So what if it’s freezing out there? We’re dreaming of sunshine, lazy days, and… a gorgeous summer wedding! If you’re tying the knot this summer, why not take advantage of the mild weather by holding an outdoor wedding? We think a lush green garden warmed by the afternoon sun is just about the most perfect place to get married. The sun peeking through the trees, the sound of birdsong, and the smell of fresh-mown grass in the air – can’t you just picture it?
This season we’re using delicious summer fruits as the inspiration for our wedding themes. Think luscious raspberries, tart strawberries and handfuls of juicy blueberries. What could be more fun than a wedding on a fruit farm, where the guests can pick their own dessert? Lay the tables with sweet rustic patchwork tablecloths and top with simple floral arrangements in jam jars. Hang strings of paper lanterns from the trees for a touch of whimsical charm. The colors are fabulous – deep reds, offset by shades of blue. Serve your guests with fruity treats like cupcakes, and for a sweet afterthought, how about sending them home with a tiny personalized jar of strawberry jam. It’s all about spreading the love, after all!

From country charm to city chic, the summer fruit theme is also perfect for a more sophisticated event. How about an elegant peaches and cream wedding? The color palette is very classic – ivory and silver and shades of soft peach, creating a subtle yet glamorous backdrop for your big day. The ideal venue is a stately mansion, or imposing public space like a concert hall or even library. Fill the rooms with floral arrangements, using fresh peaches as accents, and lots of full-blown roses. On the tables, give each guest a memento of your wedding in a sweet peach organza pouch, and keep bowls of peaches everywhere for people to help themselves. Your guests will never have seen anything quite so beautiful or so elegant!

Citrus fruits flood the fruit stalls in summer, so why not use them as the inspiration for your summer wedding? A lemon and lime theme is fresh, colourful, and ultra-cool for a hot summer event. Think crisp white tablecloths, gorgeous yellow and fresh green accents, and bridesmaids dressed in pretty pale lemon with green sashes. You can even integrate lemons and limes into the bouquets they carry! Serve citrus inspired food and drink – lemon tarts and lime pie, with a stand for old-fashioned home-made lemonade. Extend the theme to the cake with pretty yellow and green floral decorations, and finish it off with a sweet personalized cake topper with your names engraved on it. It’s the ultimate in summer wedding prettiness…
