#3 – Saying “I Do” Outdoors

Outdoor wedding ceremonies are always simply stunning. No exceptions. It takes very little to play up the natural beauty that an outdoor setting has to offer. Keep your decorative additions simple but full of impact by incorporating things like unique seating and subtly beautiful aisle decor.

#4 – Weatherproof Hair

If you’re taking full advantage of the warm weather with an outdoor event, be sure to weatherproof your hair. An updo is pretty much a must. but it certainly need not be boring. Enlist the help of a professional hair stylist to give you the ultimate outdoor wedding look.

#5 – Into the Wild

OK, so maybe “wild” is a stretch when talking about doves! Point being, the classic dove release is one of those warm weather possibilities we can’t get enough of.

#6 – Keep ‘Em Comfy

As beautiful as an outdoor summer wedding can be, it also comes with unique challenges. Pesky mosquitoes, the bright sun and the sticky heat, just to name a few. Take care to ensure your guests are comfortable by supplying them with all the outdoor essentials they could possibly need, think sunscreen, bug spray and sunglasses for those who forgot a pair. Fill and creatively display personalized tote bags for a bit of decorative fun.

#7 – Seasonal Treats

There’s nothing more charming than a pint-size ode to summer. Get crafty and incorporate yours by way of a cleverly displayed guest favor.

#8 – Backup Footwear
