23 Creative Outdoor Wedding Ideas to Try
Planning an outdoor wedding? Then this is the blog post for you! We know that organizing a wedding can be overwhelming but we are here to help and have found 23 creative ideas for your special day. We have decor ideas, fun activities and little ways to make the day the best it can be. So, take a look and get inspired!
1. Outdoor Wedding Sign Idea
The first idea we have for an outdoor wedding is a beautiful sign. You need to welcome everyone to the best wedding of the year and a sign like this is a way to do it. It features all the important information with a rose flower arrangement. You can have a sign like this created to suit the theme of your wedding.
2. Flip Flops and Blanket Idea
Next, we have a practical idea to share with you. A wedding is a long day and heels may start to hurt by the time of the reception. So, provide guests with flip flops, that way they can dance the night away pain free. Not only that, but flip flops will stop heels sinking in grass and will suit a beach wedding. Blankets have also been provided in case it gets chilly later on in the evening.
3. Beautiful Bride and Groom Chairs
Outdoor weddings usually have a rustic theme but you can have a very glamorous reception outside. As you can see in the image featured, the reception is green and full of sparkle. One thing we really love about this idea is the chairs, these would look amazing at any wedding. You could even turn these into a DIY project and jazz up ordinary chairs yourself.
4. Bride Tribe Sunglasses
Anyone who is having an outdoor wedding or attending one is hoping for sunny weather. However, the last thing anyone needs is the sun shining in their eyes throughout the reception or ceremony. One way you could avoid this problem is with sunglasses. You can have a basket of sunglasses available for everyone to take, maybe even have personalized glasses like the ones featured. Guests can also keep these as a memory of the day.
5. Unique Vintage Bar
For an outdoor reception you could have a cute and quirky bar like this one! Here we have a caravan that has been turned into a bar. It is vintage and looks amazing. Your guests will love something like this and it can be decorated to suit your theme. There are other creative bar ideas for outdoor weddings too.
6. Outdoor Wedding Ceremony Idea
The design ideas for the ceremony are endless. There are so many seating arrangements, decorations and more to choose from. Here is a beautiful example of an outdoor seating arrangement. The chairs match, are light in color and there are gorgeous flower bouquets on the end chairs. Something like this would suit any wedding and will look amazing.
7. Unplugged Wedding
One couple created this unique outdoor sign for their wedding. It is an unplugged sign that politely asks guests to turn of cellphones and cameras. Having a ceremony like this keeps it private for friends and family and makes the official wedding photos more exciting. You can use this idea for any wedding, indoor or out.
8. Outdoor Seating Plan Idea
A seating plan is very practical. It makes it much easier for guests if they know where they are sitting. Just because it is practical, it doesn’t mean it can’t be decorative. Here is a stunning example of an outdoor seating plan. It uses clear panels with elegant white writing with a beautiful floral backdrop. Something like this would look amazing at any outdoor wedding.
