If you’re planning on having an out doors wedding (which is all the rage nowadays) then you’ll want to kick it up a notch by checking out this list of uncommon and extraordinary décor ideas for a fabulous wedding under the sky.
Instead of one giant flower arrangement for each table, distribute a smattering of different sized and colored vases with mini flower displays. This gives your decorations more of a hand picked feel, as well as lends to the feeling of a lot more decorations. Tiny splashes of color incorporated throughout the tables and settings gives off a trendy kitschy vibe.
And speaking of vases, it’s really subjective what constitutes as a vase. If it holds flowers, it counts. Tea kettles, mini driftwood pieces, teacups, vintage tins, watering cans, mason jars, light bulbs, terrariums, gourds, baskets and wine glasses – the list goes on, and your imagination is the only limiting factor here.
Wine barrels can continue your outdoor rustic vibe acting as cocktail tables, cocktail bars, h’ordervessettings, the guest book section, and another surface for displaying decorations.
Free standing walls
Outdoor weddings present so many more décor options than indoor weddings. For example, you can create free standing walls for added dimension to the open space you’re working with. You can feature a backdrop covered in clocks of all different styles and sizes, or mirrors of different shapes, or flowers, or pictures all in black and white or sepia, or plates of different colors. Backdrops can be made from hanging canvas, or lattice, or pallets. Even a volleyball net can make a great free-standing backdrop. Again, your options are endless.
Instead of the traditional flower girl throwing out petals down the aisle before the entrance of the bride and groom, you can pre-arrange a swirling flower petal pattern leading to the altar. Check out here how to make a do it yourself rose petal aisle runner. And you don’t need to just stop at decorating the aisle with petals. They can be scattered everywhere to create the most photographic of breezes when the wind decides it wants to participate in your wedding.
Continuing with the outdoor theme, hay bales covered with colorful linens are a wonderfully unique alternative to traditional chair seating for the ceremony.
Old school games like corn hole, croquet, or badminton can keep the fun going for guests, as well as keep the little ones entertained with silliness.
Outdoor reception lounge
Truly wow your guests by creating an out door relaxation lounge complete with rugs, fluffy cushions, soft couches, comfy chairs, and charmingly decorated side tables. This way guests can take a cozy breather while still being able to view and participate in the reception.
The options for outdoor wedding décor are excitingly limitless, and your choice of outdoor venues is almost just as varied. For example, if you decide to have a barn wedding in Cheshire, all of the ideas on this list would combine to create a fantastically rustic and chic bohemian wedding theme. Did we just plan your wedding for you? Perhaps! No charge though!
