Are you planning a outdoor wedding party in the sunshine? Take a look at these outdoor themes which will mean you & your guests will have a day & night to remember.
A Outdoor Garden Wedding Celebration.
Why not make the most of the English Country Garden theme, with rustic elements. Wildflowers for your centre pieces & bouquet. with cool & quirky props such as ladders, a unique table plan, candy bar & Pimms bar, and plenty of DIY touches. Add hessian & jam jars to tie it all together. The perfect venues for this theme would be a large substantial garden or field & a marquee.
Festival Outdoor Wedding Celebration
My personal favourite is the Festival Theme, especially if you looking for a more informal wedding day. Lots of options here for you, either track down a venue like Talton Lodge ( above pic ) where the Tipi is set up all year round with accommodation spread around in it's grounds in a form of small tipi's & yurts. Alternatively hire a Giant Tipi from Elite Tents which can be set up either on a venue like Oldberrow House , a field or a large garden. Then the world is your oyster, consider, outdoor bars or food stalls, quirky & unusual photo booths, chalk boards, cocktail bar. Simple table dressings on long tables, informal seating a live band, and then in the evenings a tipi comes to life with the added sparkle of interior lights.
A Venue With A Outdoor Option
Why not pick a venue with a option for a blessing outside & a abundance of woodland photo opportunities ? This venue is Hothorpe Hall, ( pic above) not only is there the Hothorpe Hall to get married in, they also have the amazing Woodlands area, which also has a purpose built reception room should you decide to use it or in case the weather lets you down. Dress your tables with logs, candles & moss; these woodland elements just suit this venue down to the ground. Scattered around the woodland area there are lodges for your guests to stay in & a treehouse for the bride & groom.
A Vintage Tea Party
The first thing that springs to mind with a vintage tea party theme is teacups....and these are so easy to hire out from events companies. If your Midlands based Honey Bees Vintage Teas have a vast selection, along with a vintage Ice cream bicycle & other fabulous props for you to hire. Although a vintage theme isn't just bunting & cupcakes, it can also be glamorous, add gold touches to bring out a luxurious feel, add lace & lots of roses. Venues wise, village hall, cricket pavilion, elegant Town Hall or a small venue spring to mind. Then book a vintage group to come & sing at your event.... now that would be a night to remember.
