The best season to pull off a stunning garden wedding would be spring or early summer. The flowers are in bloom, and you have beautiful, lush green landscaping just about everywhere. You can have the wedding right in your own backyard, or look for a traditional English style garden, a horticultural center, or a country estate home with exquisite gardens to host your event. While an outdoor wedding is always beautiful, you might want to consider renting tents to use for shelter in the event of a bit of liquid sunshine falling during your festivities.
The colors for a garden wedding are traditionally pink and green or lilac, but don’t be afraid to show a little flair for bright, beautiful colors. You can use yellow, bright orange, tiffany blue, or stick with tradition in an updated version with lime green and fuchsia. White is the perfect background for any of those colors, and it fits well with a garden theme.
The bride’s gown for a garden wedding can be a traditional gown, but look for things with floral patterned beading or embroidery. Consider a tea length gown for a less formal affair, maybe with accents in pink, green, or lilac at the waist or in the embroidery. Bridesmaids’ gowns can pull in the colors you choose, and a rich silk or organza fabric makes a very elegant look for your attendants. A traditional tuxedo is always appropriate for the men in the party, but if you are opting for a less formal look for the bride and her attendants, consider an ivory or white suit for the groom and his ushers.
Flowers for the wedding party can really go from the simple and elegant to the bold and extravagant in a garden type wedding. Because of the seasons most popular for this type of wedding, virtually any flower will be available, so go with what you know and love. If you have always dreamed of a bouquet filled with the gifts of the garden, you can have a multi-hued cascading bouquet that incorporates all of your floral favorites. To complement that look, choose one flower variety and have your attendants’ bouquets made only of that one flower. Or choose one color and have them carry a bouquet of only one color. Another option is to give them smaller versions of your own bouquet. You could choose your favorite flower in white, and have it wrapped with satin ribbon in green, white, or the color of your attendants’ gowns.
Your decorations can be a floral fantasy, and you can wow your guests with fresh flowers, silk ribbons and potted plants at every turn. Decorate tables in white linens, using accents of pink and green or lilac, then have large white flower pots full of hydrangeas, roses, or dahlias. Cover the chairs with white covers, and tie sashes around them that tie at the back with a beautiful blossoming rose or a cluster of calla lilies. Use old fashioned flower boxes filled with brightly colored pansies or impatiens to decorate a buffet table or a cake table. Use large English style pedestal vases to welcome guests as they walk in or to accent doorways or walkways. You can incorporate watering cans or lacy parasols into the scene wherever you have an empty corner.
Serve delicate food at a garden theme wedding. You will delight your guests with flavored iced teas or raspberry lemonade in tall, cool glasses. And most people will think along the lines of tea sandwiches and light salads for a garden wedding. A nice touch is to have white gloved wait staff to go from table to table with silver tea carts to offer your guests petit fours, English breakfast tea, and other bite sized pastries or chocolate dipped fruit. Another option is to have the guests remain at their tables and have silver trays of the tea sandwiches and pastries at each table.
Give your guests favors that will remind them of your beautiful outdoor wedding with personalized jars of honey or packages of Jordan almonds wrapped in tulle. You could also give each guest a small pot of pansies or miniature roses to provide a lasting memento from your special day. And for their entertainment, a string quartet or a quietly playing harp will add a nice touch of elegance.
The garden theme wedding harkens back to a time of simple, elegant affairs when ladies wore their Sunday best and gentlemen stood to help a lady with her chair. Your wedding will bring that romantic sense and timeless beauty to life with a garden theme event.
