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.

Are You THAT Wedding Guest?

We've all been to a wedding where at least one or two of the guests got a little out of line. Whether you're in the bridal party or there as a guest, dealing with difficult guests can be incredibly frustrating. If you're going to a wedding, you'll probably try to be on your best behavior - but what if you commit one of these classic wedding guest faux pas without even trying to?  The team at WhereBridesGo.com has compiled a quick list of some of the most common (and annoying) wedding guest faux pas. Don't get caught doing one of these! 1.  Not Controlling Your Children Misbehaving children can ruin an event faster than almost anything else. As a result, it's not uncommon for brides and grooms to ask that children not attend the ceremony or reception. If you have kids that will be coming with you to the wedding (and they should only be coming with you if they were specifically invited), make sure you keep them on their best behavior. 2.  Crowding The D

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. The bride wh
