The peak season for outdoor weddings takes place from June through October, and the possibilities for outdoor wedding themes are endless. With all of the options out there, you will be sure to select a theme which reflects you and your fiancé’s unique personalities. The following five wedding themes are on trend for outdoor celebrations this year and are sure to please both you and your guests.
Afternoon Tea – An elegant approach to the outdoor wedding, this theme plays on the British tradition of high tea, incorporating large floral arrangements, pastel colors, fine china, elegant linens, and an array of pretty and sweet confections. For a whimsical take on the theme, think Mad Hatter and use bold colors, checkered patterns, and topsy-turvy tiers on your wedding cake.
Picnic – Perfect for a wedding in the park, capture the spirit of this fun theme with picnic table cloths, picnic-style seating, and arrangements of white and yellow daisies in woven baskets. Guests can sip lemonade and iced tea while playing games of horse shoes, badminton, and flying kites.
Beach – In this popular wedding theme, the spotlight is on nature. Keep your decor simple and serene with breezy white linens, white floral arrangements, and natural objects like shells and cobblestones.
Bohemian – A relaxed theme for the backyard, a bohemian celebration is fun, hip, and full of personal style. Screen printed invitations with casual language will make your wedding bohemian from the beginning. Trade a traditional veil for a woven floral crown and ask your bridesmaids to wear mismatched dresses in earthy tones like teal, yellow, and terra cotta. Decorate tables with feathers, air plants, succulents, and lanterns and hang floral arrangements from the trees in macrame planters. String empty picture frames from trees too to create unique portrait opportunities for guests.
Rustic – The quintessential wild west wedding, this theme is best set at a picturesque barn or on a ranch. Decor features cowhide seating, leather elements, antler motifs, and bales of hay. Wildflowers like lupine, primrose, and cornflower lend a delicately rugged feel to floral arrangements. In a rustic wedding, feel free to pair cowboy boots with your wedding dress and ride down the aisle on horseback.
