You want your wedding colors to be as prominent as possible. After all, even if your colors do not define your theme, they help you create a consistent look for your wedding ceremony and reception. One important way to show off your colors is to introduce them with different floral arrangements. Whether you host a formal or informal affair, you can find many uses for flowers in your decorations. While you can make use of synthetic flowers as well as real flowers to create your arrangements, be mindful about putting synthetic decorations in more visible areas. They can prove easier to work in at decorations on your altar, or in other areas where people are not as likely to be close to them. (more…)
