1. An Outdoor Wedding Breakfast

Make the most of the season by having not only your ceremony outdoors but your reception, or wedding breakfast, too! This relaxed family style tables lining the lawn, or picnic style rugs and nibbles, or more elegant formal dining under chandeliers hung from a wisteria filled pergola.

2. Parasols to Protect Those Bare Shoulders

You might be hoping for sunshine and blue skies for a fabulous outdoor ceremony, but don’t forget how long you and your ladies will be stood out in it for – no bride wants lobster red bridesmaids in her wedding photos! Pretty parasols will protect those bare shoulders on the day and make for great gifts that will be cherished always.

3. Fans to Keep Your Guests Cool

And don’t forget your guests! If parasols are a little pricey, how about paper fans? To save a few pennies you could always either DIY them (some look SO easy) or have them do two jobs with fan ceremony cards/order of services.

Is there anything more cooling or calming than being on the water? I love it! So, what could be a more perfect way to spend an hour, than whiling it away with your new hubby in a boat…..just the two of you…..heavenly!…..Plus, super cute portrait opportunity!
