Creating an altar area is a very important aspect to a garden wedding as it provides direction and focus for your guests. Mother Nature is a huge help so remember to work WITH her when planning.
Welcome signs let your guests know they’ve found the right place and can be used as home decor after the wedding.
Incorporating greenery into and on everything is completely okay when working in a garden setting (and pretty much every other venue, too).
Your invitation will set the tone of what your guests should expect AND wear…these garden inspired invitations help drive the point home.
The key to making a garden wedding work is to add touches of fresh floral and/or greenery to things that have been brought in for the wedding. Obviously chairs aren’t normally set up row after row in the middle of the lawn, but touches of botanicals make it feel like they belong.
If your garden is blessed to have an abundance of flowers, share them…in your bouquet, for decorations, and even your invitations make it feel like you hand picked them straight from the abundance that surrounds you.
It’s okay to arrange seating a little differently when working in a garden. Don’t feel like you have to have round table after round table for seating, besides, you may have to work around a tree or a pond to fit everyone in the area and it just adds to the appeal.
Think outside the box when it comes to displaying items, whether it’s food or favors, creative displays just work in a garden setting. Old trunks stacked on top of each other, beautiful desks, vanities…they all work and the fact that they are unexpected really adds to the charm.
Adding lighting is a must, not only for safety, but for ambiance.
Round balloons look like a celebration is underway and they are easy to spot. Dress them up with some greenery and it will really make them feel like they belong.
With bouquets surrounding you in the garden, it’s a welcomed touch to think outside the box when it comes to wearing or carrying flowers and greenery.
Dressing up your cake adds to the relaxed garden vibe. Make sure to work with your florist on these flowers though, as the florist can guarantee they are pesticide free and safe to use on the cake.
