Outdoor Wedding Trend: Tree Decorations

As an outdoor bride myself, I have a deep appreciation for those who can decorate an outdoor venue without the decorations either competing with the natural scenery or being overwhelmed by it.

Decorating nearby trees with streamers, bunting, chandeliers, window panes, or miscellaneous ephemera is my newest favorite wedding trend. The whimsy of these items draped and hung in trees doesn't compete with the scenery and adds a little fun and pop to your wedding/ reception site. Check out a few of my favorite ideas.
