A secret garden wedding is best suited to the Spring or Summer months, where you’ll be spoilt with better weather and lots of beautiful blooms. You’ll need to find a venue that has a lovely outdoor space, walled gardens or plenty of gorgeous flowers. However, it’s also handy to choose a venue that has an indoor area in case of any poor weather. Opt for a venue that boasts water fountains, vintage benches and lots of opportunities for your wedding photographs. If your wedding venue hasn’t already got one, you could create a romantic wooden or metal archway adorned with dusky pink roses and lots of greenery. We think pale pink and lots of foliage will look just stunning for a secret garden wedding!
Kick-start your secret garden wedding with your invitations. Pretty pink and green illustrations will give your guests an ever-so-subtle hint of what’s to come. Watercolour hues will help to keep your theme soft, whimsical and full of romance. We recommend keeping the same design throughout your big day to ensure your stationery looks coordinated. For instance, your seating plan, order of service and table stationery. You could also decorate your venue with books about gardening, plants or old-fashioned stories.
When it comes to your aisle style, a blush pink gown is a divine choice for a bride who wants something outside the norm. Alternatively, a flowing gown with layers of tulle and lace will look beautifully bohemian and it will fit in with the setting of your secret garden. A pink bridal flower crown will help add the finishing touches to your outfit. Have you seen our Blush collection of hair accessories? We’ve got a whole range of gorgeous accessories that will add a touch of rosy sparkle to your wedding look. Our Ali Hair Vine and Anais Headband are both the perfect fit for an enchanting secret garden wedding.
When it comes to your bridesmaids, consider dressing your best girls in a variety of pink gowns. From the palest pink, peony pink and rose pink, your team of ‘maids will look stunning as they walk down the aisle with you.
Flowers are one of the most important aspects of your secret garden wedding and they will really help to tie your theme in together. Be sure to let your florist know about your visions and they will be able to help make your dreams a reality. Use flowers to decorate your ceremony chairs, archways, centrepieces and lots more. You could even use real blooms to decorate your wedding cake – just imagine how delicious cascading posies would look on a 5-tier masterpiece! You could also place a few posies in a mason jar and dot them around your wedding venue. This is such a simple idea but you’ll be surprised at just how pretty it looks.
We can’t get over this darling wedding theme and we think a secret garden wedding is a wonderful option for those who are dreaming of an intimate celebration with friends and family.
