The theme and style of your wedding can be largely conveyed by the flowers and foliage that you choose. Modern, formal weddings often favour elegant lilies and large leaf foliage. Colour and design are minimalistic yet elegant. For romantic or country style weddings choose pastels, heritage blooms and small leaf foliage. A must in our Wedding Styling Tips is that the choice of floral arrangements for the reception should mirror the style of bouquets and corsages carried by the bridal party.



Consider your table seating not just from a design perspective but also from the view of your guests. Tables and seating should be social and arranged in a way that suits the style of meal served, whether that’s our sit down menu, cocktail reception or our latest grazing menu. Centrepieces and décor should be chosen with the overall theme in mind although remain practical. Fish bowls on each table might look fabulous but how will live fish be managed at the end of the night?



This is a fun way to express your wedding theme. Country, rustic style weddings will use natural materials such as timber or chalkboards to mark a guest’s place at the table. Formal receptions might display place names in beautiful, custom calligraphy. If you have an inclination for fun come up with some nicknames or simple riddles that guests must solve to work out which card belongs to them.



While this aspect of a wedding can be a big task it’s an area where you can delegate to friends or family. Bonbonnieres are the way to give a personal, heart-felt memento to your guests and so a little bit of thought is well worth the effort. Some favourites for a provincial style wedding are small jars of home-made preserves, local honey or other regional delights. Potted succulents, small scale craft activities or a playlist CD can be adapted to the theme of your day. Jump on Pinterest for endless inspiration ideas!
