When dreaming about flowers for your wedding, the event design team at Andrew’s Garden encourages you to consider incorporating a focal point into your wedding décor that will ‘wow’ your guests. Even a single statement piece with gorgeous florals can elevate the overall ambiance, creating a magical space for you and your guests to celebrate. Wedding décor has numerous elements to consider, so the challenge is always how to allocate your budget. The expense associated with a large, custom floral element will obviously affect the bottom line – but it will also create a big impact. Each piece is as unique as the client, so what is impactful or important for one couple will be very different for another. You may love an extravagant ceiling installation because photos at the ceremony are a priority. Others may wish to take advantage of a beautiful architectural feature like a grand staircase or intricate fireplace they wish to embellish.  Many add custom floral arches which are utilized for the ceremony, then repositioned at the reception. No matter what your primary focus may be, a focal point floral element will certainly ‘make a statement.’

Existing Architectural Features

Some venues are a blank slate while others may have extraordinary features that enticed you in the first place! Embellishing an already alluring and unique architectural element may be the most impactful thing you can do. Grand entrances, dramatic stairways, and historic fireplaces are especially stunning when adorned with spectacular blooms.

Uncommon Elements

A backyard or outdoor wedding can be both personal and elegant, especially when there is a special feature to spotlight. Transform gazebos, docks, pathways, stairs, arbors, fountains — even an enormous 150-year-old Gingko tree! How is that for an unforgettable ceremony backdrop!

Arches and Structural Elements

Versatile and dramatic, an arch, floral wall, or other structural installation can be very flexible by serving as backdrop for the ceremony and then relocated to frame the head table. It is a great option, especially for large spaces like hotel ballrooms.

Hanging Installations

Be sure to look up as well! Incorporating florals and greenery will add texture and intimacy to the space. Suspend a whimsical installation over the head table or dance floor, soften high ceilings of a tent or industrial space, or add a touch of nature to chandeliers to add interest that encompasses the entire space.
So, whether your priority is to welcome your guests with a grand entrance piece or create a backdrop for photos that will last a lifetime, statement pieces with specialty florals will enhance your overall wedding design and make it simply unforgettable.
