The wedding is the most essential part of the couple’s lives joining together. No matter the theme of your wedding, wedding ceremonies start with a focal point. Be creative to personalize your wedding and add baby’s breath tied to the chair. Wedding ceremony flowers can be simple to elaborate. Here is a tip- save money, reuse your ceremony flowers at the reception.
Floral Arbor or Chuppah
Arbor’s have been popular for years! The flower arbor or chuppah is a traditional structural backdrop for the ceremony that the bride and groom will stand under. It is a perfect place for wedding photos! Decorate with your favorite greenery. We love eucalyptus, Italian ruscus, olive branch, roses, carnations, and chrysanthemums.
Do you want to impress your guests as they enter your ceremony? Make decorative floral pillars and display them at the end of each aisle. Place the flower arrangements on columns to raise them. Add monochromatic flowers and rose petals.
This trend is big! Floral walls make a statement at any wedding or event. The impressive backdrop made with your favorite flowers and greenery is perfect for the bride & groom backdrop and guest photos. Save and order bulk flowers or flower packs to decorate your flower wall.
Floral Aisle Flowers
You can display vases with flowers at the end of every row or the foot of each seat. Another idea is to hang hanging vases on hooks or on the chairs. If you want to make chair swags, and hang them on end chairs. Don’t forget to add a petal carpet for a romantic trail leading to the altar. If you have flower girls, have them scatter the petals down the aisle.
Reception Flowers – Welcome Table and Signs
Adding flowers to your welcome table is a simple way to dress it up! Another suggestion is to add greenery to the table. No matter what you decide, flowers will add warmth and color to welcome your guests. Add garden roses, spray roses, dagger ferns, veronica, and mixed greens.
Centerpieces are a staple piece of the reception and style of the wedding. Match the colors to the bridesmaid’s dresses and design the shape to coordinate with the form of the table. Centerpieces can vary in size, shape, color, height, and do not all have to match each other. Remember, design them to the wedding theme and venue. Flowers to pick from is endless. We love dahlias, scabiosa, sunflowers, dianthus trick, stock and there are so much more!
Add a fresh bloom or swag of greenery to each place setting. Adding a single flower or leaf brings ambiance to the reception.
Floral Garlands and Swags
One of my favorites! Floral garlands can drape off the table, used as table runners, wrap around banisters or decorate doorways. Why garlands? You can keep them simple with just greenery or add flowers to them. Mixed green garlands are perfect for a modern wedding. Swags are a smaller scale, the slight crescent shape used to frame welcome signs, chairs, window sills, or any structures to decorate.
Now, this is a statement piece! Decorate chandeliers with mixed greenery and flowers with tiered levels of flowers and greens. They can hang over dance floors, the head table or guest tables. What a perfect way to decorate a garden wedding theme.
Brides Bouquet, Bridesmaid Bouquets and Boutonnieres
There are so many style bouquets to pick! They come in different styles, colors, and shapes. We can help you pick a perfect wedding bouquet, read more on this blog about the technique and style of flower bouquets.
Bridesmaids’ bouquets are usually smaller than the brides and less elaborate. Use similar flowers as the brides and a matching palette. The new trend is- not all the bridesmaids’ bouquets need to be a clone of each other- match the colors, but you can change them a bit as the bridesmaids wear different style dresses using the same color palette.
Boutonnieres is a must to add a touch of color to the grooms and groomsmen’s suits or tux. Traditionally you will give the father of the bride, father of the groom and the ring bearer a boutonniere. The grooms’ boutonnière should match the bride’s bouquet with 2-3 stems. Accents like hypericum, Billy balls, thistle, lavender and scabiosa pods with greenery is trending!
Wedding cakes have evolved! Design your wedding cake to go with the theme of your flowers. We have created a blog about styles and flower safety for wedding cakes. You don’t need a lot of flowers; just a few fresh blooms can change the look of your cake.
