The summer wedding season is upon us, and that adds a certain pressure as a bride. You know your guests have been to more weddings than usual these past few months and you want yours to stand out and give them something to talk about. Here are a few summer wedding trends that your guests (and you) are sure to remember.

Yard Games

It may sound silly, but between the cool nights and the long days, summer is the perfect time for a game of cornhole or a horseshoe toss at your wedding reception. Your guests have been sitting for a while, and they finally have a chance to be up and about before the bride and groom return from photos to start the meal. This is a great way to keep your guests entertained and work up some healthy competition before you come back and the party begins.

Wedding Program Fans

Depending on where you are in the world, summer means heat! Still, this shouldn’t deter you from an outdoor wedding if that’s what you have always dreamed of. One fun way to keep your guests cool and keep up with the wedding trends is turning your wedding programs into fans. With a few popsicle sticks and some strong glue wa-la, you’re the the genius who thought of everything, a fan to keep your guests cool and a program people are sure to remember!

Fruit Bar

Something about summer makes you crave fruit. It’s light, it’s chilling, it’s delicious. A great appetizer for your guests is a fruit bar. Berries, apples, guava, you name it! Even throw some dragon fruit in there for the beautiful pink color. It won’t fill your guests up before the meal but is just enough to make them hungry for whatever you’re serving next.

Cheers, to your summer wedding! Stay trendy, and you are sure to stay cool.
