This is a list of wedding decoration ideas (bridal bouquets, centerpieces, and other decorations) related to your wedding flowers – it is a great place to start thinking about memorable wedding decor for your special day.
Play with Shape: Arrangements with a just-picked, unstructured look are replacing the tightly bound bouquet and centerpiece shapes that were previously popular. To ensure that you have a modern look, not messy, make sure you choose the right flowers. Use hearty blooms, like lilies, orchids, and amaranths – they work well in looser arrangements because of the sleek shape of the individual bloom. You can also try including non-floral elements too, like feathers, berries, and crystals to add interest and depth. And this is just one of many wedding flower ideas.
Think Beyond the Vase: There are many options to consider besides the traditional vase. Consider instead mixing and matching clusters of unique containers like wood buckets, mason jars, cans, pitchers, antique urns, and uniquely shaped vases to add interest and reflect personality within your wedding decor. For example, you could fill watering cans with wildflowers for a garden celebration, or use apothecary jars filled with sand and sea glass to compliment a waterfront wedding.
Lighten Up: Candles are always a popular choice for wedding centerpieces; they are becoming even more popular as a budget and Eco-friendly enhancement to traditional floral centerpieces. Ample candlelight lends the day a romantic, organic feel, while the natural resource saves electricity and drapes the setting with a dreamy, intimate glow.
Another way to enhance your arrangements with lighting and really make your centerpieces pop is through a technique called pin spotting. This advanced lighting design shines tiny beams of light from the ceiling to illuminate the center of the arrangement.
Think Gems and Jewels: Say goodbye to light pastels and muted shades, and seek inspiration from the trinkets on your ears and wrist. Rich gemstone colors like amethyst, turquoise, and amber are hot on this year’s wedding palette.
Go Green!: Going green is easy when it comes to wedding flowers. Consult Mother Nature for inspiration and bring the outdoors inside. Natural objects like stones, leaves, pine cones, even twigs can add an organic aesthetic to your wedding decor. Use locally available flowers in recycled containers for a charming eco friendly feel.
Make it Personal: Further seeking to personalize their weddings, brides are using their wedding flowers to call out specific interests by incorporating unique items into bouquets and centerpieces and creating a conversation piece for guests. A great example is to incorporate your grandmother’s brooch or pin into your satin wrapped bouquet stem.
Most of these can be DIY wedding decorations if you’re willing to put the time in! There are endless things you can do with your wedding flowers to add to your wedding decor, so let your imagination run wild.
