Decorating a Pond for a Wedding

If you have a pond, use Japanese floating candles. They are pretty lit up with the glowing light through the shade. They were originally for funerals in Japanese culture to honor the dead, but they are beautiful, and you can honor your dearly beloved. A word of warning do not pay for swans. They are beautiful, but down right mean and territorial. The males will attack the guests. Try ribbons in the trees, and glowing lanterns too for dramatic affect, if you don't have a pond. If you have a walkway path, try clear bright glowing Christmas lights for the path, or green bushes or trees. Have fun and get daring. Enjoy your wedding day. I know I did mine.

What can I use to decorate our 1 acre pond for my son's wedding reception in July?

I love the challenge of decorating water, try using wreaths of flowers floating around the waters edge. One wedding I did I made swans out of balloons with the male swan wearing a top hat! you also if you use your imagination you can float candles on water to using a base that floats, have fun with this!!!

Can you get flowering water plants? If the pond isn't too deep - you could put some statuary in it on pedestals...or have a boat/raft in it with flowers/decorated...I like the idea of floating candles, too...

I have seen ponds or small bodies of water decorated for weddings. You may want to call a rental place and see if you can rent a fountain for the middle of the pond. Where you would be renting it, I am sure the expense is far less than buying one. You can then illuminate the fountain, By setting up a spot light aimed for the fountain. And the spot light can just set back in the distance hidden by trees or shrubbs.


Also, A very pretty idea is to buy real looking white flowers (plastic will float better than silk) and scatter bunches of white flowers accross the pond. And Again, Any idea you think of, You will want to still illuminate this with a spot light! You can also find white plastic swans, That can just sit atop the water.

The pond sounds like a lovely effect for a wedding setting!

Best Wishes! :)

I used to work in a very large estate home and we used to put votive candles in those round glass single candle holders and float them on the pond. The light would reflect off the glass and the water and is very beautiful as they meander around. The round globe holders can be purchased by the case at Costco or Michael's Crafts I think. Not that expensive and reusable.
