    Picnic Wedding: 15 Ideas + Details for Your Day

    April 13, 2011  10 Comments

    The warm weather is finally here, making me dream of fun, whimsical events of summer – shopping downtown, ice cream cones, backyard barbecues, pool parties, fireworks.. and, one of my favorites – picnics! I typically try to blend my favorite things into weddings, and I think a picnic wedding reception sounds like such a fun idea. If you’re having an outdoor reception this idea would work perfectly. Throw down some blankets, serve up yummy sandwiches, berries, chips, and sodas, and get ready for a casual, relaxed reception with family and friends! Ants not invited. We gathered together 15 of our favorite picnic wedding inspiration, ideas + details to help get your creativity flowing. We hope you enjoy! (P.S. These are also fun ideas for an impromptu “hello, summer!” picnic with friends.)

      Hi Vanessa! I’ve given this a lot of thought and I say, it’s your day – do what makes you happy! However, you may wish to consider a few traditional tables and chairs especially for elderly guests. You want guests to feel comfortable at your wedding. Good luck!
