There can be so much more to wedding flowers than the bridal bouquet!

It is, of course, entirely up to you how, when and even if you use flowers during your special day – it is your day, after all. But there’s no doubt that for many people organising Gibraltar weddings with our help, the opportunity to get creative with all manner of floral detailing for the most important day of their lives is an especially exciting one.

We’ve previously written on the Sweet Gibraltar Weddings blog about how you can select the perfect bridal bouquet for when you tie the knot in the British Overseas Territory. But what about all of those other ways you could indulge your love of all things floral on your big day?

Longstanding traditions provide a useful cue

While you don’t by any means have to have a bridal bouquet, with some brides eschewing it altogether, others go in the other direction. That means they don’t merely take a great amount of time choosing a bouquet that they feel represents their personal style, but also arrange for similar blooms for all of the bridesmaids, often made to visually complement the bridal bouquet.

Then, there are all of those other ways in which something floral here and there can definitely add positively to the all-round ‘vibe’ of Gibraltar weddings. What about, for instance, boutonnieres (buttonholes) for every man (or woman) who will be in a suit at your wedding, pinned to a lapel or tucked into the jacket pocket, together with a coloured handkerchief?

As for the mothers of the bride and groom, you might like the idea of reserving corsages or floral cuffs for them to signal their special status, these being wrist bands decorated with blooms.

Flowers can also naturally be a key part of your wider wedding decor. There are pretty much infinite possibilities for how to use floral arrangements for aisle decor, encompassing the likes of chair back blooms, full floral moon gates and even hanging floral installations.

You might even opt to use the likes of hanging flowers, table centrepieces and garlands as decor at your wedding breakfast, perhaps repurposing flowers from the ceremony. Again, it’s only really your imagination that restricts how you use them to add to what will already undoubtedly be a very special atmosphere.
