Summer Weddings

As the Summer approaches thoughts turn to the busiest season of the year for weddings, and how we can help with providing the little things to make a big difference on your special day. Whether your theme is rustic, chic or boho the glass we provide for favours, tables and flowers could make all the difference to just how stunning your room looks.

The hottest trends right now always include candles, and nothing looks lovelier than a collection of jars filled with some sand, a few tiny shells and a votive candle. For real drama use different size jars and candles arranged artfully in the centre of your table. Our elegant Vecchia bottles look gorgeous with a few home grown flowers in them surrounded by a plethora of night lights in jars and can be gifted to the extra special people who will want a keepsake from your special day for the following days and weeks. Lots of candles help to ease the passage from wedding breakfast to evening reception and it can be a nice idea to leave boxes of matches on the tables with a time for guests to participate in a mass lighting when the atmosphere changes from formal to something more relaxed as the lights go down and the room gently glows in candle light. 

Wedding favours, thankfully, no longer need to consist of a few sugered almonds in netting but can be fun sweet filled tiny jars with personalised messages on, or sophisticated and elegant miniture bottles of home infused gin or vodka. Why not go for a mixture of both and use the favours as your place names too? That way each and every guest will know how much you value their presence and that you took time to consider their favour, message and seat arangement. 

Whatever you choose to do for your special day make sure you take time to savour the love and energy surrounding you to remember when all the guests have left and you are no longer focused on your wedding, but being married.
