Whether you’re reciting your vows in the comfort of your family church or in the warm light of the sun, all summer weddings have a few things in common. They’re surrounded by warm weather and sunshine, feature lighter outfits for the wedding party as well as guests and have some of the best seasonal wedding flowers.

So, how do you pick something appropriate for the season when looking for favors? Summer wedding favors should not only be useful but also tie in aspects of the summer. Need some inspiration? We’ve got you covered.

Nothing’s cooler than a crowd full of matching sunglasses. You can pick from seven colors to match them to your wedding colors.
