How to create a fabulous floral wedding
Whether you love romantic red roses, colourful wildflowers or lovely lilies, SoGlosWeddings has found some inspiring ideas for creating a fabulous floral-themed celebration.
From beautiful bouquets to delightful décor, flowers can play a big role during a couple’s big day. And if you love florals, a wedding is the perfect opportunity to go all-out!
Encompassing everything from showstopping arrangements to subtle touches, here are some ideas for creating a wonderful flower-themed wedding.
Be our guest
Set the scene for your big day with stunning stationery. Choose a floral design, adorn your invites with a sprig of lavender, or pop some petals into the envelope, for example.
If you love flowers, finding the perfect bouquet to carry down the aisle is a must. Scroll through Instagram or search Pinterest for some beautiful inspiration; narrow down your favourite flowers and colours, and work with a florist to create the arrangement of dreams.
The dashing groom, groomsmen and page boys can get into the floral spirit by donning a flowered buttonhole. From a simple white rose to marvellous miniature arrangements, go as elaborate or pared back as you wish.
It’s in the details
Even if you’re opting for a traditional white gown, there’s the option to add some gorgeous detailing, in keeping with the floral theme. Find a dreamy dress with white embellished flowers for a subtle touch, or go all out by choosing a gown with coloured blooms.
Flowers in her hair
Budding brides can add some blooming beautiful accessories to their hair. Fasten your style into place with a floral clip, adorn your do with rose bud hair pins, or go the whole distance with a fantastic flower crown.
Here comes the bride
Promising a walk to remember, dress either side of the aisle with flowers. Whether that be amazing arrangements on chairs, pew ends, a bouquet border, or strewn petals to step through, it’s sure to create a sensational spectacle.
Dressed to impress
Breathe life into your venue, turning it into your very own secret garden. There are endless ideas for themed décor, including hanging arrangements, showstopping centrepieces, incredible archways, and flower walls, to name just a few.
Extend your theme with special touches in your food and cake. Edible flowers can be added to dishes for a lovely, elegant touch, while the all-important wedding cake can be decorated to the hilt with real petals, fondant designs, or buttercream flowers, for example.
Floral table names
When naming your tables, why not go for a botanical theme? Brides and grooms-to-be can choose their favourite flowers, with the added bonus that many variants have pretty names!
Put a smile on your guests’ faces with a floral favour. Seeds remain a popular choice with couples, with other options including a miniature bouquet or tiny potted plant.
