The theme and décor of your wedding should be as unique as the couple getting married. The best benefit about using a Lake District Wedding Venue, like Broadoaks, is that it is an exclusive use venue, so you can decorate the space exactly as you would like with no restrictions.
Citrus Themed Wedding Ideas
A growing trend for summer couples is celebrating citrus. Bright colours and refreshing flavours make a citrus theme perfect for a Lake District Summer Wedding. Whether it’s lemon, lime, orange or grapefruit, these zesty fruits lighten the mood and give guests a fresh and fun feeling to your wedding. They add a tangy pop to classic wedding colours and bring an organic vibe to decor on your big day. From simple stacked oranges for centrepieces to stunning sweetheart table trees, there are lots of ways you can use citrus in your wedding.
Lake District Orangery Wedding
Utilise the Broadoaks Orangery – The Orangery at Broadoaks provides a light and airy ceremony space that brings the Lakeland outdoors inside. With views across the river and majestic woodland as your backdrop, The Orangery is perfect in any season and would look amazing with citrus based décor.
Accent Your Floral Arrangements – When it comes to wedding flowers, local brides tend to lean towards summer hues or classic neutrals. Bright citrus like lemons and oranges add a unique textural element to arrangements.
Dresses & Bouquets – Bright yellow and orange bouquets pop against traditional white wedding dresses or, consider a coloured wedding dress with white flowers for a truly unique bright zesty wedding look. Have your bridesmaids and grooms’ men in co ordinating zesty colours or pick a shade and have an ombre effect for a modern approach to a citrus theme.
Add a Pop of Colour to Ceremony Décor – The Lake District, especially in summer, is full of lush green scenery and blue skies, what better way to inject some complimentary colours than to include orange and yellow as part of your décor. You can also include potted fruit trees and lush greenery sprinkled throughout. Oranges, lemons, or limes can be used as table or name markers, they can be stacked inside large glass centrepieces for an affordable and beautiful alternative to flowers.
Utilise Them in Unique Cocktails – Tie your wedding theme together by utilising citrus in your signature cocktails. It’ll compliment your fruit accents used throughout your decor. You can also serve fresh lemonade throughout the day to keep your guest hydrated and on theme!
Infuse your Food with Zest – When picking your menu include zesty items, perhaps a lemon sauce or a pudding based around fruit to match your food to your theme.
Gifts and Guests – Wedding favours can be dried citrus slices to be used as scent in the guest homes, letting them take some of your citrus theme home with them. You can also gift citrus soaps, candles, or cookies!
