Spring is LITERALLY right around the corner, and as someone who spent the last several months buried under Indiana snow and ice, can I just say…
Okay, now that that’s out of the way :)
And nothing makes me more excited for spring than the thought of all the grooming, gardening and blossoming that comes along with it! Add on to that the charm of a backyard wedding, and you might as well put me in hog heaven!!
For cereal, this year, I’ll be attending and a part of (yep, two more bridesmaid dresses added to the collection!) a half dozen wedding day nuptials, and the best part? Over half are outdoors!! Love. Love. Love.
Knowing that so many brides and grooms are opting for the outdoors, I gathered 7 of the best tips to ensure your in-the-elements nuptials go as smoothly as possible.
1 | Solar Powered Chandeliers. Okay, how to words?? This idea is so awesome; I’m literally rendered speechless! Not only do the chandeliers provide something spectacular to look at during the daylight, but as the sun sets, they’ll powered up to provide all kinds of luminescent pretty!
2 | Glow Baby Glow. Flying off the coattails of the theme above, another great way to get that glow is by painting pots with glow in the dark paint! Available in a variety of colors, these unique additions really come to life after being fueled by the sun all day… creating an unmatched ambiance :)
3 | Diaper Dandy Hanging Plants. Sooo, a little less glamorous than its above counterparts, but brilliant nonetheless! Every wonder how to keep your potted plants swinging without risking dirty water drippage? Um, hellllooo?!?! Simply add a diaper to the bottom above the original base, and viola! Mess free success!
4 | Vase Valence for Fences. Both economical AND beautiful, this budget friendly bloom is great for a DIY bride to go nuts on! Between the shapes, sizes and colors of glass bottles and the floral friends that will be accompanying them, the options are practically limitless! And when you knot them along a fence, the look is nothing short of stunning!
**Extra Tip** No fence? That’s fine! The bottles can also be hung from tree branches, posts or whatever! Get creative :)
5 | Further Fence Fashion w/ Mirrors. Absolutely – hands down – adore this! Talk about getting more bang for your buck! Using framed or hung mirrors through your setting will immediately create the illusion of more space and grandeur! Not to mention, it can also be a cheap and fun DIY project :)
6 | Bring the Indoors, Outdoors. Love love love the use of indoor furniture outdoors. There’s just something fun and whimsical about an oversized couch or lounge furniture decorating a backyard that just makes me happy :)
