Fresh ideas for the wedding florals
A flower can turn a drab room lively, or lush, or playful. It brings the outside to indoor spaces, which can be a popular choice for sit-down dinners or evening cocktail soirées. Joie de Vivre shares some colorful ideas from weddings held at its hotels.
Playful in paradise
A raised metal vase stands adorned with hanging crystals. At the summit are punchy yellow lilies and white hydrangeas, with the unusually vibrant touch of lemons in a glass vase (the fruit also helps flowers stay fresh). The placard welcomes people to the wedding luau.
The glamour of black and white
A white carnation ball on a glossy black pomander gave the couple the glamorous black-and-white color palette they wanted.
A touch of the wild
The wooden mini planters are artfully arranged using a mix of wildflowers. The tiny blooms and intriguing foliage showcase the beauty of the outdoors for a rustic-chic wedding.
The modern vintage
It doesn’t get more romantic than blush-hued roses on vintage silver trays. The bud “vases”—à la tree stumps—lend a garden ambiance to a couple who subbed a birdcage for a wedding-card holder.
The humble baby’s breath becomes a showstopper when paired with an elegant, candelabra-style vase, dripping with baby baby breaths, double the fun.
Warming up the room
Red roses and deep pink orchids pair beautifully with gold, bringing warmth and elegance to brick walls. Love-lies-bleeding, aka hanging amaranth, is a sultry addition.
Driftwood studded with white peonies, carnations, and roses, then offset with silver and green foliage, is the territory of the modern romantic.
