There’s something so gorgeous and romantic about a garden setting. From charming inspirations from The Secret Garden to lovely watercolor dreams of an English garden, these are a few garden wedding ideas to make your big day become a reality.
1. A Pretty Watercolor Invitation Suite
Set the tone with a watercolor invitation suite in muted blush and green tones.
2. Cozy Seats for the Mr. and Mrs.
To keep the event intimate, the bride and groom can be seated among friends and family instead of at their own sweetheart table.
3. Delicate Sweets
Hand-painted macarons are a perfectly delicious (and pretty) addition to the sweets table!
A wedding cake doesn’t need to be five tiers to be amazing. Real blooms and ombré ruffles transformed this wedding cake into a reflection of the venue’s natural beauty.
4. A Flower Adorned Canopy
A flower and fabric adorned canopy frames the lush garden backdrop for the ceremony and creates an amazing spot for photos of the couple.
5. Signature Drinks
Mix up a unique signature drink to serve your guests as they arrive for cocktail hour! This grapefruit cocktail garnished with rosemary is a sublime pink that matches a garden wedding theme.
Wedding Tip: Work with your venue and ask to serve your own signature cocktails or two of your favorite drinks!
6. An English Garden Inspired Table
A soft green linen tablecloth along with Tuscan cafe chairs with a rustic whitewash finish created a classic, English garden look.
7. Elegant Place Settings
Plates with scalloped edges and stunning menus enhanced the soft, vintage feel to the table. Gold-rimmed glassware and gold flatware were the perfect finishing touch of elegance!
8. Handpicked Fresh Flowers
An eclectic mix of cream-colored containers were filled with romantic florals in shades of blush and coral to add to the whimsical outdoor ambiance.
The same hand-picked flowers were used to make the bride’s bouquet, including dusty miller, Queen Anne’s lace, and seeded eucalyptus.
9. Detailed Vintage Touches
An antique key is a beautiful, vintage touch to the groom’s boutonniere.
10. Edible Favors
Let your guests take some of those tasty desserts home! These edible favors would look fantastic as part of each place setting.
DIY Tip: Fill a clear cupcake box with a few watercolor macarons for a treat guests will love.
