Leave a comment

With summer here in full shape, we’re all looking for ways to cool ourselves off – if possible, in the nicest ways out there. Of course, if you are planning a summer wedding in New Orleans, you want the same for your guests too – and an ice cream treat can be just the perfect way to make sure your beloved friends and relatives stay cool (and happy!).

What are some of the best ice creams you could serve at your Southern wedding? We have some suggestions for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Mint ice cream. What could be more refreshing and delicious than mint ice cream on a hot summer day? If you want to add a bit of diversity into the taste of this amazing dessert, try combining it with exotic fruit – a pineapple and mint ice cream will be a true delight to every single guest at your wedding!
  • Butter pecan ice cream. A bit of saltiness and a lot of sweetness will get you and your guests through the hotness of a summer day. A classic dessert that can be interpreted and re-interpreted as you wish – but it will always be appreciated by everyone, regardless of whether or not they are familiar with Southern cuisine.
  • Lemon pie ice cream. The Southern love of lemon pie is well-known everywhere – so why not turn this highly appreciated dessert into an icy one? We bet everyone invited at your wedding will want to take a serving of this, just enough to re-energize themselves and get back on the dance floor!
  • Buttermilk ice cream. Just a tad of sourness and a lot of fruity vibes can bring a huge smile on pretty much anyone’s face! Buttermilk ice cream is a deliciously Southern treat bound to attract your guests again and again. Don’t be surprised if many of them ask you for the recipe for your own variation of buttermilk ice cream (and yes, there’s a pretty much infinite range of combinations you can make, from strawberry and pretzels to blueberry cheesecake!).

  • Lemon pound cake. This is a truly delicious dessert, especially during the summer. The lemon in it will make it feel more than refreshing, and the scrumptious taste of the cake will surely make guests want to take another round of dancing.

It cannot get more summer-y than apricots, more scrumptious than cream-based desserts, or more comforting than fried pie – and imagine this dessert has them ALL. A true treat your guests will come back to again and again – because it’s just not the kind of dessert you can say “no” to, not to the first serving, and not to the second serving either.

Pick the best flowers for your summer wedding!

Food Art

Summer weddings can be a huge success – precisely because everyone has a lot more energy, the days are longer and you have a wider variety of options when it comes to décor, food and flowers too.

However, please keep in mind that it is absolutely crucial to choose the right flowers for a summer wedding. Otherwise, your beautiful flower arrangements and bouquet may wilt and even die much too soon, creating an unappealing ambiance for your wedding décor.

What are the best flowers for a summer wedding? We have gathered some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • In general, shopping locally and seasonally will ensure you that you choose gorgeous flowers that truly coordinate with your wedding season – and from multiple points of view. Plus, this can help you save a lot of money, so it is more than worth looking into the option.
  • Furthermore, it is also important to choose flowers that are more resistant when exposed to direct heat and sunlight. Sunflowers, orchids, succulents, dahlias, roses, carnations, calla lilies and freesias – these are just some of the best flowers to use for a summer wedding.
  • At the same time, there are also some flowers you should avoid. Generally speaking, flowers that are very delicate are not very suitable for summer weddings (e.g. peonies or hydrangeas). If you really cannot do without them, think of water-submerged centerpieces because this will protect the flowers from premature withering.
