When planning a wedding, there is so much to think about and it can get pretty overwhelming. From the wedding flowers to the bridesmaid dresses, there is a lot of elements to organise – and no doubt you’ll want it to be perfect for the most special day of your life. However, it’s the little finishing touches that will make your day unique and really stand out from the rest.
Do you think flowers are just for bouquets and centrepieces? Think again! Get creative with your floral designs and you can wow your guests. Here are some distinctive ideas for your wedding day:
Make your ceremony room blooming wonderful with special extras. Scatter flower petals down the aisle, and attach tiny bunches of flowers to the seats on the outside of the aisle. Baby’s breath is a great filler flower to use here, as it looks really pretty and colour could distract from the bride’s entrance.
If you are having an outdoor ceremony, then impress guests by thinking tall. Use mason jars and rope to hang them from tree branches. Be sure to fill them with pretty and colourful flowers!
The wedding breakfast
Your guests will spend a lot of time in the room where you have your wedding breakfast – so give them plenty to look at and experience! Flowers can be incorporated into the seating plan in a number of creative ways. Fill galvanised buckets with bunches of shrubs and wildflowers, then place a piece of card in there with the guest’s names. Alternatively, fill a wooden crate with flowers and place in the different table names and seating plan.
Flowers can also be used to adorn the cake, and make it even more of a masterpiece. From a naked wedding cake with random flowers, which is on trend right now, to decadent traditional cakes with cascading blossoms – choose a style to really suit your wedding.
