Inspiration for an Elegant Outdoor Wedding

If you’re planning a wedding during peak wedding season, consider choosing an outdoor location. The setting provides beauty in itself, you can accommodate more guests and it can set the tone for the type of wedding you’re dreaming of. Today we’re sharing inspiration for an elegant outdoor wedding that is so lovely you’ll be longing for an outdoor wedding venue after one look!

Colors of Simplicity + Elegance

The color palette for an elegant outdoor wedding is simple – bring in the the colors of nature and pair them with black and white. It’s a palette that is both classic and tasteful.

Crisp black linens, white florals and clean white and black stationery are perfect choices for this theme. Incorporate your palette into the entirety of your day, including your ceremony backdrop and attire. Who doesn’t love a bride and groom in classic black and white? You can’t go wrong with a color palette that accents the nature that surrounds your elegant outdoor wedding.

Choosing Your Venue

When scouting locations for your elegant outdoor wedding, there are certain types of spaces that are fail safe. Check out local country clubs and golf courses for venues with expansive greenery and great places to host an elegant wedding under a big white tent.

You can also look to your favorite restaurants or venues with terraces, gardens or rooftop loft spaces that would accommodate the size of your wedding. When looking at venues, consider the natural decor they include – a gorgeous vine covered wall on a terrace makes a lovely photo backdrop, or a large expanse of green makes for wonderful group photos.

Classic Patterns and Textures

Your elegant outdoor wedding is perfect for classic textures and patterns. Mix and match stripes and damask or arabesque type patterns for a look that complements the rest of your wedding style. Incorporate these patterns in the table covers, too. Striped tablecloths in the cocktail area create extra visual interest and patterned linens at the place settings add an unexpected pop of fun at the table.

Be mindful when choosing textures as well. Classics like linen and chiffon can add a little something extra to your venue. Chiffon draped at the altar looks lovely when paired with some green garland, and gray or white linen table coverings add some extra impact to the space.

No matter how you design your elegant outdoor wedding, you can be sure you’ll have a beautiful setting for your special day and memories to last a lifetime.
