Today we are shining the spotlight on the versatile decoration that is featured in many weddings: garlands! At most weddings, garlands are comprised of leaves, flowers, or a mixture of the two. All sorts of foliage can be twined or braided together to form a beautiful, natural decoration. Vibrant flower garlands create an instant sweet pop of color that immediately brighten up a space. However, garlands can be made out of nearly anything. Practical garlands of twinkling lights provide a soft glow from overhead, whereas ribbon-and-paper garlands add an intriguing aesthetic to an otherwise blank corner.
Garlands can also take on many different forms. If your ceremony incorporates an altar or gazebo, string garlands of flowers or foliage around the beams and roof to personalize the moment. If linens are draped in the background, use a leafy garland to outline the linens and pull the look together. Tie small garlands in a circle on a wood or metal frame to create instant wreaths. For a more garden party look, drape “blossoming” garlands over tables and signs to give the impression of bushes growing freely. Don’t like garlands on the reception tables? Tie the garlands to the backs of the chairs; it’s a simple way to dress up boring rental chairs. With so many uses and styles, wedding garlands are a fun way to fill a space and personalize your day.
