Outdoor weddings can really capture the beauty of nature on your big day. Whether your wedding is in the heart of the Midwest, or on the beach, an outdoor wedding takes a lot of careful planning. If you love the outdoors, why not have a wedding that is in your favorite outdoor area? Here are some decorating and planning ideas for your outdoor wedding.

A bouquet of locally grown flowers

Depending on your setting, locally grown flowers could be a great option for the bouquets and centerpieces. Make sure the flowers match your wedding colors or create your color palette based off of the flowers you will use. You can even have the bright blues or yellows of your flowers be the accent while everything else is neutral.

String lighting

Twinkling lights surrounding your wedding venue will make every moment feel like a fairytale. If your wedding is in a barn, hang the lights off of the ceiling beams or stuff the lights inside mason jars for a firefly effect. If your reception is outdoors, see if your venue can incorporate lights on tree branches.

An outdoor dance floor

Put those string lights to use and have them hang over an outdoor dance floor. There’s nothing more romantic than your first dance as a married couple under the stars. Dancing outside is really what the summer and spring seasons are all about

Casual seating

A big trend in outdoor weddings is offering couches or blankets for guests to sit on outside. This adds to the overall casual theme of outdoor weddings. Choose seating that matches your wedding colors so it looks put together. If your outdoor wedding has a rustic theme, try wooden benches or tree stumps for the ceremony seating.

Furry friends

If you have a pet or special furry friend in your life, you can incorporate them into your wedding too. It’s become a popular wedding trend to have animals or pets walking down the aisle. Have your dog carry the rings or ride in on a horse. If you love animals, why not have them at your wedding?

Outdoor weddings are a fun event for not just the happy couple, but for guests as well. They make families feel close in the couple’s favorite outdoor venue.
