There’s nothing more romantic than a summer wedding. The birds are singing and the sun is shining and everyone is in an effortless, festive mood. Elaborate floral decorations and colorful dresses are as integral to a summer wedding as delicious summery food.


There are plenty of ways to help your guests beat the heat and ensure that almost everything goes right. Here are some ideas to help your guests enjoy a gorgeous summery way without getting too hot under the collar:

1. If you’re planning an outdoor wedding, make sure you have plenty of shaded areas at your venue.

2. Have servers hand out cool drinks before the ceremony and arrange drink stations at convenient spots.

3. Paper fans can help keep your guests cool and make great wedding favors as well.

4. Make sure there’s plenty of bug spray handy at your outdoor banquet.

5. Serve light and refreshing food. Think cold appetizers.

Have fun picking a theme for your food. Opt for refreshing food themes – a seafood theme works well if you have a beach wedding or a Mediterranean one works well in a garden. It’ll give you an excuse to serve up all your favorite salads with lashings of olive oil as well. We’ve picked out some our best summer wedding appetizers to help you get started with planning your all-important menu.

1. Andouille Sausage & Shrimp Kabob

These delicious kebobs are served on knotted skewers which make them the perfect finger food as your guests won’t have to juggle their drinks, plates and food all at the same time. The spicy sausage and plump shrimp make a lovely contrast to the crisp peppers. Delicious!
