31 Days of Weddings-Day 23: Spring Wedding

Spring weddings bring gorgeous and bright flowers into every element, from the bouquets, to the reception centerpieces. Popular spring flowers to use are: roses, tulips, daffodils, peonies, and gerber daises, but you can incorporate any other brightly colored floral into the mix, or add touches of classic wedding flowers such as calla lilies to add some white. ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

31 Days of Weddings-Day 3: Garden Party Theme

This theme is one of my favorite “simpler” themes. It comes across a little “cutesy” as opposed to being overly sophisticated, but still fun and quaint. 

I would start by sending out invitations that have floral, or greenery on them-even butterflies help give off that garden atmosphere.ImageImage

Your ceremony site can be many options, but remember to stick with a more simple look-white chairs, simple aisle, and simple altar whether you want to lean a bit more rustic, or keep it traditional.ImageImage

This theme allows for many options for dresses. The only thing I would stay away from especially if you are having it outdoors, is a super traditional ball gown (especially satin) or any dress with a long train. Satin comes across too fancy and you will look out of place, and a really long cathedral train will just end up with grass stains all over it-not the look you want. Try something like thisImageImage

Your reception decor should stay simple-like the ceremony. Think light colors, lots of floral (more garden wildflower kind as opposed to the traditional calla lilies and roses. I think these tables and centerpieces are gorgeousImageImageImage

The cake should keep with the simple and minimalistic theme of garden party but add some garden accents: floral, butterflies, birds, etc. Keep it cute, but still bridal.ImageImage

Enjoy your simple yet pretty garden themed wedding!!
