If you are getting married outdoors this summer, reception yard games are a must! They are cheap, adorable, and they keep both kids and adults entertained while you are getting photos taken, or things start running late. In Spring and early summer you can buy lots of croquet and Bocce Ball sets cheap at Target or Rite Aid, but you can also make your own custom corn hole boards, or giant Jenga, or hopscotch! picture cute big hula hoops in your wedding colors.

With summer comes lots and lots of outdoor weddings. Some of the most gorgeous outdoor weddings are often held on private property, in the woods, under a big oak tree…or whatever kind tree you might have! A big tree can be the perfect ceremony backdrop, and with just a few simple streamers, lights, lanterns, it can look so elegant and whimsical. (click photos for source)
Whether you hire a caterer, or are making your own, food presentation really is important. Your dishes should look as yummy as they taste. They should look fresh and full and cohesive, not like a sad metal tray of slop. Invest in cute serving ware, table runners and signage.
Same goes for drinks/bars. Keep it fun, easy to access and adorable! Next to watching you get married, your guests are there for the food and drinks! Show them a good time, it really is the best THANK YOU a couple can give to their guests. (click photos for source)
