How To Plan The Perfect Summer Wedding

How To Plan The Perfect Summer Wedding

3 May, 2013 - 4:09 pm

When planning a summer wedding it can seem like the most romantic thing in the world – sipping champagne against the backdrop of rolling Essex hills – but make sure you keep your head out of the clouds to avoid surprises on your big day. Obviously you want to take advantage of the few sunny months Britain has to offer but, unless you have a crystal ball, when booking a wedding in advance you have no guarantee what the weather will be like on your big day. With a bit of forward planning, you can prevent the happiest day of your life dissolving into a nightmare.

 Venue

  • Public Holidays – When choosing a date, you’re best off avoiding bank holidays such as the August bank holiday as they’re likely to be extremely busy or overbooked.
  • Comfort – With outdoor venues you should ensure your guests will be able to sit comfortably and hear your vows. Avoid loud, busy locations and ensure there is adequate seating.
  • Contingency plan – We hope that your summer wedding will be the radiant day you dream of, but it’s always best to have a backup plan. The last thing a bride wants on her big day is to wind up looking like a drowned rat. If you hire a marquee from Cater Hire Ipswich, we can also provide lighting, toilets and furniture to complement it.

 

Timing

  • Public Holidays – When choosing a date, you’re best off avoiding bank holidays such as the August bank holiday as they’re likely to be extremely busy or overbooked.
  • Photography At Noon – Avoid taking your wedding pictures outside when the sun is directly overhead. It is unflattering and could potential ruin the photos of your special day.
  • Alcohol – Booze and heat can be a risky combination, so try to hold back on serving alcohol at least until after the ceremony. If you’re not careful, your guests could be passed out before the first dance!
