…And there’s nothing like the power of crisp white tables and chairs on a lush green garden lawn! This Maravilla Gardens Wedding from Ruffled celebrates the wedding day of Matthew and Mara (the blogger behind M Loves M). A vase of blooms in the center of each table adds a lovely floral element that pops against the table’s surface. It’s hard to go wrong with white when you wed in the garden… [photo by Bret Cole]

This September wedding in South Carolina features a black and ivory table scheme and a picturesque tent. When you are surrounded by the natural beauty of green vegetation, using a striking yet neutral color palette can allow the greenery to take center stage. [from Murphy Weddings]

Speaking of ribbons, these silky strands are a natural fit for the serenity and natural beauty of a garden setting. They add just the right amount of festivity, don’t you think? We’re also loving the use of parasols to shade guests from the sun at this Napa Garden Wedding featured on Style Me Pretty… [from Gertrude & Mabel Photography

Remember that just because the wedding occurs in the garden doesn’t mean it has to be formal! There’s nothing like a wedding that reflects the traditions and personal styles of the bride and groom. This Cultural San Antonio Garden Wedding featured on Green Wedding Shoes cleverly incorporated white papel picado decorations overhead, as well as quirky floral arrangements that celebrate interesting color combinations and woodland-style vases. [photo by Our Labor of Love]

Speaking of creativity and personality, don’t hesitate to add special touches that inject a dose of originality while honoring the garden setting.
