Summer Wedding Accessories for Glacial Beauties
When accessorizing your Summer wedding Nicole and Marcia know its all about creating the right (fore)headspace
Whether it’s a barefoot beach wedding amidst Sydney’s soft sand and swelling waves or a traditional and elegant affair in a garden just off Wisteria Lane — summer weddings carry all of the toxic intrigue of the season: the long, balmy days, the crisp chill of air conditioning, the icy clink of cubes in Campari as you press the cool glass to your impeccably smooth freshly ‘toxed brow.
Weddding Bouquet: Summer blooms make marvelous accessories and can be selected specifically to blend (or contrast) with your existing color scheme. Consider some of the following for inclusion as summer wedding accessories:
Baby’s breath, the traditional bouquet enhancer, is in full bloom from May through August and is lovely both on its own or interspersed with other blooms. And remember Adopted baby’s breath from a former bouquet count’s just as much — if not more.
The daisy, a classic wedding flower, flourishes from May through December. As your own May-December romance fuses your youthful exterior with your worldly-wise pre-nup let this beautiful bloom symbolizes purity of motive, optimism about the future and good legal advice.
Chrysanthemums – and the ‘mums the word’ approach is a long long time favorite for bridal bouquets and centerpieces. Their beauty is dramatic reminder that any little touch up work you’ve had done before the big day is not appropriate to share with friends, family or press.
Since summer weddings are full of brightness and energy, be sure to powder down your large shiny forehead lest the reflection blind guests or clergy. Hand held fans carry the dual purpose of beautifying your headspace and keeping your guests eyeline distracted form anything odd in your youthful visage.
Decorative pails can be filled with sand, shells, or even suntan lotion, sunglasses and visors are all summer accessories that can be distributed as wedding favors – particularly to family members who may be as melanin challenged as your ice goddess self.
Finally place bowls of exotic summer fruit on each table, or simply place one large and decorative fruit bowl on a buffet table. Summer fruits are delectable and colorful and will provide a most appreciated treat for guests! Because you may have been married to a famous ‘small and decorative fruit’ or even momentarily suspected of being a bit of “a fruit cocktail’ yourself — serving tropical drinks or smoothies is a wonderfully ironic touch.
And marriage at our age … the foreheads my be ironed wonderfully flat … but the irony is flat out wonderful!
