    There's no better time to set the wedding bells ringing than in summer, with exceptional weather to get you through your big day.

    If you're planning on holding your summer nuptials at home, then we've got a few fantastic DIY ideas to help you achieve the wedding of your dreams.

    Summer flower favourites

    Muck into some quick garden DIY, by decorating your backyard with some of summer's most vibrant flowers.

    Pretty dahlias, elegant jasmines, classic roses, sophisticated lillies and fun hydrangeas are just some wedding flowers that are in season.

    Why not get a little creative and place your flowers in hanging baskets around the marquee?

    Light up your summer soiree

    Fairy lights are a hot favourite for weddings - it's the perfect way to light up your garden!

    Show off some creative flair by hanging small colourful mason jars from strong tree branches, with tealight candles inside.

    You can also use this idea as a table centrepiece, with tiny bouquets of flowers surrounding the mason jar.

    Cool off station

    One idea that may be handy for summer weddings is that of a 'cool off station'!

    Set up a small table and add some sun essentials such as small packets of sunscreen, paper parasols, jugs of ice water with strawberries, aloe vera after-sun spray and other items to keep guests cool and comfortable.
