THEMED WEDDING-BRING THE OUTDOORS IN! AN ENCHANTING GARDEN
I’ve always wanted an outdoor themed wedding. However, because of Singapore’s unpredictable weather, we decided not to risk it and went with a garden theme that was set indoors.
While an outdoor wedding is a beautiful idea, it isn’t always practical, and many couples are afraid of the rain. They don’t want to have to move something beautiful indoors, and they really don’t want to wait until the last minute to do so.
One of the popular settings for a wedding is in a garden because of the natural look of the flowers. Since this is typically sought after in spring (aka when it rains), we like to work with our brides to bring the garden indoors. A recent wedding we worked on focused on a “secret garden” theme to really bring it all together. We turned the drab country club into a garden by including fresh flowers that weren’t constructed into tall centrepieces but rather deconstructed to look a little less formal. We also brought heavy greenery to the double doors outside so that guests knew they were entering the garden. Even the walls had flower arrangements on them.
Speaking of lighting, for the couples that were really hoping for that outdoor and open-air reception, complete with bistro lighting, there’s no reason not to string up lights inside as well. With bistro lights and market lighting becoming so popular, almost every rental company is offering them, and as long as your venue allows them, you should consider stringing them inside your venue.
The best thing about hosting the outside on the inside is not having to worry about the pesky problems that nature brings. There’s no reason to offer up baskets of bug spray, sunblock, or flip-flops so that no one sinks into the grass. Things you want to stay away from if you’re trying this trend is white lounge furniture or LED anything; instead, stick to vintage and rustic chic pieces to pull this look together.
