Flowers in the Wedding Venue


Imagine your wedding day and the aesthetic you want to create. Your theme and color palette will influence it all. Flowers are arguably one of the most important elements of design, and one of the most expensive. The latter is especially true when live flowers are used. All-inclusive wedding venues that include the florals and the designs can create the dreamy space you imagine. We are giving you a few ideas to add to your picture board and tips for the flowers in your wedding venue.

Budgeting for Flowers


Flowers will absorb about 8% and 10% of the wedding budget. Live flowers for the average wedding are estimated to cost between $2,000 to $5,000. How much you spend will depend on the types of blooms you choose and the amount of flowers you require to design your wedding venue. All-inclusive wedding venues that include quality artificial floral designs can save thousands in the budget. Premium silk flowers imitate the look of fresh flowers and can be used to design bouquets, boutonnieres, and the wedding venue. If you are not willing to sacrifice fresh flowers, you will need to get creative with your choice of blooms.

Create an Impressive Wedding Venue


Create an impressive wedding venue with oversized floral arrangements throughout the reception area. Consider the size of the space and the size of the floral arrangements. You can design an illusion of a canopy of flowers on high candelabras indoors. Fill the space. Design with suspended arrangements from the ceiling or from tree branches. Placement of your wedding flowers is important. You should avoid blocking faces. Place the widest part of your arrangements over the tallest person’s head and below the shortest person’s head. Evaluate the size of the wedding venue and think about how you want to use your flowers.

What to Look for in the Wedding Venue


Your wedding venue will have the greatest affect over design and aesthetic. If you want to create the boho wedding or a rustic theme, choose a venue that fits the style. Look for a space that is overflowing with nature. Important features are walls with vines and flowers, overhead canopies of greenery, flowers on the ceiling and around chandeliers and other fixtures. A venue with an outdoor and indoor ceremony space provides more options. The venue does not need to be a barn or cabin. The theme can be created in an elegant venue with the rustic and earthy tone you want.
