Posted on March 15 by Molly Tully

With all this snow on the ground, the thought of a summer wedding just doesn’t seem possible. But for all of you summer brides, you KNOW your summer wedding is right around the corner! We’re sure you’re putting all the final touches into place—so make sure you haven’t overlooked these great tips and last-minute details from Colin Cowie for your summer wedding.

 

1. For brides and wedding guests, choose to style your hair in an up-do instead of styling your hair down. Bonus: Add pair of sparkling diamond stud or diamond drop earrings that will dazzle and complement your up-do.

2. Provide lots of shade for guests to cool down, such as a gorgeous tent or chic umbrella favors.

 

 

3. In addition to your signature drinks, add beverage stations so that every guest can stay hydrated and happy!
