Summer Wedding Inspiration |

The weather may still be a bit hit and miss but we are definitely in summer mode. We can’t stop dreaming of sunny beaches, fruity cocktails and dusting off our favorite dress for a summer wedding!

For those planning their summer wedding and want something bright, bold, fun and a little different, this mood board is sure to inspire you!

Opt for a selection of vibrant primary colours – a colourful contrast to the soft, pale pastel tones that have been dominating bridal styling in the recent months. We are loving lipstick red, aqua blue, butter cup yellow and crisp white!

 Summer Wedding Flowers

A summer wedding wouldn’t be complete without an array of colourful flowers! Don’t be afraid to mix and match different types of flowers and colours and display them in a range of bottles in different sizes and colours. We’ve used a mix of gerbera daisies, hydrangea’s and garden roses to create this striking, summery display.

Candy Bar

You’re never too old to enjoy sweeties! Treat your guests to a candy bar with all your favorite goodies. Fill bowls and jars with sweets and provide scoops and bags so that they can help themselves when they need a boost of energy before a night of dancing. Little pre-made candy bags also make cute favours to leave on your guests place settings.

Every summer wedding needs a signature cocktail/mocktail designed and named by the bride and groom! Offer these to your guests as they arrive at the reception – a personal and fun way to kick the evening off! Tubs full of ice and bottles of your favorite pop make a lovely cooling treat for your guests in the midday heat.

 Photo Booth

Great for all ages, a photo booth will keep your guests entertained for hours! Leave it to the pro’s and hire a photo booth or do-it-yourself using’s photo booth kit and disposable cameras!

 Summer Bridesmaids

Short or long? Straps or no straps? All the same colour, but different styles or all the same style but different colours? Which ever combination you choose, ensure the style is suitable for the weather, the colour of the dress will complement your chosen flowers and that your bridesmaids don’t get tan lines before the big day, if they are wearing a strapless dress! We love these chiffon bridesmaid dresses by Alexia Designs who does a wide range of pretty gowns in an endless selection of colours!
