Outdoor Wedding Ceremony Decorations
The great outdoors is undoubtedly the largest and blankest canvas available when planning your special day. With some careful preparation and the correct features, an out of doors wedding ceremony can truly reflect your style, whether this be vintage, traditional or contemporary.
Although outdoor services differ greatly, one feature which must always be planned is lighting. Lighting is a fundamental element of any occasion and if neglected can jeopardise the photography as well as health and safety. This extra consideration needn’t pose as another cost however, as outdoor lighting can be simultaneously decorative, functional and very economically friendly.
Electronic lights come in a vast array of colours to tie in with your scheme and look stunning wrapped around trees as well as instantly sprucing up outdoor furniture. Not to mention that this arrangement is much more time effective and lower in cost than a floral display. Electric lighting is also safer than fire-lights, making them an ideal choice for any outdoor wedding with children.
If, however, you wish to preserve and enhance the natural theme, fire lighting is another flexible and potentially low cost choice. Surrounding a candle in glass is the safest option for natural lighting, which can easily be customised.
A simple jar holding a single tea light is an easy and effective form of lighting for your outdoor wedding reception. The glass can be used to match your colour pallet, as well as personalised for or by your friend and family. Wedding guests often enjoy providing a small contribution and individual hand painted lights will make your big day bespoke to you.
An outdoor wedding lends itself to quirky personalisation. A modern twist on a name card and bag of sugared almonds for the guests could be a pair of flip flops (for those who underestimate the difficulty in walking in smart shoes on the grass), fans or blankets depending on the weather, or even a named can of insect repellent.
Whatever your style and whatever your budget, an outdoor wedding is a wonderful template to create your unforgettable dream day.
