I am having an outdoor wedding and was wondering what kind of ideas the bees could come up with! The ceremony will be out in the backyard (its more like an acre and a half) and the guests will be able to see the deck when they are being seated for the ceremony. I will enter from the house, across the deck, and down the stairs to the yard. After wards we are going to have the ‘reception’ of cake and punch on the deck (its a HUGE deck).
I was wondering how I could decorate the deck. I was thinking maybe winding ribbons around the railing that match my colors. It will be a late morning or early afternoon wedding (we haven’t decided). Is it a cheesy idea? Or does anyone have better ideas?
Thanks for the input!!!!!!

Hmm. What are your wedding colors? How wide is the railing? Some pretty potted flowers in your wedding colors all along the rails or down the sides of the steps could look really nice. I was going to suggest christmas lights or lanterns, but those probably wouldn’t work as well since it’s a daytime wedding (and it sounds so pretty!). Is the deck open underneath? If so, you could drape some fabric almost like curtains to either side of the posts, then pull it back with ribbon.

I’m not sure what your colors are but here are a few ideas (we had an outdoor wedding as well)
1. I was on Gurney’s website yesterday (it’s a garden website that sells flowers, trees, ect..) they have these mini lemon, orange, or lime trees. I think these would make a great element of decoration.
You could decorate any tables you had with lemons, keeping florals to a minimum.
I think if you also have a few tables rent some linens in your colors to really make the location pop.
Another idea that just came ot mind is to tie a string from the house to some other point over the deck and hang poms in your wedding colors from them. They are easy and cheap to make.
