Today I am delighted to share a lovely Guest Post on how to create your own very personal Outdoor Wedding from Event furniture Hire Specialists Rio Lounge.
Your wedding day is undoubtedly one of the most special days of your life, and many couples dream of celebrating their love for each other by getting married outdoors, closer to nature and in beautiful and serene surroundings.
But finding the perfect outdoor wedding venue can be a real challenge, so why not stay close to home and turn your garden into your dream wedding location?
Read on to find out how to turn this dream into a reality:
Living the dream and braving the weather!
It goes without saying that an outdoor garden wedding is a brave move in the UK, but there are plenty of ways to make it work.
Hiring a marquee ensures that you can create your own stunning venue within your garden, and if the weather is kind then you can have drinks and canapés outdoors before venturing inside the marquee for the wedding breakfast.
Marquees come in a wide range of sizes, so you can hire one that’s just right for the number of guests you expect at your wedding.
Make your venue come alive
Creating your dream outdoor wedding in your own garden means that you get to decide every detail, from flowers and lighting to the décor inside the marquee.
For the ceremony itself, try creating an aisle of white daisies and create your wedding bouquets from flowers that you’ve grown yourself.
As the evening approaches, fairy lights and lanterns in trees create a wonderfully magical and romantic ambiance.
Inside or outside the marquee, you can truly make this venue your own by hiring some fabulously luxurious sofas where your guests can relax and preserve their energy for the dance floor!
Hired furniture should match the overall style and theme of your wedding, and you can accessorize with stunning tableware and flowers for touches of colour and vibrancy.
Create memories that last a lifetime
Once you’ve chosen your photographer, make sure that they capture your outdoor wedding with plenty of garden shots, including lots of colour and contrast.
Why not create an archway of flowers at your garden gate and take photographs of each guest couple as they arrive – a wonderful way to remember how unique and special an outdoor wedding can be.
Can I get really married in my garden?
Couples are increasingly looking for alternative and unique venues to tie the knot, particularly places which are important to them.
If you want to hold your whole wedding ceremony in the garden then you will need to apply for a licence for civil weddings from your local authority.
Alternatively, you could have a legal ceremony first at a Registry Office, but then find a wedding celebrant who can design your perfect, personal wedding ceremony in the comfort and beauty of your own garden.
NOTE: In Scotland this isn’t an issue as you can marry virtually anywhere.
With some creative thinking and personal finishing touches, you can create the wedding of your dreams in your own garden, ensuring that you will give both yourselves and your guests a truly unique and unforgettable day.
