The lovely summer weather should soon be approaching.
Why not take advantage of the sunny weather and celebrate with an outdoor wedding and do something a little different?
Check out our 13 creative outdoor wedding trends for this summer and make your celebration one that you and your guests will remember.
- Flower Crown
Forget the tiara. Celebrate summer with a crown made from your favourite, or native flowers.
- Fragrant Bouquet
Trending for 2019 are bouquets featuring dahlias, roses, lavender, peonies, wildflowers, poppies and sunflowers.
- Bridesmaid Dresses
The colour trends for summer 2019 are bright, rich and bold. Consider shades of pink, yellow, red and orange. Set the colour and have your bridesmaids choose their own style.
Rather than confetti or rice, have your guests blow bubbles as you leave the ceremony.
Give your guests the option to shade themselves with small paper & wood parasols. Have a special message painted on the parasol to give your guests a keepsake they can take home with them.
- Garden Games
Keep your guests entertained during the reception. Giant jenga, sack races or croquet. Make them as quirky, wild or tame as you like.
- Wish Lanterns
As the sun sets, guests can join you, as you release wish lanterns into the evening sky.
- Food Stalls & Spreads
Rather than hire traditional caterers for a sit down meal, organise a stall, alfresco spread or themed buffet so guests can munch and mingle.
For dessert, what about a vintage ice cream bicycle cart?
- Drink Stalls, Bars & Carts
Allow your guests to help themselves by creating a mimosa bar cart, a gin bar, or alcohol-infused popsicles. Place beers into a vintage bathtub filled with ice. Create a colourful soda or fruit-infused water bar for the kids and non-drinkers.
- Wedding Cake
Naked cakes are trending this year. Forgo the icing and decorate with fruit and flowers. Don’t like cake? Try a tier of different seasonal fruit pies.
As the sun sets, coloured paper lanterns, cafe lights, string chandeliers or twinkle lights, strung from the trees will provide a romantic glow and keep the bugs away from your guests.
- Fire Pit
Create a chilled and rustic vibe or provide warmth after the sun sets.
Instead of a DJ, consider a live band, string quartet or acoustic guitarist
