With summer in full swing, outdoor weddings are one of the top trends in the recent years and a garden themed wedding is without question one of the best options. Gardens full of sprawling flowers provide a perfect place for weddings and couples grab this opportunity while planning their once in a life time day. If you are one of them and decided to have a garden wedding, just keep reading. Whether you arrange your own garden or hire a bigger place, nature will be the best backdrop for such a special occasion. In order to make things a bit easier, we have collected the best garden wedding ideas for your ceremony.
Garden Ceremony Arches
Whether it is dramatic and bold or very simple, the arch or backdrop you use for a garden setting provides the perfect place for your ceremony. Mother Nature has decorated the rest of your surroundings, so all you need to focus on is the backdrop where the two of you will tie the knot.
The easiest and most practical DIY projects are ones that help your guests navigate your wedding. Whether it’s directing them to all the different events, letting them know the sparkler sendoff time, or a creative seating chart display, knowledge is power at a wedding and the more the guests can be informed, the easier it is on you and them.
The best part about planning your wedding reception in a garden setting is the variety of ways your tables can be arranged. You may have to work around a tree here and there, place the cake under a gazebo, or use the trees to hang lights for dancing.
Drink & Food Serving
If you are planning an outdoor wedding, chances are it will be warmer and your guests are going to be thirsty! Set up several different stations with a variety of drinks: Fruit infused water, containers filled with lemonade or tea, and even beer barrows!
Floral Wedding Cakes
The best cakes are ones that don’t look too formal if your wedding is in a garden setting. Casual and relaxed with fresh flowers placed in all the right spots help add to your theme.
