Country garden weddings are still as popular as ever amongst couples and we can certainly see why. They’re elegant, feminine and the perfect choice for a spring or summer soirée. They can also be adapted to suit your preferred style, whether that’s romantic and rustic, or enchanting with a touch of fairy tale magic. However, today we’re taking a look at modern country garden wedding ideas, focusing on a muted palette with a minimalist vibe.
A modern country garden wedding theme should be light and airy, while embracing the natural beauty of your venue and its surroundings. Opt for a venue that is graced with plenty of beautiful outdoor space and gardens. Not only will this provide an incredible backdrop for your photographs, it will offer you the chance to have your ceremony outside in the sunshine. It also means your guests will be able to enjoy drinks and canapés, while soaking up the romance of your country garden wedding venue.

Let’s kick things off with your wedding ceremony. As mentioned, you may be lucky enough to be planning a pretty outdoor wedding ceremony in a lovely country garden – perfection! However, you can easily bring the outdoors in, by decorating a wooden archway with handfuls of foliage and greenery. Work in delicate white blooms for that country garden feel. You can also adorn wooden signs with foliage and flowers – a wonderful way to display your wedding day timings, directions or to let your guests know about your wedding hashtag when they arrive at the venue.
For your aisle, we adore the thought of tying bunches of foliage and flowers to white wooden chairs. This is a super pretty way to add a modern country garden feel to your ceremony and it’ll transform any space.
A country garden wedding venue often lends itself beautifully to a marquee, which is a lovely option for your reception and there are so many divine ways to decorate the space to suit your theme. A hanging chandelier entwined with foliage and white flowers will instantly add a touch of modern luxe to your marquee. Match your centrepieces to the chandelier, by filling metallic bowls full of greenery and handfuls of flowers. If you’re having long tables, opt for floral garlands instead.

When it comes to your wedding stationery, we suggest keeping it simple, stylish and understated. Crisp white paper with elegant calligraphy is all you need to let your guests know about your very stylish nuptials. Maintain the same design throughout the whole of your day to ensure a look that is sophisticated and totally coordinated.
For your modern country special day theme, we suggest choosing a semi-naked wedding cake adorned with oversized ivory blooms and a simple cake topper. This will modernise a traditional ‘rustic’ wedding cake, making it the perfect fit for your celebration. If you’re not a fan of naked wedding cakes, opt for a delicately marble iced cake decorated with trailing greenery.
A modern country garden wedding is the perfect combination of elegance and style. It’s official, we are smitten with this stunning theme!
