I’ve been bouncing a few ideas off the wall. I really want a garden themed wedding, but I am a bit lost as to how to bring the garden inside for the reception with an elegant twist. My colors are Sage, Latte, Ivory, and maybe pops of yellow. Any ideas from you decor savy bees out there. I know that I want to use long tables as opposed to round and I know I want to use ballroom chairs perhaps gold chiavari chairs. That is as far as I have come. Are there any cool website that would allow me to work with the dimensions of a room on my computer to play with decor ideas? I know that this is an awful lot to ask in one post, but time is really closing in and I have to get the move on this planning. Thanks alot guys.

@chachaya: i think if you are going for a garden party theme, you would need a LOT of floral and greenery. i would bring some trees in and have lanterns and lots of lush, ferny type plants, as well as blooms. unfortunately, this means $$$$$. is having it outdoors not an option?

See if you can rent potted trees from your florist, or buy fake ones from a craft store, and decorate them with pomanders and lights or something. Try seeing if you can find any arches to rent/buy and decorate them with fake flower garlands and put them around the doors. These are a few things I have seen done at indoor garden themed receptions.

I’m having a ceremony in a courtyard garden at my university.
Here’s an inspiration board I made. Think of hanging crystals, flowers/botanicals, lanterns, woodsy stuff, candlelight, etc.–basically bringing outside elements indoors. I hope this helps spur some creativity.
You don’t need a bunch of plants or flowers–check out our centerpiece idea in this inspiration board–just a handful of flowers will do it. I love garden-themed weddings. Your color palette sounds so dreamy, I adore it.
P.S. Our theme is “Key to my heart” (think Secret Garden). Our colors are blue and green, but I see your colors popping through on this board! 😉
