Garden weddings are always so refreshing because of the lush breathing space available which couples usually fill with abundant flowers and greenery. But what if you’ve decided to have an intimate wedding, would doing it in a big open space still be an option? Through the use of color motifs, decorations, floral arrangements, and placements of tables and chairs, you can definitely make a bigger space work for a cozier event! Here are a few weddings we’ve rounded up for your inspiration.
Flowers in Classic Pinks and Peaches
How do you make an open, green space even more light and bright? Go for classic hues like pink and peach to add extra color to your venue. You can’t go wrong with such timeless colors for floral arrangements even up to the entourage’s attire!
Saying I Do Under A Tree
Take advantage of the natural surroundings by setting up your ceremony space under the shade of a tree just like in this wedding! Though the venue is far wider, the chairs were placed in such a way to bring focus to where the couple said I Do. What a beautiful focal point it is especially when lanterns are lit at night!
A Cozy Backyard with a Contrast of Black and Greenery
Here’s another idea to bring more contrast to the greens and browns of outdoor spaces! Don’t be afraid to go for the color black. This shade is elegant, and quite modern for a wedding! Black also stands out amongst the greenery. Another tip we can get from this wedding is the parallel placement of banquet tables along each side of the aisle. This really is suitable for an intimate event with your nearest and dearest. It’s cozy and gives a great view of your dance floor!
Hues of Plum and Purple
Just because you have a smaller event, it doesn’t mean you can’t fill your space with an abundance of flowers. Feel free to go big and colorful with your floral arrangements to make either a garden venue or your own backyard stand out, and of course, less bare! Incorporating flowers in the table styling and adding arches around your space will certainly look amazing in photos.
Lush Garden Wedding with a Livestream
Not everyone will get the opportunity to have a front row seat at your wedding, especially if you have relatives abroad, so why not set up an area where they can appear on video call, too? This way, it will feel like your virtual guests are still part of the ceremony! And if you’d like to keep your ceremony space simple and minimalist, you can always choose a white motif. Then, let the beautiful greenery be the star!
Ceremony Chairs and Reception Tables Set for Less than 30 Guests
Here’s how you can use your garden venue as both your ceremony and reception area. When you have a smaller guest count, you can use half of the space for your ceremony, while you can utilize the other half for your reception tables. This way, you can maximize the entire space and still have it feel comfy yet exclusive enough for your party!
One Table Reserved for Your Nearest and Dearest
To make your venue feel extra special for your wedding, why not just opt to have one table in the middle of a vast space? If you prefer having an immediate family-only event, you can opt to set just one table and dine under the stars!
A Garden Decorated with DIY Details
If you’re a couple who loves working on D.I.Y crafts and pieces, then you can also personalize your garden or outdoor wedding with your own creative touch. In this wedding, the couple made their own decorations and even upcycled them as home décor! Another idea we can get from this wedding is how they used the wide space by keeping the tables and chairs a little farther apart and leaving a big area for their program and the LED screen! After all, when you have a vast outdoor area, why not make use of it the fullest?
