Discover Inspiration from Real Weddings for Your Garden Fête

What scene could represent love in its purest form better than springtime? Whether hosting their nuptials during the season or not, many modern couples are electing to incorporate a garden motif into their big day in some way or another. This romantic theme is adaptable to most any daytime wedding, including a morning/brunch affair. The bright color palette and fairy-tale design of a garden-based event is incredibly alluring to couples looking for a slightly less formal ceremony, quite like a tea party.

While one may not think garden weddings are applicable to evening events, modern pairs have found ingenious ways to incorporate garden-inspired detailing into nuptials starting after 5PM. Creating an indoor space that feels alfresco is an excellent way to bring guests from the grand ballroom of luxe, downtown hotel, and into a lush courtyard somewhere in the countryside filled with colorful blooms and greenery.
