So Kimye went for a wall of flowers to accent her wedding ceremony, do you fancy something as grand? Today we’ve got lots of ideas, from the simple or traditional, right through to a DIY wool garland. Dressing your altar whether it’s inside or out has just become a serious business!

We’re quite taken with the large hanging sign above. It’s a really unique idea and you could choose whatever quirky and loved filled words you want! Or maybe, if you’re tying the knot traditionally in a church, these ideas from Kinvara Flowers are stunning and will no doubt add some floral life to your ceremony.

If there are trees, poles, plinths even old fashioned ladders let your florist go to town and dress them, they’ll make a great ceremony centrepiece. If they are moveable even better, have them transferred to your reception and they will dress your venue just as well!

What about this for an unusual idea? Dress your ceremony up as your front room! At least you’ll feel relaxed. Using a bookcase as a focal point and carefully dressing with florals and personal possessions will give your guests something really bespoke to look at.

Completely cost effective and offering a really modern look, hanging paper streamers or ribbon are one job you could do ourself. Once your wedding is over how cool would this look hanging over your bed?

No two ways about it, paper flowers are a great idea! Such a funky look.
