We can’t say enough here at Griffin’s Floral Design about the wreath trend, except to say that we saw it coming. Green garlands have been dressing reception tables for several years now, the garden-inspired wedding trend is here to stay, and those-in-the-know predict forest-inspired ceremonies are up next. Why wouldn’t wreaths be bigger than ever, given all of the foraged foliage, moss, greenery and natural elements we’re seeing pop up in everything from bouquets to table toppers? Read on to see how you can incorporate your door’s favorite accessory into your wedding.
As Wall Decor
Want to give a bare wall festive appeal? Adorn it with a wreath that brings in your wedding flowers and greens. This is a great way to make even a barren area feel inviting.
As a Ceremony Backdrop Outdoors
Huge wreaths or hoops are a modern riff on the traditional arch. Their shape is super symbolic, and they make an arresting focal point outdoors. Build in hardy roses in your color scheme and let the rest of the wreath drip with foliage and greens, giving a rich, layered look.
As a Ceremony Backdrop Indoors
Bring the outdoors in via a gorgeous wreath. If you’re getting married in a space without a natural altar or ceremony spot, create one with a giant wreath. Keep it wide, open and lush, positioned just above where you’re exchanging your vows.
As a Tepee Topper
Casual ceremonies taking place on the beach, in the backyard or in other natural spots are a great opportunity to be creative, inventive and fun. Whether you’ve built a boho tepee or a breezy arch, hang a wreath or two at the top for a fresh, simple vibe.
As Chair Decor
Along with topping the tables themselves (or perhaps in place of), dress the backs of your reception chairs with laurel wreaths. Use ribbon to tie in wedding colors, or keep it entirely green for a dose of earthy style.
