Inspiring Summer Wedding Bouquets

A white rose bouquet with sprigs of lavender for a summer wedding

While I love A LOT of different looks for bouquets, this is a special example I want to share with you for one big reason – you can take something really simple (a small white bouquet) and add something very small to make it even more beautiful.

The sprigs of lavender flowers and burlap wrap do just that.

Ideas for Summer Wedding Colors

When a lot of people think of summer colors, we often think brighter tones. But, the fact of the matter is that there are some really lovely subdued and subtle colors that can inspire the scheme for your big day.

This is just one example, but I just think it’s a great example of taking the colors of the season and tweaking them a bit to make it more you.

Ideas for Summer Wedding Invitations

There are easily hundreds (maybe thousands) of invitation designs for a summer wedding. There are so many amazing designs that it’s hard for me to pick a favorite.

This one however is definitely at the top of my “LOVE” list. Here’s why – it’s classy while at the same time feeling a little bit rustic.

As a person who’s uncomfortable with being overly shi-shi while at the same time not wanting to appear plain, this is a great balance.

As far as invites go however, there are no shortage of ideas.

There are many other different themes that are great any time of year. Check them out here.
