Blending together different themes and styles is our favorite way to achieve a unique, one-of-a-kind look on your wedding day. In this look, we’ve taken a dash of timeless elegance and mixed it with natural details for a look we’re calling, Garden Grace.

The Invitation
Of course, we like to start with the invitation. Yes, we admit we’re stationery addicts but remember – your invitation is the first impression your guests have of your wedding day, so it’s a natural place to start. The moment we laid eye on this new Adorned Deckle Wedding Invitation, our minds began racing with the type of wedding we’d build around this gorgeous ribbon invitation. The deckle-edge paper stock with its gold accents is so soft and creamy; it just exudes elegance. This pretty invite can be personalized in one of four ribbon colors. For this look, we chose the sage green color called “garden”. It literally ties the entire look together!

The Palette
The color palette for a garden-inspired wedding day can go in so many directions. You could choose a very colorful palette with bright hues or a monochromatic vibe with various shades of pink or purple. For a look that’s more refined, we love the sage green, creamy ecru and brass gold featured here. Style your bridesmaids in shades of sage and have them carry bouquets of cream roses. Use greenery like eucalyptus and lambs ear on tables and in vases. Tastefully incorporate green into your bridal jewelry and have your groom wear a sage-colored tie. Finally, use gold accents in unexpected places (just look at that cake!) to ramp up the glam factor.

The Venue
Choosing your venue for a garden-themed wedding seems simple, right? A garden! But practically speaking, a garden wedding is not always feasible. Often garden venues do not have a backup option for inclement weather or are so small they may not fit all of your guests. If you can’t locate your dream garden, consider a venue such as atrium, indoor garden conservatory, or even a lobby of an upscale office building or hotel that is full of greenery and skylights. Talk to your wedding planner or other brides in your area for advice and ideas you may not have considered.
