No doubt about it – flowers are quintessential to a wedding. Whether you’ve got a green thumb or you can’t keep a houseplant alive, the centerpiece and bouquet are not the only way to spread their beauty throughout your big day.

Ceremony
Adorn the pews or seating with sweet bunches of baby’s breath or wild flowers.

Create a romantic aisle with loose petals and candles.

Decor

If you like the idea of flowers, but find the scent to be overwhelming, try incorporating them into art and decoration. This works anywhere from the dessert table to signage.

Favors
Send your guests home with an eco-friendly (and budget friendly!) reminder of your day with a packet of seeds. Easy-to-plant options include poppies and sunflowers. Or make the flower memorable – literally – with forget-me-nots. Include a sweet phrase and your wedding date to add a personal touch.
