Top 5 Outdoor Wedding Decor Ideas To Nail Your D-Day
If you’re planning to get hitched at the height of the wedding season, chances are that you may choose an outdoor venue. There are a lot of advantages to choosing to have your ceremony outside. For instance, you get more space. In addition, it’s less expensive. Also most importantly – you have a ton of wedding decor options!
Here are a few of our top wedding decor ideas
#1. Lights! Camera! Action! For an Outdoor Wedding
Lighting is an important part of any wedding event. After all, how else are you going to capture the happiest moments of your life on film? It’s important to hire someone who specializes in wedding outdoor photography. Likewise, it’s also essential to ensure that the lighting at the venue is satisfactory.
However, lighting doesn’t necessarily have to be purely pragmatic. There are plenty of pretty and unusual ways to integrate it into your wedding decor. From sweeping strings of fairy lights to stunning floating lamps – there are a ton of options to choose from.
#2. Some Flower Power Wedding Decor
Any wedding planner worth their salt will tell you that flowers are an integral part of desi wedding decors. From the garlands we wrap around our beloved’s neck to the string of blooms the bride wears in her hair – they are a necessity and a luxury.
So, if you’re planning an outdoor wedding ceremony, incorporate flowers into your scheme. It is an easy and beautiful way to spice up your wedding decor. Besides you have tons of options of every hue and size to choose from. If you’re traditional, you can stick with the time-honored rose. If you’re looking for something quirkier, daisies or even sunflowers add a charming touch. All you need to do is find a good florist and get creative!
#3. Take A Seat
Not all desi weddings go on for hours. However, most events are quite long and require seating for guests. You can include your seats too into your wedding decor. Choose an option other than the standard plastic/metal chair. Bring in huge floor cushions and bolsters for guests to rest against. Add benches and stools to the mix. Spread fluffy rugs on the ground for a picnic feel – the possibilities are endless. At the very least, you can add a few cushions to your staid chairs to add a splash of color (and an ounce of comfort!) to the proceedings.
#4. Fabricating A Theme into the Wedding Decor
Speaking of adding some color to the landscape – have you considered using fabric as a decorating device? Instead of buying an expensive backdrop for the evening, you can purchase some inexpensive yet beautiful fabric and hang swatches of it together. You will be able to customize the look of the venue by this. In addition, you’ll be able to say that your wedding decor was entirely unique!
#5. Opening The Quirk Box
Not all outdoor wedding decor has to be stately and graceful. Sometimes quirky and eclectic elements suit the occasion too. You can add a personal touch to the event by incorporating elements like colorful parasols or umbrellas, fans, signs and other photo-worthy props.
What’s even better is if these items are useful to the guests in some way. Monsoon wedding? Have a multi-colored umbrella. Your friends and family will be happy to contribute their services and stay dry at the same time. Ingenious!
Feel free to explore, experiment and just have fun. Remember, this is YOUR day, and you have the right to make sure it looks perfect. Start your brand new journey together on a good note, and head off into the sunset with smiles on your faces.
