How to Have a Lush Greenhouse Wedding

Do you love the idea of having a lush, outdoor wedding where you and your loved ones are able to be surrounded by nature? Worried about what to do if your wedding day brings stormy weather? You’ll be pleased to know that you can have all of the natural beauty of an outdoor wedding with the security of an indoor venue! The answer to your concerns may be to get married inside of a greenhouse. But what should you keep in mind if you’re interested in planning a greenhouse wedding?

Enjoy The Outside, Indoors

One of the biggest appeals of having a greenhouse wedding is knowing that you’ll be able to enjoy the feeling of a lush, garden wedding without having to worry about the logistics of what you’ll do if the weather doesn’t cooperate with you. This makes it a fantastic choice if your area tends to be rainy or have otherwise unpredictable weather. The other big boon to having a greenhouse wedding is that you can have the feeling of a spring or summer wedding at any time of the year. You’ll feel like you’re in the lush, fairytale garden of your dreams — with the reassurance of a pretty glass roof over your heads and protective walls.

If you wish you could have a summer ceremony but find yourself opting for a winter wedding date thanks to logistics, a greenhouse wedding may be perfect. As they’re set up to keep plants warm all year, or in areas that aren’t the right climate to support them, you know that your guests will be cozy and warm, too! 

Work With The Venue

Chances are, if you’re having a greenhouse wedding, your theme and decor options may be set. You will want to work with your wedding venue’s natural decor instead of against it. This may not be the venue for you if you are planning for a modern, sleek, minimalist vibe for your big day. However if you keep the natural aspects of the venue in mind as you make your decor choices and color palette options, you’re sure to have a breathtaking backdrop to your I Do’s.

Another important aspect to keep in mind is that not all greenhouses are the same and the sort of flora that your venue supports may influence your decorating choices. Your venue may look like a summer garden you might expect to have a tea party in, a tropical wonderland of ferns and brightly colored plants, or even a dessert atmosphere- let that influence your decorating.

Greenhouse Favor Ideas

With your wedding’s built-in natural theme, you’ll be pleased to know that you have some adorable wedding favor options that perfectly match your wedding venue, at a variety of price points. You could send your guests home with packets of seeds for flowers or vegetables that grow well in your area. Or maybe you could send home adorable tiny succulents? If you think your guests may not have green thumbs, you may also opt to send them home with custom tins of herbal teas or cute little jars of raw honey. These natural themed gifts will lead to fond memories for your guests.
