FLOWERS FOR EVERYONE
Without a doubt the bride's bouquet is inevitable, it is an integral part of the dress and as such should be the first detail on which to guide future choices. The bouquet is the most intimate floral composition, it will be the most spectacular of the event and will be chosen according to the style of your dress and your height. Bouquet and wedding dress should therefore be in perfect harmony: a simple dress that embraces your figure will go with a more elaborate, but subtle bouquet; an excessively decorated dress will instead be accompanied by a voluminous and compact bouquet. An asymmetrical dress on the other hand will go very well with a creative and sparkling bouquet. There are also numerous more modern styles, such as the cascade bouquet, indicated for the dress with a train.
Among the many types of floral arrangements that you can exhibit at your wedding, some will save you money on the entire budget by covering more than one function, while others can enhance an element in particular of the ceremony or reception. Remember that all the different types of flower arrangements can be customized to be in harmony with your theme. When you choose the flowers to decorate the church and the location of the reception, make sure you keep in mind the characteristics of these buildings: sumptuous spaces require elaborate compositions, small and simple ones would risk being insignificant. Among the most popular choices in floral decorations are the flowers on the table of the wedding cake and on the chairs of the spouses, vases of flowers and plants next to the laid tables (which can then be taken home by the spouses' families as a souvenir!) And above all the most sober compositions for the altar and church pews.
For the decoration of reception tables, the eclectic look is trendy and gives a touch of sophistication that will make guests feel important too! The flowers can be collected in small vases of different heights that will contrast with candles that will create a tender and romantic atmosphere. The centerpieces may also have an appearance that expresses individuality, as if they were created specifically to represent the spouses. They can be further enriched with fruit - especially in spring - with satin ribbons, feathers, beads and anything else depending on your taste. A little trick: if the centerpiece is too high or too wide, your guests may be annoyed, so make sure you don't overdo it.
