Summer – the season of outdoor weddings, hot days and cool summer drinks. Shady trees and relief from the heat are a must  – but how do you give the impression of being cool, calm and collected?

Blue hues work well for Summer weddings to bring a cool, crisp look. Try matching soft blues and sea tones with the men in beige and white tones to complete the look (a great option for beach and garden weddings). Keeping the tones light and soft rather than heavy and dark will add to the cool feel of your day.

For a more dramatic look, work in some cool greys and silvers into the floral arrangements or accessories. Try eucalyptus, white or pale pink peonies, white or apricot roses with small white flowers to give a loose fresh feel and soft velvety grey leaves for texture. Mercury glass, silver candlesticks, pale silver and pale blue linen will complete the look.
