3 Gorgeous Themes for Outdoor Weddings

outdoor weddings

Couples always want their wedding to be unique and memorable. So instead of planning a formal event with white gowns and tuxedos, they opt for outdoor weddings that include camping, fishing, hiking, and other fun activities!

This is a growing trend that might fit for your wedding plans! There are three great options for enhancing an outdoor wedding for those brides and grooms who still want a formal celebration but do not want to cut back on the themes. We listed a few ones below!

•                The Great Outdoors

You can rent a cabin or a campsite to hold your wedding for this theme. You can decorate the area with streamers, balloons, flower pots, etc. In addition to these decorations, partake in various activities such as archery, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, and fishing.

Why not serve a meal that includes wild game (such as deer and rabbit), fish (caught from a nearby lake), and other outdoor dishes?

After the meal, guests can participate in an outdoor campfire, where tales of how you met your loved one can be shared while everyone munches on s’mores!

To give your wedding a unique touch, hold contests to see which guest brings back the biggest fish!

You could also have a photo booth where guests can dress up in old-fashioned camping gear, such as flannel shirts and suspenders.

 

•                Romantic River Views

Couples who would like to avoid the more rustic feel of an outdoor wedding can plan for a large banquet hall or hotel room with views of a river, lake, or other body of water.

For this event, you can decorate the room with floating candles in glass bowls filled with water to create a soft glow that enhances the beauty of the natural surroundings. You can also have tables decorated with colorful bouquets and votives.

After dining, serve champagne to guests as they dance under the stars on a deck overlooks the water. And have tables set up where guests can play outdoor games, such as bocce ball, frisbee, and badminton.

 

•                Western Decorations

If you want something traditional but with a twist, have an outdoor wedding decorated in western décor. For example, instead of having large banquet tables for guests to dine on, use campfire grills and food carts. Of course, don’t forget to serve steak, hamburgers, corn on the cob, and salads too!

After dinner, invite guests to listen to old country songs and use hay bales for guests to sit on when they want a break from dancing.

 

Whatever theme you choose, your wedding is sure to be unique and memorable as long as you keep the emphasis on fun. So, whether you want to be surrounded by nature or have your wedding indoors, these themes can enhance any wedding.
