If love grows and blooms, then a garden isn’t just a pretty place to get hitched–it’s symbolic of a couple’s love for one another. The garden wedding, sometimes referred to as a botanical wedding, is becoming a very popular trend in the wedding world. It’s all about finding the perfect venue and choosing decorative elements that bring out the lush greens of vegetation. Decor commonly seen in garden weddings vary, but oftentimes, it involves terrariums housing hardy succulents, apothecary jars showcasing long-stemmed blooms, and enchanting vintage lanterns. It’s all about the “secret garden” effect. Planning a botanical wedding is to create an intimate venue space, a place that makes you feel like you and your guests are the only people in the world. It’s all about going for the Eden-effect.
In terms of a color palette, it’s all about incorporating different shades of green and getting them to pop. For a garden-inspired wedding tablescape, try using ivory or beige tablecloths to provide contrast. And really, how can you possibly have a wedding without flowers? Pink, coral, or peach floral accents add a romantic flavor to garden wedding color palettes. If you want the wedding to really photograph well, try booking a venue with stone or brick walls, and incorporate wood in your choice of decor. Remember, it’s all about blending those natural earth tones and getting them to pop with a few key accent colors.
