Did someone say a wedding? Many things come to mind when a wedding is mentioned, and one of them should be flowers. After all, flowers are a vital element of any wedding. The right flower choices ensure that the couple's special day has the right visual appeal. Plus, flowers have a way of brightening everything. The good news is there are many ways you can use flowers to full effect for a wedding. This article looks at all the ways flowers are used for weddings.
Centerpieces and Table Arrangements
Centerpieces and table arrangements are quite common for weddings, but that doesn't mean you can't think outside the box with this idea. The wedding will also need a wide range of flower arrangements to be placed on cocktail tables, bars, and food stations by the wedding cake, entryway, altar, or aisle. Overall, you can place centerpieces and flower arrangements in key focal points all around the wedding venue for the perfect setup.
Weddings can never be complete without flower bouquets. You will need a lot of flower bouquets to go around. To begin with, there's the bride's bouquet, which she has to throw later on so it can be caught by the next bride-to-be. Then there are also bouquets for that bridal party to match their outfits and complete the look. There's a wide range of wedding bouquets to choose from, including custom and handmade pieces from flower shops.
According to wedding industry statistics, more than 60% of weddings have a flower girl. Chances are you're considering including a flower girl in your own wedding. But of course, your flower girl won't be complete without flowers in hand. You have two options when it comes to providing your flower girl with the right blossoms. Traditionally, a flower girl is given petals to throw. Usually, the flower girl throws rose petals which are perfect for any romantic occasion. But in some cases, the flower girl really is a junior bride's maid, in which case, they should be given a miniature bouquet to match the rest of the bridal party.
Although flower crowns have been around for a while, they're still one way to give the bride a memorable and unique look. Flower crowns are designed to enhance the beauty of the bride. What's interesting about flower crowns is that they can be fashioned to reflect the bride's style and personality, whether you're going for a bohemian look or want to look like a ravishing princess or queen. You can also make a flower headband as an alternative to a crown. There's a wide range of flower choices, depending on the statement you want to make. In any case, you can be sure the results will turn heads and make the wearer look more enchanting.
There's no limit to what you can do with flower decorations for weddings. You can decorate the wedding venue with flower buckets that are artfully arranged with fresh and colorful flowers. You can create a cascading vine curtain that is also bedecked with flowers to create an amazing backdrop. Or you can use flowers to decorate arches, an idea that's usually popular for summer weddings. When it comes to flower hangings, you can place flowers on the wall, the ceiling, or the chandelier. When done right, the aesthetics can be quite breathtaking.
Besides flower headbands and crowns that can be used as hair accessories for a wedding, flowers can also be used as attractive accessories in many ways. You can use flowers to make flower earrings that swing as the wearer dances. You can add flowers to your stationery, cards, and seating displays, or accessorize them in any way that looks good. Flowers are also needed for the groom's boutonniere and for corsages. The important thing to remember is that there's no limit when it comes to using flowers as statement accessories. In addition, you don't always have to stick to tradition, but you should embrace creativity with flowers as long as the visuals satisfy the eye.
