Make summer more wonderful as you venture into your life’s new beginning this season. For a better experience for not only you but also for your guests, follow the tips below:

Save that date

“We find that during the summer months, vacations are booking so far out that we encourage our couples to mark their big day and send their save the dates closer to 8-12 months out. Additionally, we have been recommending that invitations go out closer to 8-10 weeks in advance when planning anytime during the summer – but especially around the holidays in July and August.” – Alexandra Rembac, Sterling Engagements Source: InsideWeddings

Décor ideas

Bring the outside indoors! Why not create a whimsical garden-like feel inside your venue? Choose an abundance of flowers and greenery or anything that sparks your definition of the outdoors during the summer season. Ask your florist for their summer flower picks of the season to be used in your centerpiece arrangements. Choose summer-inspired colors to keep things fresh and light. Light pinks, pastels and pops of yellows are always an elegant summer option. Source: AllSeated

Marquee-style signs

Wanna see your names in lights? Follow our off-Broadway suggestion: Fashion inexpensive marquee-style signs by filling these super-affordable cardboard letters with strings of bulbs, hiding the cords on the other side of each figure. We love the way they jazz up a dessert table, bar, or, for kick-step-turn types, a DJ booth. Source: MarthaStewartWeddings
