It’s now mid-June and wedding season is already full swing. With that in mind, I’ve decided to put together a short list of ideas for your summertime wedding. So if you’ve decided to have your wedding abroad or have instead opted to have it in one of the more sun-washed corners of the British Isles, then I’m sure you’ll find something in this list that will compliment your big day.
1. One of life’s greatest pleasures has got to be enjoying a cold, sweet ice cream on a searing hot day and this is why I have made having a Gelato Bar at your summertime wedding number 1 on this list. So go one, let your guest cool off to a tasty selection of Italian sodas and Gelato.
2. Decorating the reception area in fragrant bouquets is something that I I have noticed more and more in recent years. Be it Dahlias, Roses or Lavender or even a combination of all three, the inclusion of the flowers will compliment the day perfectly.
3. Everyone loves cocktails, right? However, some cocktails are more equal than others, especially when it comes to finding the right drink to match the setting of your wedding, but the idea of sipping on a Piña Colada or a Cosmopolitan is the summer sun is currently making me very thirsty!
4. While pool parties rank fairly low on list’s of must-have wedding add on’s, I have to admit I’ve been to a few weddings recently and the pool parties worked a treat. An opportunity to cool off on a steaming hot day in the company of friends and family with a cocktail or gelato ice cream in hand just sounds delightful, so why not give your guest a treat?
