I’m trying to decide on what types of flowers I’m going to be using. Our venue has beautiful robins egg blue walls and dark wood with a high white ceiling so I’d like to keep the flowers fairly simple, elegant, and light to brighten the room alongside the candles we’ll be using (probably lots of tea lights). I love the lush elegant look of fluffy flowers that still maintain a “natural silhouette” (not a fan of the very round/uniform bouquets of roses or flower ball types) and am hoping to use white/ivory flowers with greenery. Flowers I’m considering using: hydrangea, roses, wisteria, and stock. I plan to DIY the centerpieces but would like to use silk flowers for decor for the 6 window sills and the lobby area of my venue which will have our card table/guest book etc.
ANYWAYS – for the windows I am thinking of decorating with silk wisteria bushes that will hang over the ledges and tea lights, centerpieces would be real hydrangea, a few roses, and stock with tea lights, and for the bar/other surfaces to have some silk rose and greenery garlands. But please tell me, does this sound like too much? I don’t want it to look like a huge mismash of different types of flowers but since they’re mostly all white and fluffy it’s not like they’ll clash? My bouquet will probably be simple with silk roses/greenery I can keep afterwards l and I had envisioned using rose petals to decorate the aisle for the ceremony and to scatter on tables for cocktail hour and dinner.
