Be it a romantic sans ballroom ceremony, or a cozy nature wedding, we bring you 7 perfect ideas for transforming your big day into one enchanting garden paradise!
1. Fairy Lights
Fairy lights are truly a wedding couple’s best friend when it comes to garden weddings. Not only are they stunning to look at when strung up in trees, they are also a cost-effective way to light up and decorate your venue. Talk about killing four birds with one stone!
Here is yet another inexpensive way to light up your garden celebration! Easy on your pocket and charming to boot, you can create a design, line a path or have them placed sporadically around the area to illuminate your wedding. With the candles’ gentle and flickering flames, a romantic mood is sure to be created.
3. Suspended Decorations
Suspended decorations are a great way to avoid cluttered decor that might otherwise overwhelm your guests, or take the spotlight away from you. To match your garden theme, you can use paper lanterns or stringed origami, just to name a few, which are all simple yet elegant ways to elevate your wedding. Best of all, more space can be left on the ground for your wedding guests to move around in.
4. Floral Aisle Decor
From an elaborate floral arrangement to a mason jar filled with a few flowers, there are a thousand and one ways you can dress up your ceremony aisle. Get creative with the different colors of flowers available and throw in some cloth, twine or ribbon to complement your garden theme. If you ever need inspiration, just look at these stunning examples!
5. Flower Arches
Flower arches are a definite must-have for your garden wedding. Not only do they provide a beautiful backdrop for photographs, they are also sure to impress your guests. And if you worry about your garden celebration being a little ‘too green’, this is the perfect avenue for adding some color to your wedding.
6. Organic Table Centerpieces
Floral arrangements are one of the most popular garden wedding table centerpieces, and there are no reasons why they should not be. But to make your wedding a little more special, why not consider combining fresh flowers with other natural elements like wood, leaves or paper origami? The results are sure to be refreshing and no doubt a delightful break from the norm!
7. Floral Headpieces
Floral headpieces are a sure-fire way to add delicacy to any bridal look. And with a garden wedding, what more reason do you need to wear one?
