My SO and I recently attended an outdoor wedding in a forest. The decorations were simple but elegant. They used hanging baskets with planted flowers. on those garden hooks (maybe about 4 feet off the ground) that lined the area where they were getting married. I thought it dressed up the location very nicely and it wasn’t too expensive either.

@Ja5mne:  I’m a BIG fan of paper lanterns and will be using them almost exclusively for our backyard reception 🙂

@Ja5mne:  Do you have a pic of the ceremony site? Are there trees from which you can hang things? Do you have any theme to your wedding? or feel that you are going for other than the colors? (which will be beautiful, by the way).

Always remember that there is inherent beauty in nature, and it doesn’t need a lot of embellishment.

A few simple paper lanterns focus attention on the altar area

you can buy, or borrow, an inexpensive gazebo (Rite-Aid used to have plasticized paper ones for $19.99) and decorate it

This couple used a picnic theme and picnic baskets in their decor


Tell us more so we can help.

@Ja5mne:  That pavilion is awesome. It wil make for some beautiful pics in front of that fireplace.

I can see a monogram on the chimney above the mantel.

or some greenery

pavilions are fun and easy to decorate as you have so many places to attach things with the beams and pillars

Our whole shabang is outside too…I think the wonder of the outdoors is that I doesn’t need THAT much decor!! Here is what we’re doing….

flower petal aisle with an arch (different colors and no tulle)

centerpieces to go wtih your outdoor/rustic/love bird wedding

The reception is under a tent, and the tent has lights for when it gets dark.


Sweatheart table decor:

We’re having a cupcake tower, and a photobooth with matching theme, and that’s really it.
