Where can I add flowers to my wedding?

Aside from the obvious bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces, there are SO many different places to add a floral pop to your big day! You’re planning your big day and whether you’re looking to add one extra piece or wanting to fill your wedding with flowers, have you thought about all of these spots yet?

Before the Wedding

  • Rehearsal dinner flowers are definitely something to be considered, and these could be reused as decorations for the wedding the next day!
  • Welcome sign flowers or greenery
  • Flowers on the steps of stairs or vines along the railings

Personal Flowers

  • Bouquets
  • Boutonnieres, don’t forget fathers, grandfathers, and officiants if you want them
  • Corsages, often for mothers and grandmothers
  • Flower crowns or hair flowers, whether for the bride, bridesmaids, or flower girls
  • Floral dog collar
  • Flower girl basket


  • Flower sprays attached to the inside of the chairs lining the aisle
  • Arch, altar, or chuppah flowers
  • Wine barrel toppers
  • Large arrangements on the ground at the start of the aisle 
  • Dried lavender or leaves to be thrown after the “I do”

Cocktail Hour

  • Escort card table arrangement
  • Flowers or vines on the seating chart
  • An arrangement or garland on the bar
  • Cocktail table arrangements
  • Arrangements on pedestals near entrance doors
  • Flowers on a banister


  • Floral chandeliers
  • Vines climbing pillars that exist in your venue
  • Centerpieces
  • Sweetheart table décor, often this is where couples reuse flowers from their ceremony
  • Cake table flowers or flowers on the cake
  • More bar-top arrangements if the bar differs from the cocktail hour (or move them over)
  • Guestbook table flowers or greenery
  • Memorial table flowers
  • Bits of flowers or greenery on buffet tables
  • Small arrangements in the bathrooms

Wherever you want to add flowers, be sure to communicate with your florist. We will often suggest something that could be reused from earlier in your wedding or help you plan the best way to highlight a space.

With love,
