Carla and David’s rustic outdoor wedding PienaarWedding: 12 May 2012
Our Wedding Day
We had a Natural, Rustic outdoor wedding, outside. The colour scheme was Apple Green and Brown. For our flowers we used white Gerberas, and white and green Daisies. White wooden hearts was hanging from trees and the reception balcony. I used green beer bottles with flowers in and fairy lights which hung from the railings. I had a big fairy lights chandelier hanging in the centre of the reception venue. My tables were simple, with a hessian overlay and a small flower arrangement and table placing in the centre and a lantern on each side. For the name tags we used green apples with a paper leave on with the guest’s names. My flower bouquet was of Baby’s breath. When we opened with the first dance, we used green and white balloons which floated around as we danced. We used cupcakes with green and brown ribbons instead of a cake.
Advice to brides to be
This is the one day you should spend on, do not cut down on certain items which you think would be important, however big or small, there is a reason you thought of it in the first place. Don’t spend too much on food for guest if you have snacks for them beforehand. And make sure you have a professional Photographer and Videographer!
