To me, wreaths used to be synonymous with Christmas and I find those evergreen arrangements with the red berries absolutely gorgeous! I did however (only recently!) discover that wreaths can look just a stunning, if not more stunning, when used at weddings! And seeing as they are such an "impact-piece" you won't need many of them to create that wow-effect you're after.
They would work so well on the doors to your chapel, or your reception area and may be the first peek your guests get of your wedding flowers, your theme and your chosen wedding colours. Smaller wreaths can also be placed on the pews..or, as in the picture above, you can use them as signs for your "Bride" and "Groom" reception seats...I've seen them used as centre-pieces of reception tables, and of course many brides are wearing small floral wreaths as bridal-crowns..the possibilities are endless :-)

I would be lying if I said I've never had a daydream (or 2!) where my head was adorned by a huge diamond-and-pearl-encrusted-tiara like the one Princess Diana used to wear…gorgeous, right?
But ladies, I think I love the modern day, more subtle, tiaras brides are wearing now even more! They still add that extra bit of sparkle and personality to your look, but they don't steal the show or detract from that stunning dress of yours.
Here are a few of my favourites:
Such a fresh, bouncy, summer'ey colour..Aqua is perfect for your summer wedding and can easily be used on its own, or paired with White, Cream, Blush or even Coral. Love it! x
This past weekend we attended a wedding where the lovely couple entered the ceremony-area on bicycles - I absolutely loved it, as it was just so totally "them"! Now I realise it is probably not for everyone, and even I wouldn't have wanted to go for a bike-ride while wearing my wedding dress, but they do make for lovely props when photo-time arrives...have a look:
