Whether you have a green thumb or simply love the rustic charm that nature provides, a garden wedding is a great way to begin your new life with your spouse. There are endless opportunities for beautiful decor with a rustic twist. Check out these party planning ideas for a garden wedding:
Floral cake topper
Forget the traditional cake topper of a bride and groom. Instead, replace it with a full arrangement of your favorite blooms. They bring a splash of color and texture to your cake and will help pull your floral theme together.
A basket of flip-flops
If you’ve ever worn heels in the grass, you know how tricky it can be to walk. So if you’re hosting an outdoor garden wedding, be kind to your female guests by offering a basket of flip-flops that can be worn during the ceremony or reception. Your guests will be glad they have alternative footwear. You could also provide them with heel covers, which slip over the bottom of the shoe to make it easy to stand on grassy terrain.
Give your guests the gift of shade for your wedding favor. Set sunglasses out on a table before the ceremony with a sign encouraging guests to help themselves. This way, they’ll be able to witness you exchanging vows, even if it’s particularly sunny outside. And they can take the glasses home with them!
