It is a rather amazing experience for couples to walk down an aisle accompanied by the sights and sounds of nature. Places like Dwight Mission provide a relaxing and stunningly beautiful atmosphere for guests to enjoy; there is plenty of space for kids to play ; and they provide a picture perfect photo backdrop for one of the most important days of your life.
Don't take our word for it, www.weddingwire.com is one of the leading bridal sites on the internet. Check out these top 5 reasons why you you should have a garden wedding.
1. Your flowers are already there!
Walking down the aisle in a garden lets you forego the floral setup. A garden wedding means you’re already surrounded by beautiful flowers and other greenery. You won’t need to bring flowers in to put at the end of the pews or surround you and your beloved. Instead, the natural beauty serves as the ambiance for the wedding. The same goes for the reception. If you have an outdoor reception in a places like the Dwight Mission Creek Chapel, centerpieces can be understated because the natural greenery, rocky landscape and the water have done the decorating work for you.
2. It lets you show off your love of nature
Oklahoma is a great place to do this. If you’re getting married in a garden, chances are you love the outdoors. Few places have weater that allows for an outdoor wedding in the fall! A garden setting allows for a more natural aesthetic for your ceremony and reception, and gives your wedding a much more relaxed feel than a traditional ballroom.
3.Your photos will be filled with color.
You may be in all white, but your photos will feature the bright pinks, oranges and purples found in the flowers of a garden. You can’t get much prettier than a couple kissing for the camera surrounded by the bountiful blossoms and lush greenery of a garden.
4. It offers an intimate space for a wedding.
Most garden venues are on the smaller side (There’s not a lot of room for chairs on either side of a temporary aisle) so a wedding among the flowers will be a small one. If you and your betrothed want a small wedding that also offers all the benefits of a beautiful outdoor space, a garden wedding could be the way to go.
5. It’s a child-friendly venue.
If you’re welcoming nieces, nephews and other kids to your wedding, a garden is certainly a fun place for them to frolic. Guests won’t need to worry about sticky fingers in a fancy ballroom or loud crying in a church. At a garden wedding, kids will have room to spread out.
