Au naturel? Yes, for the wedding at least. With Earth Day right around the corner (it is this Sunday..) I figured it was time to go back to our roots in terms of wedding decor so today it’s all about the all natural – earth tones, outdoor weddings, and even some bark place cards!
Seriously though, greenery is not always a part of our wedding plans (except probably for the pictures) but the outdoors can serve as the perfect backdrop for a ceremony and reception. What is so perfect about the outdoors is that your setting can be dressed up or down accordingly. I love the idea of creating an elegant and romantic “earthy” wedding but styling certain pieces like your table setting as though you were in a glamorous country club (check out the place setting below!) You can also pick long bridesmaid dresses to make the atmosphere more formal (I’m keeping with my brown and green palette today with a beautiful dark brown chiffon dress). Remember to blend your touches of elegance with the outdoors (you are after all planning an outdoor wedding!). Fun ways to keep the atmosphere earthy are with these perfect bark place cards and baby plant favors (both below)! And don’t forget the bridal accessories! Instead of a classic veil or sparkling tiara, why not chose a natural wreath or small flower in your hair. Combine these with some fancier decor and before you know it au naturel will be simply gorgeous.. and just in time for Earth Day!
