10 Wedding Flower Arrangement Ideas

1. Mythical Maids
Instead of bouquets, why not have delicate wreaths created for your bridesmaids to wear in their hair. Think ancient goddesses or fairy princesses

2. Petal Power
For a visually stunning send-off, furnish guests with pretty paper cones or teeny baskets filled with rose petals to throw instead of rice or confetti. Escape from your guests while being showered by a fragrant cloud.

3. Find Your Center
Sometimes the simplest flowers can look spectacular in multiples. Perhaps as centerpieces, you could use dense bunches of Queen Anne's Lace and variegated ivy look elegant and lush while imparting a rustic, au natural feel.

4. Blooms for the Groom
These days, stylish grooms and groomsmen are decorating their lapels with mini calla lilies, mini sunflowers, and just about anything else. Exotic boutonnieres are bold and sexy and will refresh any tired tuxedo getup.

5. Silky Solutions
For an exquisite post wedding keepsake that won't fade or dry up, many brides are opting for silk flowers. Roses, orchids, peonies, poppies, gardenias, violets, lilies of the valley, and pansies are all available. Silk flowers can also be a cost-saver or a luxurious splurge, depending on bouquet size and the quality of the vendor's wares.

6. Tied and True
Unstructured, ribbon-tied bouquets are very popular, often in vivid, monochromatic tones.

7. Added Arrangements
For the reception why not consider decorating freestanding tables with different arrangements. Perhaps low bowls filled with ruby red roses and cherries to tall, cylindrical vases wrapped with filo leaves and filled with half a dozen calla lilies. The variety will add visual interest to your reception space.

8. What an Honor
Honor a family member through your wedding flowers. Incorporate their meaningful flowers into your bouquets and arrangements.

9. Finishing Touches
Whether you choose tussy mussy or a fabric bouquet wrap, make sure your chosen style is unique. So talk to your florist about other presentation ideas.

10. Make it Last
After all is said and done, why not think about drying and preserving your bouquet. You could have it frame or mount it behind a glass dome for example. If you're preserving the bouquet yourself, hang it upside down in a dark, airy spot, or disassemble it and air-dry the flowers individually.
