Sizzling Summer Outdoor Weddings

Outdoor ceremonies are my favorite here at the Hereford House at Terradyne Country Club.  There are so many fun things that you can incorporate into an outdoor setting.  Many couples here in Kansas shy away from the outdoors because of the incliment weather but I say why?  Some pointers that can help your guests beat the heat.

Wedding Fan Party Favors

Fun Party Favors

Most of the weddings that I have coordinated here at the Hereford Houes the bride and groom leave a party favor at each place setting for the guests to take as the leave the reception.  It is something special that they will remember the bride and grooms special day.  An idea for outdoor ceremonies in the ead heat of the summer is to have fans with the bride and grooms special day embroided or printed on the fan so they can fan themselves during the ceremony.  Place one on each chair or have them waiting for the guests in the entrance of the patio in a cute basket along with the programs.

Summer Cocktail Drink

Summer Sippin!

You can rent out the front foyer of the club called the Hearth Room.  The Herford House staff will set up an area with refreshments for those who drink some warm weathered beverages that I can't get enough of are our homemade Margaritas and our scrumptious Mojitos.  For those guests that don't drink or younger kids we can have bottled water or some fun punch!

Summer Floral Decor

Go Bright or Go Home

Flowers are in full blooms, millions of different cimbinations that you can arrange.  Have fun mixing big blooms and different hues.  You can't go wrong with pretty shades of yellow and coral.  Who says that you have to use floral arrangements for centrepieces have you seen anyone incorporate their favorite colors with fresh fruits on the table?  Take a look at these!

For all those Late Party Animals!

For those guests who party into the wee hours of the night and have been consuming alcoholic beverages, one more fun way to incorporate the summer heat is to offer a cool sweet treat to cap off the evening.  Why not have the Hereford House set up a Sundae Bar filled with the bride and grooms favorite ice cream flavors and the guests can pick their own toppings?!!

Happy Wedding Planning
