A marvelously, fantastically exaggerated wedding: The advanced course

Perfect dramatic blooms – orchids!

So you already know that you have always been a 'dare to be different' kind of girl, and for your upcoming wedding you want to go all out! Brides who want to gravitate toward having a show-stopping wedding are far from 'drama queens.' When planning your extraordinary ceremony and reception, you might want to incorporate a few of these phenomenal extra touches to your big day's designs!

Dramatic and bold ceremony decor
United With Love recently shared the fact that one of the most often overlooked elements of weddings is the ceremony decor. By giving your ceremony a personality all of its own, you can easily add that extra something to your nuptials.

We love the idea of setting up a gazebo or canopy to frame you and your partner as you say "I do!" You could drape white cloth and accent it with bold flower choices in your wedding color palette. For an extra touch, use colored fabrics or work with your florist to create a stunning floral canopy.

There are many other ways to add dramatic hints to your ceremony decor. Consider using a bright colored fabric for your aisle runner such as royal blue or a deep lavender. The simple line of color will really dress up your entrance!

Dramatic floral designs: Orchids
For especially show-stopping florals, we love the idea of using orchids. This bloom is extremely elegant looking and its many different types make it a versatile flower for weddings. The cymbidium, dendrobium and phalaenopsis orchids are all available year round and can be found in shades of white, pink, purple, blue, orange and green.

One of the reasons we love this flower so much is that the exotic looking orchid is truly a show-stopping bloom and perfect for dramatic weddings. The Knot reminds us that boutonnieres have been taking a more prominent spot amid wedding embellishments in recent years. By using an orchid for boutonnieres and wrapping the stems in a ribbon that is the same color as the suits, the bold flowers will really pop against the lapel.

Add even more drama to your wedding day blooms by using a wrap for your bouquet stems or by glamming them up with jewelry or gems. Instead of tying your flowers down with traditional twine, choose a three-dimensional display that allows your blooms to move a bit and flow naturally.

Dramatic personal touches and favors
Beau Coup shared a number of absolutely fabulous ideas that dramatic brides will adore! They suggested the idea of giving each of your guests a embellished costume mask in a Mardi Gras style. We love this idea as a way of incorporating your theatrical tastes and adding a bit more vibrancy to a wild wedding reception.

Another increasingly popular idea that offbeat and extraordinary brides are sure to love is to set up a photo booth at your reception. Skip the traditional guestbook, and have your guests take a moment in the photo booth instead! Your guests will have fun doing it and you will have memories to last you a lifetime.

We love the idea of giving your guests a little dramatic flair of their own by having unique fans for your wedding favors. You can give each guest a silk or sandalwood fan that is personalized with you and your partner's names.
