the wedding event. Here are some ideas to keep your guests comfortable while doubling as a party favor:

  • Personalized fans to combat that summer heat
  • Themed sunglasses
  • Reusable water bottles
  • Beach tote bags

Once you establish your guest list, you will want to consider the types of party favors you want to gift them to show your appreciation.

Desserts

The sky is the limit with sweet favors, so don’t be afraid to express your creativity with your choices.

Party guests will be happy to head home with something sweet to enjoy on their way. Whether you order desserts from your favorite bakery or prepare them in your home, party guests will appreciate the gesture of an edible party favor.

Customized Merchandise

Another great way to thank party guests for celebrating with you is by giving them personalized gifts. From custom blankets with the guests’ names on them to hats embroidered with the wedding date, there are many ways to give your guests a unique novelty item. Those who have hired a DJ and a dancefloor should consider gifting dancing guests a pair of sandals that are decorated using your event’s theme colors. People will be more than happy to kick off their high heels in exchange for the adorned flats.

Bubbly Favors

You can keep the party going past the end of your wedding celebration with a unique alcoholic drink. Great party favor drinks include mini champagne bottles and mini cocktail kits. Your guests will be delighted to take home a great beverage that will remind them of the occasion. You can even add custom name labels and décor to the bottles to give them a personalized flair. Champagne, wine, and beer are all great wedding favors that everyone will love.

Flower Power

Mingle and Chat

One little way of saying thanks to your guests that also plays into proper wedding etiquette, is making sure to chat and mingle with them.

So, not only will you be able to share in the contagious joy of the day, but your guests will feel appreciated and cared for.

These can include anything from candies, homemade preserves, and even liquor. Whatever you choose, your guests are sure to leave feeling glad to have been there with you.
