Summer is often considered peak wedding season, thanks to its warm, beautiful weather. However, July isn’t as popular for weddings as June, August or September— which is a shame, because we at Long Jewelers believe there's no finer time to say "I do" than amidst July's balmy breezes and blue skies. Picture exchanging vows as the golden sun dips below the horizon, casting its warm embrace upon your celebration along the sun-kissed shores of Virginia Beach. Join us as we explore why July, with its enchanting ambiance and endless possibilities, is the ultimate month to begin your forever journey together.

In this idyllic setting where the weather whispers promises of endless summer days, July is an excellent month for a wedding, inviting you to embark on your journey together under the sun-dappled skies of Virginia Beach.

Beautiful Summer Color Palettes

July presents a canvas of endless possibilities for crafting a distinct and diverse color palette, especially for enchanting outdoor weddings. While vibrant, summery hues like sunny yellows and oceanic blues naturally evoke the essence of the season, July's palette extends far beyond that, inviting couples to explore a spectrum of tones that reflect their individual style and vision. From the soft blush of seashell pinks to the depth of rich grays or the majestic allure of deep blues, the month offers an exquisite tapestry of colors to paint a wedding celebration that is uniquely yours.
