in desperate search of innovative decor ideas for getting married under a tree! i’ve seen:
-a piece of fabric draping through the tree
-streamers hanging from the tree
-a chuppah/canopy on the ground in front of the tree
what else have you seen? feel free to share your photos!

umbrellas- I couldn’t find the pic I wanted but this one shows umbrellas used upside down at an outdoor carnival themed wedding with strings of globe lights

Lol, we’ll be under a palm tree… a little to high for decorations… but vs the Winter weather and state of the trees back home, I’m quite happy to photograph it AS IS.

These are not my personal photos, but ones I found when I was researching venues. I really wanted to get married at this country club because of this tree but we didn’t end up going with this venue.

DH and I got married under a beautiful old magnolia tree which worked out fantastically because it was such a hot day! We didn’t add any decoations because the tree was quite low-hanging and I think it would’ve taken away from the green beauty of our venue (and I’m not very creative!).
Here’s us at our rehearsal:
And during our ceremony:

We didn’t use anything but aisle decor. The lake backdrop was more than enough for us!

We’re getting married under an old oak tree. Not using any decorations though because we want to take advantage of the natural beauty. No need in beautifying something that is already beautiful!

We just had a tree! 🙂 We used a white canvas aisle runner and lined the aisle with potted yellow daisies:

I think the tree can be such a beautiful part of the ceremony that you don’t really need any decorations.
I’m more of a glamour girl, so I have seen chandeliers hung from trees and LOVE the idea. Or, the small votive candel rain drop vases hanging with a single orchid in it. Or simple have some flowers are the entrance of the ceremony.
Remember to consider guests and footwear. Walking to an all grass ceremony can be tough in your dress. Also consider the time of day/location you will be married – will the grass be dry in the tree area? (e.g., in Toronto, under a shady tree all day and the grass may not be dry depending on the time). And also consider back up.
On a personal note: I attended a wedding where part of the guests were under a big beautiful tree. We were facing Lake Ontario and enjoying the beautiful view … when along came a spider. A few of us had spiders crawling on us from dropping down from the tree.
