Now that you’re engaged, you’re starting to envision what your perfect wedding day will look like. You might be thinking of an outdoor wedding with nature surrounding you, or you may have the perfect indoor venue in mind. Either way, you’ll want to decorate in a style appropriate for your venue as well as for your theme. Whether you choose an indoor or outdoor setting, Walter Knoll Weddings has some great ideas for you to consider when thinking about floral decor. Here are seven of our top considerations for your indoor or outdoor wedding.
Outdoor Floral Installations
If you’re planning to have an outdoor wedding, it’s important to include flowers and colors that go with your wedding decor. Floral installations are big right now, and it’s easy to see why. They add the color and flowers you want to your wedding, all in one amazing spot. These artistic structures covered in the flowers of your choice are a great way to welcome guests to your wedding ceremony or reception, define space that might otherwise be difficult to see, and create a beautiful backdrop for photo ops!
Outdoor Floral Arches
With outdoor weddings, there’s usually not much of an altar unless you create one. While there’s nothing wrong with your officiant standing alone between the two of you, it’s helpful to add a focal point with a trellis or archway. Cover it with trailing foliage or an abundance of your wedding flowers for continuity throughout your decor.
Outdoor Seating and Floral Decor
When designing your seating for your outdoor wedding, you’ll want to include touches that make the look your own. Sprigs of blossoms or greenery that match your bridal bouquet, artfully added to every other chair or at the ends of your aisles, will go a long way in tying the entire setting’s look together. For a fun flair, place one stem of your bouquet’s flowers in each seat and let guests keep their flower as a memento of your special day.
Outdoor Aisle Floral Borders
In an outdoor wedding, defining your center aisle can be more difficult than it sounds. To help with this, use flowers or plants consistent with your theme to highlight the pathway. Line your walkway with pots of succulents in varying sizes, place stately urns filled with your wedding flowers along the way, or scatter individual petals in a creative pattern for a magical fairy tale look.
Indoor Flower Walls
If you choose to hold your wedding ceremony or reception indoors, there are some beautiful and creative ways to include flowers in your decor. Flower walls are big right now, and it’s easy to see why. Covering a piece of wall partially with strings of flowers or completely with the buds themselves, floral walls make artistic and unique backdrops for pictures or behind the couple of the hour.
Indoor Hanging Installations
For a more three-dimensional effect, hang beautiful floral designs from the rafters. Whether you include one giant floral design in the center of the room or install several smaller designs throughout the room, guests will love feeling surrounded by flowers and greenery on every side- even from above!
Indoor Traditional Flowers
There’s always a place for tradition in weddings, and sometimes it’s very appropriate to include at least a few traditional elements. Floral centerpieces, floral displays included on the food and drink tables, the DJ’s stand, and in every restroom are great ways to tie the entire event together in one stylish, flowing look. Use the bridal bouquets in the reception space for even more continuity between the ceremony and reception.
Whether you choose to celebrate your best day inside your favorite venue or outdoors, you can include flowers, plants, and beautiful living designs in either space. Adding flowers and greenery to your wedding speaks to tradition while allowing you to be as artistic as you choose.
