Garden-Style Wedding Flowers with a Sunset Color Theme
Written By07 Jul 2021
When it was time to finally create flowers for my own wedding, I had a few key elements I really couldn't go without. For so long, I was dreaming up garden-style, sunset-colored arrangements, with touches of vintage in some of the decorations to help add a contrasting color and texture to the overall look.
I included vintage elements in my decor like gold vases, gold picture frames, a vintage dessert buffet, a sweetheart table, etc. And I guess I have always been drawn to a sunset color palette, because my brother pointed out that I did a similar color scheme when I made centerpieces for my high school graduation party.
This garden-style, sunset-colored theme all started with the coral charm peonies because they are my absolute favorite. I actually chose our wedding date around the flowers in season because I knew I had to have locally-grown peonies and ranunculus. I added stock because I absolutely love the fragrance. The toffee roses were another must-have for me because they are so unique and really help break up the color scheme. I added in carnations because they were the perfect peach color, and they always get a bad rep. I guess I always root for the underdog! ;)
I did a flower hoop for a flower girl years back and LOVED it so much, so I knew I had to incorporate them into our wedding somehow. I created two of them for the flower girls to walk down the aisle with.
The Boston ferns with the pampas grass was such an easy way to decorate the aisle and elevate the space since I had such limited time. This was also a great decision because my stepmom was able to keep them for her garden afterward.
For the table centerpieces, I had 10 tall arrangements that were absolutely beautiful. If this is in the budget, I believe it's something everyone should consider for their wedding. It adds so much dimension to a room and definitely makes the flowers even more noticeable!
I also added rosemary sprigs to every napkin and the whole room smelled so amazing!
If I could do it all over again, the only thing I would change is finishing ceremony backdrop flowers before 11 p.m. the night before the wedding! Haha. Other than that, I'm so happy with the way the flowers and the entire wedding turned out!
