Flowers have always been a major part of a wedding, a symbol for love and romance. For most weddings your bouquet and table centre pieces include flowers. Want to make use of more flowers in a less traditional way? It can be overwhelming when you have so many factors to consider for your flowers. This post will look at 5 beautiful ways or places you can include flowers in your wedding.
Say your "I do's" under an arch wrapped in flowers, leaves and even jewellery. Add flowers along the edges of the arch or perhaps create a waterfall of flowers.
Hang flowers above your tables or dance floor as a floral chandelier. This is one of the hottest floral trends right now! You could hang flowers from altered chandeliers, flowers in vases, on wood boards, wrap fairy lights around them. The list goes on. Get creative and push the boundaries.
As a small ‘Thank you’ for your guest’s attendance, don’t give them something they will throw away or not even bother to take home. Miniflower favours is a symbol of life and growth. A creative idea is to place the mini pot plants in cupcake wrappers and have them displayed on a cupcake stand.
Create a floral crown as an alternative to the more traditional tiara. This trend has really exploded this past year and is the perfect accessory for a summer wedding.
Place shepherd hooks with flowers along the aisle. This is a simple idea with various options as not all shepherd hooks are the same and there are a lot of vase options. Possible vase options include birdcages, lanterns or console jars. Black shepherd hooks with flowers next to white chairs create a lot of contrast for stunning photos.
