Spring wedding season is in full swing and summer is quickly approaching! A romantic garden wedding theme is the perfect way to incorporate all the beautiful florals that this time of year has to offer. Here, we've gathered some of our favorite tips on how to bring your dream vision to life.

The Ceremony:

1. Create a unique, one-of-a-kind entrance with a petal-strewn aisle:

2. Add lush greenery and a few choice blooms to the arch or chuppah to lend a garden-y oasis feel to your ceremony. Plus, it makes for beautiful photos!

The Details:

3. Use mini vases filled with flowers to create a memorable escort card display. That way, guests can take a piece of your garden home with them!
