Creating a summery wild flower wedding is the perfect way to celebrate your love of nature and the great outdoors. With beautiful blooms, rustic details, and whimsical touches, you can create a truly unique and memorable event that captures the beauty and joy of the season. In this blog, we’ll share some tips and ideas for creating a beautiful and unforgettable wild flower wedding.
The first step in creating a summery wild flower wedding is to choose the perfect venue. Look for a venue that has a rural, rustic, natural feel, and plenty of outdoor space for your guests to enjoy. A barn, a farm or even a teepee in the countryside can be an ideal location, as all of these provides a beautiful backdrop for your wild flower arrangements and allows you to incorporate the surrounding landscape into your decor.
Creating the wild flower theme
Wild flowers are the perfect choice for a summer wedding. They can be as bright or muted as you wish and have a natural, rustic charm that fits perfectly with a garden or nature-inspired theme. We love to use British-grown flowers at Mamas That Flower, from local flower farmers, such as lovely Maria at Tangle and Wild Staplefield, especially in the summer season when the choices of ingredients are vast and are then able to create stunning displays, which can all add to the English wild flower countryside vibe.
Focus on Statement Displays
One way to make your wild flower arrangements really stand out is to focus on statement displays. This could be a beautiful asymmetric floral arch at the entrance to your ceremony, a hanging installation above your reception tables. These statement displays will add drama and beauty to your event and make your wild flower arrangements truly unforgettable.
Incorporate Meadows and Natural Elements
In addition to wild flowers, incorporating meadows and other natural elements into your decor can help create a beautiful and whimsical atmosphere. Imagine wooden boxes lining your aisles packed with florals, or a statement meadow runner in front of the ceremony table. Consider using natural materials like wood, hessian, and twine for your table settings, and incorporate elements like festoon lighting, lanterns, hay bales, old crates or wild grasses to create a natural and rustic look. All this can transform the mood of your wedding, create a cosy and intimate atmosphere.
Add Bright Ingredients and Textures
To really capture the summery, wild flower feel, consider adding bright ingredients and textures to your event. This could mean using bright oranges, blues, corals, touches of pink. The wild flower theme is the perfect excuse to go bold in your floral arrangements. Also incorporating texture with your ingredients with delicate ammi, height with feathery delphiniums, bouncy scabiosa and cosmos, dainty daisies, and our personal favourite petal perfection, Dahlia’s.
Thinking also of the non floral elements like adding pops of colour with brightly coloured linens, tableware/glassware or candles.
Creating a summery wild flower wedding is all about capturing the natural beauty of the season and creating a relaxed and joyful atmosphere for you and your guests. With these tips and ideas, you can create a truly unique and unforgettable event that celebrates your love of nature and the great outdoors.
