Style Guide to an Opulent Outdoor Wedding


Summer vibes mean soaking up every moment of the great outdoors! And when it comes to creating a fairytale wedding, nature has everything you could want for your perfect day. Blissful at the beach, gorgeous in the garden, or a magical mountain set-up, we wouldn’t mind saying I Do in any of these spots. For any of our brides looking for some idyllic inspo, start daydreaming about these outdoor wedding themes!

Did someone say al fresco! Dining outdoors is as good as it gets, and when you have gorgeous exposed wood to work with, even better! Add in strung lights and lush flowers and we’re practically swooning for this distressed wooden dinner décor.

Hosting your dinner and reception outside opens up a whole new world of aesthetics! Set amongst the trees in a woodsy garden or a backyard you can work with so many of the elements around you, like the earthy tan tones and lush greenery.  It’s easy to see why so many brides are going garden party chic for their big day! 

A tented reception aka the magical solution to planning ahead for your outdoor festivities!  Aside from being stunning and elegant, you’re all set if a little unexpected rain shower shows up. With a covered space that still lets you breathe in the fresh air, you have the best of both worlds. Hang gorgeous chandeliers or swirls of flowery wreaths for a dainty effect, or a billowy draping tent that will leave your guests in awe! We love a good monochrome color scheme to match your tent and your tablescapes too!

Get ready to glow with a flutter of flickering lights in a dreamy candlelit night. Picture dinner and dancing out by the pool surrounded by candles glimmering off the water. Spell out your initials or a giant heart in the grass with tall pillar candles. And for our beachy brides, amp up the romantic ambiance with votive candles down the sandy aisle!

If you’re perched up high with incredible 360 mountain views, there’s nothing to see but wide open space and the happy couple! And what better way to cheers your marriage than blue skies, peaking trees, and the floating clouds behind you. With such serene scenery in the background, anything from a simple to an elaborate flowery arch will do. For a more intimate gathering we’re crazy for a banquet style table featuring linens and flower arrangements in a bold pop of color!
