Choosing Flowers for Your Wedding Venue

You’ve chosen the perfect venue for your wedding, but even the best venue can benefit from some added decor. One of the best ways to decorate your Wisconsin wedding venue is with flowers.

Venue flowers will include your centerpieces, top table decoration, and cake table decoration. You can also look to add them in other places around your venue, such as near the dance floor, on any other special tables, on the bar, in the bathrooms, and around the entrance.

Your wedding venue flowers can match your bridal bouquet, or you can choose completely different flowers. Some flowers, like hydrangeas, give a great full look, while flowers like roses can give a delicate fragrance to your venue.

Centerpieces and other floral arrangements around your venue can also be a great place to incorporate foliage. The deep greens can give a richness to your arrangements and are also a way of working with a variety of wedding themes.

If you have your venue, but don’t have your flowers, or if you want to know more about how to use flowers at your Wisconsin wedding, get in touch today!

Wedding Flowers: You Don’t Need to Be a Flower Expert!

If you don’t know your primroses from your peonies, or baby’s breath from begonias, choosing your wedding flowers might seem like an impossible task. You might feel intimidated by the idea of putting together bouquets, but don’t be! You don’t need to be a flower expert to have beautiful wedding flowers.

To take all of the pressure off of you, you can ask an experienced florist to create everything on your behalf. All you really need is your wedding colors, and any particular theme that will need to be matched.

You can have some input, too. When you meet with your florist, have a look around and tell them which types of flowers you do or don’t like the look of. When you choose a few favorites, your florist can build the rest of your bouquet around these.

Whatever you do, though, be sure you’re working with a great florist with experience creating floral arrangements for Wisconsin weddings. When you come to Belaire Flowers, we can help you whether you’re an avid gardener or floral novice. Get in touch or come by our West Allis flower shop to find out more about creating the perfect flowers for your wedding day.

Choosing Centerpieces For Your Wedding

When it comes to your wedding day, centerpieces are one of the most important ways to display gorgeous flowers. Along with the bridal bouquet, they’re the floral arrangements that your guests will most look forward to seeing, and that will most define the style of your wedding.

Of course, there are many different styles of centerpieces. Depending on your wedding’s style or theme, you might want to opt for something big or small, bright or subdued.

There are also multiple ways of displaying floral centerpieces. The most common way, of course, is a traditional vase. You can add extra interest to your centerpieces with a colored glass vase, which will nicely set off the flowers you have chosen.

A tall vase can be a dramatic choice, and can allow your guests to easily see each other across the table. You can also opt for a bowl style presentation, where the flowers are kept lower. This can be a great choice if you want to include foliage.

How to Use White Wedding Flowers

With so many colorful blooms available, there’s something particularly powerful about choosing all white flowers for your wedding day. It gives a beautiful look to your bouquet and venue to plenty of pure white flowers, and is unmistakably bridal.

White flowers are perfect with a white dress, but can also nicely set off any ivory, off-white, or colored wedding gown. When we saw the photos from last week’s wedding of Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, we were struck by the gorgeous choice of white gown and white flowers his new wife, activist Lauren Parsekian had made.

When you choose to go with any single color for your flowers, the quality of blooms is very important. You’ll want flowers that hold the color perfectly, and that look great in their own right. A single color bouquet can be all one type of flower, or it can be a mix of several types.

If you do opt for several flowers, an expert florist will be able to direct you towards blooms that work well together and that have the same tone of your chosen color. (An all-white bouquet can be completely thrown off by a single cream-toned flower in the middle!)

Succulents Make Stunning Wedding Flowers

Looking for something a bit different than the usual roses and baby’s breath? Why not consider succulents for your wedding flowers?

Succulents are a great addition to wedding bouquets and centerpieces. They can also make great favors for your guests to take home and enjoy for years to come. They are also one of the most eco-friendly choices for your wedding flowers, as they can be replanted after your wedding.

You can also work succulents into bouquets with other flowers. The rich leafy look of the succulents is beautiful alongside the deep reds, purples, or whites of more traditional wedding blooms.

Succulents can make great wedding flowers because they also come in so many different varieties. They range from a wide variety of greens to whites, purples, and pinks. They are also available year round, which means you don’t have to worry about seasonal availability like you do with so many types of flowers.
