With the warmer months rolling in, we all want to make the most of the sunshine. Outdoor weddings get a reputation as being particularly difficult to pull off, but there are so many simple ways to create an endlessly stylish wedding right in the middle of nature. From prospective venues to our favourite place settings, we’ve collected some stunning inspiration to add to your dream wedding plans.
There’s something really aesthetically pleasing about furniture in a forest, and the setting definitely lends itself to creating a truly magical day. Being surrounded by trees definitely has its advantages, from draping canopies to hanging fairy lights there are endless possibilities when using your surroundings. Clean up the forest floor a little for the aisle with vintage patterned rugs, which are endlessly chic and aren’t as time-consuming to put down as a wooden floor. To feel like a princess in this fairytale setting, Dip Hem Dresses are perfect for wedding guests looking to cut a classic silhouette with a modern twist. Little touches, like adding sheepskins to the seating or having candle centrepieces, will bring this venue together and make it a night to remember.
For a carefree and joyous vibe, the beach is a perfect location for hosting your big day. The beach wedding setting everyone always imagines is a flower archway in front of the ocean. If you’re looking for your pictures to stand out, additions like a wavy ‘organic’ aisle that follows the sand, monochrome floral arrangements, or linen drapes will make all the difference. To keep within the neutral palette of a beach setting, Champagne & Nude Bridesmaid Dresses are a stunning option and will ensure everyone keeps their eyes on the bride. Add a dugout firepit and cushioned seating to create a stylish and cosy area for your guests to relax in. We love the idea of ending a beach wedding by firelight under the stars.
There’s nothing more classically romantic than wedding pictures in front of a lake, and we love this timeless setting for exchanging vows. Factor in a wooden dock or railings, and this wedding venue gives endless options for a ‘Bridgerton’ era feel. A classic wedding setting deserves an elegant bride too and we think a Midi Wedding Dress is the perfect choice to create a chic silhouette. You could even go a step further and have the wedding reception on a boat. From intimate wood-panelled barges with intimate seating to sleek yachts with a dancefloor on deck, there’s so many options for taking your wedding to the water.
The possibilities are limitless when it comes to an empty green space, from gardens to fields, a timeless countryside wedding brings plenty of charm to the day. We’re loving outdoor dining tables in rustic wood and wildflower table settings can bring an organic feel to the design. A super chic option for table settings or hanging decorations can be to upcycle glass bottles to use as vases, you can also add a ribbon in your chosen palette to the neck to tie this into the rest of the decor. You could add a minimal white marquee for a more formal feel or go with hay bale seating for a more country aesthetic. We think this authentic setting is perfect to contrast with a luxe Embellished Wedding Dress, to bring a little glam and ensure all eyes are on you all day.
