The day has arrived, you’re standing a few feet away from the church’s entrance and you take a quick glance at your surroundings, find your family, smile nervously and maybe stop and ponder how beautiful everything looks, fits and there’s no sign of something out of place.
How did you do it? First, you picked the right person to marry, and on a more superficial note, you also picked great wedding arrangements you could remember for the rest of your life.
But in case your mind is blank and doesn’t have a single idea on how to choose a fancy, simple, and maybe colorful wedding arrangement, here we give you a list of tips to think about before choosing your special church decoration. Are you ready?
Keep it simple
You may want to use every single floral wedding arrangement that you stumble upon, but to that, we say NO, don’t do it; be strong and only choose whatever makes you feel at home. Less is more, always. Remember to keep it simple and going for solid options, go for whole arrangements that can project what you’re looking for.
Don’t overload the place
You’ve already picked simple and beautiful arrangements. Now, don’t overload the church or ceremony venue by putting too many of them in a row, or by filling every gap you find with too many other ornaments. Remember you still need space to be able to walk and get to the aisle, as well as for your guest to sit in and feel comfortable.
Of course, you can pick any color you want, no matter how out of place it might seem, but pastel colors, such as dusty blue, pale pink, or even yellow, fit very well in temples, churches, or other venues because it turns the possible gloomy vibe of the place into something more open and enjoyable.
But if you really don’t know what color to choose, white is always the safest option, for it can be combined with any other color and look stunning; if not, then maybe you can just leave it like that and feel the peace it brings you to see a one-color wedding arrangement.
Sometimes you just need a tiny detail to make everything look like a dream. Not all about dazzling your guests involves a huge wedding arrangement, but it’s the little things that can magically enhance your surroundings! Petals on the floor are something very typical in weddings and a great option to adorn your special day, as they guide you to the aisle and celebrate your steps.
Focus on the petals. We recommend you to give this traditional decoration a twist—a petal-twist—instead of buying several floral wedding arrangements. Go crazy with petal colors and mix them until you are satisfied!
Tiny Metal Buckets
Seats in the church can be easily decorated, and choosing tiny metal buckets to do it, especially if it’s an outdoor wedding, can turn into something classy and beautiful. Paint them, put on some flowers in them, and hang them to the sides of the church seat. It never fails.
Jars look great too!
The idea of having lit candles on the floor so they can mark the straight way to the aisle can sound mesmerizing, but if you think about it twice, you’ll find that maybe it can bring nothing but tragedy. Children can cause an accident —or grown-ups—and your dress can start to burn, among other dangers you might want to avoid.
Of course, there are safe ways to place candles without having that level of riskiness, but, do you really want the slightest risk?
We only recommend you to think about it twice, if at the end is what you want, then go for it, but take all the precautions needed.
Go big or go home
We’ve been telling you to go simple: “less is more,” right? But now we’re also telling you that it doesn’t necessarily mean you should never go big. It’s all about knowing your limits and seeing for yourself what you’re up to and what you truly want for your special day!
Bring horses to the church, use glitter! Do whatever! But GO BIG if you really want to. Just don’t anything halfway.
You can even put some white trees or any other type of installations with extravagant colors.
