It's every girl's dream .. that moment the one you love asks you those four words you've been waiting to hear since the day you've been dressing up in mum's net curtains playing the beautiful bride. YES. The moment has come to arrange one of the most amazing days in your life. Your outdoor garden wedding!

The Spring / Summer season is the most popular for weddings, the certainty of warmer weather and the options for an outdoor celebration is very high on the list for many brides-to-be.

For you and your fiancι, it has been decided on the delightful outdoor garden wedding. You visualise sun-dappled leaves casting glorious shadows on the green, lush grass.

The thought of organising a wedding may seem daunting, so for a garden wedding so I have pulled together my favourite top 10 garden wedding tips to help you create your dream come true:

1. Provide Parasols for Shade

For the warmer months when the garden wedding option becomes viable, providing shade is of utmost importance. Parasols – have a bucket of gorgeous parasols on entry for your lovely guests. You can even have them customised with both your monogrammed initials. Cute!

2. Ice buckets of water and refreshments

Place ice buckets strategically around the area where the wedding will take place – important to keep your guests hydrated if it's a hot and sunny day. And you can make personalised labels for the water bottles too.

3. Comfortable Seating

Seating is paramount at weddings (no one wants to be standing up for the entire ceremony) but it should be stunning in design and theme of the garden wedding. Cushions, throws and huge scatter cushions are pretty and provide a functionality of comfort.

4. Photographs and Memories

Wrap a tree in fairy lights with photographs to display memories of the couple.

5. Create a 'fan' for the Wedding Ceremony Program

Make mini fans for each guest with the event ceremony printed on the fan. Functional and fun!

6. Hire an ice-cream / gelato cart and scooper!

Nothing better than a refreshing gelato – and super cute looking among the green grass!

7. Wedding Favours – garden wedding means sunnies!

Provide cute and colourful sunglasses as wedding favours.

8. Garden Wedding Lighting

Ambience is so important especially as the sun is setting .. try lighting (battery operated) lanterns underneath tablecloths for the perfect warm lighting.

9. Insect repellent – a MUST for a garden wedding!

Arrange for personalised sachets for an even more fun way for a relatively mundane aspect.
