The best idea is to create different experiences in the garden. Have the ceremony on the front lawn under an intimate tent. Have cocktails around the pool or on the back lawn. While cocktails are being served out back, the front tent can be transformed for dinner.

The glamour of using heirloom candelabras and candlesticks in a casual setting is so unexpected and chic. Silver pieces mixed with China and elegant stemware creates a chic eclectic mix that’s romantic and personal.

Try keeping the florals under 30 cm in height so guests can see over them. Also instead of one arrangement use many smaller vases filled with a single flower all in your favorite colors. Shades of pinks, all white, or blues Look fabulous running down the center of the table.
