Picture the gardens you have read about in classic British literature; Jane Austen’s lush and romantic scenery, Wordsworth’s descriptions of natural beauty, and even a humorous garden scene or two from Shakespeare. An English garden is undeniably beautiful and romantic, so allow it to be the inspiration for your ideal spring wedding! We love the look of an elegant and nature-inspired garden party theme, and this wedding at Marblegate Farm may make you inclined to agree with us!

Lavish Decor

The perfect English garden party inspired wedding will be a healthy mix of lavishness and an appreciation of natural beauty. This wedding is just that! Mixing an extravagant crystal chandelier with the more understated and earthy accents creates the perfect look. Combine traditional elements, like a white tiered cake, with lush greenery and florals to pull everything that is great about an English garden together. It’s a delicate task to create this look without overdoing one or the other, but this wedding pulls it off perfectly!

Romantic Attire

Again, to pull this theme off there must be a good mix of grandiose and of soft beauty. A lace dress similar to this one is the perfect choice for a garden wedding; it has a light and airy feel while still being incredibly elegant. There isn’t only one style of dress for an elegant garden party however, any dress that is comfortable, classy, and that makes you feel beautiful is the perfect dress for this theme!

Your Ladies and Gentleman in Waiting

As you probably know, there are many reasons that your bridesmaids and groomsmen are such an important part of pulling off your wedding! Besides all the work they do and the love and support they give, they are also a key part of the visual aspect of the wedding. To put it simply, their outfits have to be on point! For the elegant garden theme, you can’t go wrong with the men in classic black suits and the women in soft colors like lavender, blush, powder blue, or champagne.

The Garden Itself

It’s hard to have a great English garden party inspired wedding without the garden! Choosing a venue like Marblegate Farm that already has an established and beautiful outdoor area is key in pulling off your garden wedding. Next, you want to plan your wedding decor in a way that is in balance with the mood of the garden. This wedding does this perfectly: the seating and dining setup is a mix of luxurious finery and a complement of the environment surrounding it.
