Whether you’re looking for unmissable arrangements, stunning bouquets or luxurious floral installations, this feature is full of advice and inspiration. These are wedding flowers to fall in love with.
Luxe wedding flowers for your ceremony
When you start to plan, think about your budget. It’s better to use your budget on one big statement arrangement that your guests won’t be able to miss than spend the same amount on lots of little arrangements that can easily get ‘lost’, particularly in a big venue. Remember that all eyes will be on you so think about investing in a gorgeous backdrop because that will be seen by all your guests and it will appear in your photographs too. If this arrangement can be portable, even better as you can move it to your reception space once your ceremony is over. Here are some of our favourite ideas for fantastic wedding flowers:
These floral ‘meadows’ lining the aisle really bring the garden into the ceremony. If these are made on individual blocks of foam, they can be moved to your reception.

Dramatic wedding flowers for your reception
If your venue is blessed with lots of fab features, highlight them with your flowers. Fireplaces, doorways, staircases and windows can all be dressed to perfection. Similarly, don’t forget your tables – guests will be spending a long time sat here so give them dramatic florals too. Just remember to make sure that flowers on your tables don’t get in the way of conversation – keep them low or above head height. Take a look at these OTT wedding flowers:
A suspended arrangement of pampas grass, flowers and sculptural branches will make sure all eyes are on the top table.

These metallic flower stands contrast so well with the flowing flowers on top. High arrangements like this break up the space in a room with a high ceiling and they also keep table tops clear too.
