One of the greatest benefits of getting married outside is the free use of Mother Nature’s décor elements. Trees are especially enchanting and with a touch of decoration, they can become quite the focal piece – here are some decorative ideas:

  • Drape the tree in long lengths of soft flowing fabric like chiffon or silk – also ideal as alternative gazebo under which to say your “I dos”.
  • Hang little bird cages and origami birds from the tree branches.
  • Lights are always enchanting, especially fairy lights and candle lanterns.
  • Cover the tree trunk and branches in a waterfall of stunning fresh flowers, or hang flower orbs or wreaths from the branches.
  • Turn the tree into a collage by pinning your favourite couple photos to the trunk.
  • Alternatively, make a literal family tree with photos of all your family members.
  • Hang glass bottles from the branches filled with either candles or fresh blossoms.
  • Opt for a selection of Chinese lanterns in varying shapes and sizes.
  • Go the surrealistic route by hanging unusual items like chairs, books and colourful cushions from the trees.
  • Outdoor hanging chandeliers are fast becoming the next big thing, so hang these from the branches.
  • Create a fun outdoor photo booth by suspending large picture frames from the branches.
  • For a vintage feel decorate the trees with colourful bunting or strings of pearls.
  • Decorate the trees with long dangling strings of prettiness – for instance hanging crystals, paper cutouts or flowers.
