School’s Out For The Summer

Many schools and universities have summer holidays beginning in late June or early July, making it easier for any guests who may be teachers or have children to attend your wedding ceremony. With no classes or homework to worry about, guests can enjoy the celebration without any work-related stress or scheduling conflicts. However, make sure that you send out your save-the-dates well in advance to avoid clashing with vacations.

Summer Colour Palette

The summer months, especially July, offer a range of bright and bold colours, from cheerful yellows and oranges to vibrant pinks and purples, which can be used to create stunning floral arrangements, centrepieces, and wedding décor. These bright and lively colours evoke joy, happiness, and celebration, setting the tone for a festive and joyful wedding day. In addition to bright colours, summer offers a range of softer, pastel hues, such as mint greens, soft blues, and blush pinks, creating a more romantic and dreamy ambiance. With a wide variety of colour options, couples can create a personalized colour palette that reflects their unique taste and style that adds to the overall beauty and joy of their July wedding.

More Affordable Vendors

July is a wonderful time to have a wedding, but it is one of the less popular months for couples to tie the knot. This means that venues and vendors are more likely to be available and more affordable than in the peak wedding season months of June and September. Couples can take advantage of this by booking their venue and vendors early, as they will have a wider selection and may be able to negotiate better prices. Additionally, July is a less popular month for weddings, so there may be fewer scheduling conflicts and more flexibility with dates and times.
