Outdoor ceremonies are being held more and more and brides are constantly searching and capturing new ideas to decorate a civil ceremony. And the truth is that you have to take into account many details so that your ceremony will leave your guests speechless .
There are so many options for each corner: the altar, the seating area for the guests, the central corridor, a welcome corner, a space for rice / confetti / petals etc … And we do not forget the details as the alliance holder , the signs of “here comes the bride”, …
IDEAS TO DECORATE THE CEREMONY TABLE
We start with the most exciting corner of a wedding, the altar area. Outdoor weddings are so versatile that they really allow any type of decoration that we can imagine. First of all you must think about what kind of altar you would like to marry. You can choose between a table, an arch, maybe the place already has some kind of nice structure that you can take advantage of.
Second, let’s think about floral decoration . So that the costs do not go off, it is important to choose a combination of seasonal flowers and filling elements, what I call “green”.
Do not forget to think about the seats of the couple , you know that it has to be something special but comfortable. You’re going to be sitting a good while. Depending on the theme of your wedding may be chairs, armchairs, alpaca seats, … Another option is to stand, especially when the ceremony is held in front of a beautiful arch, however I would only recommend it for weddings with a small duration.
IDEAS TO DECORATE THE SEATS OF THE GUESTS
Another very important element to decorate a civil ceremony is the area of the seats of the guests. Placing chairs in a row is simple but you will have to add decorative elements for the chairs and the aisle.
Personally I love the bouquets hanging on one side of the seats that form the main hall. Another idea is to include elements of decoration in the corridor such as bouquets of flowers, petals, wicker baskets with flowers or plants, perhaps even a nice rug, thousand ideas, …
A very nice detail to leave in the seats of the guests are the country with the structure of the ceremony, the cases with handkerchiefs for tears of happiness or even a nice fan for the guests, especially if you marry in July or August.
DETAILS FOR THE ENTRY OF THE BRIDE
For me, one of the most emotional moments, the entrance of the bride. On many occasions the damsels and the pages enter in front of the bride. They can carry a nice sign with “here comes the bride” and the cushion with the alliances. It is beautiful and they are very sweet moments.
WELCOME CORNER TO DECORATE A CIVIL CEREMONY
When I browse Pinterest, I love the beautiful welcoming corners that I see so much at outdoor weddings. Maybe it sounds like something very “American” but it is something that is increasingly seen in Spanish weddings.
To welcome your guests you have different options. You can create a corner with posters but you can also do something different. An example are the antique decorated doors that mark the entrance to the ceremony area. To do this you only have to restore a couple of beautiful but old doors and ask the florist to decorate them.
FREE BAR OF RICE, PETALS OR CONFETTI
And last but very important, you have to prepare the moment “just married”. Talk to the place of the ceremony and according to what is allowed you can prepare sachets or conitas with rice, confetti or flower petals .
You can choose to place them in the chairs of each one, next to the program of the ceremony and the tears of happiness or you can prepare a nice corner to the more candy bar style but of rice / confetti / petals. Both options are great and the guests love it.
