So FI and I bookd our venue but I LOVE garden weddings and the romantic feel of outdoor weddings.
So I am asking for some help on how to bring the garden inside! Anything would help!
We also have a stage area where we need to decorate (where FI and I wil be sitting) and though that would be a great place to really focus the theme.

Bring the garden inside by using the same colors as mother nature.
Use garden stakes for escort cards. Stick them into a tray of wheatgrass.
Green linens will give you a great background for any color of flowers. This is one wedding theme where you really must have flowers- whether real, silk or paper,
Keep the centerpieces natural looking- like a bouquet picked out of the garden, not something formally arranged by a florist. Use garden flowers- roses, hydrangeas, sweet peas, mums etc- not orchids and lillies.
Use footed garden urns, watering cans or rustic wooden boxes for centerpiece containers.
You can rent trees from a nursery and add mini lights, or make your own with artificial trees thrifted from stores or craigslist. You can take large branches, set them in plsater of paris in pots and do the same with lights.
Have small containers like teacups or tea tins, scattered around the venue- on the bar, on the gift table in the bathrooms.
For the stage area , get a gazebo and place the sweeetheart table inside.
Surround the gazebo with trees or shrubs.

I agree with Julies, I think she makes a lot of great points on how to bring it indoors. Here is what I envisions when you said that and her ideas:

@doily: Love the terrarium idea. That would help reduce the cost of flowers too!

I LOVEEEE the gazebo idea…SO much! Definitely researching it now see if I can get rentals.
Thank you ladies so much.
You think pompanders would work within the theme?

I would have done something different… lots and lots of planters all around containing real flowers, with linen and tulle/lace ribbons around them, and fairy lights everywhere. terraniums/ live flowers in planters as centrepieces with candles next to them, and cut floral arrangements. then just go for the standard white linen and decor thing. You could even grow all your own flowers in advance… that would be amazing!
*seriously considers doing just that*
