Every bride wants their day to be special and memorable so what better way to do that than having a garden wedding reception. This is a popular way to end your wedding, as it is open to the sky, allowing guest to enjoy natural beauty. You can also have your wedding in the garden. There are many reasons to hold both your wedding and reception in a garden, such as they can accommodate big gatherings, and are less expensive than indoor wedding venues for a reception.
When planning your garden wedding venue there is one thing that you need to take into consideration. You need to ensure there is enough space to accommodate a big group of people, that there is an area where people can dance, room for a band or DJ, room to set up tables if you are having a banquet, and more. Most brides who are planning a garden wedding and reception think that it is going to be a beautiful sunny day but no one can dictate the weather and make it be a sunny day. It could be a wet miserable do so you should rent a tent. Not only will it give you protection if the weather does not cooperate, it will give an ambiance to the wedding reception.
If you are using a tent, make sure that it is placed on even ground at a high level. If the water accumulates after a shower or the area is uneven install a subflooring of vinyl or plywood. Make sure that there are no overhead utility lines. The size tent that you will need depends on how many people will be there at the reception along with allowing space for dancing and seating if these are to be held under cover. You can choose from sturdy frame tents to the traditional pole tents.
Lighting is an important consideration, which adds to the romance of the wedding and reception. You should choose colors that create the mood you are trying to portray, which can include:
• Oranges and reds to energize your guests and create excitement
• Purples and blues will give your wedding reception a relaxing tranquil setting
• Golden and amber tones will give you beautiful pictures that make your guests and décor look beautiful
• Pinks will give your wedding reception comfort and warmth.
The décor for your garden wedding reception should be minimal because nature also adds to your decoration. To complement the natural settings a garden wedding reception provide choose floors. If the flowers are a table center, do not make them so big they take up most of the table. If you want to have big flower arrangements put then in English garden-type urns or on tall pedestals.
