Install Dramatic Floral Arches Overlooking the Vineyard

Floral arches infuse your wedding with beauty, drama, and color that seamlessly blend with the French countryside’s ambiance. They become a natural focal point during the ceremony and create a luxe backdrop for capturing special moments for the happy couple. Whether you prefer rose blossoms and pampas grass for a boho vibe or flowers reminiscent of lavender fields, these arches can be adorned with cascading greenery, reminiscent of the vines that thrive in French vineyards.

Coordinate Springtime Wedding Bouquets and Dresses

Whether the bride chooses a traditional white dress or something more unique in color, it’s important to coordinate springtime flowers with the elegant attire. Consider peonies, hydrangeas, and roses to create a posh Parisian bouquet. Enhance it with brunia berries, stock flowers, and greenery like fresh eucalyptus for a well-rounded floral look. Don’t hesitate to incorporate bold colors if that’s your heart’s desire and it perfectly complements the gown.

Set Centerpieces on Outdoor Chateau Reception Tables

Outdoor receptions in the warm French sun are incredibly charming, thanks to the stunning natural setting. Elevate the celebration with elegant floral centerpieces; place vases filled with dahlias, roses, and graceful greenery like sword ferns on pale blue table linens, mirroring the sky. To add contrast and capture the wild beauty of the French countryside, introduce accent blooms like blue thistle for a hint of drama and a meadow-inspired feel.

Adorn Seating and Other Architectural Elements with Flowers

Transform your venue into a lush and organic space by embellishing table edges, seating, door frames, and planters with vibrant flower arrangements. Custom designs bring a sense of abundance and natural beauty to the space. It’s another wonderful opportunity to utilize purple flowers that remind you of the rolling lavender fields prevalent in the French countryside. Consider using baby’s breath or purple statice as accent blooms to add volume and texture to these displays.

Decorate Parisian Cakes and Desserts with Fresh Blooms

At a French Country-themed wedding reception, don’t miss the chance to enhance cakes, confections, and desserts with beautiful, fresh flowers. You can also bring in bicycle symbolism to pay homage to the region’s favored mode of transportation. Another lovely option is to strategically position vibrant peony arrangements in tones that match the desserts. For a twist of whimsy, serve pastel-colored macarons alongside bright and cheerful blossoms.
