There’s a reason we all love a good July wedding.
If you’re fantasising of a beautiful open-air wedding, summer might be ideal for you—but there’s a lot more than weather to adore about this time of year. From magnificent florals to flexibility with colours and themes, the warmer months give you all the choices you could ever want. Here’s what you need to know about having a summer function
When it comes to an outdoor or semiformal wedding, think violet, fuchsia, mango, magenta and green. Colourful food also applies to this rule. For a palette that works with almost any style—from ultra-formal to relaxed and natural—look to a combination of white and ivory with green accents.

Think about offering guests a cold drink like a fruity tea before the service starts. Showing different flavours (and colours!) of lemonade or tea in giant glass jugs, along with cut fruit for garnishes, makes for an entertaining arrangement during your cocktail hour or reception. When it comes to cocktails, think fresh.
If you love vivacious flowers, a summer wedding is for you. Year-round blooms include wedding favourites like roses, tulips, dahlias, anemones, gardenias, lilies, hydrangeas, asters, Gerber daisies, alstroemeria, baby’s breath, orchids, chrysanthemums and tuberose. Choose flowers that will stay fresh throughout the whole day, particularly if you’re planning to take photos or exchange vows in the sun. Look for ones with a waxy texture to guarantee staying power, or keep a vase of cool water close.
Cool Your Guests Down
Serve cake à la mode to keep guests cool—think about fresh flavors like strawberry or lavender-infused ice cream. Or offer a fruit-flavored gelato.
To cool off dancing guests, if it fits with your style, you can serve small milk shakes with fun old-fashioned straws or even fresh-fruit ice pops.
Use Your Colour Scheme Wisely
Serve a mini-scoop trio of sorbet that imitates your wedding colours. With so many types to choose from, you’re sure to find a delicious flavour that reflects your style.
