If you are planning a summer wedding, this summertime theme will be perfect. From hot sunny beaches to bright summer flowers, we have collected together a great selection of ideas for your sizzling summer wedding seating plan!

Seating plans and Escort cards

  • On a warm summer’s evening, what better than to use your escort card display as an opportunity to give your guests a refreshing chilled drink? Whatever drink you choose, from mini individual champagne bottles to refreshing cloudy lemonade, your guests will love this tasty way of finding their table!
  • Use bright summer flowers as a background for your wedding seating plan. For example, this pretty ‘summer love’ plan or the cheerful ‘bright flowers’ plan shown to the right here.
  • Baskets of fresh, ripe and juicy summer fruits can make a delicious fruity escort card display!

Create a village summer fete theme with a vintage style seating plan using village landmarks and streets as table names. String up some home made wedding bunting, and invite your guests to enjoy a coconut shy, candy floss stall or a tombola game.

Alternatively, bring summer beach fun to your seating plan with an escort card display made from these lovely folded deck chairs, or a DIY beach parasol escort card display.

  • Beaches from the UK or around the world
  • Summer fruits, such as strawberry, watermelon and blueberries
  • Summer flowers, such as buttercups, daisies and poppies
  • Favourite summer activities, such as BBQ, tennis or surfing

Table décor

There are so many beautiful flowers to choose from during the summer months. If you are using fresh flowers, your florist will be able to create beautiful table centrepieces using seasonal flowers.

This ‘One-minute inspiration: Summer flowers’ video has some lovely, colourful summer flower ideas that you could use for your wedding table centrepieces.

Alternatively, a great DIY solution would be pretty seasonal jam jar posies, adding a touch of country cottage style.

If you want to keep your centrepieces after the event, you could look into artificial floral decorations which can be remarkably realistic.

To the right is a summery sunflower centrepiece that would bring a splash of colour to your tables.

Summer pinwheel table decorations would look great on the table and, later, in the reception photos!

Tables could be dressed in a variety of summer styles – from white tablecloths with hessian runners for a rustic style, to red and white checked cloths for a summer garden wedding.
