We all seem to think that you must either have an indoor wedding or an outdoor wedding--the two are mutually exclusive. But that is not necessarily true...you can always bring the outdoors in! So as we head into winter wedding season with beautiful white snow, barren branches, and a stunning dark night sky, embrace the ability to bring the outdoors inside with these tips from the wedding venue experts at Wedding Spot, an online tool that helps couples search, compare and book wedding venues by category. You can even search for a specific venue, gather all the information on pricing and available dates and--if it's a fit--set up with an appointment. If anyone understands how to utilize venues to their full (and winter glory) potential, it are the gurus at Wedding Spot.
Goodbye summer, hello fall! If you’re hosting your wedding ceremony or reception at an indoor venue during these next colder months but you still want to channel the festive, outdoor style of summertime weddings, this post goes out to you. Maybe you’re in love with the idea of a ceremony in the garden, a casual dinner out on the lawn, and dancing under the stars, but for whatever reason missed the chance to have a summer wedding (those off-peak prices are pretty convincing, we know!).
In any case, have no fear—we’ve brainstormed 4 ways to bring the gorgeous outdoors in, so you can still have the outdoorsy wedding you’ve always dreamed of, minus the bug spray and fans!
1. Branches and Flowers
Branches—bare or not—have a beautiful, whimsical quality to them that adds just the right amount of that rustic, natural look to any ceremony or reception venue. We’ve seen bare branches, painted branches, and branches weaved with petals and leaves all look marvelous against almost any backdrop. Use them as centerpieces or line your aisle with them to craft a dramatic look that still maintains a quirky, woodland vibe.
Of course, the concept of bringing the outdoors in wouldn’t be right without the addition of flowers! If you’re going for a super lush look, try hanging bundles of flowers and greens from the ceiling. You could alternatively string just a couple together to create a subtle floral accent.
2. Outdoor Fixtures
Bring your favorite outdoor fixtures inside to create a romantic garden wedding atmosphere. Bring in a wooden arch and wrap it in flowers and vines, or try decorating the entry with dainty wrought iron gates. If you want to go for a rustic wedding look, prop up wooden doors for your ceremony backdrop.
