Outdoor Wedding Ceremony Ideas

By Next Big Bridal Blogger finalist, Terrica of Cocktails & Details

Once you decide to have an outdoor wedding ceremony, know that you are not limited to the typical “chair and two altar arrangements” that frequent most outdoor wedding ceremonies. Believe me– you have many gorgeous options available to you, including drapery, arches, seating arrangements and more.

Circular seating offers a new dimension to outdoor weddings that you couldn’t create with an indoor wedding ceremony. With an ornate canopy, the seating arrangement lends itself as additional decor to the area.

This is so simple, but very timeless. The mere draping of the long thick fabric upgrades the tree from just a background piece to a beautiful, incorporation of nature. This is perfect for couples looking for a rustic wedding or a classic natural look.

This is proof that you CAN have a glamorous outdoor wedding. I love the natural branch arch that is glommed up with a chandelier in the center. The large, lush arrangements in the urns add color, while the greenery adds a fullness and garden feel to the ceremony area.

This is is just divine. Aside from the heavily petaled aisle, the gorgeous canopy is comprised of strung florals. With a small chandelier in the center, complementary floral design, and a table for the unity ceremony, not much else is needed for this stunning ceremony centerpiece.

This may be one of my absolute favorites. It takes an existing structure and builds upon it– changing its look by adding sheer drapery, with florals wrapped around the pillar as opposed to traditional arrangements on a structure or in an urn. The chandeliers add a beautiful and elegant touch to the ceremony area.

If your wedding is in a destination where it features some great cultural landmarks, use them as the backdrop for your wedding ceremony. This could be trees, ruins, beaches, buildings, structures, etc. Don’t feel confined– the possibilities are endless!

This is a great example of two inspiration ideas:  suspended decor and adding a touch of whimsical elements. The colorful, ruffled pom poms are hung from an overhead structure, while the urn topiaries and arch greenery add a sweet touch of garden femininity.
