There are a variety of moving parts involved when bringing your wedding-day vision to life. And sometimes the pressure can feel overwhelming, especially since your wedding design should speak to who you are as a couple, your personality and your style.
Although every wedding will be different, there are a few key floral details to consider including in your wedding design. Use the list below to guide you as you plan your perfect day!
This is the most obvious, but also because it’s the most important floral piece! Bouquets are the number one floral detail you should have for your big day.
Why? Because they complete your bridal look! They are also a beautiful touch that will bring some extra pizzazz to your wedding portraits, and one of the biggest focal pieces your guests will see as you walk down the aisle.
Your bouquet isn’t the only thing your guests should see during the ceremony!
There should be something in the ceremony area that catches your guests’ eyes and says, “Stop here. This is where an important event will take place.”
A few examples may be greenery aisle runners, a ceremony floral installation, or a wall backdrop. And just imagine how the photos will turn out with an extra pop of greenery and/or color!
First impressions aren’t just for people! Set the tone as each guest walks in, and it can go a long way in completing the overall ambiance of your wedding celebrations.
Consider a floral archway, or a set of large floral pots on either side of the doorway. Or for a smaller touch, add some blooms to sit atop your welcome sign!
Especially if your reception will be in a different location and separate from your ceremony, you may want to consider a focal statement piece for the big celebration!
Adding florals to one main wall in the reception area or hanging a floral installation from the ceiling are both two great ideas for something like this! The key is to remember quality over quantity. People will be far more likely to remember one statement piece more than they’ll remember small centerpieces on each table.
Especially for more formal, sit-down dinner events, giving each guest a little something at their seat or on their plate can have a meaningful impact.
This can make them feel delighted and welcomed personally. You could go with a simple sprig of greenery or as elaborate as a small potted plant for each guest to take home and remember the day by!
