The Great Outdoors
Outdoor ceremonies and receptions continually appeal to couples. Choose a fragrant garden or a lovely vineyard. Use elegant tents that provide protection from the sun, but allow the beauty of the natural environment to enhance the occasion. Decorate trees or other outdoor structures with Chinese lanterns or twinkling lights. Il Tulipano has hosted a number of memorable outdoor weddings, browse through our photo gallery to catch a glimpse of what your wedding could look like.
Stave Off the Heat
Instead of traditional floral bouquets, consider elegant hand fans. Continue the theme for guests by offering traditional accordion styled fans or sturdy wedding programs attached to a simple popsicle like or bamboo stick. These options allow everyone from the wedding party to the spectators the opportunity of staying cool. An alternative for daytime events might include colorful parasols.
Whether designed as a self-serve location or manned by a designated guest, a refreshment bar offers a fun accompaniment to the cake table. Stock the location with juices and soft drinks for younger guests along with an array of colorful bottles, fresh fruits and syrups for cocktail lovers.
Consider this option in lieu of a traditional cake, or combine the two on the same table. Display a variety of luscious fresh summer fruits along with elaborately decorated cupcakes, selections of confections and other snack options.
I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream
