Ahhh, what can we say about summer weddings? For starters, the weather is gorgeous and people’s spirits are high (aka: they’re in a jubilant, partying mood). And the creativity that comes with using everything nature has to offer as the backdrop and foundation for your wedding-day details makes it oh-sooo romantic. From couples riding tandem bikes to guests sending wish lanterns into the air, there are a zillion ways to make one summer wedding better than the next. But wait—don’t be fooled. Nailing these “summer wedding musts” won’t necessarily be a piece of cake. Summer weddings have an air of ease about them but that doesn’t mean they’re easy to plan (read 10 Mistakes Couples Make When Planning a Summer Wedding for more on this). Assuming you’re a creative bride who can pull off these must-steal ideas, we’ll simply suggest one thing: love your vendors. Really. An amazing caterer, an out-of-this-world events planner, and a florist so innovative and smart you want to kick him just to make sure he’s human can make all the difference in making your vision come to life.

And then there are those brides who can DIY-it all the way and have their summer wedding be the party of the century on a nickel-and-dime—and for that, we hate you. (Kidding.) But really, for the rest of you, start getting inspired now with our 10 ways to have the best summer wedding ever. Seriously, I am so obsessed with each of these ideas, I almost want to go and get married all over again! Like, tomorrow.
