Summer brings heat, fireflies, and romance, as Ben Williams famously said, “If a June night could talk, it would probably boast it invented romance.” There is no question about it; summer is magical. Full of vacations and bathing suits, flip flops and short shorts. In Orlando, though, the entire year is full of heat, and sometimes the summer is unimaginably hot.

If you are planning a summer wedding, incorporate the heat of the weather into your ballroom decoration ideas.

Incorporate bright color tones, and flowers like peonies, dahlias, poppies. Don’t be afraid of orange, aqua, hot pink, and yellow. These colors look beautiful under the summer sunshine.

Provide large jugs of refreshing beverages such as strawberry-mint infused water, lemonade with fresh lemon slices floating around, margaritas served with watermelon perched on the glass.

Make your wedding program into a fan so that your guests can keep themselves cool.

Hang flowers, white lights, make it mystical, warm, inviting.

Hand out sunglasses, place orange slices inside vases in the center of the tables.

Have an ice cream sundae bar instead of cake. Provide hot fudge, caramel, whipped cream, sprinkles, strawberries, bananas, pecans, walnuts, sour gummy worms, crushed up Oreos and graham crackers, york peppermint patties, maraschino cherries. Serve the sundaes in cocktail glasses etched with the wedding date, for guests to take home.
