Outdoor Wedding Decoration Ideas
An outdoor wedding is great for couples who are nature lovers and for those who simply want to get away from the hurried and enclosed office spaces they spend most of their weeks in. The ceremony and the reception can be held in one area just within a few steps from each other.
Outdoor weddings are usually referred to as garden weddings and garden weddings often hint of spring and summer motifs and colors. Here are few outdoor wedding decorations ideas that you can incorporate into your wedding.
Tie designer leaf ornaments or round paper lanterns to nearby trees for an eye-catching outdoor wedding decoration. Try brighter shades like pink, blue, yellow, green and orange for paper lanterns as those colors stand out more. Floral arrangements make wonderful centerpieces. Place flowers in glass vases for a traditional look but give it personality by personalizing the glass vases with an engraved monogram or the bride and groom's names embedded on them. Need ideas?

Another option is to use decorative silver mint julep cups to hold the freshly-cut flowers. These make stunning centerpieces when clustered at the center of the reception table. Personalized mini bud vases not only make great table decorations, but can also be taken home by your guests as party favors. A group of mini palm plants, about six to eight inches in height and in no more than 1.5 inches pot base, could also make for a multi-functional centerpiece. Wrap the palm plant in organza or elegant cellophane wrapping from the pot to the middle part of the plant and tie a ribbon around the wrap and hang tag to get the party favor ready.
Use place cards that are eco-friendly. There are plenty of place cards available that have plantable seeds in their designs. These place cards serve double as outdoor wedding decorations because of their spring designs which include butterflies, flowers and flower pots. Put place cards in butterfly or flower place card holders that double as favor boxes for an economical twist.
Provide guests with a copy of the wedding program to keep them up to pace with the ceremony, or the reception program, but do so with style. Print the program on paper fans in various colors. Punch a hole through the bottom of the fan and insert a ribbon through it for a polished and classy finish.
