Whether you’re spending your special day in a grand country house or an elegant marquee, a floral chandelier is a great way to ramp up the glamour factor. Opt for a crystal design, wrought iron or a chandelier made purely out of fresh flowers and foliage. This is the perfect way to make a serious style statement. They can be used at your ceremony, above the ballroom or even as raised table centrepieces, which is a fabulous idea if you want a little extra space on your guest tables.
Wedding Venue Décor
For wow-factor worthy flroal styling, make the most out of your wedding venue. If your venue features striking mantelpieces and fireplaces, embrace them! Adorn the mantelpiece with stunning floral and foliage garlands. You can work in gilded candlesticks, antique-esque mirrors and more. It’s these extra details that will really take your guests’ breath away.
Overflowing table runners with pretty blooms make for truly beautiful table centrepieces, particularly if you’re choosing to have long guest tables for your wedding breakfast. Match the flowers to your colour scheme for a look that is elegantly coordinated.
What could be more romantic than saying ‘I Do’ under a floral archway? Using flowers that fit in flawlessly with your bridal bouquet and floral styling, an archway provides you with a unique space for you to exchange your vows. You could even use it after the ceremony as a backdrop for your photographs. Circular archways are gradually working their way into the world of weddings, proving to be incredibly on-trend for 2018/19 weddings.
Make An Entrance
Sometimes, it’s the simplest decorations that can have the most impact. A striking urn overflowing with the most beautiful fresh flowers will instantly set the scene for your celebration. Place them by the entrance and let your guests be wowed from the moment they arrive.
