Choosing to host a garden party theme for your wedding is a genius idea on so many levels! Gardens are associated with romance, fairytales and mystical beauty – sounds like the perfect setting to say your ‘I Do’s’. With lush greenery and beautiful in season flowers, gardens are a magical setting for any wedding! Here are stunning ways to bring your garden party wedding to reality.
Utilise the natural beauty of the space. With this in mind, one of the main reasons you chose your venue is because of it’s natural beauty so don’t hide it! Choose accents to highlight the beauty of the garden while ensuring they do not take away from it. Use floral arches to achieve this at the entrance and altar of your venue. This allows people to see through the arch and take in the beauty beyond.
Set out your aisle with flowers and greenery lining your way to the altar. Stream the aisle with petals for a fairytale-esque vibe. Choose flowers which represent your colour scheme and this will bring everything together beautifully.
As your are getting married in a natural environment, you will not require too may accent decor pieces to create your theme, this will save money in your budget towards food, drinks or your dress! Tree trunk plinths work great as centre pieces and decor features with candles and are natural to the environment you are working with. Keep the theme strong with your wedding signage also – natural wood and floral elements will keep this fresh and simple.
As this is a less formal setting for your wedding, keep the tablescape open and centerpieces on the table low to allow guests to chat freely. This will ensure the relaxed environment you have created will continue as guests enjoy their meal! Use lush greenery with in season flowers in pretty colours for the table and add tealights and holders to create a beautiful setting.
As the venue is outdoors, remember lighting is important! Use streams of lighting on trees and posts to create a magical feeling after sunset. This will create an ambiance guests will find hard to forget!
Choose glowing dewy make up and a loose up-style for your hair to create a relaxed and gorgeous bridal beauty look! Use fresh flowers in your hair or a floral tiara or crown to finish the look!
Gone are the days of matching bridemaids, instead go with the current trend and have mix and match bridesmaid dresses. This will allow your girls to shine in a dress that truly suits their shape and style! Choose two or three colours from your palette and work to suit!
While this is the Caribbean, do discuss a Plan B with your wedding planner just in case of tropical weather. It is always better to have this covered while hoping it will not be required!
