How to recreate this country garden wedding look

For your wedding flowers use a mix of colours. Imagine a meadow of wildflowers: there’s a glorious mixture of colours in there, right? So use pink and blue, white and yellow and include your favourites if you can: daisies and sweet peas look gorgeous, cornflowers are striking and big rose blooms make a beautiful statement.

  1. Decide on a theme – this could be a colour, a flower, a season or a style such as vintage. Different colours look good for different seasons – for winter weddings gold, silver and deep reds work well and for summer bright and pastel colours.
  2. Think about what colour the table linen will be – white or cream is very classic, soft green gives a natural country feel and brighter coloured linens offset an exotic look.paper-roses-in-mini-pots-wedding tables by Natural Design
  3. Order samples of your favourite decorations and favours and try them out before committing to a larger order. You could even do a ‘mock up’ table.
