Unfortunately, these preconceptions keep the mind of the modern bride locked.

This post is for newlyweds who are having a summertime wedding and need some fresh inspiration for the décor arrangements. Whether you’re planning the reception outdoors, or in a fancier local, these ideas can work equally well. The important thing is to adapt these arrangements to the exact formality, theme and color scheme of the wedding.
We are big fans of summer outdoors receptions because they always feature a unique theme or an eye-catchy color palette. It’s quite flattering to assist to a nature-inspired wedding. The landscape in summer is charming and easy to use for your own wedding inspiration. We’ve noticed that it’s hip to use a simple style for the centerpieces and décor arrangements.
It’s not trendy anymore to compose elaborated settings and create pompous decorations for the party. The more simplistic and light the décor is the more chance the couple will obtain a modern elegant event. The accent falls especially on a unique color combo and also on a central motif. Pick a theme – one that reflects your personality or taste in fashion, beauty and style or one that simply captures the essence of the season or wedding venue. Then see what motifs are there to squeeze from and incorporate throughout the entire wedding.
The essential is to use the same coloring and line for all wedding supplies. This ensures good quality and coherency for your wedding. The details are the ones that count the most. So we suggest you invest more in the accessories or accents you’re using for the tables and other decorations. We’re also happy to see that hanging decors are becoming more and more popular. All kinds of recipients and vases are used for both the table scapes and ceilings or trees – if the wedding takes place outside.
You too can use Mason jars or gem jars, colored bottles, antique urns and other vases, vintage tea cups and tins, sugar jars, birdcages, glass and bowl containers, wood and birch recipients, etc. It depends on the theme you’re featuring. You can pick any decorative item and spray-paint it in the colors of the wedding to suit the wedding theme or style.
Take a look at the bottle service displayed in the first picture. These bottles look like high-quality porcelain pieces, but they are from an inexpensive glass container collection. These items are painted in white to suit the wedding style. Don’t they look fashionable? In the second image we find a nice setting for a tea service. Create a tea station after dinner and bring aromatic herbs for your guests’ special tea treat. Your invitees can select their favorite aroma. Check out the flower cookies and the yellow-white flower centerpieces in the next photos.
We’ve noticed that autumn weddings are becoming more and more popular. There is a beautiful trend these days with outdoors events and the rustic style is the most sought-after it seems. This is good news for those who are thinking of spending the wedding day somewhere outside the doors.
The range of themes available for this style is wide and very generous. If you want your alfresco wedding to feel warm, cozy and relaxing, plan it in an early autumn day. At the end of August or even in September the weather is more indulgent and appropriate for a comfortable ceremony and reception outdoors. The sun is still shining brightly and the atmosphere is not too hot and not too cold either.
It’s the perfect time to plan a romantic and inviting wedding. The nature is changing its colors and this is why it’s a great idea to take it all outdoors. The project we have for you today is from a southern wedding, inspired by the equestrian style. The bride and the horse is one of the hottest themes right now, especially for western and countryside weddings.
We’ve seen many projects featuring this style and the results were pretty fabulous. We are convinced many brides will find themselves in these pictures or wish to use this concept for their own wedding. We like all the decorations used for this setting. The flowers used for the bride’s hair, bouquet and groom’s boutonnieres look sensational! The flower wreath she wears is simply breathtaking. The flowers are silk-like and this is why they look so perfect together.
The vibrant colors capture the richness of autumn and play in beautifully. One can recognize a wedding designed with love and passion, and this one is surely of this kind. The results are phenomenal and we are very excited to share with you these photos. There are many rustic and vintage elements of décor incorporated here. However, the style is pretty simple and clean. This is what guarantees the chic appeal of this wedding.
The more simplistic and natural the décor arrangements are the more beautiful, expressive and inspiring the shoot will be. So, when planning an outdoors wedding, let the nature inspire you and keep it all as organic and fresh as possible. Use seasonal flowers or wildflower assortments to create a more whimsical effect and bold colors recommended by the time of the year.
Autumn is the season of harvest and abundance and everything is bountiful. Make sure you reflect that in your wedding. Use antique vases and china, classic glassware and tea cups to create a timelessly elegant setting. We like the wooden elements used for the tables and chairs. The hanging box archway looks whimsically romantic.
The location one chooses for the wedding is one of the most important coordinates to take care of. You have to be very careful when making this selection because it will influence many aspects of the wedding, like the formality, the theme and the color-palette.
We know many couples who have decided to build their wedding around a theme or a beautiful venue. And there are many examples in this regard. If we think bout it, each place has a special vibe and it requires for a special theme or formality. For instance, an orchard wedding calls for a fruit theme, a countryside wedding offers great inspiration for the rural and western style, while a vineyard celebration can be decorated with wine bottles and burgundy flowers.
As you can see, taking cues from the venue is a serious and important thing to do. And modern couples have lots of unique choices in this sense.

What better inspiration to draw for a countryside wedding than a farmhouse? We like the fact that these newlyweds use fruits and vegetables for the menu but also in the centerpieces.
Tomatoes, garlic, apples, pears and lemons – these are the elements that keep this wedding looking fresh, juicy and organic. The results are pretty stunning! They also included flowers and gift bags in the table arrangements and obtained a fun, cheerful and rich effect. There is no better way to go when planning an outdoor wedding at a farmhouse than the organic way. The natural style is a must when we’re dealing with such rustic locations.
It’s important to keep the arrangements and the menu light and simplistic. The colors should be as vivid as possible, so that the atmosphere to be inviting and warm for the guests. This reception is full of organic things and this is why we recommend this project especially to those who are thinking of going eco-friendly on their wedding.
The flowers – in yellow and green were placed in birch recipients and this wood vibe feels enchanting. Use daises, hydrangeas, garden roses, Billy Balls, dahlias, peonies, chrysanthemums, gerberas, lilacs, pansies, narcissuses, zinnias and other wildflowers to create similar or more impressive arrangements for your own ceremony and reception.
When we look at the gorgeous bouquets we’ve posted below we wonder if there is a woman out there who doesn’t like peonies!

Choosing a beautiful location for the wedding is one of the keys to success. And contemporary newlyweds have lots of unique choices in this regard. It all depends on their budget, on their personality and on their vision. The theme you picked can influence the wedding venue and vice versa.
In many cases, the couple falls in love with a unique place and then decides to plan the wedding around the vibe and flair the place transmits. For instance, an orchard location calls for a lot of fruits and vegetables. A vineyard wedding requires a burgundy or plum theme, and so on. We’re happy to present you here a few of our favorite decorations for a barn wedding.
This venue is ideal for those who love the rural side and wish to incorporate more rustic elements in the décor. The barn locations can be found anywhere in the countryside or outside the city. You can rent a barn or use your friend’s property. If you can’t find a real barn, you can choose a farmhouse or a ranch and plan a unique setting in or outdoors.
The greatest thing of all nowadays is that you can pick any theme and use it for any type of location. You don’t have to plan a beach wedding for instance to use the ocean theme. The same thing is true for the barn style. Use the rustic flair to create a specific wedding on an open field, in a forest or even in your backyard! The results will be fascinating, we can assure you of that.
All you need is the right ingredients to make it look thematic and unified. The décor also has to be cohesive and well-balanced. Don’t use too many elements or different colors but keep it simple. Simple is chic and fun and also more versatile. Why plan a pompous wedding when you have the chance to play it cozy and smooth and refined in the same time?
The elegant factor must go together with the comfort factor so that you can obtain a flattering atmosphere for your guests. Everyone enjoys a beautiful wedding outdoors or in the countryside. The air is fresh, the landscape is natural and unique and the sun is warm. Use specific elements, like wood, branches, twigs, stones, wildflowers and other seasonal leaves, herbals and greeneries to make the wedding feel fresher and more organic.
You can plan an organic look or a luxurious wedding, depending on the effect you want to create. Use homemade decorations or home-baked cookies and desserts. You can even make the cake in your home and flatter your invitees with something fluffy and deliciously natural. The recipients you’re using for the flowers are also a key.

This post is for all brides & grooms who are lucky to be planning a modern reception outdoors and now are seeking for unique inspiration in this sense. We have a beautiful proposal to make to you today: a birch theme. This style is definitely one that can be integrated in the big family of rustic wedding themes.
Many couples of today are drawn to the open fields and natural venues in the countryside. However, it is not mandatory at all to go in the country to plan a rustic inspired wedding. You can use this theme anywhere else, even indoors! We’ve seen lots of unique natural projects designed for indoors and they looked stunning.
The idea of bringing the outdoors inside and vice versa is one of the hottest ideas our designers came up with in the last years. We are big fans of the eclectic style and we think this is the best approach for a modern wedding. The theme you pick has to be versatile and malleable, so that you may use it according to your preferences and also to fit the rigors of the formality and tastes of your guests.
You must satisfy different opinions and modern standards and this is why it is more indicated to go for a versatile theme. Don’t be afraid to combine the natural and the glamorous, or the comfortable and the elegant in your wedding. We’ve seen it done before and we can assure you the results are fabulous!
Who wouldn’t want to attend a party that feels unique, cozy and also romantic? The outdoors locations are becoming more and more popular. Even the most hidden places and unusual venues are nowadays exploited by our designers nowadays for weddings. The birch theme is one of our favorites so far.
It is chic, rustic, wild and very elegant. Who would have thought that you can have the possibility to incorporate elements of birch in your wedding as a trendy motif and obtain such cool results? Just look at these pictures and convince yourself that this style is worth taking into consideration for a wedding. You can use birch instead of tradition recipients for the flowers, for candles, for the altar decoration and also for the reception tables and plates. Use birch as card holders, unique vases, boxes and seating cards.
You can even incorporate real birch in your wedding invitations! This design is great for late summer time weddings, for fall and even for winter seasons. Use birch in combination with forest leaves, stones, branches & twigs and other wooden elements. Steal the details you like from these decorations. Use the photos we’ve posted here for your own inspiration and then share your favorites or your own!
This post is special because it features lots of unique elements of décor a modern couple can choose or get inspired from for their own wedding. These photos are from a fabulous multicultural wedding project that includes accents from the India. This culture is sophisticated and complex.
The myriad of bold colors used for these settings is the thing that captivated our attention in the first place. There is a rich vibe in here that we like very much and so we’ve decided to share these images with you. Those who want a cheerful party will certainly love the idea of using more colors and different exotic accessories.
The Indian themes are ideal for ample weddings planned outdoors. You can create a big tent and set it somewhere on an open field, in a forest or even in a large backyard. All you need is a clean green open space to do it. The tent can be white or colored. You should choose the colors according to the theme, color-scheme and formality of the wedding.
The location might also influence you in this regard. For instance, if you’re going for a vineyard wedding, then you can use more purple, burgundy, plum and wine nuances. On the other hand, if you’re going for a countryside wedding you can choose the rustic theme and incorporate more brown and wood elements in the décor.
One of the central motifs used in this reception is the lantern. We can find lots of other exotic elements of décor incorporated in the table arrangements, like treasure boxes, antique vases, gold statues, peacock feathers, colored candles and artistic candle votives.
We adore the rainbow color-scheme used for this party. It looks fresh, vibrant and eccentric. We like the fact that although many bold hues are used, the effect is not ostentatious or heavy on the eye. It is not strident but eclectic and still very elegant looking. The flowers add the most beautiful and romantic pops of color in the centerpieces. We fancy the Indian fabric in black and gold used for the chairs.
The tablecloth features a pearl gray shade that looks very sleek and luxurious. This combination between rich seasonal colors, golden shades and dark hues is pretty whimsical. The fanciful look of this wedding can be very appealing to the glamorous brides & grooms who want a dramatic reception.
The blending between the outdoors setting and the glittering decorative items is very sophisticated and versatile. The bride’s traditional Indian dress and jewelries complete the exotic vibe of the wedding. This project is ideal for summertime, but it can also suit an early fall wedding. The rich colors make us believe that. What do you think of this concept?
