It’s almost summertime – and that means that not only will it be hot, it’s also sticky, muggy and it’s hard to do anything except lay on the beach or by the pool. However, if you are planning a wedding, it is important that you kick yourself into action, because there is a lot to organize and plan. If you are planning a summer wedding, there are a few things you want to keep in mind, because there is a good chance that you’ve heard some misleading information about summer weddings. Here are a few common summer wedding myths debunked.
It’s Important To Have A Big Bright Colorful Theme
One of the biggest myths is that you need to have a really colorful wedding. People will tell you that summer calls for brightly colored table settings and accessories. However, you don’t necessarily need to go this route, especially if its not very you. You can go for a dark color scheme, or any color scheme for that matter – just because its summertime, it doesn’t mean your wedding must have a summer theme.
You Need To Do The Wedding Outdoors
People will also tell you to do your summer wedding outdoors – that it’s a shame if you keep the whole thing indoors. However, if it is particularly hot outside, with lots of bugs and the sun beating down, it may be more trouble than its worth to the wedding outdoors. In fact, you may want to do the wedding in an old bard with access to the outdoors if people decide to congregate outside. In some areas, you want to give this option – unless of course you have a wedding outdoors on a warm summer night.
You Should Not Do The Wedding In A Big Metropolitan Area
This myth makes a little bit of sense, because big metropolitan areas can be a mess in the summertime. Plus, all that heat can bring up some strange, foul odors that can put a damper on your wedding. Also, you have to worry about mucking up the wedding dress. However, big cities can actually be a great place for a summer wedding – it all depends on where you do it. A big park is a great place for an urban wedding – so is a banquet hall.
The Heat Will Ruin Your Wedding
The heat will definitely be a factor when it comes to planning your wedding, but heat is not necessarily the enemy. Of course, you don’t want to leave the cake sitting out in the sun, but that’s about it. You can also place umbrellas around your ceremony so people can stay in the shade when they are feeling the brunt of the summer sun.
The Heat Will Force You Out Of Formal Wedding Attire
On top of everything, there is a myth about summer weddings that says you can’t wear formal wedding attire. This means that you have to wear something akin to a white summer dress if you want to stay cool and comfortable during your wedding. However, you don’t need to let the heat get in the way of your wedding dreams. There is always air conditioning and you can custom make a dress that breathes a little better. In the end, there are also bridesmaids that will help cool you down when you get to hot – that’s what they are there for, right?
