I love those first few days of Spring. Everything is in bloom and everyone is just so happy to be back outside! Springtime is the perfect time for a wedding, and today I am going to show you an inspiration for a garden wedding with a sophisticated lilac & green color palette. (Maybe I still have green on the brain from St. Patrick’s Day!?)
A few things to consider when thinking about the fashion side of your wedding: make sure that your dress equals the level of formality of your wedding. For a garden wedding, I love this dress – not too formal, but completely unforgettable with the green sash and flower brooch. Seeing as though a tuxedo may be too formal for your groom and his groomsmen, try a dark suit but add in a pattern tie that pulls all of your colors together. Mix and match your bridesmaids and flower girls – no one says they need to wear the same color!
There are some wonderful details for a garden wedding below….enjoy!
Tables are set up outside, using the natural greenery as a backdrop. The flowers are done in shades of purple and are a lovely compliment to the natural decor of the garden; the white linens look crisp on a Spring day. You can use simple details to give the day a modern feeling – such as arranging the place cards through rows of limes, having candles floating in a cylinder vase of black rocks. These little touches take a traditional setting and bring an updated feel to the event.
You can have a lot of fun with the food you serve at weddings these days – it’s all in the presentation! For instance, try serving miniature crab cakes on a slice of lime for an hors d’oeuvre. Set up a candy bar along with your wedding cake – using only green candies. You could even offer celephane bags for people to fill and bring home as favors.
A Spring wedding promises a beautiful celebration of love and a lovely day in the garden!
