And we want to show these images especially to economical brides who are planning a wedding on a budget. If you are one of those women looking for cheap wedding flowers for a unique ceremony and reception you’ve definitely come to the right place!
We’ve planned on discussing about baby’s breath – one of the softest and delicate inexpensive types of flower a bride can choose for her Big Day. Baby’s breath is usually regarded and used as filler in larger bouquets or table decorations. But is seems that during the last few years, this type of plant has been “promoted” or updated to the status of a principal flower in a wedding bouquet.
We have to admit that we are very impressed to see how appealing modern baby’s breath decorations look like. And we brought a few relevant images to convince you of that. We know that flowers seem innocent and inoffensive to the wedding budget at first.
But when you come to realize that you need them to decorate every single corner and item of the wedding, things start to show off their real face. Flowers can be expensive, giving the fact that you have to purchase dozens of blooms for both the ceremony and the reception.

Baby’s Breath blooms are among the most cost-effective alternatives to the expensive calla lilies and orchids. But these flowers also have the quality of looking very dainty, stylish and feminine. The tiny white fragile blooms carry the name of the softest types of flowers existing. These types of blooms are rarely considered for wedding decorations because of their small sizes. You have to use plenty of them to obtain a fuller look. Baby’s breath bouquets and décor arrangements are very popular for subdued bridal-looks and casual affairs.
We’ve collected a few unique flower decorations made exclusively for ceremony chairs from real weddings that we want to share with you today. Flowers are the quintessence of a wedding because of their precious meaning, elegant appearance, divine perfume and vibrant coloring. These are only a few of the many virtues flowers are gifted with. Nothing can compare to the natural beauty and charm of a flowered wedding décor.
N matter how many alternatives might emerge for this industry, flowers will always be the best choice for a wedding.

So, before you hurry to replace the flowers with other crafty details, just take a look at these gorgeous arrangements created for the chairs. Nothing can beat the elegance, vibrancy and freshness of a flourish décor. But if you want something more unique, don’t hesitate to adopt some of our tips and tricks! You can create garlands and wreaths for the chairs made not only of flowers but also of leaves, fruits, exotic herbals and other plants that are available in the season of your wedding.
Green themes and greenery decorations are very trendy nowadays and they can always reflect the luxurious beauty of the nature. Combine your favorite flowers with a few seasonal herbs to compose a richer and trendier arrangement for the ceremony chairs and for your sweetheart seating place. You can see in the first picture just how charming and inviting a chair garland made of flowers and lush greenery can look like! This arrangement can suit perfectly any type of wedding planned outside the doors, in nature.
But the botanical vibe emanated by these garlands can also fit a greenhouse, garden, park or open field wedding. You can even choose this style for a backyard celebration and obtain a chic organic look! Those of you who are planning a destination wedding can take a cue from the second decoration. This couple opted for a simple décor planned for a wedding in Greece.
The chairs were beautifully adorned with rich leafy garlands accented by lavender colored peonies and berries. Natural & sweet, these chair decorations look divine! The wreath style is also beautiful for elegant outdoors weddings. Use that “something blue” to decorate your sweetheart chairs by mixing blue delphiniums with local greenery and create elegant seasonal wreaths.
When planning a romantic wedding, experts in field recommend modern couples to use a flower motif throughout the entire décor. This way they will obtain a charming setting that can look and feel warm, natural and inviting. And among the most flattering and chic flowers a contemporary bride can select for her wedding are anemones. We are crazy in love with these flower assortments and we can never get enough watching pictures of anemone wedding decorations.
We brought a few here to show to those who are looking for romantic inspiration for a modern-day affair. Anemones look at their best when used in casual bouquets and arrangements planned in a loose style. The black centers and the white petals form the most popular type of blooms used nowadays in anemone-inspired celebrations.
You can also find these blooms in pink and red, but the white and black assortments are by far the most elegant and eye-catchy ones. We recommend these types of blooms to those who are planning a modern ceremony and reception with a classy flair. There is always something very stylish about anemones that make them such attractive and suitable flowers for a wedding.
Their elegant appearance can convince even the most pretentious bride! Their exquisite unparallel beauty is a strong reality we can’t ignore, but when it comes to the symbolism part, these flowers seem to fail the exam. Anemones mean anticipation, forsaken and dying hope. These aren’t quite the significations you were looking for, right?
Well, giving the fact that their meaning is not written on their petals, you don’t have to mind these sayings. We don’t even know they are for real. And besides this, their beauty is just something that can get through all obstacles. Many brides use anemones and fear not of their pessimistic meaning. You can choose to ignore their symbolism too and focus on their charming look. We truly believe that any woman can fall in love with an anemone theme and choose to use it in her wedding after seeing a few relevant images, like the ones we’ve posted here.
The snowy white petals and the black speckled centers form the softest and most flirty blooms we’ve ever seen. They are great for black & white weddings and for old-Hollywood inspired affairs. You can incorporate this flower motif in all wedding supplies and obtain a cohesive look. If you prefer something more romantic and sweetish, opt for blooms in blush shades. The pinkish anemones are ideal for vintage inspired celebrations. The red blooms can also look spectacular when used with class and style. Anemones make great flower choices for modern weddings with a chic feel.
One of the most versatile types of flowers a bride can select for her wedding is hydrangea. This flower assortment is so lavish and generous in blooms and petals that you don’t even need to use too many stems to create an elegant ample arrangement fit for a wedding. Besides its lavish appearance, the hydrangea flower also comes in a wide selection of colors.
The palettes available for these flowers feature all shades and derived nuances you can think of! Hydrangea is also easy to work with and arrange in diverse types of bouquets and centerpieces. Not one of the most glamorous flowers, but definitely one of the most sought-after by many couples, hydrangea can make a terrific flower choice for a modern wedding.
Lush, eye-catchy and delicate, hydrangeas can help any bride obtain a romantic sophisticated décor for her wedding. We can’t think of a better type of flower for a big wedding or a more sophisticated type of table setting. This flower is used more often in destination weddings due to its tropical appearance. We think hydrangea can fit any type of formality, venue and season.
It depends on the color you pick for the bouquets. As we said before, this flower is versatile and it comes in a myriad of hues. A bloom can contain two, three and even more shades, like white, yellow and green, pink and red or white, green and blue. Anything purple, blue, pink and green can fit a hydrangea themed wedding.
We brought a few beautiful arrangements fit for reception tables. So, before you make any decision about the colors and design to use, let’s see first what arrangements we have here to present. The first hydrangea decoration features a classic style. Florists used white and peegee blooms to create a fabulous mix with spray roses, gray brunia, berries and dusty miller. This centerpiece can fit perfectly well a springtime wedding. We love the white bags used as table numbers and eventually as wedding favors for the guests. This type of centerpiece is versatile and it features a unique modern type of elegance that can fit a delicate bride or a refined reception.
The second hydrangea wedding centerpiece is created in a more romantic way. The couple picked a multicolor purple theme for the flowers. They used hydrangeas in mauve, pink, blue and violet and obtained a fabulous sensual effect. We can also see a few blooms of pink spray roses that make the tablescape look classier. Want something affordable? Opt for a simpler style, like in the last picture. Use white pots and fill them with bursts of peachy colored blooms for a budget-friendly wedding.
