If you really love flowers, there are a lot of different ways to incorporate them into your big day. Don’t stop at the bridal bouquet, as there are many things involved in a wedding that can be enhanced with flowers. We at hitched.com.au have compiled a list of different ways to bring the floral touch to your wedding day.
Instead of a tiara or headband, why not opt for a garland of flowers in your hair? A floral garland is perfect for an outdoors or less formal ceremony, and is a great alternative to a traditional bejewelled hair band. Your bridesmaids could have similar flowers woven into their hairstyles too.
Pick a pair of shoes with a pretty floral pattern, or buy clip on flowers to add to plain shoes. These will help to enhance the simplest pair of bridal shoes, and will look great peeking out from under a wedding dress.
Floral patterned stationery is great if you want an elegant vintage vibe, or are having a garden party themed wedding.
For a stunning vintage tea party vibe, opted for floral patterned tea cups and plates. The more mismatched the better. They will look great and really stand out against a pristine white table cloth.
Decorate a simple, white wedding cake with fresh flowers, or opt for elaborate sugar flowers to adorn your cake. A chocolate cake will look particularly delectable when it is bedecked with white chocolate roses, or for a more traditional cake, pick flowers that match your color scheme. Another idea is to go for pretty cupcakes, iced to look like roses, or decorated with tiny sugar flowers in floral cupcake cases.
Fresh or artificial, look lovely in the middle of the tables at the reception. Just make sure they aren’t too tall, or they can affect your guests’ communication. For an interesting twist, you could order chocolate blooms, which could double up as favors for your guest.
Have the smell of fresh flowers throughout your wedding by lighting floral scented candles and tea lights. You could even give your guests scented candle favours, or a cube of solid perfume so they can be reminded of your big day.
