Inspiration for your Summer Wedding
Summer is the most popular time of the year to get married, and with longer days, warmer weather, a wider selection of flowers and better photo opportunities, it’s really not surprising.
Over the years we have hosted a variety of beautiful weddings at our exclusive wedding venue in Brecon and we understand that finding original ideas for your wedding can be hard. With this in mind, we have pulled together our favourite summer wedding tips…
With a huge variety of flowers available in summer such as peonies, lavender, daisies, dahlias and roses, it’s the perfect opportunity to introduce more colour and variety to your bouquet and flower arrangements. For a personalised touch, why not introduce wildflowers, herbs and natural greenery?
Cocktail Drinks Reception
Greeting your guests with refreshing cocktails is bound to be an instant hit. Why not create your own signature cocktail to add a splash of personality? Our summer favourites? Jugs of fruit filled Pimms and Prosecco with a splash of elderflower cordial.
Fun and Games
Not only are outdoor games a great ice breaker for friends and family meeting for the first time, they are the perfect way to get everyone involved and having fun. Our favourites are lawn croquet, giant jenga and horse shoes. The stunning lawn at our luxury hotel in Wales is the perfect spot for some friendly outdoor competition.
Soak up the sun and enjoy the longer days of summer with an outdoor dance floor and maybe even host a live band. This is a great accompaniment to outdoor games and an outdoor drinks reception and is guaranteed to get everyone dancing and making the most of the beautiful outdoors. Our lovely outside terrace would be fantastic for a band at an exclusive use wedding.
Summer is the perfect time to add a splash of colour to your day. This may come in the form of elaborate flower arrangements, reception tables, props and lighting patterns. Think bright hues and fun fabrics.
We hope our summertide wedding tips help inspire you to work towards the summer wedding you’ve always dreamed of.
