Finding Your Garden Wedding Inspiration
When planning weddings, gardens always serve as whimsical and romantic wedding inspiration for many brides. Many couples have found unique ways to work their love for gardens into every wedding detail, from the food all the way down to the decor. Today, on The Bride Link we are giving you some wedding inspiration when it comes to incorporating your love for the garden.
The Eternity Rose: A rose is the ultimate symbol of eternal love! An iconic image for most, The Eternity Rose is a real rose that has been custom crafted to last forever. These picturesque roses are handpicked from private gardens overseen by qualified horticulturalists to ensure only perfect roses make the cut. Once completed, they are preserved eternally and won’t tarnish or fade over time. Give guests a chance to view your Eternity Rose in person! Including them as the main centerpiece for the couple's sweetheart table can really create a buzz! If you are interested in giving one as a special gift be sure to check them out. We highly recommend these for a perfect gift!
Pressed Flowers: Not something couples usually think of when flowers come to mind! Surprise your guests by including a pressed flower from your event as a keepsake. For instance, they make wonderful bookmarks once trimmed and dried! You can also include them with your invitations! They add a wonderful custom touch that your guests will love while still providing functional use. These would be perfect for wedding favors.
Floral Inspired Food: Our favorite you ask? Bacon that blooms! Believe it or not, with a little practice, you can roll bacon to mimic rosebuds. Paired with a beautifully marbled filet or sirloin and choice side can wow your guests while still keeping to your central theme. Some other ideas include bakery items with floral-inspired icing designs on baked goods, grilled onion & cheese potato buds, edible flowers for signature drinks, and even a custom floral printed cake! One thing that is really popular nowadays is incorporating your wedding florals onto your wedding cake. It adds the perfect touch to make your cake pop especially if you are planning on doing a more simple cake with no decorations.
Floral Print Bridesmaids Dresses: A customized bridal look that incorporates floral prints for all your bridesmaids! You can coordinate together or have mismatched dresses. We suggest the latter, that way each bridesmaid can pick her own dress. It gives off the perfect look for your custom garden wedding! Don’t stop there, additions such as floral crowns, cute flower girl dresses, floral print shoes, and ice-cold drinks stored in garden wheelbarrows. You’re only limited by your imagination!
A Garden Wedding Arbor: A spectacular photo opportunity not only for the couple but for a great backdrop while taking family photos. It's the perfect chance to capture candid moments from your reception while also adding to the decor and overall theme. Adding a tasteful floral treatment to your arbor and also centerpieces for your reception adds a great touch to your wedding!
Wishing Stones: This one’s easy! Place small river stones and permanent markers at each table and have guests decorate them with personalized messages, well wishes, and congratulations! Once completed, they can be stored in a clear vase and displayed near your favorite wedding portraits.
