Finally the sun has come out and we are all feeling very, well, summery. So of course that got us thinking about all the summer weddings that are coming up and what we would really like to see feature at the next wedding we get to invited too.

From cooling refreshments to fun lawn games and pop-up photo walls, here’s some inspiration on how to make your summer wedding unique.

Cool refreshments

Lawn Games

While you’re off getting your wedding photographs taken make sure your guests are entertained by providing some fun garden games. Go for classics such as croquet or hoopla or have a bit of fun with Twister and welly throwing.

Pop-up photo wall

Keep the masses amused with a pop-up photo wall. Run a wedding selfie contest and create a wedding hashtag so your friends can tag you in their pictures.
