If you’re planning the floral designs for your big day, the team at The Wedding Secret have several ideas for flower décor and bouquets which are very out of the ordinary.
Amaze your guests and decorate your venue in the most unexpected way. Be creative and experiment around with our unusual flower ideas. You need to start thinking ‘What will make my wedding more special and unforgettable?’
Real & artificial flower backdrops are becoming more popular and work brilliantly as a backdrop for your ceremony. You can also use it as a background for photos.
Bring the Outside In
If you’re thinking of decorating your venue mainly with flowers, why not go all out and bring the outdoors in? Bringing planted trees into your venue space and decorating beams and walls with foliage and flowers can be a magical way to transform your venue into a dream woodland space. It means you can have a fairy-tale woodland wedding without having to actually be outside.
You don’t have to eat them, but certain vegetables are beautiful and look absolutely fabulous in table centrepieces. Vegetables at a wedding certainly are something incredibly unexpected and can complement a number of different themes. For an autumn wedding, carving out a pumpkin and using it instead of a vase for your flowers is a fun way of bringing a seasonal theme to your day.
Add Some Fruit
We’ve had vegetables and now it’s time for fruit. Grapes complement flowers fantastically, particularly in centrepieces. Experiment around as different fruits have different effects. Dried oranges are awesome, particularly in wreath decoration. Not only do they look vibrant, they also smell divine!
We don’t mean actual curtains, but hanging connected flowers in the style of a beaded curtain is a beautiful and unique way to decorate the entrances and doorways in your venue. They can instantly transform a space and are a quirky way of decorating your venue in ways no one else has.
Dried flowers are a great addition to rustic and vintage themed weddings and they are becoming increasingly popular. They are long lasting, enabling you to cherish them. Many florists work with dried flowers and can advise you which work best. Our personal favourite is a mixture of dry wheat lavender which is a beautiful alternative to a traditional bouquet.
Even if your wedding is not set in autumn, the rich colours of golds and browns are a brilliant way of mixing it up. The combination of pinecones and brown foliage make stunningly different décor and fit perfectly into a rustic themed wedding. Pinecones can also be decorated with glitter or painted…the possibilities are endless.
Instead of massive floral displays and bouquets, single blooms still have the same effect, if not better. The term less is more definitely fits with this one. Single flower bouquets such as a sunflower or a sole rose bud don’t distract from your dress. Simple and elegant. If none of these ideas take your fancy, we at least hope we have you thinking outside the box! Obviously there is nothing wrong with traditional, but if you want to make your wedding one to remember, be different and be unexpected!
