Every bride needs a beautiful bouquet and this is one of the most common places you will see flowers during a wedding. The bridesmaids will also have bouquet, typically that are smaller than the brides and the groom and groomsman will also have boutonnieres that match in style or color.

Around the Altar

No matter what type of ceremony you are having, you can use flowers to decorate the ceremony, focusing especially on the backdrop of where you and your groom will be standing when you are saying your “I do’s.” Not only is that a location that your wedding photographer will be taking tons of photos of you both, but it is the place where all your guests will be watching the two of you recite your vows to one another and share your first kiss as newlyweds!

Along the Aisle

Flowers are so romantic and having them line the aisle, or even flower petals on the floor along the aisle is such a great way to incorporate your wedding color into your ceremony.
