Summer is here! For some, the warmer months might mean it’s time to vacation with family or take a break from school. For others, it might be the ideal time for a significant event, such as exchanging “I dos.” The summer months usually book very quickly with weddings, and for good reason. See some of our favorite reasons why below.

Weather is perfect for the occasion. With shining sun and higher temperatures, you won’t have to worry about unexpected weather that will delay flights or disrupt special plans. You’ll have the ability to host your wedding indoors or outdoors – or both!

Cuisine on the Gulf Coast. Not only do the emerald green water and sugar white sand beaches make an incredible backdrop for any event, the rich, natural turquoise waters of the Gulf are filled with an abundance of delicacies treasured by more than just the locals. Chef David Pan is highly sought after for weddings across the Gulf Coast, as the area’s only graduate of Le Cordon Bleu. Boutique Catering is Orange Beach Concierge’s specialty, a passion for food with unique and delicious flavors.

Most flowers are in season. Regardless if you want roses, hydrangeas or sunflowers, almost all flowers are in season during the summer. Just a tip: Using herbs like lavender or rosemary are a natural bug repellent. Peonies our a wedding-day favorite, with pretty blooms and nuptial symbolism but are usually out of season by the end of June.

More guests are likely to attend. With school out and idea vacation times during the summer, many loved ones will be able to attend your “big day.” Summer has more built in long weekends and non family oriented holidays, a wedding trip could easily be built in to a vacation time your guest is already taking and makes a destination wedding much easier.

More options on a color scheme. In summer, pastels always look beautiful, especially for traditional weddings but so do warm accents like burgundy and navy. Color combinations are also very popular and you can have more than two that will work well together. Not only that, warm weather brings more clothing options for your guests!

At Orange Beach Concierge, we believe that no two brides are alike, so no two weddings should be either. Let us create the wedding of your dreams so you can sit back and enjoy every moment of your engagement. From choosing colors, invitations, event design, boutique catering, to coordinating your family’s places to stay. We’ll take care of all the details so you can create the memories!
