Underwater Garden Wedding Inspiration

underwater wedding inspiration

I love today’s styled inspiration – an underwater garden themed styled shoot! Inspired by the bride’s dress with a beautiful watercolor floral pattern along its hem, the team began to dream up lots of gorgeous underwater inspiration. By combing the painterly qualities of the dress with bright colors + sea life décor, they created a whimsical underwater garden party that would delight couples-to-be.

Today’s shoot is also designed with the budget-conscious and DIY couple in mind. One easy tip they incorporated is using vases with small mouths for easy arranging and maximum impact. Other DIY projects included a dip-dye tablecloth made to resemble waves, watercolor napkins + invites, and a show-stopping fabric chandelier that cost them only $25 to make! The end result reflects what the world underwater is truly like: from sparkling schools of fish to clusters of bright coral, the sea is a veritable explosion of every shade in the rainbow!

    I personally really like outdoor weddings, although across the pond (in the UK) can be a little trickier, because of the weather for example. For more info, please check out this blog post: http://www.soireedeluxe.co.uk/blog/can-an-outdoor-reception-still-be-formal/

    A huge congratulations to the wonderful couple! :D

  2. […] This styled wedding shoot shows off how you can use watercolour as an inspiration for a wedding to great effect. What I also like about this shoot is that it has the budget conscious bride in mind.  Things like the invites, tablecloths and ribbon chandelier are all simple and cost effective diy projects.  I think the laid back look captured in this shoot is the perfect backdrop for an Australian summer Wedding.  What do you think?
