Summer Picnic Wedding Inspiration
The summer season is one of Australia’s most remarkable and beautiful times and we love being outdoors celebrating! We are in the midst of the Australian 2012/2013 wedding season and one trend that has caught our eye at the Pink Frosting Wedding Shop is a Picnic Themed wedding! This charming, laid back and intimate theme has really taken off this wedding season and we are here to help you plan and put together the perfect picnic themed wedding! From invitations all the way to saying your I-do you will love this fresh and delightful theme. A picnic wedding benefits from the beauty of the outdoors, and with this the colours go to match, natural woods and leafy greens as well as red and white checks this country chic feeling will make for a cosy and memorable event.
Your invitations are the first part of the puzzle your guests see so why not make them special. At the Pink Frosting Wedding Shop we have an exclusive range of gorgeous wedding invites that match this theme. Depending on your style there is a range of wedding invitations that suits the picnic theme, try these adorable Love Birds invitations in a range of different colours, or these fun and elegant Chalk Board invitations. If you’re going for a more vintage style picnic theme the Lace Invites in a range of colours will suit your wedding impeccably.
With a picnic wedding your ceremony and reception are most likely going to be outdoors, which gives you the opportunity to use Mother Nature’s resources and adding a touch of style to them. You colour pallet for an outdoor picnic theme begins with crisp whites, fresh greens, lemon yellows, vibrant reds any colour that just screams out summertime! Walk down the aisle to a row of white lace parasols or hang large tissue paper pom poms along the chairs down the aisle for a garden-fresh summer feeling. The wedding alter represents the joining of two souls under an expression of their love, so make sure you keep it true to your style. Try a rustic wooden arch way that you can then decorate accordingly to the picnic theme, by wrapping garlands and fairy lights around the wedding arch it can add to the real magical feeling of being outdoors. For your reception, using Mother Nature at her best, you can hang up lots of different sized lanterns from surrounding trees above where the tables will be set out! Buntings also make for a great accessory to a picnic wedding, they can be hung from the tables, or above the buffet table they are a cute addition to the decorations.
When it comes to the table settings, this is where you can start having a lot of fun with how you want to design them! Start with the table clothes, using either a plain white or red and white check table clothes with table runner down the centre. Then for your centrepieces give your table that real country chic picnic feeling and use large wooden woven picnic baskets filled with flowers, home-made treats, fresh fruit vegetables and bread, the choices are endless with this, they can also double as your table numbers for guests to find. If your picnic style reception is more traditional in the sense where everyone sits on picnic blankets laid out on the fresh grass you can still use the picnic basket style as picnic blanket accessories and put in scrumptious treats or refreshing drinks for guests to enjoy.
Its time to enjoy the food! But what are we serving at a picnic wedding you ask? All the traditional treats you would expect!! You can set up a buffet style area with scrumptious finger foods you find on a picnic. Finger sandwiches, an assortment of cheese biscuits and cured meats, savoury delights like quiche Loraine, spinach and fetta parcels and any other dish you would want to have at a picnic! The dessert table is one of great beauty. Fluffy scones with cream and jam, home-made pies in a range of flavours and of course your wedding cake, topped with these adorable sweet tweets bride and groom cake toppers! Don’t forget the chilled lemonade stand; served in classic country style mini milk bottles, your picnic style buffet is now complete!

Try using these adorable mini woven baskets that match your table centrepieces which can be filled with scrumptious home-made cookies or anything that matches your picnic theme.
