It’s the ciiiiiiircle of liiiiife…. Okay okay, maybe that’s a bit dramatic (and also? the last time you’ll hear me singing a song a) by Elton John and b) from a musical), but there’s no denying that a circle is an appropriate symbol at a wedding. It represents connectedness, eternity, the wedding rings. And when it’s made out of flowers – well, it’s just so gosh darn purdy. I’ve been noticing wreaths all over weddings for a while now, and every time I do they catch my attention, so today I thought we’d just bask a little in the eye candy.

Wreaths can be classically beautiful (especially with sumptuous florals)…

Or deliciously rustic…

And there are so many places you can put them – on the doors to your church, the gates to your reception, an empty tree or lamppost. Or use one to pretty up the bride and grooms’ chairs or the getaway car. Wherever you choose to place them, they make a charming impression on your guests, and a great photo opportunity.

I also love it when a couple does something different with their wreath, and uses it to playfully reflect their theme or motif. Just look at these sweet feather wreaths, for example. The one on the right is ideal for a peacock themed wedding.

Or the cork wreath (perfect for a wine farm wedding). Or how about using a simple foliage wreath with paper escort cards pinned to it instead of a table plan?

You could really think outside of the box for your materials. Paper, straws, or… plastic cups? Love these!

  1. I’d still be giggling at your Lion King reference if you hadn’t taken my breath away with so many gorgeous wreaths! Time to start thinking about one for fall…
