Summer ceremonies, whether indoors or outdoors, can often leave guests hot and flustered. Keep them cool with these clever programs which fan out to create a nifty hand-held fan.
Wind your way down the aisle with a spiral set-up for your ceremony. It isn’t only a fun twist to a traditional seating plan –but it will give you a longer aisle and allow your guests a great view of your vows.
Lighten up a formal look for summer with white or ivory tux jackets. If your husband-to-be hates the idea of a formal suit and tie, ditch the waistcoats and get them to roll up their sleeves for a casual, cool and comfortable look.

One of the easiest ways to incorporate a summer feeling into your wedding is through your choice of flowers. We love bright pops of colour in a summer bouquet or your table décor.
Keep your guests hydrated in the summer sun with modern infused waters inspired by Jamie Oliver. It only takes seconds to turn a plain jug of water into a refreshing, cost effective thirst quencher and his clever combinations are great inspiration to keep things modern and fresh. Our favourites: cucumber & strawberries.
Keep your guests cool and refreshed with the latest adult treat taking South Africa by storm – wine and champagne popsicles.

Bye-Bye Bug Spray
Although summer is the most popular time of year to get married, the warm weather often brings with it creepy-crawlies, mozzies and more flies than usual. Keep the bugs at bay with clever repellents like citronella candles and these pretty bug repelling lanterns.
Clear tents and venue’s with a glass ceiling give you the best of both worlds – you’re protected from the elements at night while still being able to dine and dance under a canopy of stars.
Short Wedding Dresses
We saw them all over the Spring collections at Bridal Fashion Week and quite frankly we love the idea of a chic and sexy, short dress to dance the night away in.
