Spring is here, and with it, one of our favorite types of weddings: the garden wedding. This dreamy setting is filled with all sorts of romantic and whimsical opportunities for garden wedding decorations — pastel palettes, fresh florals, bountiful greenery, succulent plants. It’s basically straight from the pages of your favorite fairytale. As if a garden in itself isn’t magical enough, it takes on an even more enchanting effect when you lend your own touch.

Here’s how to add incredible garden wedding decorations to your outdoor celebration.
