Summer weddings have been popular for many years. Despite the heat and potential for sun poisoning, many couples choose summer weddings so they can have an outdoor event with a beautiful backdrop. If you’re planning a summer wedding, here are some of the best wedding favors to give out at your event!
Something to drink from:
Your guests will be thirsty during your outdoor summer wedding. And, even if your wedding is indoors, your guests will need to ensure they stay hydrated throughout the event! Consider using personalized wine glasses at your wedding. Your guests will have a reusable cup for the event, plus they’ll have something to take with them after it’s over! You can engrave the glass with your names, wedding date or even your venue.
Something to wear:
Get creative with your wedding favors! A simple rain poncho in one of your event colors with your wedding date on the front or back is a cute wedding favor idea. Since many rain ponchos are made of a thin, water-repellent material, they fold up and are pretty compact. They’re perfect for placing in a metal tub or a large bowl on your guestbook table! Guests can grab one as they head out for your send-off. This is especially if your event is somewhere that’s known for having a downpour or two during any point of the day. Just imagine the fun send-off photos with everyone wearing their matching rain ponchos! Other fun ideas include sunglasses and smartwatch bands.
So the fallout from 2020’s pandemic scare has changed the economy of 2021, and the intrigues of 2021 are definitely going to reverberate throughout 2022. How you travel, where you spend your honeymoon, what venues will allow what sort of wedding parties, which provinces and countries are more or less free—all these things are going to carry over into 2022.
Marriage is pretty important, and it’s kind of a backbone for society. There’s an argument to be made that marriage actually outranks political issues. Without the nuclear family, it’s pretty hard for a society to develop in a way which is ultimately productive.
Marriage is the core nexus point of that reality. All that to say this: your weddingis more important than many realize. Don’t stress it too much, but don’t be intimidated into having some cloistered back-room affair—unless, of course, that’s what you were going for. Then, by all means, have it in the basement.
Being a student can be challenging – there are so many exams to prepare for and so little time on your hands. Adding wedding planning to your list of attributes can be an overwhelming experience. But hey! If the time has come, you cannot forget about it and postpone it until you graduate. You’ve got to get married while in college! This is extremely exciting and an important part of your life.
To do that, however, you must be organized and efficient. If you’re not both of these things, you might end up disappointed either with your wedding or your grades. Learning how to organize a wedding while in college can be tricky, but it’s definitely not impossible – and you’re most definitely on the right track.
Stick to the schedule no matter what
Since your responsibilities will multiply during this time of year, structure is essential. You must stay on top of your assignments and prepare the wedding at the same time, so developing efficient organization skills is crucial.
So you’ve found your venue, decided on catering, invited the people with whom you want to share your big day, made reservations for the most romantic honeymoon, and picked out your dream gown at Best for Bride. That was a lot, and we know wedding planning isn’t always effortless. And as if that wasn’t enough, there is still more to be done. As you approach the date to say “I do,” you’ll also want to focus on making a beauty regimen.
Feeling good—inside and out—is not only for the photos, your family and friends, or even your new spouse, but rather, for yourself. You will always remember this day, hopefully in the best light. Confidence about your appearance shines from within, no matter how much highlighter you apply. Keeping a beauty checklist can give you time and offer a guideline so you have one less thing to worry about.
Depending on how far away your wedding date is, you could have more time for all of these preparations. Haircuts, dermatologist appointments, manicures, and spray tans are often required a week or month before the big day. Fitting all of that into your lengthy list of responsibilities can be somewhat overwhelming. However, we’re here to give peace to your anxieties.
