Brides select colors based on personal taste, however, garden wedding decoration means that half of the color theme and selection work is done.
To make the shades blend with the natural surroundings, select a floral based color palette. A warm, soft yellow and pale pink combination not only imitates flowers, but also looks different from the greenery.
2. Wedding Boards

With colorful and flowery embellishments, do not forget the table settings. Beautify the dinner plates with a few guest favors, a paper doily with a menu on the top of napkins.
Throw in some candy filled tins, decoratively washed tape with a scrapbook decoration matching with the theme. Place flower vases at both sides of the table for a simple and attractive look.
You can also get creative with table numbers. Use decorative items such as frames, moss sheets and letters made from card boards for an innovative expression.
6. Printed Items

Using a coordinating collection throughout the event assists in tying different areas within a large space. However, make sure the printed pieces complement the event’s design instead of competing with it.
7. Wedding Cake

Wedding cake is the focal point at reception, but as per current trend, it needs to be enhanced with an auxiliary table set of goodies and sweets.
Setup a late-night snack table with a collection of treats which guests can munch or pack up after the party.
Donuts and brownie pops are a good choice and can easily be arranged in a little time. Add some candies for more variety and color.

Outdoor weddings present a lot of seating choices. From luxurious seating areas to sweetly decorated wings and hay bales, a seating arrangement entirely depends on your taste.
Go for mix matched furniture or ask from friends and family what they have in place. You can also visit a local farm to arrange an alternative seating area on budget.
11. Hanging Decor

The natural splendor augments the décor of outdoor weddings. Choose an area filled with trees if you can, as this not only adds attractiveness but also provides you a structure for hanging.
You may hang glass bottles, floral, crafty hanging frames and books to create a walk down memory lane effect.
Tie the items strongly using tough ropes with tree branches to make sure the items do not fall down.

Lighting is essential to a perfect wedding day. Even though, there are plenty of lighting options available indoors, you need to think out of the box for outdoors.
The set up would depend on the day light saving and the season you are getting married in. Use Festoon lighting option to light up the entire wedding space to give an industrial look.
Candles are another wonderful way to light up a space in order to create a romantic atmosphere. Place the candles inside of jars, lanterns and even tables as an additional decorative element.
