Decorating with oversized flowers

When I got married about a year and a half ago I dreamed up a reception overflowing with oversized flowers. Together with my mom, we filled the garden reception site with huge paper flower centerpieces, bouquets, and flourishes. To this day, I smile when I think of how it turned out. Ever since then I’ve seen oversized flowers blooming everywhere (pun intended). And now that it’s time to start planning those spring weddings, I thought it’d be nice to show some of the ways that oversized flowers can be added to any wedding.

These are the oversized paper flowers that lined the entrance of my wedding reception site. You could use these as centerpieces or decoration for an empty space for your site. Photo from Ali DeGraffBrittany

    I have much love for this look. So much so that I’m making some for a shoot for Dashing magazine next week!

    I love the boldness of it as headpiece.It’s edgy and graphic and romantic at the same time which I like. Definitely not for a shy bride.

    I actually wouldn’t mind receiving a single red rose the size of the bottom left for Valentine’s.
