Beach – In this popular wedding theme, the spotlight is on nature. Keep your decor simple and serene with breezy white linens, white floral arrangements, and natural objects like shells and cobblestones.

Bohemian – A relaxed theme for the backyard, a bohemian celebration is fun, hip, and full of personal style. Screen printed invitations with casual language will make your wedding bohemian from the beginning. Trade a traditional veil for a woven floral crown and ask your bridesmaids to wear mismatched dresses in earthy tones like teal, yellow, and terra cotta. Decorate tables with feathers, air plants, succulents, and lanterns and hang floral arrangements from the trees in macrame planters. String empty picture frames from trees too to create unique portrait opportunities for guests.
