One For The Blooming Weddings



By Richa

As much as we love pom poms and bunting, flowers are still the number one way to decorate your wedding venue – they can instantly change the feel of a room and you can use them to dress everything from your pews to your cake! Take a look at these creative new ideas.

We like to think of it as a floral explosion. Chandeliers, trellises, fountains - you name it, and chances are its being covered by flowers. Adding an undeniable wow factor, the wedding couple everywhere are incorporating new and interesting ways to use blooms into their Big Day. From mandap to the cars, the bed rooms to the halls and the pooja rooms to the veranda, flowers are a mandatory requirement for the wedding ambience. Flower Decoration depends up on your budget. The type and quantity of flowers basically affect your budget, so keep your choices in synchronization with the available budget.

Flowers figure largely in the decorating motif of most Indian weddings. Indian brides use flowers as take-home gifts. A bride may tuck flowers in her hair in lieu of a veil, or wrap a nosegay around her wrist. In a Punjabi wedding, the bride’s brothers hold a sheet of flowers, which the bride walks under to approach her groom. Sindhi brides wear jewelry and adornments made of flowers. The shamianas, or tents for the guests, are also decorated with flowers. Varmalla are traditional Indian flower garlands.

Understand that there is no right or wrong choices when selecting flowers for your wedding. It is your own personal choice, as your own preferences are the most important part, as well as having a basic understanding of what works well for the theme you’ve chosen and your budget. You can also expect a good florist to provide you with helpful advice, so be prepared to ask plenty of questions and to run ideas past your florist once you reach that stage. Some basics to grasp before getting into the details include:
Remember that less is more. Flowers are the splash of colour, the ornamentation on top of many other already beautiful parts of a wedding.

Good positioning and use of inexpensive foliage can create the sense that you have more floral arrangements than you actually do.

Your florist must share your vision, or it’s time to find one who does.

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND WHILE CHOOSING FLOWERS:

  • Choose the quantity of your wedding flowers according to your venue and season. If your wedding is in backyard or a garden then minimum quantity of flowers can be enough for the décor.
  • Take advice from other couples and ask them about their florist. They will surely give you the best advice and will also provide you the information about the cost. Read the magazines and the reviews to have an idea about your wedding flowers.
  • Find the perfect florist for your venue. Some florists only provide you the flowers and some provides the designers as well. If you want much of flower work then have a florist designer who will help you with the flower decors idea.
  • Be specific about your choice. If you’re thinking about the white roses then don’t say ‘’roses’’. Brief your florist about exactly what you want.
  • Do your research before going to a florist. Images are way more expressive then words. Browse the net and look for the flower décor ideas and take your gallery with you before going to the florist.

A few blooms on top can be enough to bring a simple cake to life, or you can decorate each tier for the full effect. Just make sure you discuss your options with your florist!

Suspended Flowers: Mandap decor too has taken a minimalist route with suspended florals taking over the decor. It’s about the flowers you choose and keep them as simple as possible. You can also use paper lanterns or even tin bulbs along with new-age Thai ferns and flowers to create an out-of-the world experience.

Gajra Curtains: Mogra curtains are slowly coming back and South-Indian weddings are teeming with them – they are all about tradition and yet with the addition of modern flowers are becoming more contemporary.

Dramatic décor: When it comes to decorating your reception space, the sky is the limit! We love to see dramatic floral pieces in plainer venues – a marquee, for example, is the perfect blank canvas to decorate with flowers and natural touches. But just make sure to use a lot of greenery to add bulk without your flower budget going through the roof!

Flowers and weddings go together like wine and cheese — you can’t really have one without the other. Or so we always thought. Today we’re seeing a lot more brides forgo the flowers in favour of less expensive candles, reusable banners, and versatile paper lanterns. Here are our favorite floral alternatives that won’t make you miss those stems one bit.

One can use artificial flowers or paper flowers that give bold impressions if used creatively and look stunning. It is an inexpensive solution and will provide the same charm like the real flowers.

You can also opt for ribbons and fabric cuttings for fillers. Even big and beautiful curtains will add the royalty to your wedding. Multi-coloured curtains always look beautiful as the part of your décor especially when the light work is good and bright.

Artistic ornaments, paintings, or some vintage collection can be a unique idea for the wedding décor.
