Guest Post :: A Few Creative Ways To Use Garlands At Weddings

I know I have mentioned this before, but I absolutely love how fall weddings keep becoming more and more popular. Even though Spring/Summer is still considered the official wedding season, gone are the days where were boxed into only a certain season.

Today Anand has written a simply fabulous guest post about fun and creative ways to use garlands at weddings. Even though garlands are another thing that have started to break out of their ‘seasonal window’ I still love seeing them at fall and winter weddings; it just adds to the festivities of things and plays on the Christmas feeling that starts floating around in the air around the middle of October.
Garlands were once considered apt only for the holiday décor but with time they have found their rightful place in the wedding décor and flower arrangements as well. Driven by the latest wedding décor and DIY trends, people have started to use them for the wedding décor details in all sorts of unique and innovative ways. The biggest advantage of using wreaths in the weddings is that not only they provide amazing versatility to work around but they are super-affordable too while doing so. They perfectly prove that wedding décor is not only about whole sale wedding flowers but there are other floral that could do the trick as well.

They could easily provide a romantic touch to your wedding bouquets, show off lushness when strung across ceremony arches, be the grandiose element for your chandeliers, or even exude elegance and grace when draped across the back of wedding chairs or drapes. Right from the rustic and light-green eucalyptus leaves to deep-brown hues of magnolia; wedding garlands segment is always full of opportunities and possibilities that you might have never even heard of and that too without ever stretching your wedding budget.

There is always an option of using some beautiful wedding accents in matching colors (in terms of the overall wedding color palette) to top the cake and make a cohesive look for the overall wedding décor and flower arrangements.  

Use them on the back of your curtains:
There are always some spaces that we fail to utilize well in terms of wedding décor and aesthetics and the curtains fall into the same category. The drapes are always known for bringing the drama element to the stage and you could perfectly use this to your advantage by tying breathtaking eucalyptus wedding garlands or even any other variety to make a perfect statement for the wedding ceremony décor.

What better way to make a grand exit from the ceremony and the wedding venue than by using a car adorned with beautiful garlands. The bumper of your getaway car could easily serve the purpose here and make a perfect statement for the ceremony.
