You’ve booked the venue, sent the invitations and bought the dress, now it’s time to add the finishing touches to your summer wedding. With this season hotting up its time for Confetti to run through it’s top 5 trends for summer weddings 2014!

1. Bunting

Whether your wedding style is retro or rustic we have the bunting for you; from floral, ‘Just Married’, ‘In Love’ and even mini bunting for your cake you can’t go wrong! Don’t be fooled by their simple nature, draping them amongst the trees, or from the ceiling of your venue can instantly transform the room.

 2. Jug Centrepieces and Favours.

Our large pitchers and jugs make the perfect table centrepiece, simply fill with summer flowers and foliage to instantly bring the summer theme to life. The room smelling of fresh summer flowers isn’t a bad thing either. Treat your guests with our summer inspired favours!
