The Summer wedding – finishing touches for your celebration

If you’re planning a summer wedding, there’s still time to sort the all-important details! The finishing touches are often the most important for creating impact at your venue so don’t overlook them. We love brides who go for all out summer brights, with bold wow-factor details. Fuchsia, aqua blue, yellow, orange, green – mix up any colours you like for a wedding with personality. Whether it’s a coloured sash around your wedding dress or bright hanging pomanders in the reception room, it really is so easy to add a pop of colour. Real-bride Charlie, added a fab coloured underskirt to her dress, which really set the tone for her fun and quirky wedding last May. Not brave enough to deviate from the traditional wedding gown? Why not choose a more alternative dress to change into in the evening? I chose a gorgeous kittyanddulcie.com gown to change into for my own wedding earlier this month, and I’m so glad I did. Not only did everyone comment on how unique it was, but it was so much easier to dance in!

Of course, summer weddings don’t just have to be all about bright colours and statement ideas. We also love a good beach-themed celebration, especially with a vintage twist. Think old postcards, shell place names and stripy deckchairs and you’re half way there.

Finally, no summer wedding would be complete without fun outdoor activities. Real bride Lucy hired her very own skittle alley to keep her guests entertained and we love it! Nothing will bring your friends and family together more than a game of rounders or croquet, and it’s a cheap and easy way to keep children (and adults!) entertained.
