Celebrate wedding at home in the garden – Everything about the tables
Decorating the chairs for the wedding reception
How could you decorate old chairs in the garden? With a simple fine fabric you already make a big difference. But for vintage, linen fabric or lace is also suitable and with macramé you create a touch of boho flair with the garden wedding decoration. You can additionally decorate with flowers, but also simple greenery looks classy, but at the same time simple.
The table decoration in the garden
Meadow flowers or seasonal flowers like lavender, sunflowers and roses are best for the table design. A summer table decoration with lavender, for example, exudes a special romanticism due to the delicate purple tones and can be combined with green elements, optionally in pastel green or a stronger olive green, for example. Vases made of glass, boxes made of wood or wire baskets (e.g. made of chicken wire for rustic flair) are perfect as containers. Also feel free to decorate with wooden discs , terrariums, candles or lanterns, birdcages or glass bells.

Ideas for the trees or pergola
Have a few shade trees spread around the wedding tables, be sure to use them for the garden wedding decor! And what better way than hanging wedding decorations for outside? Tie vases with small bouquets on string and hang them on the branches or choose lanterns instead, which you can also fill with flowers or else with candles. Even vintage picture frames are a wonderful and effective idea.
A pergola can also be used for this purpose. Glass balls look classy and can dangle in different shapes, sizes and heights directly above the table. We leave the choice of filling material to you.
Or decorate the tree trunks! Fairy lights work just as well as photos of the bride and groom from vacations together, everyday life, or parties and other moments you’ve spent together so far. They illustrate the first years of their happy relationship.
Garden wedding decoration – the wedding altar with beautiful background or arch
One of the most important areas is the one where the wedding ceremony will take place. Therefore, you should also pay special attention to it. A beautiful background or frame and abundant flowers will make it the focal point of the wedding in the garden and rightly so – after all, that’s where you give them the important word of yes.
The path to the altar can be decorated with planted barrels, a carpet, flowers and garlands and much more. Also use the guests’ chairs that have been placed to set the scene garden wedding decorations.
Use what you have instead of spending unnecessary money on decorative elements. A large tree makes the perfect backdrop for the wedding ceremony if you decorate it with simple fabric. Even old ladders are ideal for creating an arch under which you can say “I do”. And you can use the steps to place vases, lanterns or other decorations, while rungs can be decorated with garlands, ribbons and fabrics.
Garden wedding decorations with lighting for a romantic atmosphere
Your celebration will probably last into the night. Therefore, you should also think about optimal lighting. It should not be too bright, but rather somewhat dimmed and romantic – just suitable for the occasion! Fairy lights and lanterns create just the right combination of both, with the former even giving the appearance of fireflies visiting your garden.
