Trends for Outdoor Weddings

outdoor weddingThe season for outdoor weddings lies ahead. With so many possibilities, selecting a theme for your outdoor wedding can feel overwhelming. You cannot go wrong, however, with the following five outdoor wedding themes, which offer fun, romance, and enough individuality to ensure your wedding day reflects you and your fiancé’s personalities.

Beach – Beach weddings are surrounded by the beauty of the scenery and require little when it comes to extra decoration. Shine a spotlight on the beauty of mother nature by keeping your wedding decor elements simple with breezy white or pastel linens, fresh white floral arrangements, and elegant centerpieces of shells or other natural elements. For a fun touch, provide your guests with flip flops so they can enjoy the sand without ruining their dress shoes.

Bohemian – For a relaxed take on the outdoor wedding. Hold a bohemian wedding in your backyard featuring laid back seating, centerpieces incorporating feathers and succulents, and lanterns lighting up the evening. From a tree, hang floral arrangements in macrame planters and empty picture frames to create fun photo opportunities for your guests. Swap your traditional veil for a woven floral crown and ask your bridesmaids to wear mismatched dresses to keep the vibe relaxed.

Rustic – Set on a ranch or a picturesque barn, rustic weddings capture the romance of the wild west. Decor elements feature cowhide seating, leather, hay bales, and antler motifs. Let your guests sip cocktails from copper mugs. Wildflowers like lupine, sunflowers, or primrose will lend a rustic feeling to floral arrangements. Also, don’t be afraid to wear a pair of cowboy boots with your wedding dress and ride down the aisle side saddle.

Afternoon Tea – A sophisticated take on the outdoor wedding, this theme mimics the British tradition of high tea. Incorporate arrangements of billowing flowers, tea candles, tea sets, and elegant linens. Stack your dessert table with pretty confections, macarons, and cakes for your guests to enjoy.

Picnic – Perfect for a wedding in the park, this theme incorporates casual, yet pretty elements to create a fun celebration. Arrangements of white and yellow daisies in woven baskets and picnic-style seating hit the perfect note. Provide plenty of outdoor games for your guests to enjoy.
