1. Floral wreaths
A floral wreath makes a delightful wedding photo prop, can be used as part of the wedding decor or to distinguish your own chairs at the reception. Mixed blooms and lots of leaves can feel extra romantic! If you're crafty, try making your own wedding wreath by following this DIY tutorial.

2. Ombre wedding aisles
Imagine the anticipation of walking down an ombre rose-petal strewn aisle! Word to the wise though - block off the center aisle with ribbon so that guests don't step on your florist's work before the procession.

Tip: Loose rose petals may be purchased from flower wholesalers in Singapore such as Far East Flora, 555 Thomson Road, Tel: 6251 5151 for around $6 for 200grams.

3. Single flower bouquets and centerpieces
Single flowers can make as much of an impact as arrangements with mixed flowers. Depending on the type of bloom you select, this can also turn out to be a great cost-saving option for couples on a budget.

4. Indoor garden weddings
We love the idea of bringing nature indoors especially for couples that share a love for mother earth. What better way to celebrate than by renting some lush potted plants and a green carpet grass aisle runner?

5. Minimalist arrangements
Single flower stems or a few stems bunched together and placed in mismatched bud vases, jars, bottles and other vessels can be just as impactful as larger, more extravagant floral arrangements. Start collecting your own vessels early (and ask friends and relatives to chip in) or check with your florist if they have already have a variety. This can also be a more wallet-friendly option for couples as you won’t have to spend on elaborate arrangements.

6. Tall branches
?Can’t afford a floral arch? Then how about framing your ceremony space with tall branches. You could even spray paint them gold (a fun DIY project) for a luxe modern look.

7. Succulents and all green arrangements
Using mostly greens such as ferns for floral arrangements will not only dress up your table but make it look ultra modern and chic. Including succulents as part of your décor is also another wonderful green addition to a table (and we think they make for ideal take-home favours for your guests as well!)

9. Hanging or suspended floral arrangements
Flowers need not be relegated to the tables, see if your florist can work with your venue to hang flowers and leaves from overhanging chandeliers or rafters to create a luxuriant wedding feel.

10. Floral crowns or coronets
The ultimate way to crown the bohemian goddess within you is to grace your head and those of your bridesmaids and flower girls with floral coronets. These look best when paired with tousled locks or braids and if you prefer not to use fresh flowers, consider a keepsake crown made with silk flowers instead. Try making your own fresh floral crown by following this DIY tutorial or a silk version with this tutorial.
