Getting married outdoors in the fresh air is an excellent idea for nature-lovers and those alike. Nature provides tons of beauty, and most of your work is already done for you. However, adding personal touches to your wedding décor can only make your big day that much more special. No matter what time of year you plan to be wedded, outdoor wedding decorations can be beautiful additions to your perfect day.
Springtime is by far the most popular time of year to get married, and with good reason. Flowers are in bloom, everything is green, and the air is warm with a slight breeze. For a beautiful centerpiece on your wedding reception table, opt for bowl of water filled with flower and candles. This is a very easily assembled centerpiece, and you can use candles shaped like flowers to keep with a floral theme. You may also want to consider butterfly or fruit shaped candles in shades of pastel.
The peak of growth – summertime. Summer is a lush season thanks to plenty of sunshine and adequate rainfall turning the woods into hearty subtropical jungles. Bring color to your summertime wedding by choosing rich, bold colors for eye-popping wedding decorations. Bright oranges, yellows, blues, reds, and greens are all popular summertime colors. It is a time to lighten up and have fun, and your wedding décor should represent this. Butterflies, ladybugs, and dragonflies make great themes for wedding favors in the form of cookie cutters, candles, card holders, and small boxes filled with candy. Or for a beach feel, fill bowls with sand and colorful seashells.
An outdoor fall wedding is a unique event. Many people look past the beauty in fall, choosing another season to be wedded in. However, the décor for a fall wedding can be very beautiful. Of course, the harvest theme is an attractive option for your fall wedding. Decorate reception tables with pinecones, cornucopias, leaves, dried gourds, dried corn, and maybe even a scarecrow.
Thinking about December or January for your outdoor wedding? Due to dropping temperatures, consider holding a short ceremony outdoors and holding your reception indoors. Ice sculptures make lovely winter wedding decorations. Trim your reception tables with greenery and white holiday lights. As with other seasons, water bowls with floating candles create a cozy, romantic feel that is warm when the weather is cold. For natural foliage, snap branches off trees, paint white and stick in vases with fake birds attached. Stunning!
