You know, we’re a sucker for an outdoor wedding. From the lighting, to the decor, to all those beautiful photo opportunities - there’s so much to look forward to! So, we’re here with an outdoor weddings roundup. Find out what you love, what you want, and what you should consider when planning your big day for the big outdoors! So, let’s not waste anytime, we’re seriously ready for all those aesthetically pleasing images…

Outdoor Wedding Decorations 

When it comes to outdoor wedding decorations, we love a good floral display. Because, let’s face it, flowers are pretty durable outside… It’s also the perfect opportunity to be a little bit sustainable, and find those seasonal flowers that won’t contribute to those pesky CO2 emissions! Take a look at this beautiful sustainable luxury wedding inspiration, with a stunning ceremony filled with glorious flowers. Or how about going for that rustic vibe? We love a few up-cycled pallets - perfect for table plans or an Order Of The Day! 

Outdoor Wedding Lighting 

You know, we’re not sure what it is about fairy lights, but they just make everything better. The moment we see something surrounded by those twinkling little balls of heaven, we just go ‘aaaah - gorgeous!’ Hey, we can’t help it. Oh, and lanterns. Seriously, is there anything more stunning than an outdoor space lit up by lanterns? We think not. And, if you don’t believe us, take a look at this beyond incredible wedding in Marrakech. Honestly, it leaves us speechless every time.  

Grazing Tables

Ok, when it comes to catering outdoors, we’re all about the grazing tables. Now, here us out. For one thing, how damn good do they look!? All that colour, texture, and delicious looking food looks seriously incredible on film. Secondly, it’s easily organised! Finding food everyone loves isn’t always easy, so we’re very much into the idea of offering choice… and lots of it! Thirdly… did we mention it looks amazing? Honestly, just see for yourself… take a look at our article on why they’re everywhere, and we’re not mad about it! 

Back Up Plan

Whether you’re abroad, or in the U.K., the weather can be slightly erm, unpredictable. Well, let’s call a spade a spade, the weather in good ol’ Britannia can be pretty naff. So, it’s better to be prepared. We would suggest your outdoor wedding has some sort of undercover shelter, )because no one wants hypothermia on their wedding day). Tipi’s and marquee’s are a fantastic way to go. They look awesome, and you’re still outside! Even if the sun is shining, it’s nice to have a little shade. Remember, you can check out our Recommended Suppliers for all your shelter needs! 

If you’re looking for more outdoor wedding inspiration, then honestly, you’ve come to the right place. Take a look at this gorgeous boho wedding, complete with Persian rugs and Festoon lighting. Or how about this outdoor seating area? The perfect example of what you can do to keep your guests comfortable! Seriously, who said sofas were made for the indoors… not us.
