If you absolutely adore flowers and want to use an abundance of beautiful blooms on your wedding day, then go right ahead! There are so many places you can incorporate them aside from your bouquet and reception centerpieces, and there’s really no set rules on how many flowers you should use. To help get you inspired, here we share eight unique ways to incorporate flowers into your wedding day.
In the Dressing Rooms
What better way to set the mood than having flowers in the room you are getting ready in with your bridal party? Beautiful flowers like tinted roses create feelings of happiness and that is certainly the mood that you want to have while preparing for one of the most important days of your life. Plus, if you’re planning to get photos taken while you’re getting ready, flowers will look great in the background.
In Your Hair
Consider working flowers into your hairstyle, especially if you’re having a rustic or vintage-themed wedding. At your wedding hair trial, bring along a trial hairpiece or some flowers so your stylist can practice placing them. Just make sure you don’t go too overboard with the floral headpiece so that you don’t draw attention away from your wedding dress.

At The Ceremony
Look through your florist’s books to see what kind of floral decorations they can create at your wedding. You can have floral arrangements, a floral trellis, a floral Chuppah, or swags of flowers. You can also line the aisle with flower arrangements, which can later be moved to the reception later to save money.
As Place Cards
Instead of traditional place cards, have yours placed in a vase of your chosen wedding flowers that your guests pick up and take to their assigned table. Once everyone takes their seats, the flowers will be an added decoration to each table. As a bonus, each person will be able to take vase, so it can do double duty as a wedding favor.
As A Chandelier

Flowers hanging from the ceiling can be an excellent way to make sure your entire reception space has flowers, from top to bottom. Having a chandelier of flowers over the dance floor so your guests can enjoy them while they dance the night away. This will also look stunning in photographs.
On Your Wedding Cake
Sugar flowers are actually more expensive than real flowers, so you will be saving money by using them on your wedding cake. Your baker will know how to incorporate the flowers in the cleanest way and they can also help remove the flowers when the cake is being cut.

On the Backs of Chairs
You can have arrangements made for the backs of you and your husband’s chair at the reception. This is a great way to mark your special seats and lots of people may be stopping by your chair, so they will be the centre of attention throughout your reception.
In the Seats of Loved Ones Who Can’t Attend
If you have lost a loved one or they are not able to attend, consider placing flowers on the seat where they would have sat. This is a tasteful way to honor them and will be appreciated by all those who attend your big day.
There are so many great ways to incorporate flowers into your wedding. The key is making it fit with your theme and wedding colors. Consider using the same flowers you use for your bouquet to create a streamlined look in all aspects of your special day.
