Wedding Florals 101: Beyond the Bouquet at our Barn Venue
It’s no secret around here at The White Sparrow Barn… we simply adore flowers. From delicate baby buds or robust blooms to luscious greenery or wintry twigs (and everything in between), florals are no stranger to our barn. Creative visionaries and floral designers are constantly dreaming up new ways to let nature’s pretty details shine in our versatile venue space. It’s amazing to see how flowers can transform any space into a distinct and lovely wedding dream. Flowers are bursting with personality, especially in the hands of a talented florist. Go beyond the bouquet; make the most of your wedding day florals by choosing arrangements that represent your style with every stem. Add a pop of color or a delicate detail with flowers in these memorable wedding-day floral arrangements:
- Floral crown: we’ve seen a major revival of the floral crown style in the past year or so… and it doesn’t look like adorning headpieces will be phased out anytime soon. It’s easy to see why this style is here to stay – flowers in a bride’s hair express character and style. Not to mention, don’t we all feel especially lovely with fresh blooms tucked behind our ear? Pack a punch of bright personality with oversized blooms in bright hues, or add a simple bloom to a braided twist on a classic updo. Choose flowers that speak to you and enhance your overall vision for the big day.
- Sweetheart table: a popular choice in recent wedding style, a sweetheart table is a standalone setting reserved for the newly married couple. We love that a sweetheart table provides yet another opportunity to express personal style. Whether your drape the newlyweds’ chairs with extravagant boughs of greenery, or string together wildflower wreaths to adorn their seats, guests will love this personalized touch and the extra something it brings to your wedding decor.
- Escort cards: that’s right, you can even bring floral design into your seating logistics with escort cards and menu design. Label tiny potted succulents with guests’ names, or tie names to a sprig of rosemary at each setting. Better yet, have your calligrapher write out your wedding menu on an unexpected natural detail like an oversized palm frond.
- Getaway vehicle: don’t forget to deck out your getaway car with floral blooms! As the last impression you leave on guests for the night, make your getaway a spectacle to remember. Add a custom-designed wreath to the back of your vintage white car, or have floral yokes made for your horse-drawn carriage. Whatever your getaway style, add to the magic of your final wedding night moments with flowers that capture your personality.
We encourage you to think outside the bouquet when it comes to florals. Floral design extends into every aspect of your special day… from an exquisitely adorned altar, to memorable centerpieces, to fresh buds tucked throughout a cake display, these details are what make your special day an unforgettable event. We are unbiased when it comes to flowers… here at our barn venue, we simply adore every kind of arrangement. Deep moody jewel tones make our hearts flutter just as much as brightly exploding wildflowers or charmingly delicate blush petals. Bring your floral vision and your wedding personality to life under our roof—we would love to see what you have in store for our venue!
