1. Decoration – you can use the beauty of the mountain and outdoor as an inspiration of your wedding decoration. Weddings that are done on a mountain can be elegant and romantic, luxurious or just as simple as you want it to be. If the wedding is going to be held outdoor use some creative designs, like string white lights on the trees for a romantic touch.
You can put some tea lights on the tables to have the effects of fireflies while dinning, petals and branches on the walkway or carpet. And at the reception put some nature theme designs like pictures of wild flower on a wooden frame or miniature flowerpots with May seeds.
2. Ceremony – if your wedding is schedule during the day, pick a wedding venue with a breathtaking view like lakes or the ocean. You can also select a place where the sun can be best viewed while setting. Some find it more romantic when the ocean is quite while the sun is setting. Music from a band or orchestra even adds more feelings.
3. Reception – If you have decided your wedding to be done inside a reception hall there are many elements to let the people see the mountain wedding theme. String lights at the ceiling can represent stars at night, use a center piece made of banana leaves, pine needles and wildflowers to have beautiful wedding colors. Table clothes should be chosen carefully also, select earthy colors or burgundy, brown, navy blue or forest green.
In case the reception is done outdoors, select a simple dinner table. Don’t forget to allot some space for the dance floor and a wooden stage for the DJ and band.
