Fab fridays: Flowers & decor

Wedding is the auspicious ceremony to rejoice & celebrate the marriage or the union of a couple in the bonds of holy matrimony. A get - together where all those known to the happy couple, friends and relatives gather to share the joy as the bride and the groom vow to spend the rest of their lives together. An auspicious day as this, sure calls for a lot of attention. Every wedding planner  puts in maximum effort to make his event the most outstanding and the talk of the town. Every little detail is pre-planned and taken care of. Decorations are an integral part of the entire wedding arrangements.

Renowned decorators are appointed to set the mood of the occasion with their creative and aesthetic designs and settings. Flowers are one of the most important elements in a wedding. They find an important place in the bride’s bouquet, the groom’s coat and also in the bridesmaid’s flowers. In addition to serving these traditional purposes, flowers have been an indispensable element of decorations too.

Flowers are the pinnacle of beauty. They have the innate ability to express emotions. They are used to set the mood and tone in different occasions. Nothing can replace this vibrant medium to exhibit your happiness and joy. With styles that best express your personal taste, flowers are key factors that assist you in creating the perfect look for that special day.

As a part of decorations, flowers are used in centerpieces. Aesthetically arranged blossoms in a centerpiece have the ability to dominate and grab all the attention. These natural beauties are a very simple yet elegant form of decorations. They are used as welcome and also as thank you gifts for the guests. They are also being used to decorate each dining table. The table d├ęcor is also a very important aspect that determines the final beauty of the setting. The containers that hold the flowers, the candles that surround them are also 
gaining importance in the wedding floral arrangements.

In contrast to the traditional trend of keeping the entire decoration matching, Individuality has crept in and dominated the latest decorations. Contrast colored blooms is arranged in combinations to serve a change and variety in the decorations. Bold and powerful arrangements have taken over the old romantic arrangements in most weddings.
Laces, ribbons, pearls, etc are additional accessories that are used to add effect to these flower decorations. Imaginatively arranged flowers along with these accessories have the ability to make a stupendous striking statement.

Irrespective of the budget, floral decorations have the potential to make a big design statement. Flowers of all varieties are being used to enhance the special day in many non – traditional ways too. They are also used as floating arrangements in ponds or pools.

The decorations at your nuptials can be considered one of the most remarkable things you plan. Your guests will gauge your wedding ceremony by what their eyes behold. 

Below are more examples how flowers can turn the whole wedding function into a magical place.

One prominent thing to consider when you’re choosing flowers for your wedding is whether or not the flowers you hope to have are in season. If you plan your arrangements in advance, you can avoid problems like flowers being out of season or not being able to make the arrangements you would like. There are many factors to consider including what flowers are in season, allergies of the bride or groom, the color scheme of the las vegas wedding, and the budget available for floral services. Every bride has her own favorite flower, but putting together beautiful bouquets, corsages, and centerpieces is more puzzling than just selecting one particular flower.

Moreover we also come up with some ideas of flowers arrangement ideas captured from Martha Stewart Weddings with color scheme ideas. For now we feature the pastel colors.

Pink Centerpieces

Hundreds of roses in cream, pink, and coral are arranged in floral-foam cones to form topiaries and set in silver vessels; handcrafted silk flowers are placed among the arrangements at Jessica and Cody's wedding at Tiffany's. The tables shone in pale-pink linens topped with golden runners. Table design by florist Matthew Robbins 

Pink Bridal Bouquet

Bride's bouquet consists of lush pink peonies, 'Candy Bianca,' 'Champagne,' and 'Majolica' roses, white sweet peas, and variegated ranunculus. The stems are wrapped with blush silk and organza ribbons to correspond with her color palette of pink and white

Pink Cupcakes

Miniature vanilla cupcakes sit on a pink Depression-glass pedestal that had belonged to bride Melody's great-grandmother. The smaller sweets are ideal for younger guests

Bridesmaid Bouquets

Just a few lush Coral Charm peonies and hosta leaves create lovely bridesmaid bouquets that packed a lot of pink punch in this formal wedding in Chicago.

Pink Favor Packaging

These favors -- vanilla and chocolate sandwich cookies -- are packed in cellophane and wrapped with a band of Japanese-patterned paper in shades of pink. Each has a sweet sentiment about marriage tucked inside. Alternatively we can replace cookies with macaroons or candies :)

Floral Sendoff
In keeping with the theme of this Belmont, California wedding, which was vintage glamour, newlyweds Melissa and Sam step into a rented 1950s Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud after their reception. Gold ribbon draped across the hood and tied to the hood ornament suspends a wreath of garden roses and their tiny buds in shades of pink, peach, and cream. The bride and groom were surprised to discover that the car's leather interior was aqua blue, a color prominent throughout their wedding

Pink and White Ice Cream Treats

Mini ice creams in the form of strawberries and pears are served during Chloe and Matt's reception

Peony Centerpiece

Festive votive candles and porcelain Asian bowls, each holding a single peony, decorate the room where this cocktail hour for Liezel and Christopher was held

Guest Book Table

Paperweights decoupaged with pink roses anchor a parchment-color paper scroll for family and friends to sign at Melissa and Sam's wedding. A vintage ribbon fastened it closed. Above it, snowberries and pink and white garden roses were arranged in an antique blue-enamel loving cup
