Late Summer Wedding Ideas

< All Blogs

Summer might be winding down, but wedding season isn’t! The end-of-summer transition into fall is a beautiful time of year for weddings, picking up on the perfect California weather and seasonal details, from blooms to cuisine. Soak up the last moments of summer and curate the most stunning wedding of the season!

Flexible Color Palette

Consider a wedding color palette that combines the brightness of summer and striking elements of fall. Color combinations we love: emerald, navy and gold, lilac, sage and white, blue, cream and mustard and peach, pink and green.

Take Advantage of the Outdoors

Leverage the warm weather and cool ocean breeze by hosting all of your wedding festivities outdoors. Wayfarers Chapel is the perfect venue to feel as if you’re both indoors and outdoors, with the glass chapel walls and open-air landscape. An ocean view and fresh greenery complete the setting for your end-of-summer wedding affair.

Midi Bridesmaid Dresses

Not a floor-length gown or cocktail dress, midi dresses are somewhat in between, past the knee and just above the ankle. Midi dresses are a flattering cut on all shapes, sizes and heights, and are perfect for weddings transitioning from season to season. A bonus: they’re easy to dance in!

Airy Elements

Use acrylic to create light, airy and modern decor details. See-through seating charts or crystal-clear menus showcasing in-season blooms are ways to make this trend stand out.

Floral Chandeliers

Create a fresh and beautiful space by displaying flowers anywhere you can. We love the idea of using floral chandeliers to fill the venue with color and texture. Incorporate lighting to transform the space into an intimate oasis.
