Garden wedding ideas

If you have the use of a large garden for your reception then this set up is perfect for a summer wedding. On hot summer days, you will need to provide sun canopies for your guests to find a little shade. If there is a rain shower, then you will not need to worry! You can really make the most of flowers at a home garden wedding, mostly the kind growing for free in your backyard!

Outdoor wedding decor

Weddings at home can be small, intimate gatherings of close friends and family. Other times they take on a life of their own and you find you have a large crowd to seat! Be sure you plan enough chairs for all your guests and for simple decor, brighten up the aisles with fresh flowers and petals.

Backyard wedding reception

This picture shows you just how stunning a backyard wedding can be! For me, it is the flowers that make it so special. This bride was lucky, she had a stunning garden with flower borders as her backdrop. The outdoor reception area is divided off with simple white fabric and then given a real lift with the addition of tall floral arrangements. The height of the arrangements mean that the whole area is filled with color.

If you had a large number of guests to seat for your wedding, you will also need to plan the reception seating well. This is an example of a more traditional outside reception. Chair covers give a luxury feel to the decor and make sure the color combinations work well.
