One-of-a-kind floral touches that go beyond the bouquet

One-of-a-kind ideas for adding flowers to your wedding

Bouquets and centerpieces are expected on your wedding day, and we recently shared even more ways to deck your ceremony and reception decor in flowers! Well ladies, we’ve rounded up a few more absolutely unique ideas for adding flowers to your big day – from simple accents to wild and unexpected blooms!

Simple napkin and flower pairings

Martha Stewart Weddings sums it up perfectly, saying, “Weddings are full of flowers, but sometimes the littlest arrangements make the biggest impact.” Martha Stewart suggests adding in small floral arrangements to each place setting by tucking cut flowers into each napkin. You can use a classic white napkin fold and tuck in a few vibrant blooms to make this detail stand out even more. Your florist will be able to provide little vials of water that attach to the end of stems which will keep you delightful blooms from wilting during your cocktail hour.

You can also select a bloom that has longevity outside of water such as the narcissus, carnations, calla lilies or orchids and attach a single bloom to a piece of wire to make it into a napkin ring. You won’t need to have any fancy napkin-folding techniques under your belt for this delightful floral detail!

Flowers for your drinks

For your cocktail hour, you can go a little flower crazy in the most unexpected ways. Brides.com suggested a couple of creative ideas to add a little flower flourish to your sparkly setting, including flower ice cubes and floral drink stirrers!

To get floral ice cubes for yourself, Brides.com tells us to take a few simple ice cube trays and freezing edible flowers such as mini violas in the water. These frozen gems will be a vibrant surprise in your guests’ cocktail glasses. If the idea of transporting frozen flower ice cubes seems like a daunting task, you could take this idea and make it even more simple by floating the flower on the top of your cocktails.

Another fabulous idea for a flower-themed cocktail hour is to fashion bloom-topped cocktail stirrers! You can use any bloom and stirrer for this idea, but Brides.com hot-glued geraniums, Sweet William and begonias in red and orange hues to the top of a crimson colored chopsticks. This is an easy way to add a signature style to your wedding with just one small detail.

Canines and fingers

Many brides and grooms have a certain four-legged family member that they would like to include on their big day, and it is becoming increasingly commonplace to see our canine buddies taking a role in the ceremony! Work with your florist to craft a garland necklace from blooms in your chosen wedding color palette and dress your pooch up for the occasion! Your guests may be surprised to see your pup in the wedding party, but they will be delighted to see him or her in an adorable floral necklace!

Many brides often decide to wear flowers for their big day by fastening a flower in their hair or donning a stunning wrist corsage. Another way to go above and beyond for your floral wear is to pop on a flower ring. You can turn any ring into a stunning floral detail; all you need is a little bit of silver wire and a durable, petite bloom like the delphinium. The end creation will be like flower bling, and is another small detail that can really provide that big impact you may be looking for!
