Why “stuff” your wedding guests inside a closed space and take them away all the fresh air and the beauty that nature has to offer them, when you can rent an open area and make your wedding reception there?
So, during the summer time applying for such a wedding seems to us the ideal idea, but in the same time you have to make sure that your guests are not disturbed by the warmth of the air and the bees and you know very well the other factors, which tend to be kind of unpleasant. Also, in the same time, there is the need of making sure that all of your wedding flower arrangements and adornments are all about shine and they are really attractive in the same time.
Flowers are essential for an open air venue, even if we’re speaking of the tiniest detail and with such a big variety from where to choose from, we sincerely think it would really be a pity not to adorn and decorate your wedding venue in tens of types of flowers, which are really attractive and have a low cost as well. A trendy accessory for adorning the wedding reception tables is a bird cage, which can be filled with flowers, fruits and “artificial” birds. Many brides choose to expose their wedding flower arrangement in a very original manner, under the format of a birdcage, which is filled with blooms. The main idea is to try finding some bird cages that are designed in a rather retro style or some of them can be vintage in shops that are specialized on such accessories.
Try to find some bird cages that look rusty or if you do not like this look, then opt for bronzed ones. Also, you can fill these with seasonal flowers, such as chrysanthemums, peonies or lilies, but make sure that the buds used are as larger as possible.
An amazing thing about the open air weddings is that they offer you a big number of possibilities and you can play with lots of themes, as long as you use your imagination. All the pieces of décor and arrangements can look dazzling or even playful. Make your wedding reception look similar to a warm summer breeze, which means that you can use lots of accessories and decorations that are light in tone. On the white table cloths, try using details that are made in a brighter color, such as blue or green, which means that in the same time these colors are kind of raw.
Of course, the most common idea for a summer wedding is to apply for a Swedish buffet, which makes things simpler and it can represent the perfect choice for an open air wedding, where the ideas for the foods that are to be consumed are more reduced – which means that your guests will not feel the need of eating too much, due to the fact that temperatures act like a barrier against hunger. Also, a great idea, in general, is to make sure that even though you do not serve too much food, you have to make sure that it looks great and it functions as an adornment or even a piece of décor. At least in the case of the sweets area, make sure that there are used glazes and colorful textures, or simply ones that are part of that theme.
So, as another piece of advice that we offer you: use a wedding theme (for an open air wedding) that is related as close as possible to summer. Especially if we’re speaking about a more intimate wedding reception, in which the family and friends are the only persons invited.
We suggest you to integrating the natural elements in the wedding reception décor and you should definitely forget about the shiny or silky table cloths, using the wooden tables with a cloth placed on the middle – these tables ought to be an interesting presence through the way in which they look. You should place on them kaki wrappings and plates that have brown details and in this way you are going to have a wedding reception that has a rather medieval look. The wooden chairs can be painted in a green tone, as close to a natural tone as possible, similar to one that you ought to see in a forest and place some brown pillows on, in order to make the look complete.
