Shout it from the rooftops: SUMMER IS ON THE WAY! Rainy days aside, keep your wedding bright and gorgeous this summer with our round-up of the hottest trends guaranteed to get the party started. Alert: We’ve got EVERYTHING your wedding needs!
Tropical Drinks Trolley
Retro, funky and loaded with all the gear you’ll needing to make the most fabulous cocktails going, your wedding party will be the words one everyone’s lips when you roll one of these babies in! Park up a vintage style trolley and set up a DIY drinks station at your reception: For a tropical twist, pile it high with fantastic fruits and daring botanicals – perfect if your guests are up for piña coladas and getting caught in the rain!
These floating candles look GORGEOUS and are well worth considering if you want to add a little bit of glamorous movie magic to a water feature or swimming pool at your venue. It will only become more and more romantic as the light fades- make sure to speak your florist and see what they can do, we think they look amazing nestled in these little boxes of delicate flowers.
Make the most of the good weather and treat your guests to a reception in a tipi! We know they’ll love the boho atmosphere reminiscent of balmy summer nights and dancing the night away at festivals- fairy lights and magical purple lighting are a must!
Here Comes The Sun
Who can resist the cheerful yellow of a beautiful bunch of sunflowers, especially when they’re combined with purples and pinks in these adorable lace trimmed jars. DIY is not only trending but can also save you some money- these mason jar centrepieces are so easy to make but look really effective and can add a softer touch to a more rustic barn setting.
Snow Cone Cocktails
Love a slushie? These remind us of being poolside and we LOVE them! Apart from being a childhood throwback, the humble slushie has been mixed up with alcohol reinvented as the snow cone cocktail. Wonderfully refreshing for your guests, serve these up for instant yum! We don’t think that there’s a better way to celebrate the summer than with an icy drink in hand – experiment with fruity flavours and shaved ice for a rather adult snow cone turned out in a glass!
Sparkle and Shine
We love these pictures of Real Weddings Chris and Sarah, created by handing out sparklers to their guests. Ask your photographer to use a long exposure to capture the light trails and just make sure to check with your venue that sparklers are permitted on site!
