Put a twist into the traditional wedding flower arrangements and be inspired with some of these sweet ideas.
Mythical Maids. Instead of using bouquets during your wedding, get pretty delicate wreaths for your bridesmaids and let them wear it as a hair dress. Think about fairy princesses and ancient goddesses-blossoms or greens can do the magic. You can try using yellow daisies, stalks of wheat or stephanotis. Offer your maids cute and tiny purses to carry with them down that aisle or ask them to clasp their hands immaculately as they process.
Petal Power. If you want an aesthetically stunning send off, furnish your wedding guests with nice paper cones or maybe teeny baskets filled with flower petals to throw instead of using confetti or rice. These items can often be uncomfortable especially when it falls down on your dress! Get a memorable escape from your guests while getting showered with a fragrant floral cloud.
Choose your wedding centerpiece. Sometimes, even the simplest blooms can look fabulous if arranged in multiples. For your wedding centerpieces, ask your New York wedding florist to arrange bunches of Queen Anne Lace and variegated ivy. Get that elegant, rustic and natural look for these centerpieces. You may also cluster flower filled vases (you can also use jars, milk bottles).
Your grooms flowers. Stylish grooms and groomsmen nowadays are trying to walk on the wild side, studding their individual lapels with mini sunflowers, calla lilies and etc. Exotic boutonnieres look nice and sexy and will definitely refresh an exhausted tux get up. For your groom, design something extra special and then accent it with a ribbon that represents his personality- stripes for chic, polka for lighthearted and plaid for preppy.
Tied and true. Try to show a little stem. Unstructured and ribbon tied bouquets are in the trend, often in monochromatic and vivid hues. Wrap your bouquet with brightly colored ribbons or sumptuous fabrics like velvet, organza or satin.
Added wedding floral arrangements. In your reception hall, decorate freestanding tables with floral accents. Add low bowls with red roses, cylindrical vases with calla lilies or tall vases with cherries.
Best finishing touch. Whether you opt for tussy mussy Victorian era arrangement or a fabric wedding bouquet wrap, make sure you come up with something unique. Cover your handle with a velvety fabric, braid another one around the handle and develop something with a corset style. Talk with your New York wedding florist about his/her suggested presentation ideas.
