A floral wedding theme is always popular and pretty, and in the spring and summer months we have an abundance of beautiful natural blossoms to choose from. Fortunate are the bride and groom who can hold their wedding out of doors and let nature share in their day - providing some dramatic natural effects and making a gorgeous backdrop to photos.
If the weather's likely to be variable, hire a marquee, and if the budget allows, put up an arbour to train flowers over for those special pictures. But if the weather won't allow such luxury, you can incorporate the freshness of nature and let flowers run riot in your design scheme.
If it's in season, use your favourite flower to use as your wedding theme, whether it be roses, lilies, orchids or daffodils. Or think about hiring pot plants to decorate the venue, so that they can live to bloom again another day! Then again, paper or silk flowers will look pretty all year round - use them for corsages, bouquets, headdresses and table favours. Choose confetti made of dried petals instead of the usual paper kind. Check out our rose petal wedding confetti, it looks pretty and is environmentally friendly at the same time! You can even have the wedding cake decorated with fresh flowers!
Match your outfit and your bridesmaids' to the floral theme. If you're carrying pink roses, go for delicate pastel colours and soft designs to complement the flowers. (Our Rosie bridesmaid dresses scattered with little delicate organza roses would match the theme perfectly and look gorgeous on angelic little flower girls!) Sculptural white lilies? Keep it simple and classic, with Grecian gowns of white silk. Winter wedding? Red or green velvet will look gorgeous, with seasonal bouquets of ivy and bright berries. Whatever the weather, it's a great idea to bring the outside in!
