Who can resist the fragrant herbs, the damp earth, and the popping colors of blossoming flowers? That's probably why you've chosen a garden wedding. In this Wedding Themes Garden Wedding guide you'll find everything you need for your special day. We have all the bases covered, from the bridal shower to the reception. Marry the man of your dreams in a floral wonderland of a garden wedding, a simultaneously traditional and unique wedding theme for the bride who appreciates the beauty of the past and the innovation of the present.
Be they roses, daffodils, calla lilies, or even cherry blossoms, gorgeous flowers are essential to the garden wedding, and that's why this list is stuffed full of them. The beauty of the garden wedding is that you don't have to pick two or three flowers and stick with them; you can go absolutely nuts and choose any and every flower you desire. Because this theme allows for so much variety, there is also no real need for a color scheme. However, you can still choose to feature your favorite colors and build the wedding within that scheme, if that's what you want. You're the bride, and that power is yours! Just remember not to skip the greenery; the garden theme depends on it!

The fun part about having a wedding theme is that it isn't just confined to the ceremony and reception. You get to design your stationery and pre-wedding events around that theme, as well. For the perfect garden wedding, it's essential to have all of your bases covered. Planning a wedding might seem overwhelming at first, but the excitement of making all of the decisions and building everything from the ground-up, much like a garden, should outweigh the stress. Now, let's make it fun.

Some of your duties as a bride are to hand out favors to your guests at a bridal shower (and sometimes even the wedding itself!) and to give each member of your bridal party a thank-you gift for being so helpful throughout the whole process. After all, you love your guests; it's just sometimes difficult to pin down exactly what to give out at a garden wedding. We've compiled a few ideas here for you, from big to small. If you're not holding the garden wedding, and are simply a guest, this might also help you decide on a wedding gift for the lovely couple. They'll be so touched that you took the time to choose a present reflective of your wedding choice.
