Choosing your wedding venue is the first and biggest step to planning your wedding.Weddings can be held in a chapel, on a mountaintop, in your favorite barn or lakeside! Being near the water on your big day can be stunning and can be a great backdrop for adding some cute wedding themed elements to the decor. Here are some of our favorite ideas for a lakeside wedding. Having your wedding near your favorite body of water creates such a beautiful backdrop for your photos. Why not place your alter facing the water?! Lining the dock with lights is a great way to encourage your guests to step out onto the water. Keeping with the lake theme, we can suggest many different little details to tie it all together. Little bags of skipping stones for your guests is a cute take-away!
Why not fill your canoe with drinks or take your photos in it! We love wedding signs that can easily fit into the theme of your wedding. Themed weddings. That phrase can make me cringe. However, when done right, themed weddings can be classy and understated. I love the idea of a boat themed wedding where canoes, paddles, and water is involved. To make sure your themed wedding doesn’t become a costume party, try adding some floral details or greens to tie it all together. Flowers and decor rentals are our jam at Alexan Events! When getting married on a body of water, floating lanterns can add such a beautiful touch. Also, if there are boats involved, it can be a beautiful idea to have your send off in one of them! Sail away with your new partner! We love all of the little details that these couples choose for their lakeside weddings!
