3 Essentials For A Wedding In The Garden

Your big day is coming, and you decided to get married in a garden – but what should you do to make it wedding-ready?

Having an outside wedding is hard to plan because you need to pay attention to many things at once. That’s why we recommend thinking thoroughly about it before committing to it.

You should always check out an area before booking the place. Try to imagine all the things you want, and picture it in that location. If you see yourself getting married there, book it as soon as possible.

After deciding on all the major things like the guest number, meals, level of involvement, and budget, it’s time to think about the decoration. Whether you’re doing this for a friend or yourself, decorating is a significant part of any wedding.

There are many things you can do to arrange the place to be wedding-ready, so let’s take a look at a few.

Love Seat

While organizing your wedding, you should always have in mind what you want your love seat to look like. Some couples decide to sit in separate chairs during the ceremony, but it’s a lot cuter to sit together in a love seat.

Furniture can be expensive, but when it’s for something this special, it’s worth it.

The best option is that, if you have a handy other-half, you can build the seat together. Besides creating an item of lovely furniture, you will get to spend more time with your partner while doing so.

Don’t freak out if something goes wrong, states that you will make mistakes, damage materials, and that’s okay. It’s part of the process. Not everything has to be perfect to be beautiful.

Choose the Theme

You need to choose the theme before buying anything – the whole decoration depends on that. There are many themes surrounding a backyard wedding. It could be a casual wedding, an elegant sit-down event, or a rustic country style.

The changes you make to the theme can affect everything else, so you must establish it early on in the planning process.

Choosing it can be stressful, and you might change your mind a lot of times, but eventually, everything will come together.

Get a Tent

Whether you like it or not, a tent is a must-have. You never know how the climate is going to be on that day, it might rain or be extremely sunny. Either way, a tent is essential.

This will help your guests feel fresh all day and night. You could rent some tents that come with lighting, that way, if you’re having a night wedding, it will be perfect for pictures.

Getting a tent will make things easier, because you can have tables assigned for each guest, and the catering service will run a lot smoother.

Final Thoughts

A garden wedding requires a lot of work and time, so you may need to hire an event planner that takes care of everything.

The most important things are getting a gazebo, deciding on the theme, and getting the furniture figured out. Then all that’s left is enjoying your big day.

On my 15th birthday, I became the designated gardener in my home.

Now at 32, I have a small garden and every day I'm out trying different plants and seeing how they grow. I grow guavas, peaches, onions, and many others. Want to know more about me? Read it here.
