Eight Fresh Flower Wedding Ideas

Using flowers in wedding celebrations is a tradition that (ahem!) stems back thousands of years. Today, couples spend 8 to 10 percent of their total wedding budget on flowers, according to The Knot, and many of them book a professional florist as one of the early steps in wedding planning.

But beyond the traditional bouquets and table decor, what are some new ways to incorporate these natural beauties into a ceremony and reception? See our list below—and for more ideas, check out our Flower Power Pinterest board!

1) For the bride: Start with a wedding dress adorned in floral lace appliqué, like this one from Heidi Elnora.

2) For the groom: For a trendy gentleman, try a tie with a simple daisy print or a garden-inspired pattern that matches the bridesmaids’ dresses.

3) For the girls: Wrist corsages for the ‘maids and moms are a fun, retro alternative to bouquets. Or do both! There’s really no such thing as too many flowers.

4) For the décor: A monogram made of big blooms is a Southern-inspired touch we love. It also makes a great prop for photos!

5) For the drinks: Pretty edible flowers dress up a mixed drink. Use daisies, nasturtiums or violas for a pop of color.

6) For the dessert: More edible beauty on this cake that’s covered in pansies. (Plus, it’s an easy DIY!)

7) For the gifts: Centerpieces that double as favors are win-win. Encourage guests to take home mini-bouquets at the end of the night.

8) For the pup: Doesn’t your furry friend deserve to dress up too? Try a floral wreath—even if it’s only on long enough for pictures!
