Flower Friday: Flowers In Your Ceremony

03 30 2012

Today a floral look at the ceremonial location: often times a ceremonial stage is in order, and often this area also needs color and a bit of a floral element {or in some cases a lot of a floral element}. Brides often struggle with how to avoid blocking the natural scenery they have chosen their venue for, or how to dress up and dramatize a blank or plain slate, all while creating a place that finishes off and makes sense of where to stand and how to stage this area.  Today a bit of visual inspiration, imagine any of these without the floral element and suddenly the power of a bloom is crystal clear.

This wood, branch, and babies breath arbor ensemble is dreamy to consider making vows under. An organic mess of whimsy, just the right amount of white bloom added to the wood elements creates something just special enough for a wedding while also sticking with the organic nature of the setting.

Opulence would be a great description for the luxury that clearly surrounds this ceremony site. A full carpet of white petals leads to draping of romantic fabrics and elaborate hanging chandeliers. But what really makes this work? The luscious grouping of flowers around the columns and fabric, without these full arrangements of roses, stock, and large neutral toned blooms this just wouldn’t feel the same!

Perhaps your chosen place to wed is a clean blank slate and all you need is an amazing floral arrangement to make it just the perfect place to say I do! These likely will be {or will be amongst} your largest floral pieces in your order, and it just may be necessary to spend some bucks here, but a good florist will help you make creative use of these lovely larger arrangements and maximize your budget while accommodating the necessary scale. Usually the scale of an aisle or backdrop {be it a blank wall or a grove of trees} demands something substantial in size.

One last visual inspiration for the day. Often times a wedding canopy can be referred to us a “chuppah”, stemming from a Jewish wedding tradition. You do not have to be Jewish to implement something of this nature into your ceremonial floral decor. What I love about this canopy, the richness of color in the fabrics accompanied by the English garden roses based floral arrangements. The whole ensemble sets the tone for a lush, rich, and romantic affair in a very simple and almost unlikely ceremony site.
