How to incorporate flowers throughout your entire wedding day

If you love fresh flowers as much as we do, then you love to have them around you all the time! And is there a more appropriate day to be surrounded by gorgeous flowers than your wedding day? From the minute you wake up to the moment you go to bed, here are all the ways we love for incorporating flowers all day!

1. Wake up to flowers

Who doesn’t love the idea of waking up to gorgeous flowers? And especially on your wedding day? Order a special arrangement from your florist and have it delivered directly to your house. Place it by your bed the day before the wedding as a sweet reminder when you wake up that today is the day!


2. Use flowers in your hair

I love the look of flowers in hair. If you are not wanting to use flowers in your own hair for your wedding, consider it for your bridesmaids or – even cute – your flower girl(s)!


3. Incorporate flowers into your getting ready area

The morning of your wedding is such a fun part of the day. It’s you and all your girls getting ready, having mimosas, and snacking on yummy foods! Why not have some fresh flowers adorning the areas where you are getting ready?


4. Bouquets

We all love this one. Your bouquet is probably one of the first exciting things that you will see for the first time on your wedding day. Opening the box and seeing it there for reals is the BEST feeling! Whether it’s a tightly-packed arrangement of a cascading waterfall of flowers, this is definitely the highlight of all the florals on your big day!


5. Sign Adornment

Don’t just welcome your guests. Welcome them with flowers! That extra touch on your signage lets guests know that you care enough to add all the details that day! Small touches like this are what makes weddings special and unique!


6. Aisle Markers

Rows of chairs can be boring. Dress them up a bit with some fresh flowers! It doesn’t have to be every aisle…unless you’re feeling super extra! We also love the look of lining the walkway with flowers too!


7. Ceremony Backdrop/Arbor

Flower sculptures and installments a really cool way to create a beautiful backdrop for your ceremony. All eyes will be on you two; give your guests a gorgeous backdrop to look at too!


8. Boutonnieres

Boutonnieres are an awesome way to incorporate flowers as well as other materials. Use this adornment to reflect not only your wedding style, but your groom’s personal style, taste, and interests as well!


9. Entrance Markers

Just like your welcome signs, adorning your entrance with flowers creates such a wow factor for your guests upon their arrival.


10. Table Décor

Whether it florals on the table as centerpieces or runners, canopies hanging over your tables, or florals on the backs of your chairs, table decor is a terrific way to use flowers on your wedding day! There are limitless options for this space. Work with your florist to create a space that really ties in your wedding theme here.

11. Rose Petals on Wedding Bed

At the end of your wedding day, what could be more romantic than rose petals on your bed? Ask the front desk of your accommodations to set this up with your turn-down service. Walking into this will be a wonderful way to finish off your amazing day!
