One of the hot wedding trends for 2015 is to have an outdoors inspired wedding. The natural backdrop and placement of the sun are welcome additions to your festivities as well as pictures. Nature can inspire your wedding theme, flowers, and ceremony symbolism.
- By the beach? Choose nautical pieces to accent your decor, placement cards, jewelry.
- Surrounded by flowers? Floral inspired gowns, floral crowns, and favors of floral seed packets work well.
- In the woods? Moss and tree trunk ring holders for your ring bearer, centerpieces of leaves and berries, and a tree of life guest sign-in poster honor your environment.
Your wedding coordinator or caterer can work with you to tie together the natural elements and requirements like tents, dance floors, food, bathroom needs, and electricity.
The above picture is of Colt State Park in Bristol, RI. I have officiated a number of weddings for couples during various seasons there. The park has ample space for a reception or you can go to a local indoor venue. The ocean overlooks this quaint and serene ceremony spot and the granite seating can be as is or covered to your liking. Bubbles and flower petals can be given to your guests to share during your recession and the breeze is refreshing on a warm summers day.
Together you and your soon-to-be spouse can create a lasting and memorable outdoors wedding for yourselves and your guests!
