Summer Sunshine Wedding Theme
The summer sunshine wedding theme incorporates all the best things about summer - the long lazy days of sunshine, bright colours, sea breezes, sunflowers, steel drums and warm summer evenings spent with friends and family. This is a semi formal take on a beach wedding theme. Here is how to put it together:
This wedding theme calls for an informal but sexy gown. Something that shows off a little skin and your incredible tan! Look for an off shoulder beach wedding dress or a dress with a low cut back.
For the men how about a pair of camel coloured long or three quarter pants and a crisp white shirt.

Reception Décor Ideas:
The summer sunshine wedding theme incorporates bright sunset colours like yellow, red, pink and orange.
Ideally your reception should be on the actual beach or somewhere outdoors to lend the feeling of a summer dinner under the stars. Cover long tables with a canvas material that will withstand some breezes, and will add a casual feel. If you are not using a tent of some sorts then provide the necessary shade with some cream canvas umbrellas palm leaf umbrellas. Use informal seating such as cane stools, benches or hay bales.
Use striking summer colours in your flowers. Team miniature sunflowers with red and yellow gerberas in an informal posy. Decorate with some raffia.
For a truly summer feel hire a steel drum band if you can. They can play during the ceremony and to entertain your guests during the cocktail hour. A few reggae songs will also fit very well.
For your summer sunshine wedding theme menu try Mediterranean platters filled with roasted vegetables, cold meats and fresh Italian breads. This should be easy to cater for since nothing is really served warm, and the platters make for a very social meal. Just make sure there is enough space on your tables to accommodate your platters and decorations.
For some summery favors try one of the following:
