Be creative with the style of your wedding floral centerpieces

Wedding florals have always been highly important – precisely because they have the power to change everything about the décor, venue and ambiance created at the wedding. Naturally, you want the most superb blooms on your wedding tables too – and following, we have gathered some of the most creative ideas to help you achieve a truly wow effect. Read on and find out more!

  • High and low. Go beyond traditional vase sizes and opt for vases that are either very tall or very short. They look splendid with a wide range of flowers and they will offer your entire wedding a contemporary, chic vibe. Just imagine how gorgeous a rich cluster of flowers would look like in a low vase!
  • Petals that pop. You don’t need the most expensive flowers on the market, or the most sophisticated ones. A small bouquet created with the same type of flower in a bright color can really make your wedding tables look fabulous – and when this is paired with a stylish vase, you are guaranteed to amaze your guests with your creativity!
  • Organic options. Organic flowers are a better option for everyone – the environment, the local businesses and yourself as well (especially since you will actually feel that you have made a truly eco-conscious choice). Don’t be afraid to play around with the shapes of the centerpiece too! For example, a lush bouquet will look more airy and more relaxed with a negative space included in the arrangement.

Are you still seeking how to be creative with the way you decorate the florals at your wedding? We have gathered some inspiring tips – so read on and find out more.

 

  • Floral pomanders. If you want to make your wedding look whimsical, playful and yet extremely elegant and sweet use floral pomanders to decorate the ceremony and/or the reception.

  • Floating flowers. Planning a wedding by the poolside or riverside? Use the amazing natural décor to beautify the atmosphere at your wedding reception! Decorate the water with floating flower arrangements and guests will surely love the idea.

 

  • Flowery chandeliers. If you want to have a wedding that’s classy, opulent and glamorous, chandeliers are an absolute must. Sweeten them up with pretty flower arrangements that add grace and elegance to the entire décor – it will look absolutely stunning!

 

  • Taped flowers. This may not sound like an elegant idea – but it can really add a lot to your wedding décor. Tape flower stems unto the walls (for example, the backdrop of your wedding cake table) and it will look playful, sweet and romantic. Lovely idea for a vintage or retro-inspired wedding!

Your bridal bouquet should be stunning! Make sure you are aware of the latest trends

Allusion Photography

Your bridal bouquet is not just a bunch of flowers. It is the bouquet you carry down the aisle as you make the first steps of the rest of your life. It is an accessory that should reflect who you are and what you believe in, as well as what your love story is all about too.

Of course, you want your bridal bouquet to be stunning from all points of view! But how do you do that? What are some of the latest trends in the wedding florals’ world? We have gathered some tips for you – so read on to find out more.

  • Foliage and greenery. You don’t have to have a bouquet with actual blooms. If you want a bouquet that looks natural, beautiful and really unique, you can opt to have a bouquet made out of greenery 100%. This will be really gorgeous and it can save you some serious money too, as greenery and foliage tend to cost a lot less than actual blooms.
  • Fruit and foodie “treats”. Another great trend in the floral world is that of incorporating edible elements in the bridal bouquets. Thus, herbs and fruit have become a stunning part of the bridal bouquets we have seen this year – and this can make for a really nice addition for a bride who wants her bouquet to be vibrant and joyful.
  • Flowers as accessories. Don’t want to wear a bouquet? Or maybe you want to accessorize it with matching beauties? Flower crowns, flower garlands and even flower bracelets are a trend right now and they look amazing on brides!

Flowers are gorgeous! But there are some things you should know about them when planning your wedding.

Allusion Photography

Undoubtedly, flowers are a very important part of the wedding – especially since they set the celebratory feeling of the day. What are some of the essential things every bride-to-be should know about flowers when planning her wedding? We have gathered them right below – so read on to find out more.

  • Your flower proposal will sound like a poem. Really, it will be written beautifully and it will be almost as melodious as a poem and as romantic as a fairytale. Don’t get too carried away, though! Read attentively, focus on the details and make sure you clear out any confusions now, before you sign on the dotted line!

 

  • Not to make you feel anxious, but you will most likely not see your flower arrangements until the big day. This is perfectly normal, considering you want your flowers to be fresh and vibrant – not withered and “sad”. Find a reliable wedding florist and trust her expertise – your flowers will look absolutely gorgeous!

  • There will be at least one detail that will really stress you out. Your florist may not find the blooms you wanted or the shade you wanted. Your chosen flowers may be in off-season and too expensive for your budget. Whatever it is, rest assured that a good florist will help you find solutions that work excellently for you. In the end, you will love the “replacements” just as much (if not more!) than what you originally had in mind.

Be sure your groomsmen have the right boutonnieres for Spring!

Allusion Photography

You and your groom are the most important “parts” of the Big Day. But you surely believe your wedding party is very important too! How to create superb boutonnieres for your groomsmen and how to make sure they are inspired by the warm season outside? We have gathered some ideas to inspire you, so read on and find out more:

  • These pretty non-floral elements have been very popular in the last few years – and we can definitely see why. They are unique and they make for the perfect pieces of décor for a rustic-chic wedding. So, if you want a wedding inspired by the country side, boutonnieres that incorporate succulents and greenery would be a really wonderful choice!
  • With its amazing fragrance and delicate looks, lavender couldn’t be more suitable for a wedding in the warm season. Match sprigs of lavender with purple white spider mums to create beautiful summer-y boutonnieres for the groomsmen.
  • They have been increasingly popular with weddings too – and truth be told, they can be absolutely gorgeous. Wild and delicate at the same time, wildflowers are the perfect complement for a wedding that’s casual and unique at the same time – so they will surely look amazing as boutonnieres too.
  • White roses. Classy and pure, white roses are an all-time wedding favorite – so it is worth considering the option if you want your wedding to be traditionally elegant and fancy. Pair mini white roses with ribbons that match your wedding color and your groomsmen’s boutonniere will look really beautiful!

Spring has arrived! And what better way to celebrate than incorporating it into your wedding?!

Allusion Photography

As one of the most beautiful and most loved seasons, spring is an all-time favorite among brides of all kinds – and if you’re one of the ones who have chosen to tie the knot in this splendid season, you know very well why it makes for the perfect option.

How to incorporate the delicacy and elegance of spring into your Big Day? Here are some ideas you will love:

  • Flowery ceremony. Your wedding ceremony is one of the most important moments of your life – so you will surely want to create a décor for it that speaks about the importance of this event. For an awe-inspiring ceremony décor, we suggest you go wild on your florals: lush bouquets to line up the aisle, flower-decorated chuppahs and even flower petals for the aisle make for wow décor pieces everyone will love.
  • Low-rise centerpieces. Of course, tall centerpieces are still an elegant choice – but why not make your wedding centerpieces a bit more unique by going for the low-rise ones? The secret to creating elegant low-rise centerpieces is to choose arrangements that are very opulent and generous.
  • Special chairs. Your wedding reception décor is not consisted of centerpieces only – so make sure to bring spring into every detail of this special party. For example, chairs with floral prints on them will look extremely beautiful when paired with simpler table linens and flower centerpieces that go with the prints on the chairs.
