From the venue to the flowers to the entertainment, there are a lot of details to choose when planning your summer wedding. That’s a lot of opportunities to make a day that’s entirely you—and a lot of chances to create an uncoordinated wedding that leaves your guests underwhelmed. One of our top tips for overwhelmed brides is to turn to the experts to bring your vision together—if you know what that vision is. We’ve compiled a list of wedding theme ideas that take advantage of the (hopefully) beautiful summer weather, and can get you started turning that vision into reality.
Beach Wedding Theme
If you want to make your guests feel like they’re at a destination wedding, embrace the details: island drinks, beach-themed favors, fun entertainment. Choose a venue on the water or that has a beach feel to set the theme. To really make your wedding feel like a day on the islands, talk to your entertainment agent about steel drum or reggae bands. If those ideas are too much for you, ask your agent about more low-key acts that enhance your beach wedding theme.
Whether you’re holding your rustic wedding in a barn or an open space, feel free to bring in country chic and elegant décor accents. Think rustic furniture, string lights, burlap, wagon wheels; bring it all together to make a beautiful rustic evening. For entertainment, contact an entertainment agent for ideas such as a country band or, if you’re not a country music fan, a band that can do almost any song you’d request.
A summer picnic wedding can take place at a park, a backyard—really at any open space. Complete the wedding picnic theme with lemonade stands, berries, jelly jar favors, and lots of fun entertainment. If you’re inviting adults and kids to your summer picnic wedding, don’t forget to hire entertainment for the little ones such as a face painters and musicians. For the adults, lay out fun yard games and hire a fun band to keep them moving.
If a classic style is near and dear to your heart, use that affection to create a retro wedding from that era. Choose décor from your desired time period. Hire a band that can play songs from that era to complete the style, and outfit your wedding party in period appropriate attire.
If you don’t know where to start finding and hiring entertainers that can take your summer wedding theme to the next level, contact an experienced entertainment agent for recommendations, to set an entertainment schedule for your wedding day and to finalize all the details of your wedding entertainment. Your entertainment agent can tie all the details of your summer wedding theme together—and make a day that you’ll never forget.
