Romantic Outdoor Wedding Reception Ideas

Jan 29, 2021

Outdoor weddings set the scene for ultimate romance! I mean how much more romantic can you get than dining under the stars alfresco style in the summer months?!

Ok so Britain doesn’t exactly offer guaranteed clear skies and warm temperatures but more and more venues are offering creative back up plans should you not get the weather you want and need to fall back on an alternative.

Outdoor Wedding Setting

Woodland areas with sweeping clear paths, provide the perfect spot to set a banquet style reception that sits amongst the trees. For a rustic finish you might want to consider speaking to local event furniture hire companies to provide rustic tables. For a softer look against nature’s backdrop, use floor length linen. Coloured tablecloths provide a great base layer and can be teamed up with matching or contrasting coloured napkins.

Woodland Wedding Banquet Dining

Lighting – festoons, lanterns and neon

Picking the right mood lighting for your outdoor wedding is key when it comes to setting the scene. Festoon lights strung from end to end of your banquet table will elevate the whole look and come dusk, will bring everything to life. Try wrapping fairylights around trees to frame your location and light up dark corners or feature areas with storm lanterns. Wax effect LED candles are a brilliant choice if you’re worried about real candles blowing out.

Theres a fantastic range of neon signs available on the market right now so if you want to add an edgy feel to your wedding decor, think about customising your look with some neon lighting.

Table Details

Think less picnic and more lavish dining with lots of attention to detail brought through into your table styling. Decorative charger plates instantly offer a feeling of luxury and why stop there? These gold rimmed glasses and gold cutlery pieces will raise your styling to new heights!

Wedding Flowers

Intersperse seasonal blooms throughout your table styling. Depending on the length of your table you might wants to consider using larger floral arrangements to be positioned amongst smaller simple bud vases. These power pastels bring a feminine and uplifting vibe to this wedding reception and is a colour palette perfectly suited to summer weddings.

Accessorise your heart out!

Complete your table with an eclectic mix of accessories. Use an abundance of candlestick holders and tealight holders in a range of complimenting styles to add interest.
