Tips for Outdoor Wedding Themes and Décor

outdoor weddingOne of the biggest and most refreshing trends to hit weddings in recent years is the outdoor picnic-style wedding. Whether you hold your event in a garden, a lush backyard, a park or on the beach, the common denominator is the great outdoors. While the decor and festivities can be as chic as you wish, an outdoor wedding also lends itself to more casual touches. Consider these outdoor wedding theme and style ideas as you plan your spring, summer, or early autumn wedding:

Country Charm

The casual warmth of a country setting just might be perfect for your wedding. Consider renting some farmland for your event, or reserve space in a wooded local park. A picnic setting can be decorated however you wish, and a rustic, natural setting can be the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos as well. You can also keep it chic with refined wedding dresses and bouquets for the wedding party if you wish.

Head West

Take the country theme up a few notches by adding Western and cowboy elements to your theme and decor. An open barn can be the perfect setting for your reception, or at the very least, use barn wood accents in your decor. Go all the way with this theme by encouraging guests to wear cowboy boots, denim and Stetson hats.

Bohemian Chic

Make your wedding an ultra-casual and eclectic event by creating a Bohemian style wedding theme. Sun dresses and sandals are perfect for the ladies, and the decor can borrow from antique stores and thrift shops. Accent the event with flower tiaras, simple centerpieces and even a craft table where guests can make their own flower accessories.

Say it with Wildflowers

While roses and lilies are beautiful, many couples are opting for simple, elegant wildflower arrangements as a refreshing alternative for their ceremony and reception flowers. Daisies, asters, snapdragons, sunflowers and tea roses can be mixed together to perfectly accent your outdoor celebration. Pair them with country canning jars, clear iced tea pitchers or sleek, simple vases.

Outdoor weddings are all the rage for 2015, and it’s easy to see why. With so many decor and theme options ranging from chic to eclectic, there’s something for every taste and style. Holding your wedding in a garden, park or beach is also more affordable than renting a banquet hall.
