Looking for inspiration? Are you searching for the perfect outdoor wedding venue? Whether you are considering a Twilight-inspired, gothic themed wedding, maybe you are considering a bohemian vibe with flowers for your hair, or perhaps a fairytale, whimsical wedding would be your dream theme? Imagine a beautiful forest, with a carpet of soft cushioned moss, textures of fallen branches intertwined with ferns and shade-loving blooms, and surrounded by tall lumbering evergreen trees in an intimate clearing in the woods. Do you have that vision in your mind? Now take that vision a step farther and incorporate your other senses. The atmosphere is quiet, and peaceful, with shards of glimmering sunshine filtered through the boughs of the trees.
Planning your dream wedding begins with research. Begin by looking through all the embellishments and décor that could be used to enhance and reflect your magical and mythical wedding day. Pinterest is a great place to begin and you may have already started your wedding inspiration boards. You have the ring (and, of course, the love of your life), and now choosing the perfect venue should be the next step in the wedding planning process. Make sure and speak with the event coordinator at the venue and share your vision before making the final decision to book. Ask about the décor at their venue and what items are included in your wedding package of choice.
If you have to book sight-unseen, cross reference the venue’s reviews with photographs. Scout out all the photographs you can find and ask for more, if need be. Of course, the wedding will reflect the love story inspired by a sweet girl and boy, the journey of how they met and fell in love — and the telling of their romance — your romance. And your wedding should be a reflection of that journey.
Woodland weddings can draw upon so many natural resources that can be incorporated into your wedding day. As you look for the centerpiece of the day which is going to be the dress, make sure your choice works well with your wedding theme. aa If you want the fairytale and the princess theme, a romantic Cinderella ballgown, complete with a regal headpiece would be perfect. You might want to forgo the glass slippers in favor of a shoe which will function more readily walking on the forest surface.
Feeling gothic or medieval, again go to your inspiration sources, such as Pinterest, and do the research. A Twilight-inspired theme? Oh my, so much from which to choose. Incorporate textures — moss, ferns, tree stumps, lanterns, evergreen boughs, fairy lighting — can’t you just imagine the mystical and whimsical scenery? And your choice of outdoor wedding venue should have the perfect ceremony site that will only serve to be the platform or foundation of your romance and the wedding theme that you have selected — for your very own once upon a time.
