Wedding Bouquets for your attendants are usually similar to your bouquet
in size and shape, but colors and flowers may differ. Their
flowers should complement their style of dresses. The maid or
matron of honor's bouquet may be a different color or larger
size than the rest of your attendants. The flower girl may wear
a wreath and carry a nosegay or small basket of flowers.
Mothers may choose to wear a corsage or not. Grandmothers
should also be presented a corsage. The wedding party, fathers
and ushers traditionally wear boutonnieres. The ring bearer may
or may not wear a boutonniere, depending on his outfit.
The church may be decorated with flowers and plants, depending
on the mood you want to create, any church rules and your budget.
Flowers are used to purposefully draw all eyes to the front of the church
and the bridal couple. You may
choose to drape ribbons and flowers down the aisles to mark pews and add color.
Use table centerpieces on both sides of the altar or place centerpieces down the aisle.
Jewish ceremony vows are spoken under a chuppah that is placed at the altar and
decorated with greenery and fresh flowers. Flower laden arches are popular for outdoor
Flowers at the reception should complement table linens and the size of the tables. If a buffet
table is used you may want to place an arrangement there. You may also rent indoor plants
or small trees from your florist as well as canopies, twinkle lights and an aisle runner.
An equally beautiful alternative to fresh flowers is silk flower arrangements. Silk flowers are
guaranteed to last and can be enjoyed long after your special day. You may opt for silk
flowers alone or in combination with fresh flowers. Whether you choose silk, fresh or a
combination of both, your wedding flowers will play an important role in your special day.
