If you’re a rustic bride, your flowers should reflect that with a natural elegance. Opt for centerpieces that look laid back and be sure to put them on display using old wooden boxes or a collection of old flowerpots. You can also place your blooms on top of tree rings to incorporate nature into your wedding decor. Place canning jars on each table and fill them with fresh-cut herbs. For your bouquet, it should look like you just went through the garden and picked out all of your favorites. It may have a prairie feel and include buds like black-eyed susans, purple coneflowers, various berries and even seedpods.
If you have a simple wedding style, stick to clean and crisp when it comes to your blooms. The more minimal, the better. Try carrying a single stem of your favorite flower down the aisle or hold onto an armful of calla lilies. For your centerpieces, consider sticking to a monochromatic color palette and using containers with clean lines.
If you’re all about creating drama and elegance, a romantic style of fragrant, petal-packed blooms might be for you. Opt for centerpieces that overflow with blossoms and use luxurious containers like crystal vases, silver compotes and stone urns. Sprinkle extra flower petals on the tabletops for some added romance. As for your bouquet, think sweet scents. Flowers for a romantic style include peonies, lilies of the valley, garden roses and sweet peas. Choose one or a combination of them to stick to the theme of romance.
Brides with a more modern, bold style should have blooms to match. Choose flowers that really stand out against your dress, like a bouquet of orange, pink and red ranunculus wrapped in a satin ribbon. For a more luxe look, try an arrangement of white poppy anemones with dark centers. As for your centerpieces, you can’t go wrong with all white. A classic arrangement of white peonies wrapped in burlap offer a modern touch.
