In most weddings, the florals set the scene but while minimalism is in, your blooms can still make a statement. It’s safe to say that we could all benefit from looking at beautiful, colorful things right now, and thinking creatively about your wedding flowers will not disappoint.
Even though weddings these days are taking on all different shapes and forms, flowers are still a major part of many celebrations. From traditional roses to exotic blooms, flowers are the perfect way to breathe life, color, and energy into your wedding day.
Whether you’re eloping, re-planning a wedding that was previously postponed, hosting a small get-together in your backyard, or anything in between, here are a few ways to make your wedding flowers extraordinary.
1. Incorporate Exotic Blooms
You may not be able to have the destination wedding of your dreams, but you can bring the islands to you!
Incorporate exotic flowers and fillers to your bouquets and you’ll have everyone feeling like they’re right there with you on a luxurious getaway.
2. Create a Moment For Your Fur Baby
Make your fur babies feel extra special with a floral collar!
Not only will the sweet gesture create cohesive photographic memories, but it’ll also let everyone know how important they are to your love story.
3. Remember Loved Ones
Many of us going into our wedding days with a heavy heart remember those who can’t be there to celebrate with us. Creating a charm or locket to attach to your bouquet will make sure your loved ones are never too far away.
4. Minimal? No Problem
If you’re into the minimal aesthetic, don’t fret, you can still make a big statement with your floral arrangements. Try sticking to one singular flower like the ever so elegant orchid or go monochrome by choosing one shade for the entire bouquet.
5. A Spin on Tradition
If exotic blooms and minimal styles aren’t for you, try incorporating a different species of the popular rose or untraditional greenery. Like this gorgeous bouquet, cabbage roses and eucalyptus make a romantic statement. Other flowers like fringe tulips, ranunculus, dahlias or even anemone can add a spin on the traditional bridal bouquet.
