Creative Ideas For A Garden Themed Wedding

Spring and summer are the times when most outdoor weddings take place. (Unless, of course, you live in an area where it's warm all of the time.) A very beautiful and romantic setting for an outdoor wedding is in a garden full of gorgeous blooms. Our online wedding decoration store has lots of wonderful accessories for this type of ceremony and reception, and in today's blog, WhereBridesGo.com has featured a few ideas for how to incorporate them. 


An Enchanted Garden
A regular garden is awe-inspiring enough on its own to host a romantic wedding, but adding a few fantastic elements can turn an average garden into an enchanted one straight out of a fairy tale. 

Consider having the wedding ceremony early enough that it's still light outside to enjoy the garden's beauty, but late enough that as soon as the sun goes down the reception is enveloped in ethereal twinkle lights and lanterns filled with candles. 


Lots of natural elements are wonderful to decorate with. You can use tree branches in vases, or slices of tree trunks as centerpiece bases. Moss adds excellent color and texture to your decor, and of course, beautiful blooms woven into everything fits in perfectly. Imagine what you might see in a fairy garden and then arrange it on a bigger scale for your own celebration. 

A plainly iced cake, or possibly a naked cake, with a gorgeous wedding cake top can be embellished with real flowers. For favors, send your guests home with something to grow, like a potted succulent or flower seeds. Make a magical exit amid a cloud of bubbles blown by your wedding guests. 
    


An Afternoon Tea 
Gardens are lovely places for afternoon tea, and if you have your wedding earlier in the day, you can host a brunch before the ceremony or a variety of tea sandwiches & different teas among the flowers afterward. Lots of decor may not be necessary since the garden is stunning on its own, but a few additional floral elements here and there can add that extra special touch. 


Gardens also host some lovely wildlife, such as birds, bees, and butterflies. These are fun elements to add into your wedding decorations, and a perfect reason to use cute phrases like "Love is in the air," "Lovebirds," and "Meant to 'Bee'." Ceremony programs that double as fans can help to keep guests cool on the warmest of days. A wooden garden bench used as a wedding guest book alternative makes a wonderful decoration for the newlyweds' home after the wedding.    


WhereBridesGo.com can help you to create the most beautiful garden wedding, and there are also all kinds of other themed items to find when you visit our online wedding accessory store if you have something else in mind for your special day. Visit our website and find the inspiration to begin dreaming up your own perfect wedding.

Military Weddings

You've decided to have a military wedding—complete with all the pomp and circumstance such a formal affair entails. Here some tips on planning the wedding of your dreams that still conforms to longstanding military tradition and protocol.

Wedding Attire
The main difference between a military wedding and a civilian wedding is that the bride and/or groom will be in uniform. An officer or enlisted personnel in the bridal party wears uniforms that comply with the formality of the wedding and seasonal uniform regulations. For commissioned officers, the evening or mess dress uniform is equivalent to the civilian black tie. Commissioned officers who elect to wear a sword or saber with their uniform should stand to the left of the bride so as to protect her from the blade.

For enlisted personnel, dress blues or Army greens should be worn. Remember, never wear a boutonnière with a military uniform. Military ribbons or medals are the only adornments permitted on the uniform.
