Wedding Trivia Thursday | North Carolina Wedding Planner

The superstition that the bridegroom must not see his bride before the wedding stems from the days when marriages were arranged and the groom might never have seen the bride. There was the chance that if he saw her, he might bolt. Other sources say that to see the bride in her dress is peering into the future, which can bring bad luck.

Wedding Inspiration Wednesday {Summer Wedding} | North Carolina Wedding Planner

May through August is the number one most popular time of year to get married, and for good reason too. Summer weddings are full of sunshine and warmth, and allow you to get married outside in good weather. The color palettes are pretty amazing too!


Check out some of our favorite summer wedding ideas and don't forget that you can follow us on Pinterest for even more seasonal wedding inspiration.

This is just breathtaking! I love this idea for an outdoor summer ceremony. The pews create the feeling of being in a church, but allow guests to enjoy the summer air.
 
 
 

Sunglasses would make an excellent {and fun} favor for any outdoor summer wedding!
