We’ve made it past Memorial Day weekend and finally, finally the weather has warmed up and is starting to cooperate. We may have missed out on an official spring, but at least it’s not cold and rainy anymore. Fingers crossed this means that summer is coming and you know what summer means, don’t you? Summer means weddings.

Surfs up dudes! It’s time to shake up the typical wedding playlist with the perfect Beach Boys song that’s sure to make you want to leave the other wallflowers behind and hit the dance floor. So when the DJ starts to take requests hit ‘em with this classic and rejuvenate your dance moves in one easy step.

 

Mojitos

After all that over joyous dancing you need a light refreshing drink, so sidle up to the bar and order yourself a mojito. It’s my go-to summer drink because it’s the perfect blend of mint and citrus and it instantly makes you feel cool and comfortable and kind of like you might be sitting on a beach somewhere under a giant umbrella.

A Good Go-To Gift

Rose gold and copper colored accessories are super popular and thanks to the cocktail the Moscow Mule, copper drink ware is the perfect gift for the trendy couple. I love this copper shaker because it’s a practical gift, it’s pretty and it’s something that most couples probably wouldn’t buy for themselves. Fancy, pretty and fun? I’m in.

A Versatile Outfit

No one wants to wear the same thing to every wedding, but between hotels, travel and gifts, you can end up shelling out a lot of money during wedding season. That’s why it’s good to have an outfit that you can tweak and wear again. This dress is a great example. It’s a blank canvas with a modern fit, a little bit of structure, and it won’t make you look like a bridesmaid. You can add a statement necklace, a belt, a shawl, or a cropped cardigan and easily up-cycle your look from wedding to wedding.

 

Armed with these suggestions you’re sure to have get through wedding season like a pro.
