Our wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime event that most of us spend our lives dreaming about. When COVID-19 first hit, it brought about a tumultuous time for everyone, especially the bride and groom-to-be. However, you don’t have to wait until the end of the tunnel to see the light. Amid difficult times, there are many ways for you to make the best out of it – even on your special day!
Since the start of Phase 2 on 19 June, weddings were allowed to resume, but with specific safe distancing measures put in place. For example, you can only have up to 20 people if you decide to hold your wedding at a venue outside of your home and ROM or ROMM.
Even with a reduced number of guests, you can still turn up the fun to a maximum with flowers! To spruce up your wedding decoration and setting, here are a few ideas for you to incorporate flowers on your wedding day.
1. Floral Backdrop
You can have a floor-to-ceiling arrangement consisting of some colour-coordinated fresh blooms in the background. This will make for some outstandingly amazing wedding ceremony photos to look back on in future.
There are many variations of floral backdrops to choose from! You can have the backdrop covered entirely in flowers, or just have the blooms rest at the top quarter. For a more rustic look, you can also tape up small stems of flowers vertically.
2. Flower Bouquet
For the bride, holding onto a wedding bouquet is an extension of your beautiful gown. It can also act as a subtle way for you to convey your emotions to your lover, without the need for words. So, you can choose flowers based on a set of criteria, such as their meanings and colour scheme. With that being said, be sure to schedule your flower bouquet delivery to arrive at the correct date and time!
3. Floral Crowns
There’s no such thing as too many flowers! Have you ever dreamt of walking down the aisle, with flowers intertwined in your hair? If yes, then now’s the perfect time to do so. Like your bouquet, your crown can complement your outfit.
Let it blend in seamlessly with the overall theme of the wedding, such as the colour scheme. From lavish, statement crowns to minimalistic, simple crowns – the choice is yours to make.
On the other hand, you can even opt for modern versions that come with crystal adornments and flowers. This makes for a more glamorous and sleek option, but still in line with a floral wreath.
4. Table Centrepieces
Aside from the bride and groom, table centrepieces are often the focal point of each wedding dinner. It has to be of the right size so that guests can see and talk to each other without the centrepiece obstructing their view. To add to the romantic ambience, place scented candles along with these flowers.
Or, if you don’t plan to have a sit-down wedding dinner, the table centrepieces can still be used! For example, on the table, for guests to come and take away their individually-packed food.
