Wedding Ceremony Flowers


Flowers at the wedding ceremony add beauty, fragrance and color. When choosing flowers consider the color scheme, decor of your ceremony site. Select a few dramatic showpieces that will complement the existing decor. Decoration should be determined by the size and style of the building, the formality of the wedding and the preference of the bride, the cost and the regulation of the site.

Example of a formal decor


For a church wedding, the purpose of having flowers in the main altar is to direct the guest visual attention toward the front of the church. The flowers in the ceremony site can be elaborate or as simple as you want. In a candlelight ceremony, the stands maybe decorated with flowers and greenery for a nice effect.  For the aisle pews, a cluster of flowers, a cascade of flowers or greenery and ribbons are all popular choices.

If your ceremony site is outside you can decorate the arch or the gazebo or other structure serving as an altar with flowers and greenery.

Easy way to decorate the aisle outdoors

To save money, decorate the site with greenery only. Candles and greenery are elegant in and of themselves. You can use the greenery and flowers from your garden. Another option is to have your ceremony in a beautiful garden or by water surrounded by the nature's own splendor. It is not necessary to decorate the aisle pews. You can save money by decorating only the reserved family pews or decorate every second or third pew.



Wedding Tip: Your Local Grocery Store
To save BIG on flowers - go to your local grocery store for bridal bouquets and flower arrangements. Many times the cost of bridal bouquets and arrangements are half the price of a florist's arrangements.

We would have been a mess if not for Carolyn's help.
All of the little details that were decided along the way came together beautifully.
We had a perfect day and I wouldn't change a thing.
