Month of August
When you think of August, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Is it the sound of AC units kicking into overdrive, or your skin sticking to your car’s leather seats? Once you look past the long hot days of August, you can sense the romance in the air. How about strolls in the park hand-in-hand with your future spouse or romantic candlelight dinners on your back patio?
With summer vacations being one of the most romantic getaways, the month of August beats February’s Valentines Day making August national romance awareness month. This gives you the perfect opportunity to host a flawless romantic summer wedding to be remembered for years to come.
Romantic Summer Wedding
When incorporating more than one theme to your wedding, make sure you keep both romance and summer in mind avoiding one being highlighted more than the other. Roses, candles, and love are all essence of romance and can be used in addition to creating your own summer twist.
When using roses in your flower arrangements be sure to use a variety of colors adding that pop of summer feeling . Consider local St. George florists such as Bloomers and The Flower Market to help take care of your arrangement needs. Hold your reception in the evening so you can incorporate that candlelight throughout the night with candles placed in fun summer bird cages and floating glass globes around the area. These can be found locally at Michael’s, Pier 1, or any home decor or craft store. Find an outside venue such as Entrata, the Ledges, and Lichfield Ponds with lots of green and natural elements to surround your guests.
