Creative Ideas for Wedding Flowers

By Society of American Florists

  • Welcome gifts for out-of-town guests and members of the bridal parties.
  • Thank you gifts for those people who make the bride and groom’s day special.
  • Rehearsal dinner and wedding brunch décor.
  • Decorations for the wedding transportation.
  • Floating arrangements for ponds or pools.
  • Accessories for the bride’s hair, in some cases replacing the more traditional veil.

At the Ceremony

  • Adorn the ceremony entrance with flower-filled urns that can later be moved to the reception.
  • Use flowers and candlelight at different levels to give dimension to design.
  • Use a single rose to mark the seats of both the groom’s and the bride’s mothers.
  • Attach flower petals to a large ribbon for an elegant decoration piece.

At the Reception

  • Garland the center of the head table with flowers, foliage and votive candles.
  • Use the bridesmaids’ bouquets to create lavish buffet table decorations or to surround the cake.
  • Have your florist create guest table centerpieces with 4-5 separate clusters of flowers so that each couple can take a part of the centerpiece home.
  • Float large fragrant flowers, such as open roses or gardenias, in crystal containers with votive candles.
  • Sprinkle rose petals on the cake table and walkways.
  • Have the toss bouquet double as a cake top.
  • Decorate goblets and cake knives with flowers.
  • Use a cake plate with a mound of flowers on it as a centerpiece.
  • Use roses to make a dome at the top of a glass bowl filled with pretty rocks, and place a wreath around the bowl to highlight it.
  • Toss rose petals instead of rice as the bride and groom leave.
