Don’t forget the outdoors!

Regular Save the Date Magazine contributor Gemma Morgan from The Wedding of My Dreams talks to us about bringing the indoors outside and how an outdoor wedding really can make the best impact.




“We all know you can’t predict the English summer but we are seeing more and more couples in the UK holding their weddings outdoors. And why not, there are some wonderful venues set in the English countryside with beautiful grounds.

If you are dreaming of an outdoor ceremony, find a venue with an outdoor location. Once you have found the perfect venue there are some super pretty ways you can style your outdoor ceremony. I love the idea of entering the ceremony through wooden doors, these remain shut until the bride and her father enter through them. To create the aisle, hang jam jars filled with pretty blooms from shepherds crooks, or if the ground is not suitable for shepherds crooks tie apothacary bottles to the chairs and add a flower. Guests will love all these pretty details.




If you are not opting for an outdoor ceremony but are lucky enough to have some sunshine on your wedding day you will no doubt be wanting to make the most of it. There are lots of lovely ideas for decorating outdoor spaces, hang pom poms and bunting around the grounds. Choose a feature tree and hang apothecary bottles each filled with a flower from the branches or even long strands of ribbon in your wedding colours.




{Outdoor Entertainment and Lighting}

Take the entertainment outdoors, a string quartet set up outside for an outdoor ceremony is always such a lovely touch. Set up games outdoors, these will be enjoyed by children and adults! We have seen wedding guests enjoying sack races, giant jenga, croquet and children love pinatas.




Guests will enjoy spending time outdoors right through to the evening, so don’t forget to enhance the gardens with lighting. Whether you choose tea lights in jam jars or larger lanterns, or opt for strings of light bulbs from the trees this will light up the grounds beautifully. Paper lanters work perfectly for weddings and are easy on the budget, just add a long lasting tea light and they will glow for hours. At the Wedding of my Dreams we sell a collection of paper lanterns and especially love our JUST MARRIED lanterns which are fab for photos!
