All you need is some inspiration and using your imagination. For this matter, we have chosen to come with some ideas that are going to keep you on the move.
The wedding reception decorations
Using nature as a major source of inspiration is going to help you enrich the pieces of décor and the wedding flower arrangements. Apply for small miniatures and figurines, such as bumble bees or bees – these will make the décor look complete.
These elements should be taken into consideration, in the case in which your wedding reception takes place in an open air space, such as a garden or park.
There’s also the case in which you want to recreate the atmosphere of a marine wedding, for this matter think of using tones like blue marine or sand. Take into account blue table wraps combined with bamboo chairs. For a personal touch, naming each table as a place that makes you remember of a beloved spot of meeting – this will also make the difference. For instance, we were thinking of names, like “The Park” or “The Garden”.
The wedding flower arrangements
A great idea would be to make wedding flower arrangements from specific flowers to this season and you can attach some others, which are among your favorite ones. Also, there’s the idea of fruits, adding these to flowers as well. Fill tall and transparent vases with green apples or limes and add flowers on the top side.
Use vintage vases if you want a more special look for your wedding flower arrangements and for the reception entirely.
As for the colors that we suggest you to take into account, we were thinking of wedding flower arrangements and centerpieces that are made in colors like pale pink or even peach or strong pink.
The wedding menu should be also taken into consideration for a summer wedding theme
The food that you serve your guests should be light and they do not have to be stuffed with what you are serving!
A great idea would be to serve the wedding guests some cocktails that have your own recipe, such as a martini in a tropical look or lemonade served in big containers or even vases…. Also, don’t forget the ice – it’s essential!
Getting back to food, make sure that you do not serve consistent meals to your guests in the wedding reception. In what concerns the wedding cake, we were thinking you should choose aromas that are really refreshing, such as lemon or cranberries. Also, it would be a really nice idea to serve them ice cream, don’t you think so? Serving a wedding cake made of fruits seems a great idea as well!

And when we say marine details and motifs, we refer to sand, shells, sea horses and even waves.
As for the wedding favors, think of small boxes that have in them shells – as to maintain the theme of the wedding. In order to offer your guests a useful gift, we were thinking of a pair of flip flops as wedding favors, but I n miniature of course. If you want to be funny and offer the guests a really interesting moment, then you can offer them normal sized flip flops, they will surely use these accessories with pleasure.
