Wedding planners looking to achieve a whimsical sense of romance tend to opt for a soft colour palette of whites, creams and pastel pinks; but if you add some subtle tones of gold into the mix, you’ll instantly magic a layer of ‘milk and honey’ luxe that some struggle to conjure. With these colour combinations, the possibilities are endless. We’ve worked with Hydrangea World to bring you seven gorgeous style stealing boards that will help you create a captivating romantic ambience for your entire wedding day.
Hydrangeas provide a mini bouquet on each stem; use these to build you very own flower wall – a beautiful backdrop for wedding photos for both you and your guests.
Suspending garlands of flowers from ceilings, arches and even branches is a real indulgence, but well worth it for the added wow it brings.
Dress your table with gold-rimmed crockery and stemware, cream lace cloth and intersperse with candles and hydrangea centrepieces. Use a low painted vase or box and a single stem hydrangea complemented with soft roses, freesias or roses to achieve a rustic look, or clear glass posy vases for a more sophisticated feel; or go all out multi-stem in tall, tiered vases to create a show-stopping romantic display.
Hydrangea buttonholes and bouquets are simple to create at home. Arrange stems of green-to-white hydrangeas with eucalyptus leaves, or pinks and pinks-to-creams with a rich green to make the beautiful petalwork truly stand out.
From naked wedding cakes to tasty cakepops, use pinks, creams and golds as the base of your design and augment with hydrangea flowers. Delicately place individual flowers can give the effect of butterflies fluttering around your cake, but a dome of hydrangeas around the edge of on top tier of the cake can look equally as romantic.
If you truly want to embrace the floral theme, go for it in every aspects of your wedding wear; from hair combs and necklaces to embroidered, appliqued or hand-drawn petals on your shoes. Every extra detail counts.
But to weave that continuous romantic theme throughout your wedding day, add posies and arrangements into every corner of your venue. From hanging chair posies in your ceremony space to ornamental displays along key paths you and your guests will take. Together, they combine to create a magical atmosphere you’ll never forget.
