Garden weddings are romantic, bright and intimate. It’s not a surprise that next to beach weddings, many brides also choose to hold their big day in this location. It’s very much in demand in the spring and early summer when it’s filled with luscious colors of pastels and fragrant blooms. If you and your groom decide to go for a garden wedding event, here are some fantastic ideas to use.
Colors all around
The garden is already filled with so many colors—green, brown, pink, orange, yellow and so on. For your wedding, you can choose a combination of pastel shades like lilac and baby blue or mint green and lavender. You may also pair a bright color with an earthy shade such as brown and tangerine.
The garden wedding is already a theme in itself but if you want to make planning easier, you can choose a more specific theme. Examples are bird twigs, butterfly, dragonflies, herbs, apples, cherry blossoms, orchids, and many more. Anything that pertains to nature, flowers, plants and garden can be used as a central theme for this occasion.
Photographs serve as timeless mementos of grand occasions like weddings. It’s only right that you’re able to get the right snapshots for this special day. Since a garden wedding is as dramatic as it is jovial, it would be nice to have vintage-style wedding photography. This means that the photos can either be processed in black and white or sepia tones. Either way, there would be dramatic nostalgia to accompany the photos. Priceless moments can also be captured using antique photography equipment.
Don’t ever make the mistake of using fake flower blooms for your garden wedding. The main reason why you’re holding it here is for you and all your guests to bask in the wonderful gifts of nature. It would be offensive to Mother Nature if you decorate the tables and venue with superficial flowers. What you should do instead is not only to use fresh flowers for decorating the site but also for accessorizing your outfit and that of your wedding party. Wear flower wreaths on your heads or use fresh flower bracelets.
Setting the garden scene doesn’t have to be too much of a difficult task. As you can see, it’s already very beautiful. You can prep it up a little further by hanging a cluster of paper lanterns from the trees or dressing up the tent pole with twinkling lights. Tabletop lanterns that double as table centerpiece are also a great idea. Tie ribbons all around and let these colorful items flutter in the breeze.
There are plenty of delightful favors you can use for your garden wedding. These include spring garden collection watering can candles, two peas in a pod candle in ivy print gift box, topiary photo holder/place card holder, the perfect pair refrigerator magnet in retro kitchen gift box, the perfect pair pear timer in wooden gift box, and swaying calla lily pearlescent place card/ photo frame.
