Bouquets, boutonnieres and centerpieces are just the beginning of the ways you can use the natural beauty of flowers to take your wedding decor from average to absolutely amazing!
Of all of the elements it takes to create a memorable wedding, flowers may very well be one of the most versatile. With so many colors, shapes and textures to choose from, it’s easy to pick blooms that match your personal style.
But choosing your wedding flowers isn’t just about making decisions about your bouquets, boutonnieres and centerpieces, although those are certainly important. When you put your mind to it, you can find many creative and innovative ways to use flowers in every aspect of your wedding.
Let’s take your ceremony as an example. You’ll likely want to have some arrangements on the altar or near the spot where you and your fiancé will stand to say your vows. But it can also be a nice touch to hang simple arrangements on the sides of the church pews or on the chairs that border the aisle. Or perhaps you’d like an aisle runner fashioned out of rose petals, or even give guests cups of rose petals to toss as you make your way back down the aisle as newlyweds.
You can also find floral inspiration by taking a walk through your venue. You might decide to add flowers to the chandeliers in the dining area or to the lighting fixtures or lanterns in the entryway to welcome your guests. Placing an arrangement on the escort card table is another nice welcoming touch. If you’re having an outdoor ceremony, you may want to use flowers to decorate a fountain or another architectural or natural feature to add extra ambiance.
Flowers can also be worn or used as embellishments. They can be added to a hair comb or headband or fashioned into a hair wreath for a casually elegant look. You can also incorporate them into your food and beverage choices. Edible flowers make beautiful food garnishes. Or you may want to serve some refreshing lavender lemonade or rose martinis accented with rose petals. Tucking a stem of an herb like rosemary into each napkin ring or attaching one to each place card can also add a fragrant touch to your tablescape. And don’t forget your wedding cake. Adding fresh flowers to its design can give it an extra special flair.
It’s easy to turn up the flower power of your wedding. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
