The setting is ideal for a gorgeous wedding — the sun shining, birds singing, and flowers growing. So if you want to transform your backyard into a floral wonderland for a romantic wedding for either you or someone close to you, keep reading.
What’s more important than flowers?
The main focus of any backyard wedding is flowers. You want to pick the flowers that will look and feel amazing during the big. Choose flowers that are in full bloom at this time, such as dahlias, garden roses, and sunflowers, for a late summer wedding. These flowers come in bright and gorgeous colors, which means that they will turn your garden into a vibrant oasis. Lilies, peonies, and hydrangeas, which are all popular wedding flowers, can also be used to bring a sense of elegance to your yard.
Add some decorations
The main goal of garden wedding decor is to transform your outdoor space into a romantic oasis. And there are plenty of ways to do that . To bring a little warmth and sparkle to your yard, use candles, lanterns, and fairy lights. Another lovely idea is to add hanging floral garlands and wreaths from trees and branches. If you want to stick to natural materials and a rustic style opt for seating options such as wooden benches, rustic seats, and vintage tables.
Setting the table
Any backyard wedding must include the table setting. You want to design an exquisite tablescape that captures the splendor of your yard. To create a posh look, use antique dishes, crystal glasses, and silverware. To add a natural and romantic touch, you can also add floral centerpieces like floral arrangements or potted plants. To give your tabletop texture and color, use linen napkins and tablecloths.
Add some entertainment elements
Having fun is essential for any wedding celebration. Make sure that the music complements the atmosphere of your garden, whether you select a live band, a DJ, or a string quartet. To keep your guests entertained and involved throughout the day, you can also add additional entertainment options like picture booths, lawn games, and even a karaoke machine. The type of entertainment you’ll include into the wedding is completely up to your own preference, and the preferences of your guests.
Food and drinks
What would a garden wedding be without catering and an open bar? Again, the type of food you’ll include depends on your personal preferences and beliefs. But make sure the options are carefully selected and served in a sophisticated way. A caterer with experience in outdoor events can help you out with that. They can even use fresh plants from your garden to make a cuisine that is both seasonally and locally sourced. Consider providing special cocktails that will go well with the floral arrangements of your garden, like a lavender gin fizz or a cucumber mojito.
