Sunny days, clear skies and love. The summer season is a popular time to get married, for a few reasons. Couples who decide to get married during this season don’t have to worry about snowstorms and depending on the wedding destination, the event can double as a vacation for guests. There are more opportunities for outdoor photos and other fun that just can’t happen in frigid temperatures. This year, couples could even take advantage of getting married on what some may deem the lucky dates of 7-7-17 and 7-17-17. An easy pattern to remember when recalling your anniversary, right?
Our couples at The Vow Exchange have something in common with some celebrities who also decided to tie the knot in the glare of the summer sun:
