Summer Decor Inspiration

Each season comes with its own beautiful aesthetic and summer is no exception. The warm weather inspires a plethora of ways to personalise your wedding venue and in today’s blog post from Verona Couture, we discuss how you can add a dash of summer fun to your wedding decor.


Think fun and frivolous – if you’re looking to add a little summer sparkle to your wedding day, it’s time to get creative. Instead of traditional favours, peg straw hats to string hanging from the walls, ceiling or beams in your reception venue. Such additions will create a cute focal point and a quirky backdrop, perfect for photos. If you’re feeling extra creative, you could also weave foliage or artificial flowers around the string or wire to complete the look.

If you have the bonus of an outside space, consider using hay bales covered with folded cotton blankets as extra seating – add vintage wooden boxes, containing handheld parasols and mini bottles of suncream and you have an adorable summer setting. These added extras are not only useful for your guests, they also bring beautiful details to the venue which are unique and personal to your wedding.


Cool your guests down with some fruity cocktails. Summer weddings are the perfect opportunity to go all out when it comes to your drinks menu. For an added twist, put mini ice lollies into your drinks – they will act as a way to keep the drink cool and be an extra treat for your guests. Another way to create photo worthy drinks is to add edible flowers, petals or fruit to the drink or the ice cubes inside it.

Ice buckets are a great way to store drinks on each table in the reception venue. Consider using clear buckets and adding petals, flowers, glitter or coloured stones to the water and ice to create a practical focal point on each table.
