Barbecues, garden games, couple’s cocktails and live music under fantastic festoon lighting: summer weddings spell laid-back fun under the sun.
Whether you’re planning a breezy beach ceremony, sunny garden party or a nature-inspired soiree by the sea, it’s time shrug off the winter chill and embrace the sunshine with these hot looks for summer weddings.
1. Delivering the perfect ‘destination wedding’
Ever-growing in popularity, the destination wedding is a hot summer trend and the number one way to get your wedding party started, and then to have it stretch on for days to come! It gives your closest friends and family the chance to have a much-needed holiday with their nearest and dearest, with a guaranteed party thrown in for good measure.
There’s no better way to commemorate both the holiday and your big day than with a premium Engraved Wedding Leatherette Luggage Tag. Practical and personal, it’s the perfect gift to share with your guests, and will help all of your guests’ luggage arrive home safely.
It’s also the perfect sentimental gift, and the professional laser engraving allows you to inscribe the details of your wedding day for a customised keepsake that will stand the test of time.
2. A simple, light and bright affair
When the sun is shining, the Champagne is flowing, and the sweet sound of acoustic music is in the air, the stage is set for your perfect wedding in the sun. So why go over-the-top with décor, stationery or signage?
For this summer’s weddings, it’s all about keeping it timeless, classic and simple, and laser-cut and engraved signs are the perfect way to welcome your guests to your big day, or kindly ask your guests them to switch off their mobiles, cameras and devices so that they can share this special moment with you.
First, select an easy-to-read, stunning Welcome Sign, like this Printed A1 Size Wedding Welcome Sign / Seating Chart. Clean and stylish, it gives a no-fuss feel and is perfect for an outdoor reception. It’s also available in a variety of colours and finishes, including black, frosted, clear, mirror silver and mirror gold, so
whether you’re in the botanic gardens, a yacht club or boathouse by the bay, there’s a colour that will fit in perfectly with the stunning surrounds without detracting from them.
Many of today’s bride and grooms are also now opting for an ‘unplugged ceremony’, and an attractive-yet-subtle Engraved Acrylic 'Unplugged' Ceremony Sign can ensure your guests switch off their devices so they can be fully present while you say ‘I do’.
There’s no way Great Aunt Nora is going to get a better pic with her iPad than your professional photographer will, so simply place this sign at the entrance to your ceremony or reception, and smile as your guests swap their devices for happy memories.
A summertime bash calls for a light, airy feel, and this extends to every element of your styling plans. On your tables, opt for simple yet eye-catching Engraved Acrylic Wedding Menus. They’re clean, stylish and elegant, while still having the ‘wow’ factor, and come in three colours – black, clear and frosted – so they’ll easily fit in with any other décor.
An Acrylic Wishing Well Box is another classic way to make an unforgettable impression, while still keeping things simple and summer-bright. Each one is custom-made and features a mirror gold or mirror silver base. The lid features an opening for your guests to deposit their cards and well wishes, and also allows easy access for you to collect the items at the end of the night.
3. Get back to nature
When you picture summer, you’re likely to envisage stunning natural vistas, dappled sunlight and long, warm nights enjoyed over a cocktail. This season is all about celebrating and enjoying the natural beauty of our country, so this year, be inspired by earthy tones and effortless, nature-inspired décor.
Soft woodgrains tie in perfectly with any venue. Help your guests cool off with an Engraved Wooden Wedding Wooden Fan, opt for Round Wooden Placecards for your glassware, use Laser Cut Wooden Table Numbers and share the love with a Laser Cut ‘Always and Forever’ Bamboo Wedding Sign.
To give your guests a piece of your wedding to take home, an Engraved Wooden Wedding Coaster is a timeless piece that will be a beautiful, functional keepsake from your special day.
