Tips for an affordable, late summer wedding

The final weeks of summer are sometimes a popular time for wedding celebrations. This time of year is ideal for outdoor nuptials, because the evenings are still beautiful but the oppressive heat of summer is likely gone. Theme colors are among the most important considerations for these events. According to the news source, spicy shades can especially complement summer ceremonies and their fading daylight. Fuchsia, paprika and goldenrod are examples of rich, seasonal hues. Flowers can also add a creative flourish to any wedding. Take advantage of local gardens or bouquet shops and hang colorful blossoms on tents and tables. They can be freely scattered across surfaces or placed in jars of water. Candles can serve as soft, gentle sources of illumination, or white wire lights, strung from ceilings and railings, can prove to be effective at making a whole tent glow. Surround your wedding cake with blossoms to continue the floral theme. The news source suggests adorning a chocolate cake with candy flowers that match the theme colors of your big day. Be sure to stock up on wedding party supplies and tablecloths, as it's difficult to predict how many dishes and decorations will be needed.
