If you’re looking for ways to make your wedding flowers completely unique, there are lots of great options available. Your bouquet can be embellished in several ways to ensure that your flowers are as unique as your wedding day. Whether you are a DIY bride, or you’re working with your florist to transform your flowers into something even more spectacular, here are a few tips for giving your wedding flowers a completely personal touch.
1. Get Creative with Containers
You can easily set your wedding flowers apart from the crowd by providing props for them. The centerpieces for your reception tables can be a fun and funky way to give your wedding some flair. A selection of vases (take your bridesmaids and comb the secondhand shops for great variety), pretty birdcages, watering cans and other props will provide a clever pop to your centerpieces and make the display of your gorgeous flowers simple and unique.
2. Create Floral Place Cards
Using miniature vases and flowers to create place cards gives a unique look and feel to your wedding reception. Using tiny versions of your wedding flowers and placing them in very small jars, or placing a single flower in a delicate bud vase gives you the opportunity to largely forego centerpieces while also giving your guests a small token to take home. Create beautiful name tags to attach to them and voila! Place cards, wedding flowers and wedding tokens, all taken care of in the same beautiful little package. If you have the time (and money), you can even create specialized tags for each guest with reusable luggage tags.
3. Use Your Favourite Flowers
There’s no law saying you have to use certain flowers with other flowers for your wedding. Every flower pairs beautifully with other flowers and you get to decide exactly which blossoms are included in your wedding flowers, so make choices that you love. Your wedding flowers will be exceptionally unique with your own creations. Even when it comes to colors, there are no hard and fast rules for creating your own arrangements. You don’t have to stick to a single color, or even two or three. Go wild and include the colors and blooms you adore!
4. Tie it Up with a Bow
Ribbons can be a wonderful addition to your bouquet. Wrapping the stems of your wedding flowers in colorful ribbons can add a touch of whimsy and style, while also helping to keep your bouquet intact throughout your big day. Depending on the type of ribbon you choose, you can completely change the look and feel of your wedding flowers. The stems of your bouquet can also be wrapped in a piece of lace to add an elegant, vintage flair; other types of fabric can be used to give your flowers a truly unique feel.
