Outdoor weddings are still buzzing this summer and fall. Backyards, & open fields, are the perfect backdrop for a laid back country chic wedding. To stay dry or out of the sun, tents, or barns on the property are the perfect option for holding the dinner and reception. Outdoor weddings are the perfect backdrop that offers a clean slate to create your “own” wedding style. Every couple wants to showcase who they are to their family and friends by adding their own special touches and details.
A few styles that work so well for outdoor weddings:
Romantic & whimsical settings are perfect for garden parties and afternoon tea. If weather permits dinning al fresco is a wonderful choice to set the mood. Look for Peonies, and hydrangeas, they are always a favorite among brides. Add a touch of gold to your decor whether it be for your charger plates or your flatware it’s sure to catch everyone’s eye and shouts “Elegant”
Casual chic is perfect for you to showcase your creative side. Have your guests seated at long barn board tables adorned with clusters of wildflowers. This screams rustic charm. Can’t find the barn board table tops, have a local woodcarver make you individual wooden placemats. Adding herbs in the decor is another great addition to your table settings. A sprig of rosemary on your napkins is simple yet so effective for that personal touch.
Be creative when it comes to your food presentations. This is where choosing a great caterer will make all the difference. They will be able to provide you will plenty of ideas or use the ones you already have.
Still love the idea of cupcakes? Switch things up with a “Cupcake Bar” where guests will create their own cupcakes with a variety of frostings and toppings to choose from.
Desserts this summer are simple and refined all while remaining beautiful. Forget all the layers upon layers of frosting. Try showcasing your cake by using fresh fruit, flowers or powdered sugar. Better yet, make your cake a family affair and create your own together for your own special touch.
