5 Creative Themes for a Memorable Summer Wedding

 Summer is quite possibly one of the best times for a wedding. You can expect good weather, make the most of the outside space and get really creative when it comes to your wedding theme.

You want your wedding to be the kind that makes everyone go “wow!” and keeps them talking for weeks afterwards. Therefore, choosing the perfect theme is essential and no efforts should be spared when it comes to styling your wedding, after all, it’s meant to be the best day of your life.

If you need some inspiration here’s four of our favourite summertime wedding themes:


Festival theme

Festivals are what summer is all about and if you’re a regular Glastonbury goer or a general music lover then this could be the theme for you.

You’ll have guests queuing at the door and begging for VIP tickets if you create your own ‘WedFest’. Think floral crowns, tents or tepees, street food stalls, authentic festival signs, ticket style invitations and of course great music.

You can keep it classy with Coachella styled chill out areas or go full-on festival with wellies and personalised wristbands. Whatever tone you go with, festival style nuptials are a great way to express your personality and give your guests a great time.


Vintage travel

This romantic wedding motif is excellent if you have a passion for travel but also want to incorporate a bit of vintage. Celebrate your love story in a truly unique and special way by inviting your friends and family to the ultimate outdoor wedding combining warm sunlight and some beautiful travel-inspired décor.

We’re talking vintage suitcases, rustic globes, old-style bicycles and postcard messages. If you really want to reflect your lives together base your travel theme on a previous trip you’ve taken together or a specific destination you loved, and the ideas will come flooding in.


Alice in Wonderland

If you want to go a little bit crazy you could focus your theme on the whimsical Alice in Wonderland. A stunning garden would be the perfect location for this wedding and decorations such as pocket watches, teacups, hats, keys hanging from the trees and bottles of ‘Drink me’ potions will complete the design.

Encourage your guests to completely immerse themselves in the concept by setting an Alice themed dress code or even throw an extravagant afternoon tea party. There are lots of peculiar touches you could add to create this one of a kind wedding.


Carnival theme

There’s no better theme for a fun and funky wedding than a Carnival. Make bright colours and fresh patterns the feature, bunting, fairy lights and lots of garden games would all bring the theme to life. Make sure your guests don’t go hungry with small bags of popcorn for them to snack on, a candy floss stand, doughnuts and other carnival-like food.

This theme gives you the freedom to be inventive and let your mind run wild, the outcome, a truly epic wedding for sure.
