19 Fun-In-The-Sun Ideas For A Summer Wedding

Summer weddings and outdoor parties go hand-in-hand.

No matter where you choose to celebrate the big day, you want to make sure guests are happy, comfortable, well-fed having fun so they can keep the party going into the night. Below are 19 delightful ideas for a summertime soirée.

  • 1. Hold a barefoot ceremony
    No shoes, no problem. 
  • 2. Impress guests with a DIY s'mores bar 
    Ooey-gooey goodness. 
  • 3. Create a laid-back atmosphere with a gingham tablecloth 
    Add a burlap table runner and paper bag silverware holders to create backyard BBQ vibes. 
  • 4. Set up a relief station 
    Help your guests beat the heat by providing summer essentials like fans, sunscreen, aloe and bug spray.
  • 5. Provide flip flops for tired feet
    More comfortable footwear allows for better dance moves! And you don't have to worry about ladies' high heels getting stuck in the grass. 
  • 6. Host a seaside reception 
    A summer breeze, sand between yours toes and an ocean view? It doesn't get much better than this. 
  • 7. Give out popsicles 
    A sweet treat for the young at heart. 
  • 8. Incorporate shells and beach glass into your escort card display
    Perfect for a beach-themed bash. 
  • 9. Serve ice-cold drinks 
    Set up big beverage dispensers and let guests refill their glasses with ease. 
  • 10. Add some fun straws and fresh-fruit garnishes
    Elevate your drink game. 
  • 11. Serve cocktails in coconut shells
  • 12. Turn a personalized lifesaver into a guest book
    What time is it? Maritime! 
  • 13. Entertain guests with classic lawn games
    You're never too old for a bean bag toss. 
  • 14. Spread the love with homemade jam wedding favors
    It tastes like summer in a jar. 
  • 15. Top your cake with something bright and colorful
    We're partial to these lovey-dovey flamingos. 
  • 16. Or offer a fruit tart instead of a traditional cake 
    It's light and oh-so perfect on a warm night. 
  • 17. Hand out custom koozies with a fun message 
    "To have and to hold and to keep your beer cold." 
  • 18. Make corn-on-the-cob part of the wedding spread 
    It's corny -- in a good way!
  • 19. Lastly, don't forget to take some time to just be a kid
    Because that's what summer is all about.
