Not only do hibiscus trees look gorgeous, they’re available at nurseries all over the world. For a stunning ceremony marker, set two like-size topiaries in simple pots and stand in front of them as you say «I do.» Afterward, consider planting them nearby.
Once you’ve set a date and chosen a location, it’s time to let friends and family in on your plans. One ingenious way? A telegram-style invitation suite, which looks remarkably like the real thing.

Let your maids keep their ladylike composure — even in the heat — with cotton handkerchiefs bearing their names.
Keep Them Cool
The hostess with the mostest (that’s you) always has her guests’ comfort in mind. Help loved ones beat the heat before a sun-drenched ceremony. Set up a self-serve station in the shade, and stock it with refreshing amenities. Dip towels in ice water, wring them out, and roll them up. For extra credit, scent them with a spritz of Lothantique Linen Water in lavender or grapefruit. Hydrate guests with water flavored with lemon, cucumber, or fruit slices. And so no one gets burned, set out paper parasols and sunscreen wipes like these shown, from La Fresh.
Warm Them Up
If the forecast is frosty, offer these cozy extras instead. Place a stack of shawls at the entrance to your ceremony, or drape one over every other chair at your reception.
Tea For Me!
Dress up herbal tea bags with our «Enjoy!» tag, and serve them before or after your vows.
Behold, a trio of uses for this narrow cloth from Grayline Linen. It’s inexpensive and comes in a rainbow of pretty colors.
Making this no-sew decoration is as easy as basic math thanks to the fabric’s long, skinny shape and finished edges. Add the table length to the overhang amount for each end, then cut to size.
Fabric Welcome Bags
Stock this durable, beach-bound tote with goodies for your weary travelers — but first, ask your bridesmaids to help you make them. Cut 3 feet of fabric, sew a 1/2-inch hem on each end, and stitch on jute braided trim to create handles. Finish by sewing edges together, right sides facing in, then turn right side out.
Turn the tote at left (sans strap) upside down for instant chair decor. Choose this pink-and-yellow scheme for a tropical or desert locale, or opt for Grayline’s crisp blue-and-white stripes at the beach.
The first sign of a great party? Drinks — even better if they guide merrymakers to their tables, too. Sail smoothly from ceremony to reception by offering beverages that indicate guests’ table assignments. Set out glasses alphabetically (or send servers around with trays).
Everything here can be made in advance; print table numbers and name bands from our website, and cut them out before you go. On location, affix the name bands to rental glasses (snipping to fit), and slip numbers onto Aardvark 10 1/2-inch jumbo straws.
Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.
A collection of textile samples lay spread out on the table – Samsa was a travelling salesman – and above it there hung a picture that he had recently cut out of an illustrated magazine and housed in a nice, gilded frame. It showed a lady fitted out with a fur hat and fur boa who sat upright, raising a heavy fur muff that covered the whole of her lower arm towards the viewer.
