Suddenly, it feels like summer. The humidity is creeping up, afternoon thunderstorms have begun and it hit 90 degrees the other day. If you plan on embracing summer in all it’s glory and are planning a June, July or August wedding, think about incorporating the season with a perennial summer favorite, berries! Delicious strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries hit their peak during the summer months and their deep hues can make for an unexpected but totally appropriate summer palette. A gradient of berry shades would look stunning on your bridesmaids and berries make a fabulous accent in florals. And, of course, think of all the delicious ways they could be incorporated into the food and drink! Maybe individual baskets of local berries as favors? The possibilities are endless….and so sweet!
