My ceremony and cocktail hour will take place in the garden of this hotel,  but the sit down meal is inside.  we will get married in front of the gazebo, and thanks to a Bee on here selling me her rose vines,  it will be covered in white roses and ivy…..

The reception wont be in the house in front,  but behind me,  where i stood when i took this picture…

My daughter’s was in a garden, so my advice to you is to have a backup plan for bad weather, and be on top of the growth of any plants and flowers in the area you may be considering. Our venue assured us the flowers would be in full bloom and lush, but after a below normal Spring and little rainfall, the in ground flowers were pretty pitiful. I wish I’d thought about it and gotten more flowers. The venue also provided a large tent so the guest chairs were placed underneath. It poured all day,stopped just in time to have it outside, but started up again when they went back outside for pictures. Here’s some that I have on this computer.

@Au Jardin: Thanks! I love the private little garden in the middle of all that frenzy.

Agree with PP, definitely have a rain plan if you’re planning a garden wedding!!! We had one before we booked ours.

We got married at a venue that had tons of garden spaces, which was one of the main reasons we chose this place. We got married there in July, which was at the height of their foliage in my opinion, so the colors were just phenomenal. If you’re getting hitched in a garden-type set-up in the summer, also consider how hot it might be. We had our ceremony under a tree which offered some much needed shade, gave our guests straw fans to help them cool off & had cold drinks available pre-ceremony (citrus-infused water, iced tea & lemonade), our guests could go inside or out for cocktail hour, and the reception was indoors in blissful (but not over the top) A/C. Here are some of my fave photos from the day:

I had my wedding in a victorian garden and it was beautiful! But be prepared for rain or heat, you cant climate control the outdoors! We kept our ceremony to 15 minutes, since it was super hot and called for a storm, thank goodness the storm held off till later!

How beautiful! We’re getting married and having to reception in an indoor garden area that overlooks an ouotdoor garden. But since it’s winter it will mostly be branches seen outside and a rocky waterfall that may be icicles depending on the temperature:)

I’m trying to play up the decor that is already in there to make it a really full, vibrant and sparkly garden without being too much or too tacky. Planning to use jewel tone purples, blues, pinks, greens, reds, silver and white accents. There are also chandeliers and hanging plants in the room so I want to create something with more dangling garden ornaments hanging from them like butterflies, dragonflies and just crystals/jewels in general. We’ll see. Any thoughts or ideas are more than welcome!

This is some of my inspiration:
