Flowers have made a comeback in a big way. For your wedding, consider thinking outside the bouquet and incorporate blooms in unexpected ways. Our friends at Placerville Flowers on Main have provided us with lots of great tips to help our readers stay on trend for their big day!


Instead of a traditional arch, think full, colorful, floral backdrop. This focal point at your ceremony will bring drama and romance to your special day in a unique way.

Floor-based Flower Pieces

Another way to highlight the ceremony space is creating a floor-based floral arrangement. Create patterns and shapes around the ceremony site using petals, flower heads and stems. This is a great design idea that adds color and texture without taking away from the bride and groom.

Crowns & Stems

Tossing petals will always be an adorable task for your flower girl, but help her feel extra special by adorning her with a floral crown and allowing her to throw the entire head of the flower and maybe the stems as well!


The emphasis always seems to be on the colors and the blooms, but incorporating foliage in your center pieces will help the flowers pop and will add even more color and volume to the design.

Bring on the color

Instead of sticking to a color or two in your wedding décor, consider different shades (think ombré) or tones (jewel, earth, fire) to expand your floral possibilities.

A huge ‘thank you’ to Placerville Flowers on Main for these trendy ideas!
