Games like bean bag toss, bocce ball, or croquet can provide a fun outlet for guests of all ages. You could even arrange for giant Jenga or Connect 4 for some fun and laughter.
Summer Wedding Attire:
The attire for a summer wedding should be comfortable, light, and elegant. For the bride, consider a flowy and airy wedding dress that will keep you cool even in hot weather. The groom and his entourage can opt for lighter fabrics like linen or seersucker suits. The bridal party can wear pastel-colored dresses that complement the summer theme.
A summer wedding is incomplete without refreshing drinks to keep the guests hydrated. You can have a welcome drink station with lemonade or tea to set the mood for the reception. A fun idea is to have a signature cocktail that represents your love story or personality. For example, if you and your partner love Margaritas, you can have a Margarita bar as one of the cocktail options. Cool off your guests with some refreshing and tasty summer cocktails. Surprise your friends and family with some cool cocktails, infused with lots of fresh fruits and berries. You can also try out some fun mocktails for those who don’t drink alcohol. With a summer cocktail bar, both you and your guests will have a blast enjoying the festivities.
Ice Cream and Popsicle Station:
Beat the heat with sweet icy treats. Setup an ice cream and popsicle station for your guests to enjoy, complete with all their favorite summer sweets including; sprinkles, chocolate chips, and whipped cream. The station can be made to look beautiful too by setting up a colorful pallet that is complementing the theme of your wedding.
Just like the ceremony, the reception can also be held outdoors with different options like tents, gazebos, or canopies. Creating a chill-out zone with lounge furniture, hammocks, and games like giant Jenga, cornhole, or Twister is a fun idea. You can have a BBQ, seafood, or taco bar, to add to the summer vibe.
A DIY favor is a unique way to thank your guests for being part of your big day. You can create DIY favors like mini lemonade or tea jars, personalized sunglasses, or flower seeds for them to plant at home. You can also have a Polaroid photo booth where the guests can take photos and stick them in your guest book with a heartfelt message.

With these creative ideas, you can make sure that your wedding is fun, elegant, and memorable for both you and your guests.
