All Summer Bride Should Keep These Things in Mind

If you are a summer bride or groom, there are, without doubt, a thousand and one reasons that made you choose this season for the Big Day. There are, perhaps, some questions you might have as well – and that is totally normal.  

For instance, you may ask yourself how to plan your wedding day timeline – and what are the factors you should consider when it comes to this.  

We have gathered some of the most important things you should know when it comes to summer wedding timelines – so read on and find out more.  

  • The classic timeline planning starts with the end time you will be given by your wedding venue. Once you have this set, you will be able to calculate just when you must start your wedding ceremony to make sure everything fits in properly. You will want to coordinate with your venue so that you can plan out the perfect time for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing.   
  • If you are concerned about the hot weather and how it might influence your guests and yourself, do try to start the wedding a bit later in the evening (at 5 pm, for example). This will allow you to avoid the mid-day heatwave and it will also give you more time to prepare. 
  • Last, but not least, you should absolutely take advantage of the amazing “specialties” of summer – like a stunning summer sunset, for example. Watching the sun set can be an amazing experience and it can create a magical moment. For instance, you might want to have your first dance during the sunset, or you might want to have the dinner with the splendid sunset behind you. If that is the case, remember check ahead of time what time the sun is supposed to set on your wedding day so that you can plan your wedding around that.
