    • Take inspiration from the season when selecting your colour palette. Channel lush spring gardens or crisp autumn leaves.
    • Loosely bound bouquets have a free-spirited feel.
    • Display potted blooms of various sizes around your venue and encourage special guests to take them home as a living gift.
    • Bring a whimsical air to side tables and windowsills with clusters of glass vessels, each filled with a single flower in the same hue.
    • Add interest by incorporating vases of varying heights.
    • Decorate trees or bare boughs with lanterns and festive bunting.
    • Place vintage poetry or song books haphazardly on side tables, opened to your favourite verses.
    • Add an heirloom brooch to your bridal bouquet.
    • For a twist on tradition that retains an old-fashioned appeal, have your flower girl or page boy release pale balloons instead of scattering petals.
    • Hark back to the days when ladies brought a plate by asking guests to bring a dessert to share. Mark each guest’s or couple’s contribution on the dessert table with a name tag that complements your theme.
