When it comes to planning a wedding, one of the most difficult decisions you have to make is choosing a date and season. For many couples, summer is the most desired season due to the nice weather and ability to host ceremonies or parties outdoors. But how do you plan for one? Check out these trends and tips to help you plan the perfect summer wedding:

1. Choose Bright Colors: Bright, bold colors are always a great choice for a summer wedding. But don't go too crazy, pick only two or three hues and stick with them.

2. Florals: In addition to solid colors, floral print is great to use for your invitations or decorations. This can help give off an elegant vibe and is a great way to offset any solid patterns you have.

3. Soft Music: Keep the air light by including soft, laid back music in your reception. Especially during your cocktail hour, keep guests cool, calm and collected with soft background music created through the use of a piano or string instrument.

4. Wine Smoothies/Frozen Drinks: Since you run the risk of getting married on a hot day, make sure to incorporate some kind of frozen treat into your drink menu; giving guests something cool to sip on is sure to be a hit.

5. Outdoor Weddings: Though indoor weddings can be beautiful, outdoor weddings are a great way to celebrate summer and your wedding all at once. Dare to dip your toes in the sand with a beach wedding? Great weather provides great opportunities.
