5 Ways to Get Creative with Flowers

Now that spring is here, its time to go crazy with the florals! Whether they’re in a centerpiece, on your cake, or down the aisle, springtime flowers are the perfect accent to your wedding look. Here’s five ways to get creative with your flowers.

 

Chair Garlands

Who says flowers are only for centerpieces? Create a lush look by taking those florals beyond the table and decking out your guests’ chairs in pretty vines and flower buds. Whether its during the ceremony or the reception, these lovely seats are sure to bring spring cheer to your wedding.

 

 

Floral Tiers

This is a classic look that is super in style this wedding season. With so many beautiful springtime flowers, it’s easy to find the perfect bloom to match your cake’s style and flavor. Have the flowers arranged in a cascade down the side of your cake, or place them in between the tiers for added height.

 

Potted Favors

Give back to your guests with a wedding favor that will last! Choose your favorite in-season flower and place them in decorated pots to hand out to your guests at the end of your reception. Add a small tag with a message, your names, or your guest’s name for a personalized touch.

 

Floating Centerpieces

Not only are submerged floral centerpieces gorgeous, they are also incredibly durable and cost effective. When they’re completely covered in water, your flowers will stay open and perky much longer than if they were in a normal vase. Plus, the water keeps your blooms fresh and protected from heat, which makes this idea perfect for weddings during the warm weather months! Nearly any flower will work for underwater arrangements, but some of the best flowers to use are orchids, roses, hydrangeas, calla lillies, and tulips.

 

Aisle Designs

If you love the idea of walking down the aisle atop a bed of rose petals, but are looking to add a sophisticated and artistic touch to your wedding, consider having your florist create a swirling rose petal design to accent the aisle.
