Gazebo Wedding Decorations
by Giorgina Devereaux
Gazebo wedding decorations are an exceptionally romantic way to make your outdoor wedding special.
Regardless of the size and style of gazebo, you can create a stunning masterpiece for your wedding with various decorating tips.
Before getting started on planning
your gazebo wedding decorations, please consider the following:
Bows: Using pull bows will
enhance the look of your gazebo. Since you are placing bows on a large
structure, consider using larger sized bows.
Candles: Depending on the weather, you may wish to forego real candles and consider using flickering LED candles instead. Candles add romance and beauty to a wedding ceremony as well as the overall décor of the gazebo. The gazebo will look especially beautiful if the ceremony is held during the evening.
Christmas Lights: Another wonderful lighting idea that creates a romantic atmosphere is to intertwine Christmas lights inside tulle that is draped around the wooden pillars. You may also wish to place the lights around the topside of the gazebo for that extra twinkle intertwined with fresh vines and flowers for a soft and intimate look.
Flowers and potted plants add vibrance and color to a gazebo. They are
beautiful and make a breathtaking display.
You may also incorporate flowering
shrubs, rose bushes, or small trees. Flowers can also be added to the roof of
Other ideas include buying small flowerpots to line the aisle of the gazebo and fill them with fresh flowers to provide unity between the flowers that are decorating the gazebo and the aisle.
For added beauty, consider adding vines around the pillars of the gazebo.
Another idea is to consider hanging
pomander balls from the gazebo. Pomander balls can be made from fresh flowers,
silk flowers, or from colorful paper. They look absolutely lovely and add
interest to the overall decor. You may also continue this theme by hanging a
pomander ball on the side of each aisle guest chair.
Garland: To mask
imperfections on a gazebo, consider using garland. You may opt for garland that
matches the season, such as pine cones, berries, or dried maple leaves for the
winter. You can weave multiple strands of garland around the railings, across
the pillars and columns, and you may swag it from the ceiling and roof.
To affix garlands, consider using
clips so as to avoid damaging the gazebo.
Lanterns add a soft glow. You may wish to include old fashioned lanterns
that have interesting shapes for added interest. This type of lighting creates
the perfect ambiance for your ceremony.
Ribbon: A nice touch is to
alternate colored ribbon around the poles. Ribbon is affordable and will add
color to your gazebo. Consider using a thick ribbon and swag it around the
rafters. With a wire based ribbon, you will have the flexibility of having it
conform to the shape you need.
Tulle: You may wish to take
some tulle and wrap it around the poles of the gazebo and weave flowers through
the tulle. Another idea is to drape the tulle over the rafter of the gazebo and
use it as a base to glue decorations to, such as ribbon or other decorative
pieces. Get creative and add flowers to each place where you tack it. If you
are having a beach themed wedding, consider gluing some sea shells there. It’s
your chance to do something unique with your wedding decorations.
These simple tips will
go a long way in helping you make your gazebo look spectacular for your special
day. Gazebo wedding decorations don’t have to be complicated. All it
takes is a little imagination and creativity.
