Put your heart in the right place…

April 14, 2011

Wreaths of all shapes are becoming a huge wedding trend and are great for creating a focal point during the ceremony, behind your top table or on the door of your venue. These pretty heart-shaped creations were made by Lily & May in Essex – a fab florist I recently discovered on Twitter. Their work is amazing and I’m hoping to feature more of their designs in future posts.

According to Lily & May’s creative director Claire, wreaths are becoming a popular way for brides to make a floral statement on their big day: “More and more couples are asking me to create wedding wreaths and they’ve become something of an obsession of mine over the last couple of years. Not only do they make a stunning focal point in any venue, they are also extremely versatile and can be used in a number of places, such as hung from the church door or behind the bride and groom at the top table. I would also suggest presenting them as a gift to a special guest at the end of the evening, as they are too lovely to chuck out once the day is over! Any flowers suitable for floral foam can be used when making a wreath, but your florist will advise on the types of flowers that work best. A simple wreath will cost about £50 depending on the size of the arrangement and the flowers used.”

Circular wreaths can work just as well as a focal point too. I had one placed behind the ceremony table at my wedding and it was a lovely finishing touch. My florist Sabine at G Lily kept it simple with fresh green hydrangeas decorated with ivory ribbon. I loved it so much that I took it home and hung it on the wall for six months!
