You’ve said yes to the dress. You’ve secured your dream venue. You’ve finalized the guest list. All of the major decisions for the wedding have been made, but now is the time that you get to be fun, creative and allow your personality to truly shine through. It is sometimes the smallest wedding details that make a really large impact, making your special day the memorable event of the season.
Celebrating outdoors often affords lovely views. Add your own personal design to the beauty with a floral garland or swag to decorate a gazebo or trellis; or if no structure will be there, choose floral topiaries to stand on either side of you during the vows.
Here’s a Hint: Topiaries can be easily transported from ceremony to reception venue. Therefore if you decorate your ceremony with them, you will likely be able to utilize them to adorn the reception as well.
Regardless of if you are in a church or celebrating outdoors, miniature versions of the bridesmaid bouquet are the perfect way to accentuate the aisles and seating area. If you are feeling especially generous, you may wish to give away the arrangement after the ceremony to someone who sat in that row – announce that there is a piece of paper taped under the chair in each embellished row, and see who get to bring home the beautiful keepsake!
Of course, it is a custom for the wedding party and the parents of the couple to have wearable flowers. You may wish to consider having single blooms, straight pins and hairpins at the entrance, to allow any guest who wants to join in the festivities, to wear your colors!
