Vintage style is expressed primarily through features found within the design. Accents of delicate lace,

carefully curated family heirlooms, sepia toned photos and even larger scale relics, when displayed

Romance is never far from the heart of any couple ready to tie the knot. Against a perfectly forest green backdrop – various shades of pink, crisp white and metallic gold add warmth and color to an already divine setting while creating a romantic feel without seeming over elaborate.

champagne bar surrounded by airy, white blooms lends the feeling of sophistication to the outdoor

space without taking away from the beauty already provided by nature. It’s here your guests will gather,

Wedding trends may come and go but a wedding with classic décor will always be in style. From

perfectly placed pendant lighting, to draping fabrics adorned with lush greenery and bold pops of

colorful flowers, everything about a classic head table is chic and refined. To design an even more

inviting space against any towering backdrop, suspended florals and greenery can offer a more intimate

feel without taking away from the space of the room itself. A pièce de résistance such as this one will

The bold and playful design of a tropical wedding is centered around colorful detail. Layers of bright

oranges, reds and pinks are show stopping choices that pair perfectly with airy linen, abundant florals

and even eye-catching food! Style bamboo chairs with both fabric and flowers to give them extra life.

Add draping greenery to lend a hint of tropical palm as the perfect cool contrast to the warmth of the

Minimalist design, when executed properly, is never understated! The key to perfecting minimalist wedding style is in carefully contemplated accent pieces, according to BBJ Linen. Include two or three small-scale versions of any chosen floral centerpiece on your tables. This small detail will add a polished and cohesive look to your tablescape without taking away from the modern minimalist approach to your marriage celebration.

Winter isn’t just about the hustle and bustle of the holidays, in fact, it’s an entire extraordinary season and an idyllic one for any glamorous white wedding. The seasonal chill and dark providethe perfect backdrop for dazzling décor. Monochromatic is predicted to be a huge floral trend in 2020, so don't hold back!

Dramatic doesn’t need to take a backseat when it comes to wedding décor. Scalloped edge glittering chargers surrounded by accents of etched crystal glassware and various styles of shimmering candles capture a dramatic feel without seeming dark.

Paired with a dark runner and thought provoking accent pieces, rose petals add texture and vibrance to pull together this dramatic look.

Gorgeous centerpieces aren’t the only way to use floral accents on your wedding day. From elaborate suspended greenery to softly scattered rose petals, flowers will always be a welcome and breathtaking addition to wedding décor. Use any of these decoration concepts or even a combination of several and you will be sure to have a floral flawless wedding day!
