4 Summer Wedding Shower Ideas We’re Loving
- For a summer wedding shower, I love dreaming up the bride’s favorite things about summer. Does she love a good pool day? Try a glamorous summer wedding shower in a cabana at a rooftop pool with a view of the city. Add fun blow up floats and plenty of umbrella drinks to go around. Does her favorite flower bloom in the summer? Look for a local botanical garden or quirky garden brunch spot. Lots of natural textures and brightly colored bloom will set the scene. –Skylar Caitlin, Chancey Charm Houston Wedding Planner
- Incorporate a fun build your own sundae bar. Depending on the time of day, guests could go for a sweet treat and what better way than to have an ice cream bar! –Alana Futcher, Chancey Charm Washington DC Wedding Planner
LOVING THIS POST? PIN IT FOR LATER!
- There are so many great holidays and events in the summer so capitalize on those! Not only will your guests sometimes have an extra day off, it will be easier to find great decorations. If you love a fancy luncheon, organize a Kentucky Derby themed summer wedding shower with big hats and mint juleps. Head to a lake cabin for a 4th of July weekend “No More Independence” Day bash if you’re more of a laid back bride. –Liz Ise, Chancey Charm Dallas Wedding Planner
- Make the menu interesting – instead of light snacks during an afternoon summer wedding shower, utilize the warm summer nights for a delicious Shrimp Boil. Get inside and think outside of the registry. Many couples already have it all – the towels, the dishes, even the matching utensils. Instead of a typical registry, ask the ladies to join you at a DIY studio like ‘AR Workshop’ with locations all around the US. Reserve the workshop for just you and your friends and have each guest purchase a project they are comfortable with that you can later use in your home or better yet, in wedding decor! Shops like this can even customize the lettering stencil to feature your new last name and the final project looks better than something you’d find on Pinterest! –Sarah Duckworth, Chancey Charm Charlotte Wedding Planner
