There are so many reasons why we absolutely love wedding garlands. These beautiful swags bring instant style to your day and you can create a garland to work with any theme. Garlands at weddings also create real impact, high details and you can craft them from wedding flowers or create them yourself. In short, wedding garlands are the perfect wedding decoration for any season so get set to pin as we share our favourite ideas.
