Instances of Outside Wedding Decoration Ideas

Backyard Wedding

  • Use huge white canopy tents
  • In these tents, have a string of white lights to result in a soft glow at night
  • Adorn the tent polls with wedding flowers and colors
  • Rent a dance floor
  • In case wind is a problem, avoid using candles

Woods Wedding

  • Wedding dresses are usually white. It is essential to protect these from grass stains, dirt, or any other substances on the ground. So, use a good runner on the aisle. These are made up of different fabrics and can match any color scheme
  • Make bouquets from local wildflowers
  • The centerpieces may be colorful arrangements of wildflowers
  • After the Sun sets, hang white lights from the trees for a romantic and soft glow. For more light, add some white lanterns

Beach Wedding

  • Create an aisle in the following manner. Rent short columns. Place a light and airy ribbon or fabric from one column to another
  • Arrange white chairs for the guests to sit on
  • Select simple flowers like lilies or daisies. These should not divert the attention of the guests from the beauty of the beach
  • Taking into account the ocean breeze, do not include candles. If at all you use vases, ensure that they have heavy bottoms that do not tip over
  • A combination of beach sand and frosting is not advisable. So, do not include the traditional cake and select a different dessert
  • Take heavy glass vases and fill these with seashells from the beach. Use these either as centerpieces or as heavy objects to prevent blowing away of those objects that can be blown away by the ocean breeze
