3 IDEAS FOR STATEMENT FLOWERS FOR YOUR WEDDING CEREMONY
1. A PAIR OF EPIC URNS
We almost love a pair of statement ceremony urns as much as we love an arch, they can provide so much impact and that special ‘wow’ factor at a wedding. Our style is known for being very loose and natural and not at all formal or contrived or overly ‘done’. We tend to prefer for the flowers and foliage to be free and do their own lovely thing with their beautiful shapes and lines. We always try not to trim them into tight arrangements. While it may not be everyone’s style, it’s very much ours and something brides come to us for as they too love that feminine, soft look.
A pair of urns at the end of the aisle can be the first thing not only guests, but the bride all see as they enter the ceremony room, giving that ‘wow’ first impression and then providing many a photo opportunity. The bigger the better we say!
2. CHURCH WEDDINGS
If you happen to be getting married in a church, then there is of course the option of urns at either end of the aisle, but also the chance of dressing a font, the pew ends, steps, other stonework that might be present and anything the vicar will allow to be dressed.
3. DRESSING THE AISLE
The aisle is one of the most important styling details of the ceremony, as not only will the bride will be making her way down it towards the altar on her walk up to her groom, it then sets the scene for the couple as they turn and exit, once married. There are many ways to dress the aisle from pretty posies tied to the aisle-side chair ends, storm lanterns leading the way, lit with romantic candlelight,scattered petals either side or even a beautiful full floral meadow, known as the ‘living aisle’ which is very much in vogue at the moment.
