When we think of wedding flowers we often think of the bride's bouquet, but flowers can be wonderful accessories in almost any surroundings. Using wedding flowers as decorations is popular, particularly for a summer wedding. Wedding flower bouquet also provides a wonderfully fresh scent that will last throughout the day.
Wedding Flowers and The Ceremony
The main role for wedding flowers, during the ceremony, is as part of the bridal party bouquets. However, look a little further and you will see a whole host of opportunities for your wedding flowers.
Why not use a bow of material with one pretty flower in the center, on the back of every chair. Simple yet effective. Wedding flowers can also be used as part of the ceremony venue decorations. It may be possible, for example, to line the aisle with flowers or to ask a bridesmaid to scatter petals on the path, in front of the bride.
Wedding Flowers and the Reception
Wedding flowers are not traditionally part of the reception decorations. But, there is no reason why flowers cannot be a fundamental part of your decorative design.
Flowers can be used as centerpieces on the tables, they can even be used as a fun way of telling people at which table they should be sitting. For example, you could have a rose table, a lily table, and a violet table.
Instead of favors, it could be a great idea to use wedding flowers such as a single rose as a gift for every woman. Wedding flowers can also be used to decorate the venue itself, for example, as part of the room decorations – a fresh and vibrant alternative to balloons!
