Here are some ideas for your very special garden wedding:
Flowers - The Garden themed wedding incorporates the plentiful new growth and flowers that are in bloom. Your wedding can include a multitude of flowers in different shapes, sizes and colors. Some of the most popular flowers and plants to include in a garden themed wedding are daisies, peonies, cala lilies, and lots of green ivy.
You can accomplish this by buying fresh flowers that are in season or using everlasting silk flowers. Create fanciful arrangements in a variety of containers from painted flowerpots to tin watering cans filled with rocks or sand. The more the better, in a garden themed wedding.
Vibrant Colors - Bring the beauty of the garden themed wedding to life with lots of vibrant colors. Find bridesmaid and attendant apparel in bright colors of pinks, purples or yellows. Both women and men can tuck pretty spring flowers into their hair or lapels. The wedding or reception hall can be draped with tables covered in lots of these same colors, pretty colored-glass candle displays and lots of flowers and greenery.
Nature - If at all possible, the garden themed wedding can be held in an actual garden. You can even set up a backyard garden with a trellis covered in flowers and greenery as the wedding altar. Invite wedding guests to enjoy the fresh open air with you as your exchange vows. Be sure to have a tent handy in case the weather doesn't cooperate.
If you can't be outside, due to the weather or allergies, it's fine to bring the outside indoors with painted wood furniture surrounded by lots of flowers and bright garden colors. You can create a sense of being outside with the sound of birds chirping and the trickling sound of fountains. Soft lighting completes the mood.
Whimsy - What many people like about garden themed weddings are that they create a little whimsy. Bring this into your wedding by adding some fantasy like garden-fairy wings on your flower-girl, lots of pastel tulle and sparkly accessories draped everywhere. You can even set up little flowerpots on the tables for guests to take home as wedding favors.
Just be as fun and whimsical with your garden themed wedding as you want to be. Your wedding guests will be talking about your special day for years to come.
A garden wedding theme is quite popular among couples that are not as traditional. Instead of having a wedding in a church, they choose to share their big day with loved ones in the great outdoors. Having a wedding ceremony in a garden can feel extremely intimate and romantic. Garden themes are generally appropriate for smaller groups and the dress code is almost always more casual. Expect to see a lot of vivid colors and beautiful flowers all around.
The only problem with a garden wedding theme is there is no way to predict the weather. To be safe, it's best to set a date for this type of wedding in the summer months, because there is a much better chance that the weather will be ideal. Chances of high winds or rain often occur during the spring or fall. There's no doubt both are beautiful times of the year to enjoy a garden wedding, but there is really no way of knowing if the weather will be nice on the big day. Just in case you do decide to have a garden wedding in the spring or fall months, make sure to have some sort of back up plan in case the weather does not hold up. Check to see if tents are available that are large enough for all of the wedding guests.
There are a variety of wedding dresses that would be perfect for a garden wedding theme. The bride can choose to either wear something long or short, just nothing too long like floor length or with a train in the back.
