Plan A Summer Garden Wedding

Summer is the perfect time for a garden wedding.!


Save money on your floral budget by taking advantage of the season and choosing a location with lush gardens full of beautiful flowers as the backdrop for your wedding.  A word to the wise: be sure to choose a venue that has indoor bathroom facilities unless you plan to rent portable bathrooms.


Summer offers long but hot days.  Plan your garden wedding for late afternoon.  This way you avoid the heat and enjoy the late sunset.

The Logistics:

Set up for your ceremony in the most beautiful area of the garden.  Many venues will offer gardens that are groomed just for the occasion.  This will allow you to save money on your floral budget.  Place your dining area in open area but choose smaller, more intimate tables for your guests limiting 8 guests per table.  Be sure to leave room for the dance floor!  After dinner you will love dancing the night away under the stars.

Unique Ideas:

Paper Umbrellas:  One great idea is to have your bridesmaids carry beautiful floral paper umbrellas.  You can find some really beautiful, inexpensive Asian umbrellas.  Look for cherry blossom or orchid themed umbrellas.  It is a gorgeous unique twist on the traditional bouquet of flowers.

Old Fashion Icecream Station:  Hire a vender or ask your cater to operate a homemade icecream maker.  It is delicious and will be the perfect late afternoon treat for guests.  Add fresh whipped cream and strawberries and you have a memorable treat!

Table Center Pieces:  To create a great inexpensive center piece take a tall glass vase, fill it with water and seasonal fruit that matches your decor (apples, raspberries, pomegranates, et cetera).  Then add seasonal floral such as honey suckle or aranthera and arrange them in your vase for a striking display!

Table Lanterns:  Once the sun begins to set table lanterns will create a beautiful ambiance as your wedding celebration continues into the night.

Invitations:  Set the mood for your wedding long before the event with a garden inspired invitation.  Let The Classic Invitation create an invitation that will set the mood for your wedding and have your guests anticipating a beautiful garden wedding!  Send a classic invitation that your guests will cherish long after your wedding has passed.  Visit today for a free consultation.
