6 Modern Wedding Flowers Ideas

Posted by Flower Station on 25th May 2022

Even though weddings these days are taking on all different shapes and forms, fresh flowers will still be a major part of many celebrations in our lives.

Flowers are the perfect way to breathe life, colour, and energy into your wedding day, especially if you've been waiting a long time for the moment to arrive.

This means, of course, that you’ll want to take special care when selecting the expert that will create the floral moments for your big day. We recommend to always go for a professional florist or a floral designer who shares your vision regarding the floral décor, and the style you have in mind.

You’ve probably seen a fair amount of wedding bouquets, boutonnières, and centerpieces. However, innovation is what sets weddings apart, so here are 6 modern floral arrangements that will make your wedding a unique one.

Floral Buckets

With a rise in popularity of modern ideas for floral décor, go for a different approach that would amaze the guests.

Metallic buckets filled with flowers like peonies, roses, and lilacs, would give off the vibe of a medieval, European-styled wedding, leaving the imagination of the guests to visualize royalty. Matching the dress of the bride with this theme would leave a long-lasting impression on the guests, and they would be itching to replicate this form of floral décor in events of their own.

Sunflower Arch

The extremely trendy freesias, lilies, and gardenias are commonly used for floral arches, so it is up to you to be the change that gives guests a pleasant surprise. If the wedding date is set during the time between July and October, sunflowers can be used to design floral arches that would uplift the mood of the guests. Their bright yellow blooms, swaying with the movement of the sun, will make up for an incredible sight.

Floral Chandelier

Light chandeliers are a majestic sight to behold, so how about we use that concept and incorporate it into floral décor?

Guests will be in awe when they marvel at the grandeur of the floral arrangement hanging from the ceiling, with colorful blooms and a fragrant scent. An innovative idea for wedding décor, floral chandeliers will make up for an eye-catching visual, and won’t go unnoticed.

Hanging Carnations

There is always elegance in simplicity. For this form of minimalist decoration, all you need is a thread, fresh flowers, and a ceiling where the threads can be hung. The to-and-fro motion of these swaying floral threads will bring the wedding to life and provide guests with a joyful experience. The cost-effective nature of this idea will add to the convenience of the couple being wed.

Floating Florals

If the venue of the wedding has a pool or is beside a pond, why not get creative with it? Floral monograms in different arrangements, floating on the water will look luxurious but will be very cost effective.

You’re definitely not using that pool for swimming while a wedding is going on, so might as well use it to your advantage by adding a touch of floral décor on its surface and enhancing the beauty of the venue.

Garland Draped Ceiling

If the wedding has an outdoor tent, then it is imperative to make that tent look fashionable. A bare ceiling, stifled with support beams will not make up for an aesthetically pleasing sight and will give off the impression that there wasn’t too much thought process that went into the planning stage of the wedding.

Wedding flowers can be used to cover the beams and the ceilings in a manner that makes the tent look extravagant. Using lush green plants like ivy, fern and maidenhair would do the trick and give the ceiling a fully-garland look, making it a sight to behold.
