2023 Australian Summer Wedding Theme Ideas20 January 2023
It’s no wonder summer is a popular season for weddings, with its beautiful weather and enthusiastic atmosphere. The enjoyable motif you choose for your summer wedding should reflect these good feelings. You’ve found the ideal place if you’re looking for the top summer wedding themes. To assist you in achieving the aesthetic, I’ve compiled some of my favourites as a Melbourne marriage celebrant, along with decorating and styling advice. Let’s get started!
A beach wedding typically comes to mind when considering summer wedding themes. An outdoor ceremony on the sand can be perfect for you and your fiancé if you both adore the water and want to say your “I do’s” there. You should use flowers to decorate the sandy aisle, which leads to a driftwood arch at the end. Prepare little fans, and parasols guests can take home as wedding favours before you welcome them. Celebrate on the beach with special cocktails following the wedding or go to a nearby venue for dinner and dancing.
The homey, earthy bohemian vibe never goes out of style because of its DIY appeal. Any wedding location can accommodate a rustic theme, making it the ideal summertime option for a barn or outdoor ceremony. Look for organic materials to incorporate into your decors, such as rope, twine, dried flowers, and warm-toned timbers. You can add fresh plants and wildflowers to the area to provide colour. Set up a rustic pallet wall as a backdrop for a DIY photo booth area and create your chalkboard wedding signs.
If the beautiful flowers in your wedding bouquet aren’t enough, consider having a garden wedding and reception where the flowers will be the focus of the entire event. Instead of wearing a white bridal gown or a black-tie suit, opt for a floral-patterned or pastel-coloured outfit. Take out the vintage China, napkins, and tableware and throw a grown-up tea party on the grass. Fresh peonies, summer wedding flowers, colourful vases, and bunting all around the table will brighten it. Serve a variety of small pastries and snacks along with lots of fruit tea and cocktails with floral themes.
An island-themed wedding reception will transport your visitors to a tropical paradise. This theme is ideal for a destination wedding and a great way to showcase summer weddings’ vibrant, daring colours. Use potted palm trees and garlands of tropical flowers as decors and fresh fruits as centrepieces. Dress your bridesmaids or wedding party in vibrant hues or island prints, accessorise with tropical flowers or scatter tropical flower petals on the floor. Make a menu with Caribbean BBQ and tiki cocktails to complete the experience.
One of the most fun aspects of wedding preparation is choosing your theme. The rest of your choices become clearer, as a result, allowing you to focus your wedding planning and design the wedding of your dreams. And if you’re organising a summer wedding, take inspiration from one of my suggestions above.
