Never underestimate the beauty and charm of carefully chosen flowers. Even a single rose added to a place setting can guarantee a bit of magic and romance.

Here are some tips for adding nature’s touch to your special day:

  • Make your bouquet the “something blue” with a nosegay of sweet forget-me-nots.
  • Explore  locally grown flowers by visiting nearby gardens and nurseries.
  • Don’t overlook herbs as beautiful partners with your favorite cut flowers.
  • Have your attendants carry wreaths of flowers instead of traditional bouquets.
  • Savor the simplicity of a garland of greenery tied with colorful ribbon.
  • Consider more than just cut flowers for centerpieces, using lovely potted plants instead.
  • Planning a church ceremony in December? The church may be decorated for the holidays already, so simply add a few candles.
  • Create distinctive bouquets for attendants that reflect the flower symbolic of their birth month.
  • Make a large area a cozy setting by bordering it with large ferns or even a decorative screen.
  • Have fresh flowers delivered after the wedding to both of your parents’ homes.
  • Pansies are a symbolic way to say “thinking of you”.
  • Not marrying in a house of worship? Create an alter with fresh flowers atop white linen or damask cloth, or wrap a railing with greenery and ribbon.
  • Don’t forget t let your florist know of any specific flowers you don’t like.
  • Instead of the traditional mother’s corsage, consider a small floral bouquet held in a Victorian tussy mussy.
