Summer weddings are the epitome of romance. There’s nothing like a lovely summer day to bring the feeling of love in the air. If you’re planning the wedding of your dreams for this perfect season, we’ve got a guide with the questions you should start thinking about so you can make it happen!
What is a Refreshing Drink to Serve?
With the soaring temperatures that often accompany summer weddings, your guests will especially appreciate a chilled cocktail. Many couples opt for a signature cocktail for their big day, while others choose classic favorites.
At Distillers Hall, you can welcome your wedding party with a variety of summer-inspired cocktails–all made with famous Dripping Springs spirits. They’ll be a huge hit! A Texas Mule or Hill Country Spiked Lemonade will go a long way to take the edge off the heat and give your guests a refreshing, tasty sip.

What Kind of Food to Serve at a Summer Wedding?
When planning your wedding menu, consider going with something fresh and light. Fish can make the perfect summer dish–bass, salmon, or even sushi if you want to go a bit more trendy. Make sure to include seasonal vegetables and lots of bright colors.
If you are looking for a lighter fare, charcuterie boards are the way to go. They allow for endless customization and a perfect way to embrace the season with fresh fruits, cheeses, nuts, crackers, and more. It doesn’t hurt that charcuterie boards double as gorgeous table displays.
What Flowers Are in Season in Summer?
What’s a wedding without beautiful florals? Getting married in the summer makes choosing gorgeous seasonal flowers all that much easier. No matter the theme of your wedding, you’re bound to find the perfect summer blossoms to fill your bouquets.
Lovely options for summer bouquets include peonies for a stylish, modern spray or sunflowers for the ultimate ode to the season. Lavender is whimsical and delphinium comes in an array of stunning shades. Freesias are more wild and bohemian, while roses are timeless and romantic. Have fun searching through the abundance of options to find flowers that suit your taste and style best!
What is the Ideal Material & Style of a Dress For a Summer Wedding?
Summer weddings give you the opportunity to go in a variety of directions with your wedding dress. While fall and winter weddings require you to find ways to stay warm, summer weddings allow you to choose enchanting sleeveless, short, or strappy dresses.
Keep in mind that your special day will be much more enjoyable if you’re not excessively sweating. Stay cool and fabulous with breezy fabrics such as organza, linen, and cotton. All are excellent summer-friendly options for your gown and your bridesmaids’ dresses.
How to Find a Wedding Venue That Embraces the Summer Scene?
The location you decide on can change the entire feel of your wedding. Summer weddings allow for the extra option of an outdoor venue, if you so desire. Beaches, mountains, and forest areas all make for stunning backdrops while you exchange your vows. If you want a lovely wedding venue in Texas, check out this blog post for ideas.
