How to Plan the Perfect Summer Wedding at The Butterfly Pavilion

Embrace the Natural Beauty

The Butterfly Pavilion is renowned for its lush greenery and vibrant flowers. Take advantage of this by incorporating natural elements into your decor to truly bring out the feeling of the season. Use summer florals for your centerpieces, bouquets, and boutonnieres to create a seamless blend between your celebration and the surrounding beauty of the pavilion.

Choose the Right Time

Timing is everything when it comes to a summer wedding. Consider a late afternoon or early evening ceremony when the temperature is cooler. This ensures you and your guests are comfortable and also provides gorgeous lighting for your photographs during golden hour. The Butterfly Pavilion also provides plenty of shade from our surrounding wooded areas, and we provide fans inside and around the pavilion to keep the air flowing.

Plan for the Weather

While summer days are beautiful, they can also be unpredictable. Have a backup plan in case of rain or excessive heat. The Butterfly Pavilion offers indoor options that maintain the outdoor feel without the worry of weather woes.

Light and Airy Attire

Encourage your bridal party and guests to wear light fabrics that breathe well in the warmth. For brides, consider a dress with lighter materials like chiffon or organza. Grooms can look dapper in linen or other lightweight suit materials.

Summer Wedding Food

Refreshing Menu Options

Work with caterers to create a seasonal menu that features fresh, local ingredients. Think chilled soups, grilled entrees, and an abundance of fruits and vegetables. Don’t forget to include some refreshing signature cocktails or mocktails!

Stay Hydrated

Provide plenty of non-alcoholic drink options to keep everyone hydrated. Infused waters, lemonades, and iced teas are not only practical but can also be presented in a way that complements your wedding style.

Capture the Moments

Capture the Moments

Hire a photographer who has experience shooting in natural lighting and can capture the vibrant colors and shadows that summer brings. Discuss beforehand the specific shots you want that take advantage of The Butterfly Pavilion’s unique landscapes. Our Kissing Cove, lush meadow, and wildflower field are just a few popular spots on summer days!

Entertainment for All Ages

Consider lawn games like croquet, cornhole, or giant Jenga for outdoor fun. These activities will entertain guests during cocktail hour and add a playful element to your elegant affair. It’s also never too warm to end the evening with s’mores!

End the Night with a Bang

As the sun sets and the temperatures cool down, end your celebration with a sparkler or bubble send-off, or even a small fireworks display (if discussed with us first, we can make, and HAVE made this happen!). It’s the perfect way to cap off a beautiful summer wedding at The Butterfly Pavilion.

Remember, the key to a successful summer wedding is thoughtful preparation. With these tips and the stunning backdrop of The Butterfly Pavilion, you’re well on your way to creating a day that’s as breathtaking as the love you’re celebrating.
