Creative Ideas for Wedding Floral Décor
We love taking wedding floral design to new and beautiful heights. While traditional wedding bouquets and centerpieces receive the most attention, there are numerous creative ways to display flowers. Highlighting blooms that are unique and totally unexpected is not only stunning, but it also brings personality and style to the ceremony and reception. For the bride who wants to make a statement, here are five creative ideas for wedding floral décor.
To create a total atmospheric setting, hang flowers from the ceiling. The impression is similar to an art installation and will completely transform the look and feel of your venue space. A neat, rectangular arrangement of upside blooms looks chic and modern. An artful hanging display gives the appearance of a magnificent floral chandelier, while staggering blooms overhead casts an air of romantic enchantment.
Imagine exchanging vows in front of a gorgeous wall of blossoms? A flower wall is a wonderful way to create an eye-catching focal point and can be placed anywhere you want to draw attention such as the sweetheart table or cake and dessert buffet. And once the festivities really get started, the wall can be used as a backdrop for memorable wedding photos and candid selfies.
Floral Trimmed Staircase
Make the most of a venue with a grand staircase by decorating it with exquisite floral trimming. Depending on your style, decor can be a full expression of flowers such as romantic roses or more natural with greenery accents. A blooming stairway is not only a lovely gesture of welcome for guests; it also acts as a charming backdrop for wedding photos.
In a Jewish wedding ceremony, the bride and groom are married under a chuppah, a canopy that symbolizes the couple’s future home where they will live together as husband and wife. There are no formal requirements for the structure, which allows the bride to be creative when it comes to design and ornamentation. Used in both indoor and outdoor ceremonies, the chuppah is a ceremonial focal point which is often adorned with gorgeous floral arrangements, greenery, and sumptuous fabric.
Today, more and more brides are using an arch or canopy as a decorative feature in weddings, no matter their faith. Just like in the Jewish wedding, an arch creates a ceremonial space for the bride and groom who are about to start their married life together. When it comes to decoration, arches range from simple structures made of light fabric and a few leaves and flowers to elaborate canopies adorned with colorful blossoms, foliage, and branches.
Floral Seating Accents
A great way to make sure there is a continuous flow throughout your wedding decor is to include floral accents on chairs. Affixing flower arrangements on the seating closest to the aisle creates a striking walkway during the ceremony. Make guests feel extra special by ornamenting dinner and reception chairs with blooms and satin ribbon. As the most important seats in the house, the bride and groom’s chairs can be personalized and embellished with lush flowers and foliage.
The bouquet and centerpiece will always be the mainstay for wedding floral décor. But for a truly meaningful and unique declaration of love and sentiment, think beyond what you typically see at weddings. We hope these creative ideas for floral design and decor give you the inspiration needed to plan and fashion the wedding of your dreams.
