Year of Weddings: June Weddings

June Weddings

By the time June rolls around, everyone is starting to get into the summer spirit.

Advantages

  • Sunny weather is perfect for photos and outdoor weddings.
  • It’s warm, but not too hot, and the chance of rain is lower.
  • Fewer competing holidays to contend with.

Disadvantages

  • Venues and vendors are more expensive during wedding season.
  • June dates are in high demand. Venues may be hard to book, and you may be competing with other brides.
  • Summer weddings often require a longer engagement while you wait for venues.

Decor

Take advantage of the sunny weather by incorporating summer motifs into your event decor- tropical motifs like and other citrus-inspired colors and graphics scream summer. Serve pitchers of bright fruit-infused water, decorate your tables with bright floral tablerunners, and create centerpieces using bowls or baskets of oranges, limes, and lemons . Warmer temperatures also call for cookout-style food like sliders and other crowd-pleasing BBQ classics, and of course, celebrating under the stars at a day-to-night outdoor event.

Lanterns make a lovely decoration for an indoor or outdoor June wedding. For an unconventional twist, fill them till they’re overflowing with draping colorful, local wildflowers or other seasonal blooms, such as:

  • Dahlias
  • Daisies
  • Delphinium
  • Sweet Pea

Colors

If you’re planning a June wedding, try incorporating at least one bright, bold color into your palette:

  • Hot Pink: This bright, feminine shade pairs well with darker hues as well as understated neutrals, and even other bright colors like orange or yellow.
  • Orange: For a more understated look, opt for a pastel peach.
  • Bright Gold: Think sunshine and sunflowers!
  • Teal: Beach season is upon us—get into the spirit with a radiant teal.
  • Dusty Blue: If bright colors don’t appeal to you, a monochrome palette featuring a dusty blue or pastel pink is perfect for the season without being overly in-your-face. It also looks lovely with gold and teal.

Paper and Stationery

Spring/summer (dare I say “sprummer”?) calls for light, lovely invitations:

Translucent Vellum: Add dimension to your stationery suite by using layers of translucent vellum paper. Add a subtle mat, or print directly onto translucent sheets for an affordable but luxurious look and feel.

Bright Envelopes: Send your invites in a brightly colored envelope to set the scene for a vibrant and (hopefully) sunny event.

Summer Motifs: Play on the themes and flavors of summer by incorporating a citrus or tropical motif . Pineapples are especially popular at the moment!

Ombre: For a subtler look, choose one bright summer hue as the base for an ombre design.
