Feeling like summertime around here? We sure think so! We’re seeking out tropical inspiration that captures everything about this sunshiny time of year. From palm leaves to pineapples, tropical details are in this season… and weddings are no exception. If you’re planning a summertime ceremony, bring a breezy atmosphere to life in our versatile barn venue. Our wooden walls are the perfect canvas for any theme you can dream up. Use one or two of these details to bring summertime vibes to any wedding, without going too over the top:
- Bright florals: nothing says summertime like colorful centerpieces and bouquets bursting with vibrant hues. Use lush greenery throughout the venue to transform our barn into a tropical haven. Accented with bright oranges and pinks, your summertime florals are sure to leave a memorable impression on every guest. Don’t forget to add a few blooms to the cake!
- Palm leaves: one this season’s hottest trends, palm leaves are everywhere in fashion, interior design, and of course weddings! Use palm leaves as part of your décor (in vases near the bar, or laying flat underneath your cake stand). Or, bring a truly unforgettable detail to life by having your calligrapher write out the menu on an oversized palm frond.
- Tropical cocktails: who doesn’t love a beachy cocktail? Make your signature drink a refreshing treat that tastes like summer and looks delightfully tropical. For an easy recipe, layer orange juice and a splash of grenadine into your champagne flutes—this sunset-colored drink is always a crowd-pleaser. On the opposite side of the spectrum, go for blue hues with tropical rum and blue curacao.
Remember, you don’t have to plan an exotic (and expensive!) getaway wedding to capture a tropical feel. With these barn wedding ideas, your local Austin barn venue can easily be transformed into a summery wedding. Just a few details can take your reception from typical to tropical and memorably one-of-a-kind. If you love summertime as much as we do, consider using one of these tropical details for your special day here at Brodie Homestead!
