Wedding Planning: Maintaining Mood, Tone, and Theme
When planning a wedding, the mood and the tone should be consistent. All the elements of your wedding including the color palette for the flowers, bridesmaids dresses, the reception decor, and the music should be coordinated to enhance the atmosphere of the wedding.
Flowers For The Ceremony
The flowers should always meet the mood of the event. Once you choose the theme and venue, you can plan the floral decor. The flowers for the church may include floral arrangements for the entrance, decorations for the pews, and altar flowers. Bouquets for the bride and attendants, boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen, and corsages for family members should all feature coordinating colors.
Set the Mood With Seasonal Arrangements
The floral arrangements are stunning when seasonal flowers and colors are combined. For spring weddings, Hydrangeas, Tulips, Hyacinths, and Orchids in shades of pink, blue, and purple, make beautiful bouquets and altar arrangements. Roses, Lily of the Valley, and Baby's Breath are traditional for summer weddings.
Autumn weddings may feature warm, rich golds, russets, reds, and purples. Winter weddings sparkle with Orchids, Sweetheart Roses, and seasonal greenery. Whatever flowers are used for the ceremony, the theme and colors should be followed through for the reception decor.
Setting The Mood With Playlists
Your wedding day is a celebration and you want your guests to have a memorable time. The mood you want to create should include playlists for the reception. Your DJ is a professional and can make suggestions. If you have favorite songs that aren't suitable for dancing, have them played during the dinner or cocktail hour.
Your Theme And The Wedding Venue
Many wedding venues feature beautiful spaces for the ceremony and reception. The venue you choose will set the tone for the day. Here are some trending wedding venues to help you to select the flowers, colors, and theme for the event. Historic estates and mansions feature vintage-style architecture and set the tone for elegant weddings.
Whether your theme is formal or rustic, a winery is the perfect setting for an outdoor wedding. Vineyards spreading out for hundreds of acres, rose gardens, and spectacular scenery is a charming venue for daytime or evening weddings, and many can host events for as many as 200 or more guests.
Many couples are hosting traditional ceremonies in a church that features a backdrop of stained glass and vaulted ceilings. Venues like hotel ballrooms and banquet halls that can be adapted to complement the theme of any wedding are more popular than in previous years with couples who want big, family weddings. Hotel rooftops are the ideal setting for weddings in which the theme is casual.
Whatever the theme remember that flowers should always meet the mood of the event and coordinate all the elements of your wedding so that it flows smoothly and consistently.
