Planning a garden wedding event requires a special set of skills and tools. You need to plan this type of event with an eye for detail, as well as work within the limitations of the space. Because you don’t want your guests to spend most of their time outdoors in the heat, you’ll also need to think carefully about timing and lighting when scheduling your event.
What You Need for a Garden Wedding?
Implementing a garden wedding doesn’t mean there aren’t other things you need to consider before holding your special day. There are also some very basic things you should take into account, including what kind of food you want served and how many people you expect to attend. Your caterer will be able to advise on this if you haven’t already found one yourself.
Here are two essential tools that will help make planning your garden wedding event much easier:
The flowers for your wedding will play an important role in creating an ambiance. They’ll help tie everything together, from the food to the décor.
But you don’t have to limit yourself to flowers that can be planted in the garden. You can choose from an array of beautiful flowers that are specially grown for use in an event setting. Your florist will likely be able to advise you on what types of flowers will work best for your garden wedding. They should also be able to help you decide on a color scheme, which should complement the type of event you’re hosting.
Your florist will be responsible for selecting and placing the flowers at the venue.
A Floor Plan
Building a floor plan for your garden wedding event can help you visualize how your ceremony and reception will look with guests, decorations, and tables. You can create this on paper, or use a computer-based design program for added convenience. Depending on how large your event is, you may need to create multiple floor plans. When creating a floor plan, make sure you account for all of your furniture.
