The saying goes, “you are what you choose for yourself.” and if the occasion is your wedding, you can’t help but settle for nothing less than perfect. Well, each couple is different and so are their preferences, the wedding is a really private affair that only demands nothing but the love birds to decide where they want to settle down! An intimate wedding at a backyard with a pinch of minimal decor and fun, or a grand celebration in a lavish hotel’s ballroom with something luxe and extravagant, you just need your big day to be an event for a lifetime that you, your partner, and your guests would love to cherish forever!
So, what’s your favorite style of wedding? No matter your preferences differ from each other, but the one thing that remains constant is your timeless love. And as time is changing at a rapid pace, the idea of a sustainable wedding is becoming popular among the brides of today who want to look elegant but being within the budget, that too without creating much adverse effect to nature. Have you ever calculated the overall estimate of the fabric used in creating a fresh wedding gown? Do not forget that you will be needing the matching accessories, veil, and shoes, along with the classy arrangements made for your guests, starting from invites, drinks on the cocktail hour, setting up the dance floor, the menu on the food counter, and decking up the dessert table! But what about your budget? It is something very much personal, just like your love story, and no matter how grand your big day would appear, there is no use if you end up being worried about the expenses and curtail your basic essentials for the next months just to fill up your bank account! So, an ideal strategy is to look for all the options that suit you in every context and then pick the one that turns out to be the best fit for both of you!
Pre-owned designer wedding dresses, minimalistic decor, and digital invites are some of the trends couples are loving nowadays. And the idea is being cost-effective and focusing on what is more important! Putting a hefty price on the wedding gown is not attracting anyone. Instead putting that amount on one’s newly married life is a new normal! And being practical, no one likes to spend their hard-earned on just one day, especially when there are ways where you can get the same fun and ambiance without investing much.
Like every other bride, you might also have some plans for your wedding to make it remarkable. How about planning a picturesque outdoor wedding in the mountains and share an amazing and adventurous experience with your wedding guests? Isn’t it dreamy? Small weddings are on the rise as couples seek to make their weddings more personal and intimate. Though serene, isolated beaches are very popular, what could be dreamier than getting married on a mountaintop, surrounded by all of nature’s glory? Put the charisma and romance aside, the photographs that you are going to steal are something exceptional! This is the reason mountain weddings make a unique alternative to the standard beach destination wedding. Regardless to say, jaw-dropping wedding photos are on the top of the wish list of every bride and groom. And there’s no better way to use this tranquil and romantic location as a gorgeous backdrop. It’s no surprise since mountains make spectacular backgrounds for even the simplest of chic weddings- from intimate moments to silly couple poses to candid group shots, the mountain weddings are sure to inspire and awe.
Though the ultimate choice is yours, the concept of getting married in the mountains is simply mesmerizing, and truly intimate, that you rarely find at any of the hotel, barn, or ballroom wedding! So, before you start filtering your wedding checklist, just look for the ideas to add some thrill to your love story- simply memorable for the generations to come. Whether you’re having a ceremony on a snowy peak or a rustic indoor reception, finding some amazing mountain wedding ideas is never a bad idea.
If you aren’t putting the right amount of sweetness in your batter, you cannot bake an awesome scrumptious cake. The same goes for the wedding theme that deserves a unique proportion of all the basic essentials, from decor to theme, your favorite playlist, and the best-fit dress to decking you up in a perfect bridal look! Your mountain wedding is also a completely different experience and to make the most of it, you must be prepared in advance. For any uncertain things that happen, you can’t afford to ruin your big day fiesta, be it with your favorite bunch of people by your side as you exchange vows or just two of you to enjoy your mountain-esque wedding while your excited pals are waiting for you for the reception in the evening! In either way, you have to plan your big day with no scope of flaws. Let’s read how-
Starting from your dress to the decor, the wedding is all about the details. Because this is the only thing that reflects on your wedding pictures. The cake will be cut and the flowers on the wedding arch will fade soon, but the only constant thing that remains with you is the heartwarming wedding album showcasing countless memories and moments of togetherness that you have saved with you forever! Whether capped with snow or covered with wildflowers, the mountains are nothing short of majestic for your big day pictures. For the special occasion of love, all of us want to take an escape from the city and venture to a mile-high landscape for a mountain-themed wedding! With so many scenic views to take a stroll and pose around, your mountain wedding creates the most gorgeous natural backdrop for the wedding photo experts.
If you have an in-built desire to add fun to everything that you do, your wedding is the occasion to incorporate all your creativity and adventure into it. Want to be swept off your feet all over again? Hop on a ski lift with your love for a unique photo-op that takes your wedding photos to new heights and your love factor to a different zone. Well, you might need something to show your couple goals to the world, and now is the time girl! With nothing but peaks and valleys for miles, dive dip into the dense wonderland of romance and love and find out ways to map out some pretty epic shots. Added bonus for sure! A dramatic fun around with your love and a postcard-worthy view! What else do you need at this moment of love!
If you have planned your entire wedding ceremony in the mountains, let your guests also feel the charisma of this panoramic beauty, along with capturing the two beautiful faces smitten in love! With a spot nestled in the mountains, try featuring a rustic wedding altar filled with branches and blooms, or draped with flowing white chiffon to complement your open, airy surroundings. Guests can gaze at the amazing view as you stand before the mountains and exchange vows. What a beautiful start to your married life with the person you love, amidst the unseen enchantment of the mountains, and your loved ones giving you all the amazing ideas to keep the mood on in the chilly weather. Well, this is what friends and family are all about!
Not to mention, the change in the environment has led to a big impact on every domain. And weddings are not an exception to it. So, it is a great change that people are accepting with an open heart. Interestingly, a mountainscape wedding literally couldn’t be more green - as in eco-friendly! With gorgeous natural light and scenery, the decor at your wedding destination is pretty much all the romantic settings that you need. Maybe even give back to nature by planting a unity tree as part of your outdoor wedding ceremony. Isn’t it dreamy to start a fresh chapter of your life with the one whom you adore above anything on this planet!
It is not an exaggeration that a wedding is all about the memories you make, with those whom you love. No matter how much modernization enters the world, love always remains classic. For couples to showcase their timeless love for each other, how about carving their initials into tree trunks out in the woods. Though it is not new, but few things keep their spark forever! How sweet would it be to continue this tradition? A personalized birch vase like this is another idea you could bring home after the wedding. Try adding your wedding date with your monogram and create something interesting on your big day.
Though the decor takes up the first attention as everyone enters your wedding location, your wedding attire is something that is never a secondary option for anyone, including you! In the quest of choosing the stunning outfits, you should take care of your comfort as well. Of course, how you feel is the most important thing, above anything else. The first help for you is to check in advance about what kind of weather you can expect for your day of the wedding if there will be snowfall or strong winds. Accordingly, it would be easy to find the right boots for you that keep yourself at ease on mountains, with comfort, safety, and warmth, considering the cold there. The next safety tip could be to wear a cardigan, a coat, a fur shawl, a scarf, or some other cozy elements that you like to pair with your bridal look. As a boho bride, a hat could be dramatic for a mountain wedding. The best part! It lets the excessive sunlight away and prevents your head from overheating. When it comes to the groom and groomsmen, an easy idea is to wear three-piece woolen suits to feel comfortable on a cold day.
A party without a cake is just a meeting, and all with the sweet tooth can feel it completely. So, couples, let the fun continue with your wedding cake! How about a white one with buttercream trees and mountains plus topping it off with wooden mountain toppers. Push your limits and be a little experimental to give a try to watercolors or painting mountains on the cake with some berries and evergreens on top. Isn’t it just awesome to embrace the already cherished ambiance with this exciting concept? A naked wedding cake could be another blast, all-natural and easy to go! Just top it off with blooms or greenery for some extra effects for your wedding pictures to bloom.
It may sound weird to some of you that the directions could be of great help if you are at a new place, and when your wedding party is experiencing the mountains for the first time (may or may not be), a fun element could be to prop up some signs on skis to guide your guests to your wedding day festivities. Exciting! Isn’t it? Your born-adventure flair could be seen through some amazing mountain activities in your decorations.
Considering all the preparations that a mountain wedding could demand, you should be a little proactive while planning everything. Because a bit of disorientation may make you suffer a lot! Be it your wedding dress inspiration or selecting pretty details to turn everything around beautiful, do not forget to focus on what your guests don't have and what they need. While you might be busy making the best of your wedding, they must be in comfort for this new experience in the mountains!
