Here are 7 color schemes for a sage wedding you can use to start building out the ceremony of your dreams!

Now let’s see exactly how Caitlin and Kyle incorporated the sage color palette into their very own Summer ceremony.

Decor for Outdoor Wedding Ceremony

Cailtin and Kyle held their modest wedding ceremony on grass that stretched for miles, with a view of a bright city skyline and a settled faroff stream. The estate towered over the lawn revealing rows of classy white seating facing an exquisite archway where Caitlin & Kyle were soon to say their “I Dos”.

The aisle decor featured in hanging eucalyptus vines and cream roses and the archway was dressed in flowing white drapes with ivory roses and sage eucalyptus bouquets pinned to sides. It was such an elegant focal point!

A simple archway can truly transform a large space. If you need to add a touch of elegance to your outdoor ceremony, you might want to try decorating with an archway of exquisite sage green florals or lively Summer sunflowers .

Bridal Flower Bouquets

As the ceremony began, Caitln’s bridesmaids strolled in proudly wearing flowing teal dresses. Each bridesmaid modeled posies of ivory rose, blueberry branch, and eucalyptus leaf in their hand. For an added touch of class, each bridesmaid bouquet was tied at the end in delicate white ribbons.

Caitlin made a grand appearance in a lace, corset style, off the shoulder ball gown dress. She held in her hand a large cascading bridal bouquet of white peonies, Austin roses, and phalaenopsis orchids and truly stole the show.

We love that Caitlin went BIG with her wedding bouquet! It was an incredible complement to her sleek and classic wedding dress style. There is no right or wrong choice when it comes to customizing a bouquet but considering the size can be of help. For example if you want to emphasize focus on the bridesmaid or bride’s dress then a smaller bouquet could create that appeal. If you desire to wow the crowd and draw focus to your dress and bridal bouquet then a larger bouquet arrangement would be an ideal choice.

Sage Boutonniere Flowers

Kyle stood at the altar wearing a smile as big as Caitlin’s bouquet! He sported a dashing royal blue suit with a decorative blue paisley tie. His groomsmen followed closely behind him in chic gray suits and solid teal ties matching the dress of each bridesmaid. On the left of each groomsman and ring bearer’s shoulder was a debonair baby’s breath boutonniere.

Sage Wedding Reception Flowers

The newlyweds’ wedding reception was just as remarkable as the ceremony. At the entrance of the reception hall is a guest book signing table accompanied by a heartwarming photo of the bride and groom. Surrounding the photos are delicate free standing arrangements of luxuriant white tea roses, ivory calla lily, and silver dollar eucalyptus leaves. 

Sage Wedding Decor for the Head Table

In the center of the room was the head table where the newlyweds and their bridal party took their seats. Behind this table was a glorious accent wall with a hot pink neon sign reading “Happily Ever After” in script font. The rosy glow of the neon sign illuminated the beautiful decor on top of the head table. A lengthy garland of rich green silver dollar eucalyptus was sprawled along the table with a large centerpiece of white roses and sage greenery settled in the center of the table.

Behind the head table seating was a rustic wooden fireplace garnished in a floral garland made with nude roses and sprouts of beige pampas grass. Nestled in the corner of the fireplace behind the happy couple was a free-standing floral arrangement of white avalanche rose, ivory gardenias, and eucalyptus leaf matching the elegant table decor. This created an incredibly romantic monochrome ambience that really brought together the entire reception color scheme.
