9 Ways to Incorporate Florals into your Big Day

Flowers are one of our favorite wedding day details! While we typically see most couples include them in centerpieces and bouquets, today we’re sharing a few more ways to incorporate stunning florals into your big day. From sweets and treats to accessories and attire, the possibilities are endless!

One: Invitations 

Invitations are the first things your guests will see! Think of them as a sneak peek into your big day. Ginger Creative did a beautiful job incorporating a beautiful floral pattern in the envelopes and beyond without it being overpowering. To enhance these details on your wedding day, ask your planner or photographer to add flowers into the flat lay.

Tip: Work with your stationery designer to create complementing vintage floral stamps!

Two: Menswear 

This one may catch you off guard! But, if you’re looking for subtle ways to tie in your floral theme or add a touch of detail, the groom’s suit is the perfect place. Atelier by Ensemble created this custom set that has a subtle, and not too feminine, floral overlay. In just the right lighting it captures your eyes. Not to mention, it really elevates the groom’s look. If you’re saying I do in a garden, beautiful Rocky Mountain field or modern-chic venue this suit is for you!

Three: Wedding Gown and Veil 

This bride is rocking a stunning gown from Blush & Raven. With a floral lace overlay, it only makes sense to complement the design with a Daphne Newman veil. The pop of flowers on the veil adds an element of fun to the bride’s style.

A floral veil also works great on simpler, more classic gowns for a pop of pattern.

Four: Bouquets and Boutonnieres

Bouquets and boutonnieres are the most common way to include flowers on your big day. Petal & Vow used ranunculus’ in both the groom’s boutonniere and the bride’s bouquet to tie them together.

Tip: The wedding parties’ bouquets are great to transition into your centerpieces. After the ceremony, pop them into the center vases to ensure you’re not letting those beautiful blooms go to waste!

Five: Wedding Arch

While many couples opt to have a structure decorated in florals, we love the unique approach taken below! It’s a subtle way to decorate where you will say your vows to one another, but it isn’t the star of the show! This setup could easily be repurposed on the head table as well. Wrap the hanging flowers around the table as a way to set it apart.

Six: Decor

The decor is another common place to utilize stunning flowers! From vases filled with beautiful blooms to accents like table napkins, menus, place cards, pillows, or rugs, the possibilities are endless. Work with a planner like Dream Big Wedding and Events to brainstorm unique ways you can bring your wedding day to life with blooms and more!

Seven: Signature Cocktails

What’s a wedding reception without a signature cocktail? We absolutely adore including signature cocktails into your big day. From naming the cocktails after your pets or something special to the two of you or crafting a cocktail with your favorite liquor, it’s a fun way to add a little personality to the evening. If florals are an important detail to the day-use petals from your bouquet as accents in the drinks. You can even opt for edible petals or floral liquors like elderberry!

Eight: Sweets

Sweets are a fun, and scrumptious way to add floral elements to your big day! We love how Petal & Vow used the same florals from the bouquet to the stunning cake by Sugar Sweet Cake Company. If you want the entire cake to be edible, work with your cake artist to incorporate sugar flowers in the design!

For something extra special, Bowie Mae created pressed flowers in cookies. These make for great treats at cocktail hour, party favors, or plate decor!

Nine: Reception Outfit

We’re always a fan of an outfit change! If you’re changing out of you’re wedding gown into a fun, party jumpsuit, add a hat decorated with a pop of florals for a unique touch. The look below is perfect for a backyard summer I do, vineyard vows, or late afternoon rehearsal dinner!
