10 Grand Garden Wedding Ideas
Embrace the beauty of nature on your big day with a breathtaking garden wedding. Get inspired by these great ideas that cover everything from the flower girl and the bride’s bouquet, to wedding ceremony backdrops and chandeliers made of greenery to suspend over the dance floor.
1. Scatter Herbs
Instead of tossing rice, have bridesmaids scatter herbs down the aisle, as BRIDES magazine suggests. Pick symbolic herbs, like mint for virtue. Gather the herbs in our Rattan Bowl.
2. A Classic Bouquet
A white peony bouquet is perfect for a classic bride. Get the look with this white peony bouquet, a few large white peony stems, and mix in a few stems of delicate lily of the valley.
3. An Oversize Bouquet
For a less traditional bouquet that’s equally stunning, play up the size and texture. Using some basic florist supplies, recreate this monochromatic green arrangement with a Fern Bush, Green Millet Branches, and this Asparagus Fern Garland.
4. Garden Altar
For your garden wedding ceremony, wrap flowering vines around an arch or canopy for a gorgeous altar. Our Passion Flower Garland, Cream & Lilac Wisteria Garlands, and Magnolia Leaf Garland with Flowers, are great picks.
5. A Magical Touch
Create an enchanting scene at your garden wedding ceremony by suspending our Round White Linen Lanterns from trees. Echo the look on your tablescapes with shimmering vases and white tea light and votive candles placed in glass tea light holders.
6. Lawn Cocktails
Lay out a mix of green and blue jute rugs on the lawn with woven poufs and printed cotton pillows to create a fresh and relaxed setting for cocktail hour.
7. Soft Touch
Wow your guests at the reception dinner with a pretty tablescape: a pillowy, baby’s breath garland on a table runner, patterned napkins, and wedding vases and glass candleholders with delicately etched detailing, like these Taper Candle Cut Squares Glass Hurricanes and Cut Glass Votive Holders.
8. Metallic Vases
Flower arrangements pop when placed in shiny, polished brass vases. Fern leaves in the peony and lisianthus centerpieces and leaf printed chargers play up the garden theme.
9. An Indoor Garden
It’s easy to create the garden wedding theme inside when you don’t have an outdoor venue. Start with a flower wall for the ceremony and line the aisle with green flower arrangements of viburnum in zinc urns and Bells of Ireland in large black urns.
10. Floral Chandeliers
For a reception tent or for the dance floor, use a mix of rosemary garlands accented with eucalyptus or other greenery to create these chandeliers.
