For Wedding Receptions, unless flowers are your wedding theme, then use the flowers to complement your wedding rather than overpower it. Stick to subtle colours that complement what your are wearing and avoid floral arrangements of many colours and many differends kinds of flowers. Check that your flowers will withstand the climate on your wedding day: if your flowers look fresh you will too.
Checlist for your Wedding Reception flowers :
- Reception Entrance- Bridal Table- Guest Tables- Receiving Line Area- Stairways and transitional spaces (such as foyers or any areas guests may wonder such as from pre reception drinks to the dining room)- Guest sign table- Gift table- Wedding cake - Wedding cake table- Restroom/powder room arrangements- Flowers for garnishes on serving trays.
If you are holding a post wedding brunch, hang onto some of the flower arrangements to use at the venue of the post party, it will be a great way to tie the two events together.
If you are planning on taking the wedding ceremony flowers to reuse at the wedding reception, always check the the church or place of worship will allow you to do so.
