Spring at Country Jewell is filled with fresh new greenery and beautiful blooms, and once summer rolls around, nature is at its beautiful best around here. Our event barn is an excellent reception spot to let everyone get out of the sun and heat, but planning to spend time outside too is pleasant for everyone. We have a couple of different areas that are perfect for an outdoor ceremony, including our lovely wedding gazebo. You can even bring some of the reception outdoors with fun lawn games.
When you and your guests spend more time outdoors, there are a few things you can do to make sure everyone is comfortable. A small table with suntan lotion and bug spray for them to use if necessary is a nice addition. By mid-summer, it will be hot and sunny. You can give out favors like sunglasses or wedding programs that double as fans.
A great way to keep all of your wedding guests from getting too hot is to have ice cold drinks at the ready. Big jugs full of tea or lemonade allow everyone to help themselves, and adding slices of fruit to the beverages give them extra tasty flavor. Keep the drinks cold without watering them down by freezing cubes of the beverage to use in place of regular ice cubes. As they melt, the flavor won't change.
Having a big tub filled with ice and bottled waters is also nice for your guests to have access to. If you'll be serving alcoholic drinks, now is the time to whip up Margaritas and Mojitos. Those are warm weather cocktails everyone seems to love. You can even offer a few frozen drinks to your guests with the rental of a frozen drink machine.
Use Seasonal Inspiration
The easiest way to get a summery feeling at your wedding is to use the colors, scents, and natural beauty from outside in your decorating. Tulips and daisies are popular springtime flowers. The bright blue of the sky, rich green of the trees and landscape, and pastels that match all of the spring blooms on the trees are excellent choices to use for wedding colors. Pantone's color of the year for 2017 is "Greenery," and incorporating that throughout your decor will feel like you've brought a little bit of the outdoors indoors.
Spring and summer offer opportunities that you just don't get in the winter and fall at our rustic wedding venue near Knoxville. Of course, those colder seasons do have some fantastic things about them that you don't get in the warm-weather months. In the end, as with all of your wedding decisions, do what makes you as a couple happy and it will be a great wedding!
When you get married at Country Jewell, no matter what the season, we will do our best to make sure the special day that you are dreaming of becomes a reality. We're happy to give you a tour of our event venue in Heiskell so that you can see for yourself what a glorious place this is to begin your happily ever after together.
