Summer has finally landed at Save the Date Magazine and we’re busy day-dreaming about celebrations filled with sunshine, blue skies and of course, lots of romance! With the help of our very talented Cream of the Crop Wedding Suppliers, we’re offering you some utterly gorgeous outdoor wedding ceremony inspiration for this swoon-worthy season. So, dive in and be swept up in summer ceremony ideas galore…
An outdoor wedding ceremony has an undeniable romance. Whether you choose to tie the knot in an elegant garden in the country or on a beach at a dreamy destination, you will be spoilt with the natural beauty of your surroundings. However, there are lots of way to make your setting become completely unique to you as a couple, and it’s all down to the details and décor.
We’re in love with the thought of using wooden signs to add the wow-factor to your wedding ceremony, particularly if you want to give your day a rustic-luxe vibe. You could display your favourite romantic quote, your wedding hashtag, or even your wedding day timings. Display it at the entrance of your outdoor ceremony to set the scene. Keep it on-trend by adorning it with lots of leafy foliage, lush greenery and blousy blooms.
Wooden signs can also be used to direct your guests around your wedding venue, particularly if you’re having a festival wedding with lots of space. From the bar to the dance-floor, it will be extremely useful for those attending your big day. You could even use a little arrow sign directing your guests to your ceremony.
Make your aisle stand out from the crowd by lining it with gorgeous, antique-inspired rugs and throws. Not only will it give your ceremony a bohemian meets urban feel, it’ll be very practical if you’re tying the knot in a field!
Wooden archways are always going to be a popular choice for an outdoor ceremony backdrop and we can certainly see why. You can decorate them to suit any colour palette, theme or style and they can instantly transform any space. You could entwine the archway with bold, statement blooms and handfuls of greenery, or surround it with lanterns, vases and wooden crates. If you’re daydreaming of an elegant, outdoor ceremony why not drape ivory flowing material around the archway – this is the perfect choice for a luxury beach affair. Match the material to your table cloth, chair covers and even your napkins for a look that is stylish and coordinated.
Round archways are also a super-hot trend for 2018 / 2019 weddings and they are a gorgeous choice for an outdoor ceremony in the summer. Stylish with a dash of quirk, they’re made for the couple who want their ceremony to stand out from the crowd.
