We love flowers. That’s why we created clear floral boxes––to keep your blooms fresh and beautiful. And with wedding planning always a popular topic for discussion, we thought it would be appropriate to talk about the ways you can use florals in your wedding. From the boutonniere to the bridal bouquet, from the centerpieces to the rose petals in the flower girl’s basket, flowers have always been a big part of weddings. But why limit yourself to the traditional uses of flowers? We’ve come up with a list of 7 unique ways to use flowers in your wedding.
1. Use flowers in your hair
Adding flowers to your hair can be an unexpected and beautiful accessory. You can weave individual blooms into your hair or wear a floral crown––both will make for a breathtaking bridal look. You can also make floral crowns for your bridesmaids or flower girls. Choose something delicate or add a pop of color––either is sure to wow.
2. Use flowers to decorate your cake
Instead of fondant, try decorating your cake with fresh flowers. No matter how many blooms you choose to decorate your cake with, the final result will be sure to get a lot of attention from your guests. When it’s time to cut the cake, just remove the flowers before serving.
3. Use flowers as your party favor
Wedding favors aren’t necessarily a must-have at every wedding, but for those who choose to go this route, it might be a good idea to consider flowers as the gift. Some creative options are tiny succulents, individual cut flower stems, or a packet of flower seeds. Flowers are a great (and relatively inexpensive) way to thank your guests in a memorable way.
4. Use flowers as escort cards
Instead of a typical 2” by 3” card that tells your guests where to find their seats, consider attaching the note to a flower instead. Not only does it double as a wedding favor, but it’s a beautiful and unique detail to add to your perfect day. A cute little vase or fresh-cut flowers are both gorgeous options. The sky’s the limit!
5. Use flowers in a monogram
Displaying the initials of the bride and groom is becoming a popular trend. But instead of following this trend in the same fashion as everyone else, use flowers to make your wedding monogram pop!
6. Use flowers as napkin rings
If you just can’t get enough of fresh flowers, try using them as a napkin ring. It’s a fun, memorable, and creative way to add a pop of color to your place settings.
7. Use flowers to create a photo backdrop
It’s the perfect place for your guests to snap a picture with you on your big day. Photo backdrops are becoming more popular at weddings––often people will create a chalkboard wall, a glitter wall, or a wall of strung lights. Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box! Your wall of flowers will be as unique as the love you’re celebrating. It’s the perfect way to add your personal touch to a fun wedding decoration.
