Bridal Garden Ideas

Spring is coming and wedding season will soon be in full swing.  I am sensing a trend in this era of cost cutting and economizing that garden weddings (perhaps at cherished family home) are a realistic option for brides.  I have had a couple of clients speak with me about developing thier gardens for upcoming events so I thought I would share some ideas for creating a wedding garden.

1. ) Theme your garden with plants that are named with wedding titles like these….

Calla Lily 'Bridal Bliss', 5. 070108_astilbe, (Astilbe Bridal veil)6. Hosta 'Bridegroom' --- HostasDirect.com, 7. 052708_3, (Poppy Royal Wedding) 8. WEDDING FEAST, (Daylily) 9.

2.) In the spirit of your grow your own and keeping it local, you can plant and harvest these traditional bouquet flowers.

3.) Create a special place specifically for the wedding.   Hotels, restaurants and resort properties should really think about a permanent outdoor place where the wedding ceremony can be held so that there is no travel to the following reception.   Here is an inspiration for a bridal garden.  This was designed by Julie Moir Messervey and Karen McCoy, one of the principals of MSI Design for the Franklin Park Conservancy.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    This star-shaped blossom means both happiness in marriage and a desire to travel, which makes it a sentimental choice not only for the wedding, but also for the honeymoon…
