The warm season is here and it brings so many amazing summer wedding venue decor opportunities. Wedding venues are the homes we give our weddings. Most wedding venues are beautiful, but some wedding venues are amazing. There is something magical about a summer wedding venue that allows you to have the ceremony outside in nature.

There is something Shakespearean about being at an event surrounded by nature. Maybe it resonates to a time when we are taken back to the freedom that came with school being out, that clearly announced the warm season to come. Summer is also the time that most people take their vacations or just relax a little more than usual. When it comes to summer weddings there seems to always be a little extra cheer that comes with the joyous occasion. One of the most beneficial aspects about having a summer wedding is the decor options for the venue.

If you are planning on having a summer wedding and have gone venue scouting than you most definitely have seen the amazing possibilities and the difference that comes with the warm season. There is a reason we all love the summer and that is because it brings warm weather and the sun. When searching for your wedding venue, having more options is a big plus. Here are some amazing ideas that will help you bring a little bit of the latest trends to your summer outdoor wedding venue.

There is nothing better than sitting outside while the sun is almost set and the cool wind comes to life making the air more than bearable. It’s like a small gift that reaches it’s peak every now and then when the wind offers us a little ray of fresh air. Now if we add all these up with beautiful floral arrangements on the tables and delicious food while listening to great music it could make up one the greatest nights of your life. Having an outdoor wedding means the venue has a space that is perfect and can host your summer outdoor wedding needs.

Wedding Tent at the Venue

If you are a little worried about the weather and some summer rain showers then you can ask the venue if they have a tent they use for outdoor weddings or if you can rent one and have it installed on the property. The truth is that in case of bad weather it will be very difficult to move the whole party indoors. If you have a tent there are many decoration options to make it as beautiful as you wish your summer wedding venue to be. You can add many décor pieces to the wedding tent. We are here to offer you many fresh and trendy ideas.

Flowers Flowers Flowers

When we think of summer the first things that come to mind would be the sun, sand, and flowers. There is something magical about the summer floral season. There is a pallet of color that surrounds us all during the summer season that is simply beautiful. Having your wedding during the summer leaves you with so many options to decorate your wedding venue. From fresh flowers for table décor to decorating your wedding tent, the choices are beautiful and endless. You can have a floral wall set up behind the bride and groom table. You can even fill up an empty space with a floral wall so that everyone can take photos with the statement piece or art. From different flowers to different colors nothing can compare to the beauty of any floral arrangement you might choose. Summer flowers tend to be less costly as well.

Feathered Seating Chart

An amazing idea that you can implement at your summer wedding that is a marvelous trend to have at all venues is the feathered seating chart. It is an original idea and your guests will love finding their name and table on the chart. Imagine walking into the wedding venue and the first thing you and your guests see is this beautiful peacock like arrangement that takes your breath away. You can have the feathers in different colors or follow your own themed color scheme. This is a modern twist to the regular table seating chart that we have all grown accustomed to but it offers a little bit of zest making it becomes a décor key piece at your summer wedding venue.

Everything in One Place

When it comes to weddings, there is some running around that is required. From city hall to the church and to the venue it will leave you all with a lot of lost time. Most wedding guests do not attend the church ceremony part and come straight to the venue. Well, there is a great part to having an outdoor wedding with plenty of room to spare. With an outdoor wedding venue, you can have the full ceremony at the venue with the priest and the city hall officiant in one spot. You won’t have to move around and this way everyone can attend and enjoy everything that you have prepared for your wedding day. A bonus would be that between each event you could slip away and have a small photoshoot.

Wedding Doves

If you plan on having a summer wedding at an outdoor venue then it will make releasing doves even more magical and everyone will get to enjoy the feathery show. If you have the whole celebration in one place then there will be more guests when you will release the doves and they will all get to enjoy the release to the sky. It will make for some amazing photos and it will not be as rushed as it would have been if you were all in a hurry to get to the venue. And your younger guests will simply love the idea.

Balloons and Balloon Arch

Imagine having a grand and beautiful arch that is made out of beautiful balloons that decorate your summer wedding venue to perfection. Offering the outdoor space a feel of childhood joy and cheer.

Balloons have always seemed to be one of those décor pieces that are hard to place correctly at any event. Leaving them to float around is very old school and balloon have come a long way. Balloons have been around for ages and will always be around at most wedding venues. There are so many trends that have come and gone yet balloons have always come out winners, floating to the top like champions. Having an outside section to your summer wedding venue is what balloon wish for in secret. There is something special about having an arch made out of balloons that have been sprayed with a metallic color to give them an extra chic flow. Balloons aren’t just for kids anymore!

Summer Wedding Venue Lighting

There is something special about lighting. It has the power to change any ambiance into a warm or cold one with the light that it emanates and all of this depends on the venue. If you were having your wedding indoors than you would not have much of a choice except what the venue has to offer. But since you are having an outdoor wedding then you can work with warm or cold light and have the venue come to life as you wish it. Twinkle lights have always had their charm. The most renowned restaurants in the world have twinkle lights in front of their entrances. They create a scene that is simply divine and they seem to take us to a place that represents that of a fairy tale, which brings us to our next summer wedding venue trends.

Fairy Tale Wedding

There is nothing like a fairy tale wedding that has all the details of a perfect love story shown all around the wedding venue. Most importantly there is a beautiful bride and a handsome groom, to begin with. You can go all Disney with your wedding and have a Cinderella-like carriage in front of the venue for all to enjoy, especially the young at heart. The fairytale wedding décor of the venue is a trend that has come back and it’s not just for the little ones. Weddings are meant to represent dreams coming true and that is what the fairy tale wedding theme is meant to do. You can even dress up your bridesmaids in princess-like gowns to give it an extra fairytale vibe.

Entertainment for Kids

One of the biggest benefits of having a summer outdoor wedding is the fact that you can have entertainment for all the little guests that you will have. Keeping them entertained is very important. We all know that children have a very short attention span and tend to wander off and do mischievous things. Maybe children aren’t your biggest priority, however, their parents might just be. Keeping the little ones entertained means that their parents can have all the fun you wish them to have. A great idea that is trending and that goes well with summer outdoor weddings venue would be a petting zoo. All children love animals. We already have the balloon set up and we assure you that kids will grab a few to play with. Magic shows will guarantee the full attention of the little ones. Facial paintings should be left for birthdays and not weddings, after all, you are wearing white!

Having a unique summer outdoor wedding at the perfect venue is not as hard as you might have thought. Outdoor events have the tenancy of bringing us all closer to nature and this is why we all simply adore these types of gatherings. Make sure to come with an open mind when searching for an outdoor venue and imagine it in the right lighting and with the decorations you wish for. It might take some magic, but then again Cinderella couldn’t have done anything without the help of her fairy godmother and her little minions. Grab your helping crew and start planning the perfect outdoor wedding at the most perfect venue that you can find. Your forever begins today. Happy planning future newlyweds.
