1. Choose the Perfect Venue

Obviously, one of the most important aspects of your romantic and whimsical outdoor wedding is the outdoor venue! There are so many options for outdoor venues, and whether you’re looking for a garden, meadow, river, or mountain, you can be sure to find the perfect venue using The Pink Bride’s handy Venue Lookbook!

Something to consider when planning an outdoor wedding is what your backup options are in case there is inclement weather. Try to find a venue that has a great outdoor space for your Plan A ceremony, but also an indoor space you could use for a Plan B ceremony, if necessary. Having a backup also reduces your wedding day stress, which is always a win!

2. Don’t Forget the Flowers!

For a wedding to have the whimsical look, lots of flowers are a must! Consider flowers that are light colored and delicate to really up that romance factor, and then put them everywhere you can! Overflowing centerpieces, floral arches, flower crowns, and anything else you can think of! They create such a beautiful and lively look that we totally love!

3. Find Your Ideal Hairstyle

There are so many options for your romantic wedding day hairstyle! The most important thing to consider is your personality and your comfort. You want to choose a style that you love and that will last throughout your wedding! Styles can vary from long and loose to short and sassy, but your confidence is what makes it fitting for your wedding look. And of course, adding some more flowers to your hairstyle is just the cherry on top!

4. Rock a Gorgeous Gown!

Picking the right gown can really bring your outdoor wedding to the next level! We are obsessed with the gowns in this photoshoot, all from The Bridal Cottage, and all absolutely stunning! Details like lace backs or delicately beaded bodices are great choices for this style wedding, and a court length train is so elegant.
