Summer Is a Great Time for Hanging Around

One great hanging decoration idea is to hang bottles from tree branches. Paint these bottles in transparent coloured glass paint that you can buy from any crafts store and tie flowers around the tip of the bottles. During the sunshine, the colours reflect everywhere and at night you can put candles in the bottles and they look great hanging from the trees.

Decorate Your Venue with Cupcake Garlands
This idea looks especially great if you are having an outdoor summer wedding as when the light summer breeze hits the garland it gentle moves around.
Garlands are a favorable wedding decoration and a great way to make your own garland is with cupcake cases.
You can find really great decorative cupcake cases with interesting designs on them at most supermarkets in the home baking section.
These garlands are very simple to make too – all you have to do is pierced a hole through the middle of the base of the cupcake case (a large needle head will do the trick) and then thread through a piece of string.
These look great all presented on a table near the entrance to your wedding venue for your guests to pick up and twiddle with which they are socializing and waiting for the celebrations to begin.
All you need to do is head down to your local crafts store, gift store or supermarket and pick up some lightweight colourful and quirky wrapping paper.
Cut squares out of the paper, you want to aim for 6-8 inch in length, and on the plain side of the square with a ruler, draw lines from corner to corner.
After pinpointing the centre of the square using the lined with a colourful pin, cut down the lines from the outer corners for about an inch.
Then, in the right hand side of each corner, fold this into the centre and pin in place.
Then, with one of your push pins you want to create a little hole around an inch from one of the ends of a wooden dowel, but make sure the hole doesn’t go all of the way through the dowel.
With a glue gun, put some glue into the hole and push in your pinwheel and leave to dry.
Using your imagination or even ideas from other brides is an excellent chance for your to get creative, you will look back at your wedding day and know that you put your heart and soul into producing a gorgeous summer infused wedding.
When it’s time to go shopping for the perfect beach wedding dress, there are a few accessories you’ll want to remember to wear or bring along. This will help you select the perfect dress for your big day!
You should wear undergarments that are plain and that fit the contours of your body well rather than those with ruffles, bows, etc. This is so you can tell how the dress will look on the day of your wedding. Plus, you might think a dress doesn’t fit well if your undergarments are showing through, when in reality it will fit perfectly with different undergarments.
You’ll want to bring a pair of shoes that are very similar to the ones you’ll be wearing on your wedding day. This is essential in order to get the alterations right. While bridal shops typically have shoes available, they might not have the type available that you’re planning on wearing to a beach wedding.
You’ll want to take 1-2 friends or family members with you. It may be tempting to take more but with so many opinions it could be more of a distraction and more frustrating. Choose a few people you really trust and who you know will be honest and go from there.
If you try on a particular dress that you think might be perfect, you might want to see how it looks with your hair up. Take hair clips so you can clip your hair up quickly in case this happens.
When you bring the appropriate items with you, it will make dress shopping for your beach wedding much easier.
