It may be a while before we can lay out our picnic baskets and stay awhile under the sun, but those who are planning an outdoor wedding are likely in the midst of some intensive preparation. If you've got a fair-weather shindig coming up, here's a few outdoor ideas to help get your creative juices flowing.
For one, wedding cakes can be decorated in a stunning number of ways, and there's no reason to leave your crowning confection out of the picture. Decorate cakes with whimsical birds, branches and flowers to make the most of your lovely outdoor setting.
Centerpieces can be quite a catch as well, and these will lend themselves well to bouquets of fresh spring flowers. Set them up in contemporary square glass vases or pastel favor vases that guests can take home after the festivities.
Wedding favors in particular will benefit from this theme, as you can offer guests anything from plantable seed packet favors to miniature watering cans. Take a poll of each guest's favorite bloom so you know what kind of seeds to give them - the personal touch is bound to be appreciated.
