Plan the design
To avoid problems later, and to save as much money as possible, it is very important to plan the design of the garden for the wedding. In this first step, it is necessary to decide where the vehicles will be parked, where the area that will perform the dining room will be, where the entrance to the party area, and so on.
Think that your guests should enjoy, be entertained, and should also be able to move normally; that is, you must avoid narrow aisles, put too many things in one place, and above all, place the parking area as far as possible from where the event is going to be held.
Arc, yes or no?
You may want to put a bow. Bows are very common in wedding celebrations, but … what type to choose? The ones in the image above are made with natural climbing plants, which can remind you of this day for years; but if you just want to have it one day, you can use something like this:
Undoubtedly this is much easier to do, but depending on the material of its structure it may only serve you for a day or remain standing for a long time. If you are worried about the budget, I recommend you get an economic bow, of about € 25, like this one that they sell in amazon, and you can even get a cheaper one still with iron rods that you will find in any hardware store for a price of 2 to € 5 or so. Then you decorate them with artificial climbing plants, and that ‘s it.
Pay special attention to details
People love to feel loved, that ‘s why the details are so important, and more on special occasions. For example, in the chairs of the bride and groom you can put a container with flowers, and in the rest ties made with white ribbons that carry a card with a message especially for people who will sit in each of the chairs.
To make it more fun, instead of hanging the personalized cards, you can put them in a container, and have the guests take one after the banquet.
Choose the color palette carefully
Celebrating the wedding in the garden is a magnificent idea since it is you who is in charge of choosing … everything, including the color palette. But you have to be careful with this because each and every one of them must combine and make space a cozy place.
Being outdoors, it is highly recommended to look at the colors that are around, and based on this, choose napkins, tablecloths, bows, flowers, bouquet, or even handkerchiefs.
Get a tent
Although your budget is tight, it never hurts to buy a tent, either rented or purchased. Why? Because it can be salvation if it rains unexpectedly, or if the sun turns out to be annoying, or if suddenly the wind blows hard. In addition, it acts as a social point 😉.
Get natural flowers from your garden
Since you are going to celebrate your wedding in the garden, it is very interesting to take advantage of the flowers that it gives you in the decoration of it. Of course, you must choose what type of flowers you will have: if they are tulips, daffodils or hyacinths , you should plant the bulbs in autumn so that they are ready in spring; but if you are looking for zinnias, carnations, or rose bushes, you will have to buy seeds, or plants in the case of the latter, in spring and so you will have flowers in summer.
For an autumn wedding, opt for chrysanthemums, anemones or blue sage.
I hope these tips are useful and you can enjoy a dream wedding 🙂.
