Bringing The Outdoors In – Theme Wedding Ideas

April 17, 2015 at 1:51 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , )

Just because your wedding reception includes a roof and four walls doesn’t mean you can’t find elements of the outdoors – both big and small – to make it feel like you’re celebrating the day away with Mother Nature. No need for a green thumb here – your guests will delight in touches of the beauty of nature without the bugs!

Upon entering the reception, direct your guests to their seats with sweet succulents adorned with flags. These readily available mini greenery can also double as an easy-to-carry and hard to forget wedding favor.

Barn Wood Signage
Give your seat at the head of the table a rustic touch with hand-painted signs touting your new titles made from old barn wood.

Try the next best thing to having live trees at your reception with fresh baby’s breath atop a slab of wood. This makes for an ultra-affordable centerpiece, especially if you or a family member has a tree that’s willing to part with a few branches.

If you’ve only got larger pieces to work with, these discs make perfect cake stands and displays for desserts, too!

Or, literally marry two of these ideas together for your cake.

Nature isn’t just limited to things that are grown. Contact a local beekeeper or vineyard and send your guests home with local honey or wine.

We’d love to hear your ideas! Please share.
