How to Decorate a Gazebo for a Wedding?

You need a picture-perfect gazebo if you want your outdoor wedding to be ready for Instagram. The good news is that there are many ways for you to decorate it. You can be as elaborate or as simple as you want – it all depends on your style or budget.

Here are some tips on how to decorate a gazebo for a wedding:

Hang Greeneries in and Around the Gazebo

Garlands are popular options as gazebo decorations. However, there are many other ways to use greeneries and flowers.

Use Baskets

You can arrange flowers in baskets and hang them around the roof edges. Most gazebos already have hooks in place for these. You can add more depending on how you want to decorate. Just make sure that the flowers match your wedding colors.

Use Pillars

Try renting some pillars or columns. One on either side of the gazebo entrance should be enough.

To complete the decoration, put some oversized flower arrangements on top. You can look at the flower arrangements in church altars for some inspiration.

Use Potted Plants

If you can find some potted plants, you can use them to decorate the gazebo – they can even be used to complement your floral arrangements. They are also more affordable. It is a great way to stretch your wedding budget.

Even better, you can use them even after the wedding. Take them home to liven up your space. They can also serve as a reminder of one of the happiest days of your life.

Use Real or Artificial Flowers

One thing you have to decide is whether to use real flowers or artificial ones. Most people prefer the real deal, but these can be a bit expensive.

If you are looking for a more cost-effective alternative, use fake flowers instead. They may be fake, but they still look nice in pictures and real life.

Decorate Your Gazebo with Some Fabrics

Your gazebo’s transformation won’t be complete without adding some fabrics. Fabric decorations are inexpensive but can give the structure a nice look.

Consider forming panels that surround the entire gazebo. You can also hang fabrics on the ceiling, draping the interior of the structure.

White silk is a common choice of material for most couples. It can make the gazebo look more intimate and elegant. It also goes well with virtually any wedding color.

Hang Some Light Fixtures

If you want to take the wedding atmosphere to the next level,try using lights. Light fixtures can brighten up your gazebo, both literally and figuratively.

If you want to plan an evening wedding or expect the festivities to last until sundown, lighting fixtures are a must.

However, you can do much more than just illuminate the outdoor space. You can use light fixtures to decorate it. There are many ways for you to do this.

Don’t rule out using luminaries or LED candles. You can even hand out sparklers to the guests and make the experience more inclusive. Let your imagination or your budget guide you!
