  7. Create a Wishing Tree out of twigs and crystals so guests can hang well wishes, memories, and jokes in place of a guest book.

  13. One of the beauty parts about having your wedding in a garden is that it saves you money on floral arrangements since there are already flowers around. One idea is to make your bouquet out of flowers already in the garden.

  15. Blow bubbles instead of throwing rice or bird seed. It creates a beautiful affect and hurts a lot less when you get some in the face.

Some other fun garden wedding ideas to consider:

  • String white lights in the trees and bushes. This really adds to the atmosphere after dark.
  • Consider having a light menu and just serving cheese, crackers and fruit with a beer and wine bar.
  • Choose to have the ceremony outside and the reception food inside to create movement through out the wedding.
  • A Garden wedding doesn't have to be a in floral garden. This can all apply is you are looking for backyard wedding ideas as well.
  • Use flower petals to create the runway to the altar.
  • Using white or ivory as the main decorating color scheme does not compete with the bride. That is a myth. In a garden wedding, it can create a lightness to the decor.
  • Depending on your location, consider handing out umbrellas or bug repellant to guests as a fun way to show you are prepared for the elements.
